I have been with Bluehost for over 8 years now. Until recently, I was very happy with them. However, this year, especially in recent months, my websites have been very, very slow to load. I was told tonight that it is a Bluehost issue, but their policy is to fix the server the customer is on, and not move the customer to one that works. The problem is, that for the first time ever, I paid up front for a year. And this is when things got to be the worst ever. I regret having done that. maybe it’s better to keep them guessing and not pay up front. Anyway, I am hoping that I can at least get a refund if things don’t get fixed and move on somewhere else. But where, is the question! This is very bad for my business. I can’t say that I can recommend Bluehost anymore. They have failed me. I would have submitted this review on WordPress.org, but I was not able to. Ironically, that is the only “old” recommendation that still remains on the WordPress Web Hosting page.
