Bluehost Godaddy


Sub-domain: These are domains that are created when you add a prefix to your main domain. So, if your website has a forum section, and you make it so that people can get to the forums by typing mywebsite.forum.com, then that is known as a “sub-domain.” You get 25 of these under a basic package, and unlimited under plus, prime and business pro packages.

The whois information for any domain name is available to anyone on the internet. When you add domain privacy to your registration, ($11.88 per domain per year) the contact information listed in the whois database will be Bluehost. You will still be the owner of the domain name, but your contact details will not be accessible through the public whois information.

Though inherently a blogging tool, WordPress can be manipulated into a web builder, CMS, or online gallery editor, and it’s been called all of the above. WordPress is highly customizable, and sites built with it can easily be tailored to match any brand aesthetic. WordPress hosting packages are very reasonably priced, and it’s easy to get started. We recommend InMotion Hosting if you’re interested in building a site with WordPress.
HostGator promises that pages load at blazing speed worldwide without having to configure your caching and CDN. Experience up to 2.5X faster load times due to super charged cloud architecture, low-density servers, CDN, and multiple caching layers. Your website content is managed more efficiently, enabling dynamic content requests to be processed lightning-fast
Second, GoDaddy provides a ton of services beyond hosting. They were originally founded as a domain registrar, but now provide a huge range of business services. I’ve also written how their domain services compare to NameCheap and how their hosting compares to InMotion and SiteGround. But it’s important to “weight” your desire for convenience across a range of business products in addition to your desire for the best web hosting choice.
They have their own "intrusion detection/prevention system" which stops their service from getting hacked, but I found out it doesn't actually protect my website. I reluctantly let the student fix my site after giving him my account details and he managed to find all kinds of flaws from the inside as well. He fixed most of them within a couple of days, from bad configuration, bad plugins, and hiding my personal email/account.
Both hosts offer either Softaculous or Fantastico so installing WordPress is a breeze, and there are a lot of automated tools in order to make managing your website easier. Again, I think it’s a bit easier to find these things in the Bluehost interface if you’re new to dealing with web hosting, but once you know your way around, HostGator is also easy to use.

MySQL – If you plan to have a lot of data on your site or you want to collect a lot of data with your website, then you will need MySQL to do that. Bluehost gives you the tools you need so you can not only collect but process and manage all the data you want. As we mentioned, there are different packages you can choose to ensure that you have enough storage space for everything.
It took me 20 to 30 minutes in a chat queue and another 15 or 20 minutes going back and forth with the person on the other end of the chat to get a simple contact email for bluehost–because there are none published anywhere on their site or online. Not for basic questions–about anything. Not for feeback–about anything. Not for suggestions–about anything.
I am not sure why, but Bluehost is overrated. I have a VPS with them and I find their servers way too vulnerable to hacking. Every 2 months they shut down my VPS with NO warning because infected with malwares. Despite the fact that the fix is easy, they will not help. They advise to hire a service that charges between $30 to $700 per domain to protect. Last week after my clean up, it took them 12h to put my sites back online, because I was calling Tech Support, otherwise I would have stayed down….. They absolutely don’t care.

While disappointing, it is still admirable that the agent has admitted to not knowing something as opposed to offering me an expensive service package. Overall, I can say that the agent was courteous but didn’t provide me with the help I needed. Nonetheless, if you like using phone support and don’t have many difficult questions, this might be a pretty good option.
The response times are not what you would call “stable” but they are really quick. There is no set response time you can be expecting, with the majority of the results going around 100-400ms. You can also expect spikes once every few hours, with the response times increasing to nearly 2 seconds. But they are not common enough to consider them a problem.
ou three times more. It is also impossible to unsubscribe from add-ons unless you contact them directly because they disable this option in your management settings. Also downgrading from Pro to more basic options is made highly unattractive because they make sure that for EXISTING customers the downgrading has different price so you are STUCK with your PRO option even if you don't need it. Yet when you complain about it, they point to the well hidden pricing pages saying that all information was there from the beginning.
I have hosted seven of my customer’s websites on Bluehost for nearly ten years. Not once during that time have my clients lost one minute of hosting service for any reason. Part of the reason for that I believe is because of the periodic updating of their servers. Bluehost appears to be operating and meticulously maintaining state of the art servers. Another factor in Bluehost’s outstanding performance in the quality and skill of the technical support representatives. When I have had a question about online renewal of my customers domain licenses or hosting or file uploads I can confidently tell my customers that I will have an answer for their questions in a matter of minutes. My confidence in Bluehost technical support was developed over those same seven years in never once having to wait for my call to be picked-up, never once having a support person provide an incorrect answer or solution to a request, never once having to ask a representative if they could transfer me to someone who spoke English. I will always reward a vendor that provides this level of service and this level of professional integrity, with my loyalty.
