    I've been with bluehost for almost two and a half years, it's all good till recently I've experienced numerous down time in the last week, 5 times to be exact, about 40 mins each.

    I don't know what's going on with bluehost, but they suck right now!!!

    Anybody has same experience recently? I'm considering switching to other hosting companies, any ideas?

    Are you asking about whether you should stick with Bluehost or migrate to another host?

    I would recommend migrating to another non-EIG host personally. 5 downtimes in 1-week isn't acceptable!

    Any recommendations? I've had enough with them for the last week!!

    My site's still down for over 2 hours right now. You can actually get nothing from their live support even the reason for all this except "Please be patient, we are trying our best to fix this problem, i understand blah blah blah..."

    Check the main "Webhosting" section (noobs can't post links) for the Site5 free 6 month hosting deal I posted. Site5 has knowledgeable support and you will get a response quickly. They can handle the migration for you.

    I noticed all my sites seem to be slow lately that are hosted with Bluehost and the WP Dashboard too. They need to fix up.

    BlueHost is nothing special with hosting and their affiliate managers are fucking terrible. If you are thinking about using BlueHost in any way, just go somewhere else. Someone else will have similar pricing and no doubt will have better customer service.

    Check out WireNine... I've posted an offer for their company on here before for their 99 cent single domain hosting plan. They also have a 50% off first invoice coupon floating around somewhere as well as a $0.01 first month special on their website. I have two sites hosted with them right now, no complaints and no down time.

    I have been with Bluehost for 3 years and like them. Their customer support is really good too. No complaints here.

    Question regarding Bluehost Reseller. Does it include a free domain reseller account? Or do I have to purchase a subscription separately?

    Also, I'm quite pissed off Bluehost as well..every reseller seem to offer this free domain reseller account but I can't seem to find it..or it's just a labyrinth waiting to be explored.

    Help? Don't want to create another thread, so here. :D

    This thread is unrelated to your question and it is a few weeks old so perhaps you should start a new thread.

    To answer your question, I think you should ask BlueHost directly.
