If you have looked on the internet for web hosting reviews, I am sure you have come across a recommendation for Bluehost. Sadly I always shake my head when I see someone that I feel respect for recommend Bluehost and then if you ask them if they use Bluehost and it's always some excuse as to why they don't use Bluehost personally. And there is a reason for that. Bluehost has been nothing but problems for so many people that it's hard to ever recommend them. A2Hosting, on the other hand, has better performing hardware and better support. You get a whole lot more at around the same price.

A2 Hosting Pros

  • Uses SSD Drives
  • Free SSL Certificate
  • US Based Support

Bluehost Pros

  • Unmetered Hosting

A2 Hosting Cons

A2Hosting is slightly more expensive than other shared hosting, but they more than makeup for it with higher quality hosting.

Bluehost Cons

It has been my experience that Bluehost is a hosting company you would do well to avoid. It's hard to say that, but its the truth. The main problems are extremely slow page load time and serious security issues. Don't be surprised of your website is shut down because it was hacked into, and then Bluehost will ask you for $300 to fix it. The thing is, it's their servers that are insecure. Now part of the problem is that there are so many so called guru's that recommend them, but they don't personally use them. The only reason they do that is because they are paid a lot of money.
