One Size Fits All: Bluehost Review

July 17th, 2011

What are the advantages of a single package-fits-all, such as Utah-based Bluehost offers?  Whether you are putting up a personal website or planning an ecommerce outfit, you will pay the same and get the same from this provider according to this review.  And as you might expect from such an arrangement, the price is middle-of-the-road.

The simplicity is one advantage, with no confusion over which features you get with your plan, as everyone gets the same.  So while Bluehost, at $6.95 a month, may not appeal to the user looking primarily for affordability, it would be hard to find such a feature-rich package elsewhere on a lower cost plan.

Some might argue that this single plan gives less flexibility than the usual three or more packages aimed at different kinds of users, but Bluehost has been doing this since 1996 and currently hosts over a million websites.  They also claim to be gaining 20,000 new customers a month and say they constantly improve their services.  So perhaps they are doing something right.
