Compare 17 Bluehost Web Hosting Plans

Bluehost is a popular web host with servers in Utah in the USA. It is a sister company of the at least equally famous HostGator. I believe they have some issues with their support not being fast enough and not being knowledgeable enough about their hosting plans. I had several choppy discussions with their  pre-sales support trying to eek out the details for these plans.

The price will change depending on how long billing cycles you choose and how long you pre pay for. If you select 1 year the price is $49.99/mo. 2 years it is $39.99/mo and for 3 years it goes all the way down to $29.99/mo. If you want to pay on a month-to-month basis the hosting will cost $69.99. If you prefer to pay monthly I would suggest to check out the plans from another hosting company which specializes in monthly memberships here. Your first bill is on discount (currently at least) so you can save much by committing to be their customer for up to 3 years. Be noted that the hosting plan will renew for the same duration and at the normal non-discounted price.

This hosting plans comes with fast SSD storage and a custom designed cPanel control panel to make managing a WordPress site easier. The server will take daily backups but you need to purchase the restore service in cPanel if you need to use the backups. Domain Whois Privacy is $0.99/mo which is very expensive. Bluehost SEO Tools is a bundle with SEO resources and tips and costs $2.99/mo. You can get a lot of SEO tips for free on the internet though, check out out our guide and lists with resources here.

Need to pay for at least 1 year of hosting in advance to get this price of $83.99/mo. You can get great discounts for paying in advance for longer contracts. $71.99/mo for 2 years and $59.99/mo for 3 years. If you want to pay month-to-month it costs $119.99/mo.

All of the Bluehost web hosting plans include a FREE Domain. Domain Whois Privacy costs an extra $0.99/mo with this plan which is pretty expensive compared with some domain name registars that give away this for free. All their VPS plans comes with SSD storage included in the price. SiteLock Monitoring is another $1.99/mo and can be very useful to have – at least if you really need your site to always be 100% healthy and to reduce the potential downtime from malware and virus attacks by hackers. The SEO extra feature costs $2.99/mo and is not something I would recommend considering how the product (which consists of SEO guides) can easily be replaced by free info found on reputable site online – More info here.

Servers are located in the USA, in Provo in Utah.

Conclusion

Lots of power at a low prices ranks the Bluehost VPS plans as some of the best value plans you can get. Decent amount of SSD storage, a free domain and also live support are great benefits for choosing this plan.

However, the 30 day money back guarantee could be longer, and they could have accepted more payment options. They also do not allow adult content to be hosted on their servers.

1 year pre payed billing cycle required to get the price of $99.99/mo. 2 years: $89.99/mo. 3 years: $79.99/mo. If you select month-to-month billing the price will go up to $149.99/mo.

Every dedicated server from Bluehost comes with a free domain name. You get access to 24/7 live support which specializes in dedicated server support and works closely by the engineers that are maintaining the servers. The servers does not come with RAID-1 as a default only as a supported feature. It is not easy to compare the dedicated servers from Bluehost with most other hosts because they do not share what models their CPU is and at what frequencies the cores are running at.

Domain Whois Privacy is $0.99/mo with this server and lets you hide your personal name and contact information from your domain information that will be posted on lots of sites on the internet. If you need whois privacy it would be a little cheaper to register your domain name though another registrar instead of using the free domain provided by Bluehost. With other registrars you can domains for less than $10/year and FREE whois privacy.

Search Engine Jumpstart is a bundle with SEO resources and tips and costs $2.99/mo. You can get a lot of SEO tips for free, check out out our guide and lists with resources here. The SiteLock Monitoring scans daily for lots of bad stuff like malware. It costs $1.99/mo.

It is great that Bluehost does not charge a setup fee for their dedicated servers, and also that they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
