Pro and Cons of Bluehost Hosting-:
Pros of Bluehost Hosting-:
1. Outstanding Server Up time-:
Server uptime is the most important factor for web hosting because downtime of server means loss of revenue. Standard uptime of hosting companies is 99% but not all hosting companies achieve this uptime. Bluehost is outstanding with 99.98% on shared Hosting and 100% on VPS, Dedicated server and Cloud Hosting.
No hosting provider can provide 100%uptime guarantees, therefore, Bluehost 99.98% uptime is best among its competitor. If you see below image Bluehost yearly downtime is 1h 45m 11s which is outstanding.
2. Incredible Server speed-:
Bluehost uses the latest server configuration.it depends upon the type of service you have signed up. they disclose what type of server they are using. server speed depends upon what type of hosting plan you have purchased from Bluehost. To maintain good server speed on shared hosting is quite a bit difficult because the same server space used by many users but still on a shared hosting Bluehost performance is far better than its competitor. Shared Hosting considered as Slowest Hosting on all hosting companies but still Bluehost speed on shared hosting is awesome as compared to its competitor.
3. Daily Backup of Your Data-:
Backup is the most important aspect of hosting because you may not know what may happen to your hosting. Backup is the most common and regular task to run a website. Bluehost takes daily backup but it is a basic backup. if you want to change your hosting provider then you can download a full backup. Bluehost Basic Backup plan I included in Every Hosting plan. If you are serious about backup of your website you can use Third Party Backup tool.
Cons of Bluehost hosting-:
1.Increase of Renewal price-:
At first time purchase, Bluehost provide a huge discount to make new customer but at the time of renewal, they charge very high. This is not the only case with the Bluehost almost all hosting companies does the same. It is always recommended from my end to go for long term plan while purchasing hosting for the first time.
2. Unlimited Hosting is Limited-:
Bluehost provide unlimited hosting and disk space on shared hosting but in actual, there is a limitation. if you any WordPress plugin or Theme consuming more server resource then they might tell you to change theme or plugin or to upgrade hosting plan.
3. Higher cost for Upgrade-:
If your website getting lots of traffic on shared hosting and you are planning to upgrade hosting to dedicated, VPS or cloud hosting then you have to pay higher cost fr it.
4. No free site migration-:
Hosting is a very tough business getting a new customer and winning the trust of a customer is a tough job Most of the hosting services provider like Namecheap offer free website migration but on Bluehost, you have to pay money for it
