Why Bluehost? Because they are the official WordPress recommended hosting provider.
Bluehost is one of the oldest web hosting companies on the web (founded in 1996-before Google). They are the largest brand name in WordPress hosting and host millions of websites, including several of our own.
Full disclosure: When you use our referral link to buy, we will charge a small commission and you do not need to pay additional fees. We will get this referral fee for recommending almost any other company, but we only recommend products that we personally use and/or believe will add value to our readers.
Well, everyone, especially: those who start a new blog or switch from WordPress.com to a self-hosted WordPress.org blog.
We wrote a complete article about WordPress.com and WordPress.org, but here is a summary of why you should use self-hosted WordPress:
- You will get a free domain name (only if you use Bluehost)
- You can access more themes and design customization options.
- You can install plugins.
- You can run your own ads without any restrictions.
- You can create your own store.
- You own and control your content (and on WordPress.com, you are subject to their terms of service, and they often show ads to your users unless you don’t pay them).
Bonus offer: Our team of experts will help you get started. Bluehost promises us that if you register using our referral link, they will compensate us for setting up your blog for you. We will even migrate your WordPress.com blog to self-hosted WordPress. Here is how to claim this offer:
- Use our referral link to register
- Fill out the form on this page and that's it!
Who should not use this offer?
This offer is not suitable for everyone. Our goal at Bluehost News is to guide users to make the best decision, whether we get paid or not.
The biggest problem here is the term "infinite space and bandwidth", and we want to explain it.
The way these shared hosting companies can provide such affordable prices is to allow multiple users to share a large server. By having multiple sites on the same server, they can reduce costs for everyone.
Think of the savings as taking a bus with your own car.
Having said that, there is no limitless thing. Although it says unlimited, you still have usage restrictions. If your site starts to take up a lot of server load, they will politely force you to upgrade. If they do not take this measure, it will have a negative impact on the overall performance of all other sites sharing the same server.
As traditional wisdom says, your management costs will increase with your business!
If your website receives millions of page views each month, then this $2.95 hosting plan will not be for you. You should consider getting a VPS or even managed WordPress hosting.
However, if you are just starting out or have a small business website, then you have no reason to pay hundreds of dollars a month for resources that you won't use. You should definitely make the most of this shared hosting service.
