BlueHost India Shared Hosting Review

BlueHost is one of the oldest and most reputable shared hosting companies on the Internet. Here’s my view of BlueHost. 

BlueHost shared hosting comes in three different packages and you can choose the one that is right for you according to your unique needs.

  • One website go for starter package.
  • Host multiple sites go for “plus” package.
  • If your needs include using HTTPS, go for the business pro package which comes with one dedicated I.P and SSL.
TIP: If your website audience from India? Get 10x faster speeds by choosing India hosting.

BlueHost is cheaper long-term (ie, after a year), and was always cheaper for what you get in features.

BlueHost Pro plan pricing - for unlimited databases (important because that’s how many WordPress sites you’ll be able to install), unlimited storage, and domain mapping. 

They will often discount if you register for a longer time period.


BlueHost uses cPanel, which is so far one of the easiest hosting panels– which is the industry standard. 

They have also added several educational options in addition to the big green Install WordPress button. 

BlueHost is one of very few shared Web hosting companies which will allow you to access SSH.


On a random check – Blue Host has a 3 second wait for phone support.

Hosting Features

BlueHost offers unlimited hosting resources

This means that you can host unlimited files, and use unlimited bandwidth. Blue Host doesn’t limit them on the Plus plan.

BlueHost has set 256 megabytes by default. 

Another important feature of hosting is the memory limit – especially if you are setting up WordPress hosting.
