You SHOULDN'T recommend BlueHost - they are rubbish (8 posts)

    I notice that on the Web hosting page, you recommend Blue Host
    http://wordpress.org/hosting/

    I started using them on the strength of your recommendation, and they are absolutely rubbish - always down and insecure. It is obvious they are only there because they are paying you - if I was based in the US I'd seriously consider suing you for recommending such a crap provider.

    From the page you linked above:

    If you feel there are issues with one of the hosts listed here, please send a note to hosting-2010@wordpress.org. If the situation warrants we'll work with you and your host on a solution. We also realize that we can’t highlight every good host, but if you have a favorite host you think we should feature here, let us know.

    Yes I saw that, but emails are not googlable.

    Yes, but it still might be worth following that as one more approach to getting your grievances resolved.

    @fritz - I agree in publicly discussing this in forums.

    My personal gripe is with GoDaddy - a truly horrible interface makes it next to impossible to work with their hosting control panel. It is awful enough that I refuse to work with anyone hosted there.

    I was shocked to see WordPress recommending them.

    GoDaddy for WordPress is horrrible.

    I haven't used bluehost but I have used GoDaddy and it does suck for hosting WordPress.. I wouldn't blame WP for their recommendations, some people will have great experiences with host while others won't.

    On that note, I'm using Downtownhost.com and they are great.

    I have been using BlueHost on several of my website builds and also use WP and have had none of the issues you've discussed above. None of the sites have gone down at all, etc...

    Bottom line is no one is going to be happy with any/all of the suggestions that are made. If you don't like the host companies find one you do like and use them.

    If you took a poll, you'll have people arguing both sides for every hosting company.

    Just as MartyThronley hates GoDaddy, I love them. I can deal with their imperfect CP since I get excellent reliability and amazing customer service IMO.
