Pros

According to their pricing, the features are pretty good, and I recommend the shared hosting of Bluehost for beginners.
We have been with Bluehost for years for a reason, best value, best hosting, best overall support.
Not like some other web hosting services that would charge higher with little benefits. I really love their Managed WordPress plan, it's the best for me and that's what I use.

Pros

That was awesome for our timelines...since we had budget 3 weeks for it. The ease with which I did it made me extremely glad that I decided to DIY it.
And fast resolution was their key strength when it comes to chat support. It was also a very good value for the money, uptime was good, servers were quite fast as well.
Pricing is perfect, support is amazing, even the server performance is outstanding with almost 99.9% uptime. Hostgator provide WHM/cPanel that make the server configuration and management easier.

Cons

Need more control on customer email spamming, we had issues before from some companies putting us on a blackmail list simply because some of Bluehost customers used their email for spamming.
In the many years that I have used Bluehost, I have had very few issues. Thinking back, I recall having issues with page speed, but this was very limited and it happened several years ago.
It's near impossible to get someone on the phone or via chat. I was having an issue with my email that took days to fix because it was so hard to get in touch with a customer service representative.

Cons

Their customer service is shocking. A few years ago, Hostgator suffered a severe outage, and reaching their customer support was almost impossible.
Page does not load properly, or sometimes shows an IP related problem from my country, this is really annoying.
Is almost sure that you're going to have problems learning to use this service if you're a newcomer.

The Best Bluehost Alternative

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Like Bluehost, It comes with all the essential set of features such as free 1-year domain registration, free SSL certificates, free email, and one-click WordPress install.

Cons

Cloudflare CDN isn't included in Hatchling and Baby plans. It's only included in the Business plan.

Okay for shared hosting, not much else

Reviewed a year ago

If you're familiar with a typical CPanel setup, it's pretty easy. If you're new at this type of stuff, you will probably need to read step-by-step tutorials to figure many steps out.

Pros

Good price especially if you get it on a promotion like end of year or Cyber Monday.

Cons

Owned by EIG, who owns Bluehost, iPage and several other brands. Which means you can expect the same mediocre support. Granted, if you're only using a cheap shared hosting account, you shouldn't really expect real-time phone support, but when you do get someone on chat or email, it would be nice if they were more technically savvy. I rarely had to contact support but when I did it was because I needed more technical support than sending me help file links that I had already read.
