Editor review

BlueHost is one of the few hosting companies that get it right. Excellent customer support, fast servers, and a great price.

The control panel is very easy to use and accomplish what you need to. The control panel is accessed from a link on the upper right corner of the Bluehost homepage.

After sign in you can access cPanel (the technical control panel) your domains, billing, account upgrades (if you need any) and most important the customer support center. All pages well laid out and essy to find your way around.

Good Tech support:
We asked a few support questions and received fast helpful answers.

3 Benefits to using Bluehost
* Good Price
* Reliable service
* Good knowledge of Joomla

Conclusion
Bluehost provides an excellent service for shared hosting. They found what they do best and made it better. If you are not sure who to use for your next hosting company, Bluehost is worth considering.

Very Reliable Joomla Web Host

Reviewed by: Paul Cowley
Reviewed on: January 22, 2013

Overview

We at Joomla Hosting have been very impressed with Bluehost. We were impressed so much, that we moved this website www.joomlahosting.com to a Bluehost shared account. We do not receive free hosting from Bluehost.

Bluehost sticks to what they do best which is shared hosting. If you need dedicated or VPS servers another hosting companies will be a better fit, but if you are looking for shared hosting Bluehost is worth considering.

Pros and Cons

Pros
UNLIMITED Disk Space & Data Transfer
Knowledgeable Support Staff
Fast servers with Excellent uptime
They host thousands of Joomla sites
Simplescripts

I found it very confusing looking for the best hosting company for my joomla site. So many companies and so many reviews. I finally decided on bluehost because of their support and close ties with the open source community, they are also a large well know hosting company.

After signing up I was able to get my Joomla site up and running without to much effort.

So far my site has not gone down and the pages load fast.

Glad I made the decision to use bluehost, now I can focus on building my website and not worrying about which hosting company to use.
