The best experience I had with them was when I first signed up. From then on, it's been an absolute nightmare.

Blame the Customer for Colossal Incompetence: The Bluehost Service Protocol

This company is horrible, and borderline criminally incompetent, Their "migration team" was tasked with moving our e-commerce website to their hosting service and managed to destroy 70% of our nav bars, which had drop-down menus that no longer drop down for our customers to buy our products. THANKS FOR THE TOTAL INCOMPETENCE, BLUEHOST! And, on top of that, they turned it around on us to provide proof that our nav bar buttons and drop-downs were working prior to them completely screwing up! Unbelievable! We are losing untold amounts of money daily now, for which reparations WILL be made. How are they still in business???

Auto renew nightmare

Hosting as been fine but watch out for the promotions. Accept a "great" promotion and they will auto renew your account for way more then the agreement price. You get no advance notice of the auto renew and you have a limited time to contest the ($250/mon) charge since its through a third party (SEO Works). Not a good business practice by any standard and damaging for any new business trying to get started. Next stop, the Better Business Bureau.

Don't go anywhere near blue host

I signed up for a domain registration and web hosting package, including "private" domain registration which was guaranteed to keep my personal information off of the Whois domain listing. I know for sure that I signed up for the private registration service. As soon as I signed up, I started being contacted by design companies about my domain. I am now getting a barrage of emails, and even postal mail associated with the domain I registered through them that was promised to be listed under their information in Whois. I canceled the domain and hosting account with them within the day because their web-building interface was not as user friendly as they claim, and I can't afford a web designer to help me. In any event, I've contacted bluehost several times regarding the spam associated with the domain registration. The only accountability they can give me is, "Well, sorry, but it looks like you did not sign up for the private registration and your domain was registered with your info."

Bluehost Violated ICANN regulations and fraudulently transferred my hosting account

Bluehost has committed fraud and allowed my account to be hacked. Use literally anyone else, if this would affect you negatively-- because they do ZERO to protect you or prevent it, and they operate fraudulently.

Officially Developer Hostile

They recently discontinued ticket support and are adding plugins to websites without permission or notification. They also refuse to remove these plugins when a developer notices they are affecting the sites. I am pulling my developer account from Bluehost because I simply can not work with the restrictions they are placing on my account.
