Blue Host Complete Review
BlueHost has only a shared hosting solution, which is ideal for a small to the medium-sized website, and usually, their plan fits all the needs that a small business website needs. For only $6.95 / mo, you can get a free domain name, unlimited space, and data transfer and they allow you to host as many sites you want on a single account. All this is possible with a prepaid one-year subscription.
BlueHost Control Panel – cPanel
BlueHostâ€™s servers are using the popular cPanel. With this powerful and simple to use control panel, customers are able to learn fast and put their website online with ease. The control panel comes with lots of features such as the domain, email accounts, and database management, file management, script installer, website traffic analyzer, and many more.
The script installer (SimpleScripts) is the best what you get: this will help you to install your favorite script, blog, cms, eCommerce system in minutes without touching any file or database. With SimpleScripts you can install many useful scripts like WordPress, Joomla, phpBB, Drupal, b2Evolution, ZenCart, osCommerce, and many more. BlueHost supports the Ruby on Rails web framework if you may want to use it.
Different scripts or applications can slow down or stop the server where your shared hosting account is located. Using too much CPU or RAM, a website can damage all the sites hosted on the same server, not only yours but other customers’ websites as well. To prevent this kind of troubles, BlueHost has developed a unique system, which offers much higher protection and can easily detect where the problem comes from. They are calling this VPS protection, and you can get this for a price of a shared account.
