Bluehost Problems Analysis.
Blue Host Problem #1: CPU LimitsIn a hurry? You can click here to jump to the conclusion or solution.
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 SupportAfter 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Bluehost Problem #3: Outdated.Later I discovered that the provider is using an outdated server setup.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.
