    We are Gorakhpur Times News Network, we would like to share with all customers or probable customers of Blue Host India that if you are thinking of using them as your hosting partner than its a biggest mistake. This is entirely a fake company and all the promises they make on the website that has too many hidden conditions which you come to know after paying them. First they are not a Part of Actual Blue Host .Com they are a separate company bluehost.in so let us make sure that their services are no where near the actual bluehost. Infact they dont have their server ever they are simply a reseller of ``hostgator`` so you are purchasing hostgator server in the name of BlueHost and you are being charged for actual bluehost server. Few months back we had purchased a VPS with them and just after 2 weeks we started facing issues of downtime, when we complained they said you have some issues with your wordpress website go for optimisation and we spent 30k for wordpress optimization and we again faced the same issue. Than they suggested us to change the script and we moved to Joomla and again we faced the same issue, they asked us to optimize joomla as well and we did it but again no luck. Than we though of trying BigRock server `` a shared hosting plan`` and we found website is working absolutely fine. Than we called their support team and asked them to check how smoothly site is running on shared hosting but not on your VPS which is much more costly and have more resources. Just to give it a last check we thought of trying their CloudHosting and we faced issues again than we called and ask them to refund our money we will shift to another server. Their support said first you get all the data transferred to another server and call us back we will delete this account and refund you. After that we purchased a VPS on bigrock and transferred the data their and waited for a week to see wether its working fne or not and we found no issues than we called their support nd ask them to delete the account and refund. They accepted the requested for deletion and asked us to call billing to get the refund back and now see what.... they are saying you cant get refund. ha ha, they asked me to shift another server we spent again on server and shifted tge data and now there wont be any refund. My friends we are starting a campaign on facebook and twitter against this fraud and will be filing case with consumer forum. But before that we want you all to please spread this article t all of your friends so that all those who have ever faced issues with Blue Host india can come together and will raise their voice through Times News Network. We shall be publishing a complete investigative report against BlueHost India tomorrow on our news portal you all may find it useful for your claims against BlueHost India.

    My website hosted with bluehost has been down almost every day, sometimes a few times a day. What`s more frustrating is that my webpage takes 30 to 75 seconds to load. It was much better in my first year with them (about 10 seconds - still bad, but manageable). The online chat requires a waiting time of 30 minutes, and sometimes extended for another 30 minutes. I am here to look for alternative...and am extremely surprised to see that it`s uptime is reported as 100%. OMG.

    Since they offered a prorated refund, I asked them how much I can get back if I terminate on X day (since I have 2 years out of 3 years of unused value). They replied and said they can only reveal the refund amount when I submit my cancellation. Why so secretive? I am prepared for minimal refund, assuming there would be hidden costs added in. Sigh. Next time, I should just sign up for 1 year and test out the host.

    Pricing is great, but that`s where it all ends. Site loading times are HORRIBLE, and often times out. Without a doubt this is the worst loading times I`ve ever seen on any site. Site goes down on a daily basis, and sometimes a dozen or more times. Typically it will be down for 1-3 hours.

    Transferring your site AWAY from them is extremely difficult, they pretty much block you so you have to pay them to do it for you. They suck big time!

    I came to the Sitegeek site because I am looking for an alternative to Bluehost. Over the past week and a half, my sites have been down at least six times, and on a couple of those occasions they have been down for at least a couple of hours. So not only have I been unable to work on my sites during those times, but people attempting to visit them get a ``site not found`` error message - not a good way to build a web presence. I`ve also found the site to be painfully slow. Add to that the gauntlet of ads that one must negotiate in order to find anything on their site (when I first set up my site, it took me so long to find my way past all of the screens for purchases of premium themes and other such upgrades that I ultimately gave up and came back to the task later) and a live chat session that gave me incorrect information and was cut short by site maintenance, and I would NEVER, EVER recommend Bluehost to anybody. Avoid the Bluehost blues - look elsewhere.

    Very slow service -- even with Cloud Pro upgrade. Server goes down several times a week, my web tech says the server delay time is often 3 seconds on my site. Can`t recommend Bluehost for anyone wanting a professional site that delivers consistent speed and reliability.

    I have been with AwardSpace for a year but their servers are way too slow!! Now that Google has changed their algorithms the speed of a website should be fast and not slow.

    Also with AwardSpace, I very often found that I didn`t receive emails sent from my contacts... when I contacted the customer support, all they did is send me an email as a test. Many times I contacted them for the same email problem and not once they did a deeper research to tell me (their client) what exactly was the problem.

    Since I`m with Bluehost everything is working fine, so as a client I am very happy with their services!

    I was totally going to go with Bluehost for all my hosting needs for a small business. But after reading the obvious astroturfing by them in the comments section, I will choose someone else. Integrity is more important than most things when you are trusting your data to a company. Any company that needs to resort to parlor tricks for business is probably a scam.

    Good for small private pages, but not for business.
    When my site started to grow bigger, got more visits, more problems arrived. It was much slower. Lots of issues and on the end it was hacked. As soon as I changed hosting, attacks stopped.
