Keep It Short & Simple (KISS)

Powering more than 2 million websites, Bluehost is one of the famous and recommended web hosting providers in the industry. It’s strange that the result of my samples shown the opposite – there were more complaints than compliments especially on the server uptime of Bluehost. After some detailed research and I found out the root cause – Bluehost was hit by 2 massive outages affecting their customers worldwide on New Year’s Eve of 2014 and Apr 16, 2014. This is why we see so many resentments by the users over the internet.

Conclusion

Bluehost is still one of the top picks recommended by most well-known bloggers. Personally, I don’t think they will place their long term business at risk by allowing the massive outages to recur without having appropriate preventive measures. Having said that, Bluehost’s package doesn’t really attract me as I could get similar features with a lower price or similar price with some better features from other web hosting providers. What’s your say?
