Detailed review of BlueHost Hosting

Designed with brains and brawn. BlueHost claims they have the solution to making hosting simple.

About The Company

​BlueHost is a big name is hosting, mentioned by marketers like Pat Flynn and Ryan Moran. Having a very reputable corporate image and clean design BlueHost stands out as a professional brand in the hosting market place. I will say this multiple times during this review "I am impressed with the marketing of BlueHost".

Founded in 2003 and hailing from Utah, BlueHost is part of the Endurance International Group or EIG for short. EIG is a large collective of brands that empower the small business owner. In 2010 BlueHost was added to the EIG family, along with many other hosting providers.

The company began to provide small business owners with focused business website hosting services. The features and functions BlueHost provides, even on the most basic shared hosting plan customers will see benefits of its use. Super fast hosting and completely scalable, they have made the service as newbie friendly as possible with 1 click installs.

Who Would Use BlueHost?

​Narrowing down the appeal of BlueHost to a particular demographic, doesn't do the hosting provider any justice. ​BlueHost is one of the best all rounder in the hosting space. Perfect for those starting their first blog, small to medium businesses and ecommerce and larger businesses on a the more robust hosting plans.
