In a few days I will be changing my domain over to Host Monster hosting. While I haven’t been displeased with my experience at bluehost, I will be able to have unlimited domains on host monster. Host Monster offers everything that Bluehost does and gives additional space and bandwidth on top of that.
Host Monster costs half as much as Bluehost. I used to pay around $90/year for hosting through bluehost, and I now pay around $90/2years of hosting. [Note: prices have since changed, but are still low ($5.95/mo)]. You can’t beat that deal anywhere. The only thing that I’m facing now is switching costs. It will take some time to move everything over to the new hosting, but it will be worth it in the long run as I will be able to host more domains on that site.
I hadn’t yet switched my bluehost account over to a php5 server, because the account was originally purchased on my father’s credit card, as we were sharing the account (the last four digits were required to verify the account in order to change it). So now I’ll have php5 with ssh access! I will be able to launch some side-project sites that I hadn’t purchased hosting for, but had owned the domain.
My experience so far with Host Monster has been very positive. I have contacted customer support via phone and live chat to request some changes for the account before I make the migration, and they have been very helpful. Response time has been very fast with very little waiting on hold.
Like Bluehost, HostMonster has an anti-pornography policy, which is a protection to all of the other clients that are using the hosting service. Hosting services that serve pornography are often targets of hackers.
Please excuse my site if it experiences any downtime during the switch. Also, check out Host Monster if you want to save a bunch of money.
Please note: HostMonster and Bluehost are indeed the same company.
