Bluehost advantages and disadvantages

One of the biggest advantages of choosing Bluehost is it’s one of only three hosting providers that’s endorsed by WordPress. WordPress requires a significant amount of expertise to use effectively, so this endorsement is a major differentiating factor for businesses that want to use WordPress as their content management system (CMS). Additionally, many users regard Bluehost as one of the most reliable and relatively inexpensive options on the web hosting market today.

On the other hand, Bluehost does not guarantee any backups, so that is one disadvantage prospective customers should keep in mind. A third-party platform is required to ensure the integrity of all backups and prevent costly downtimes in a worst-case disaster recovery scenario. Other hosting providers may charge more per month but offer this service at no additional cost.
