Way back in 1996 the web hosting industry saw the introduction of yet another web host in BlueHost.com, another addition to an already growing list of service providers. Many other service providers have come and disappeared since then, but with their reliable service coupled with friendly and patient support staff (rated as best support staff of 2004) BlueHost sits comfortably among the best in the hosting business today.
Their customer service is good and accurate. They are fast becoming one of the best choices for web hosting with a great price and fantastic features. While not as big on some of the 'extras' (ex. Site builder) their reputation and package is fantastic. They are both affordable and reliable.
BlueHost is the first genuine web host where the large disk space and bandwidth offered is not a mere marketing gimmick. They are making sure that you have the ability to exhaust the allocated resources by allowing you to host up to 6 different websites under the same hosting account!
The outstanding services of BlueHost have been recognized by the industry through awards year after year. Last year (2004) they won the Best Support Award. In 2003, they bagged the best new host award from 100BestWebHosting
Website Plug in Scripts: - The use of scripts or "plug in" on a website can save webmasters a great deal of time by forgoing the often tedious task of installing, testing and connecting the scripts to the database with the correct usernames and passwords. BlueHost offers a very large number of scripts such as Bulletin Board (Message Forum), mail scripts such as form-mail, guest book and chat as well as many popular blogs and content management scripts. You can even use a help center script for customers to open support tickets to get help from you.
Fantastisco Library: - Fantastisco is an add-on to the powerful CPanel control panel. It allows you to install 48 popular scripts with just a few clicks. These scripts include blogs, content management tools, forums, polls, guest book, shopping-carts, picture galleries, mailing lists, Wikis, etc. With Fantastisco, you no longer need to manually install each script yourself, which by the way, could be a nightmare for non-savvy users.
Ecommerce Support: - Many business and even personal web site owners want to sell products via their website. This can be an easy task if your web host provides the right ecommerce scripting and server software technologies to get your online store up and running. BlueHost makes sure that customers can do this by providing features like the SSL Secure Server so that sensitive customer information such as credit card data cannot be intercepted by malicious persons over the Internet, osCommerce and Agora shopping carts that let you set up an online store, and other password and encryption technologies to insure data security.
Free Domain Name For Life: - You will get a free domain name if you sign-up as a user for 1 or 2 years. And this domain will be free for life as long as you continue to host your website with them!
