    Hello OP.. This is from my little experience. I have used both shared hosting from justhost and bluehost. Between those two, I suffer more downtime from bluehost. Needless to say, I stopped using them after my 1 year subscription ended. As for justhost, this is my 4th year with them. Im satisfied with their support. However, i decided not to continue anymore. Im looking to start fresh, with a new hosting, and ive been eyeing dreampress from dreamhost. Been saving for it, maybe gonna take a while..hehe (Im just not really successful in my IM endeavors since starting in 2010)

    Yes, bluehost is a good trusted hosting service provider just like hostgator. All you need - the scripts and more are in their kitty. I have been using them for about two years now. I encourage you to try them. Moreso their customer care is lively. good luck!

    lol , bluehost and just host are owned by same company. all big brands are owned by them.

    i changed from that company to servinio and it rocks. (because unlike other companies servinio provide you "your space" , you will not have to face slow loading due to server load cause by others)

    I would prefer to go with just host. It gives you fast, reliable service with affordable price.

    No two people are going to give the same answers when you ask them about the same hosting!

    > Bluehost has a clean admin panel, and a lot of features are available at the click of a button
    > They are ok most of the times. I use their shared hosting, and find performance a bit laggy. No problems with downtimes yet
    > They go back a while, and that adds up a bit of respect out there. But as someone else mentioned a lot of hosting companies roll up to a single owner, and I don't know how that impacts the way these companies conduct their business
    > I also find Bluehost more transparent - they publish the space occupied, CPU throttle applied to my websites, etc.

    it is good. but in fact. bluehost and justhost are the same company, so as hostmonster. even their staff and datacenter are the same .buy just host for a cheap price

    no they're not. i have hosting accounts with all the majors and blue host are one of the worst. slow servers, bad customer service, probably couldn't do worse than them.

    BlueHost is a reliable, established and reputable hosting company. I have been using BlueHost for almost 8 years for my online business. So far so good.

    I used Bluehost few years ago, and got suspended cause of excessive CPU usage (while of course, everything is "unlimited"....). Other than that, they were ok with price.

    If the blood was blue and the host was red then bluehost was gonna be good. They are "ok" for nothing serious like "personal blog" (personal opinion)

    Bluehost is indeed a reputable web hosting company. Their support service is excellent and their servers are also providing good resources and network up-time.

    I have been a customer with BH, Bad service, with really terrible customer service. I was not pleased with the support I was receiving and then they made me go through several unnecessary steps to finally cancel my account.
    Before you do decide to use BH make sure you have all the correct information before starting,

    Bluehost USED to be a good hosting company (past tense).
