Blue Host doesn’t seem to offer any uptime guarantee like 99.9% up time guarantee but since most of their services are covered by money back guarantee (30 day full and the remaining prorated) you can try their web hosting services with peace.

All the dedicated server web hosting plans come with money back guarantee but with NO mentioned uptime guarantee like 99.9% up time guarantee. But since Blue Host has a good reputation in the web hosting industry you can try their dedicated servers for a full 30 days and beyond (prorated money back guarantee after the 30 day period). Blue Host has a good reputation in the shared web hosting field we don’t know how good their dedicated server web hosting service are. But you can give them a try for dedicated servers since their is a money back guarantee.

So far You have seen the plans, features and prices of the web hosting services offered by BlueHost web hosting company. From what we see the company doesn’t offer any uptime guarantee like 99.9% uptime guarantee but since they offer money-back guarantee for most of their web hosting services you can try their products without any risk. Should you feel their services are not that great, you can always cancel the account with them and get all your money back (except for some products like domain names) within the 30 day money back period. You would get prorated money back beyond the 30 day period. A few other things you will have to check are the uptime records of the Websites hosted by Blue Host company web servers, the page loading speeds of the websites hosted by their servers and finally the reviews of the each of their products individually. BlueHost is a good shared web hosting provider but that doesn’t automatically make their WordPress Web hosting, Reseller web hosting, VPS server web hosting and Dedicated server web hosting also great.

That’s why you will have to check the web reviews of their products you want to sign up for on search engines like “Google”, “Yahoo” and “Bing”. You could use keywords like “BlueHost WordPress Hosting reviews” for WordPress web hosting, “BlueHost VPS server reviews” for Virtual Private Server hosting, “BlueHost Dedicated server reviews” for Dedicated server hosting and “BlueHost Reseller hosting reviews” for Reseller web hosting services and check their reviews in search engines. If you find most of the reviews positive with only a few negative reviews then you can go ahead and sign up with Blue Host. On the other hand if you find most of the reviews negative with only a few positive reviews then it is a sign for you to stay away from the web host. If you find about half positive reviews and about half negative reviews, then you will have to take your chances and sign up with them to test their services. Since with most products BlueHost offers a money-back guarantee so you won’t lose much. As for our experience with them, we used their shared web hosting service in the past and were happy with their service. But we cannot say anything about their other services like Reseller hosting, WordPress hosting, Virtual Private Server hosting and Dedicated server hosting.
