Bluehost has been in the web hosting business since 1996. As of July 2010, Bluehost has over 2.2 million domains hosted on their servers. They are the 10th largest hosting company in the world and are one of the fastest growing web hosting companies.
Bluehost only offers a single shared hosting plan, and it requires a yearly upfront payment at a rate of $6.95/mo. There is no setup fee, and they offer a FREE domain name when you sign-up with them. The Bluehost webhost plan offers unlimited diskspace, unlimited domains and unlimited bandwidth.
Bluehost uses the popular cPanel control panel for managing your website. Here’s a look at their branded cPanel from my own account.
I like the version of cPanel that they are using because you can drag around the different panels and organize it in a way that works best for you. Bluehost offers simple 1 click installs of many popular web scripts including WordPress, ZenCart, phpBB using the SimpleScripts installer. For developers, Bluehost also supports the popular Ruby on Rails web framework.
