Blue Host’s prices seem to be attractive when we talk of pure figures. $3.95 a month is a great price for anyone, including non-commercial bloggers. However, to enjoy this pricing you need to commit for a term of full three years! Even if you are ready to pay higher monthly price for shorter commitments, the least package you can buy is 1-year package! So, the customers would feel tightly restricted while choosing the plan term.
Shared Hosting plans
The starter shared hosting plans comes with sufficient resources to keep your users satisfied with reliable performance. The resource kit is much wider when compared to its competitors that can be called a trade-off negotiation considering the lengthy lock-in period of 1 year.
- 50 GB storage and unlimited data transfers
- Complementary domain name
- Free domain transferring
- 5 email addresses
- Plus package comes with unlimited storage mailboxes and a premium antispam
- Prime Package adds a dedicated IP address, reliable site backup and domain privacy
The standard plan comes with 2 GB of memory and 30 GB storage. You are also entitled to enjoy unrestricted data transfers on a monthly basis. Increasing the length of the contacts would effectively reduce the prices. A major limitation here. The Windows fans will feel restricted as the company doesn’t offer window hosting packages for VPS plans. Looking at the vast number of window users worldwide, it is certainly not a positive thing to say the least.
