With more than two million websites using Bluehost as its service provider, the company has quickly adapted to being one of the largest on the market. This was achieved by increasing the amount of features and customizable options each client has, and it keeps them subscribing year after year. Bluehost was created in 2003 with the primary mission of making every customer happy by using every technological tool in existence. This has led Bluehost to offer more than four different kinds of hosting options, including VPS, cloud, domain, and shared, which is the most popular option. Staying true to their mission of providing the most options, Bluehost teamed up with WordPress to create a partnership that keeps the customer's best interests in mind. While all of the websites that Bluehost hosts are important, some of the most well known include those of Mercedes-Benz, Katy Perry, and Facebook.
Thirteen years ago, when Matt Heaton and Danny Ashworth officially created Bluehost, they had no idea the level of popularity it would achieve. The success from the company has stemmed directly from the amount of education both men received when they studied computer science at the Bringham Young University in Provo, Utah, the state where both men grew up and the city where they decided to locate the company's headquarters. Additionally, they're both huge fans of ping pong and love playing the sport. But the success can not only be attributed to these two men. In 2010, Bluehost teamed up with Endurance International Group to be able to get more funding for global expansion. In the last six years they've definitely been able to achieve that goal. The collaboration that Bluehost has with WordPress is just as important, especially for ensuring customer satisfaction.
Bluehost plus WordPress packages are available for as low as $19.99 a month, and they offer the best features of both services. The benefits are too many to be counted, but a large one is the access to WordPress's easy user interface as well as the advertising stipend that's included in most Bluehost packages. This is a feature that is unmated by most other providers, but one that is crucial to a website's success. They set up an agreement with Google and Bing among other popular websites so those who register with Bluehost can use some of the best advertising spots offered. This prevents the clients from doing extra, unnecessary work. Customer service is provided at all times for both of the services, so no questions ever go unanswered and your site can stay up and running 24/7. With the purchase of year long packages, a 30-day money back guarantee is included so you can be sure that you're making the right decision when it comes to your website. If WordPress isn't an essential feature, the shared options are the most popular that Bluehost has to offer.
Shared packages are available in three different sizes, all in one to three year options and in a variety of prices. The first plan is basic, and it's currently discounted to $2.95 per month. This package comes standard with one website, 50 GB of storage, and unmetered bandwidth. This works perfectly for those with a more personal reason for running their website, as well as with a lower traffic level. The other two options are called plus and prime, and they're both on sale right now for $5.95 per month. These two are for those who have a business purpose, or just a higher incoming traffic level. This provides the user with unlimited storage, unlimited website domains, and unmetered bandwidth. Clearly, Bluehost stays true to its mission of providing their customers with the widest variety of options available.
