Can I cancel BH now?
Please don't. It's better to open a 30 Day free trial account at Linux Hosts Inc. first to try them out and to find out if that's an ideal solution for you. You can ask the company's migration specialists to move all files from your current account to the new one. It doesn't matter how many files you have, how many web sites, or how complicated the move is. You won't be charged, it's all free. If you don't want to open a new account, you will have to make a backup of your sites and save it to your computer. See to it that your backup is complete and include data bases if you have them. Now you can use that backup to transfer the files to another provider.
So, when can I cancel BH?
You can cancel your current BH account once your files have been successfully transferred to your new hosting account by Linux Hosts Inc. or to your computer by yourself on the condition that you have given yourself some time to try them out first. You have 30 days time to do this so there's no need to be in a hurry.
How do I cancel BH?
You should be able to cancel BH online in your account. Keep in mind that some web hosting companies make it difficult by hiding the cancellation button so, maybe you'll have to click around a bit. Contact technical support if you're unable to cancel BH. Also send a cancellation request to customer service that includes all your account details.
How to get a refund from BH?
If eligible you can send BH a refund request. Explain why you think to be eligible and how you want to be refunded. Common methods are PayPal, credit card or bankwire refunds.
How to cancel PayPal recurring payments to BH?
In your PayPal account go to Profile/Settings/Financial Information/Pre-Approved Payments and cancel.
How to stop payments from my credit card?
If you are paying by credit card and you suspect that BH will not stop getting money from it, despite your cancellation request, you can call the bank and tell them that your credit card is lost. The bank will block the card immediately and usually issue a new one within a week.
Bluehost Sucks. A couple of days after I started hosting with this provider I noticed performance issues, combined with messages that displayed every 15 minutes, informing me that I was exceeding their CPU limits. So I made some modifications to resolve this issue. Since my websites are dynamic, I built in a cache to ensure that unchanged parts of the site were saved into cache files. Although this was a good move, the problem persisted.
Bluehost Issue #2: Bad Support
After many unsuccessful attempts to decrease the CPU usage I contacted the Bluehost support team. After 2 hours on International hold I spoke to a lady who told me that the issue was due to a software problem. I believed her. However, my hosting account continued to be plagued with unreliability issues. At times the site would simply time out for unknown reasons. Bluehost sucks, for me it's a scam.
Bluehost Problem #3: Outdated.
Later I discovered that the provider is using an outdated server setup. I found an article in the company's knowledgebase that describes that they implemented a 20 processes limit. This weird limitation was the cause. The fact that they don't display this limitation on their homepage is commercial fraud. Bluehost is a sucking service.
Blue Host Issue #4: Not Unlimited At All.
Finally the Bluehost Team decided to pull out the plug and they even didn't tell me. This is the most unprofessional behavior I have seen from a web hosting provider and it is nothing more than a scam. After talking about the issue of unlimited space with a support representative, I finally got the answer I needed: "It's not really unlimited, because not many customers need as much space as you". So what she actually said is that they claim unlimited space with the intention to lure people like me into giving them a credit card. Need I say more? Anyway, since I'm hosting with someone else the issue never came back. I am very happy with my new host and I'll never leave them.
This is an actual customer story submitted by Harold Trunkers - Australia.
As we can see in this evaluation, the shit host decided to cancel the customer's hosting account and they did not even inform their customer about this. They screwed their client who, of course, felt pissed off. This is horrible behavior the account holder had never seen before. After talking about unlimited space with a representative, he finally got the answer he expected that the account was not without limits, because not many clients need the webspace as was required by him. So what the cheater actually said is that they offer unlimited web space with the intention to convince people into opening an account. My personal experience with them is also crappy, although it has nothing to do with exceeding space or bandwidth limits. At that time I was still a beginning webmaster. I didn't know much about website development. Due to my own lack of knowledge and skills, I ran into trouble several times. My frustration and hate however, was the fact that the technical support crap was never able to help me out. This is only one out of the many terrible stories related to this miserable provider. When you go online and you enter the relevant keywords, you will be shocked by the experiences of so many other dissatisfied clients and ex-customers. The thing with this kind of businesses is that they have a huge advertising budget. This means that, one way or another, you will always be confronted with this company. The art of the game is to simply ignore this, to run away from all the convincing ads, and to go your own way because you deserve the best one for your business. The only advantage I can think of is the fact that this company will not go bankrupt because it's a big company. However, I assume that the disadvantage is sufficiently described in this article. I realize that this document is not waterproof because, no matter how bad a company is, they can always improve their services at a later time. Let's hope that this will happen in the near future. In the meantime this firm is not recommended. Finally, may I invite you to read the banner at the top of this page? It points to a real professional provider. Thanks for reading this Bluehost scam review and good luck!
