    I mean it is rated as number one shared host.
    My webstes need 20 seconds to open!
    They tampered with my emails, and blocked them so I can send emails out, no notice, I was figuring out for the last few days why I cant send out newsletter with interspire.
    It is getting worse and worse with this host. Because I have a 20000 double optin list, they blocked my email so I cant send anymore. Now they are doing investigation if I am spamming people. I am not , it is just regular marketing!
    Such a horrible company, I have been paying 8 years for hosting with them.

    BUT IF I UPGRADE and pay double, they say, they will not block my emails

    Cunts!

    Why don't you try an email solution such as mailchimp?

    Dude, why don't you back everything up, move to another server then take legal action. They can't tamper with your stuff without authorization. They can run an investigation to see if you're breaking their terms and conditions, but that's it. I would take their asses to court. First compile all the data you have against them, move to another server then sue their ass.

    they put a block on my emails so I cant send them. They said I was sending spam, or triggered their email filters.
    THis is something new, they are messing with clients like that. Before Bluehost never did that. THey implemented this few months back.

    Now I have to wait 72 hours till they maka a conclusion.....Such a shit host. I am afraid if I move somewhere else I will be even have more problems.

    Look if you have a mailing list of course they are going to make your life hell. They are just a shared web host. Ive used them. yeh they aren't amazing but they are as bad as the rest.

    you have 2 separate issues
    1) speed of your sites
    2) email blasts

    1) speed of sites - this is something you should definitely raise as a concern immediately as a separate ticket number with them and fight it til the end

    2) email blasts - most shared hosts will stop you from this sort of activity. either get a dedicated server or use aweber or mail chimp or something like that.

    unfortunately you can't have the best of both worlds with shared hosting. that has been my experience anyway.

    Shared hosting is the wrong idea for what your using it as.

    Hmmm, i have never had a problem with Bluehost, except that when i asked them to transfer a domain from Namecheap, they asked of $50.. whereas Namecheap is totally free!
