    Had ipage for some months, there was a $1 a year promotion.

    I realized the sites I had on there were not performing as well as they should. Checking up on them, I found times where there were 6-60 second load times and even down time. Only good thing was their support and price.

    I just bought a bluehost plan and will see how it goes.

    Also transferring websites is a big pain in the a** if like me, you don't know what you're doing. I've learned a lot today about sql and filezilla :p

    I don't like your current choice, BlueHost.

    I hate when hosting provider makes big changes to CPanel, their CPanel is one big pain in the ass. I can suggest Hostgator or Arvixe.

    I'm not an user of Bluehost, but if your talking literally about the cpanel branded cPanel (I've seen people call plesk) then there is a reason. I'd say about 2-3 months back there was a major security hole that allowed hackers to break into the hosts and customers cpanel. The update was to fix it.
