@SteveNetRivet, people here are discussing Bluehost performance here. I had a really bad (actually worst) experience with Bluehost I ever had in my 10 years web development career. I want Web to become better place and people to have fast reliable sites (btw, honestly, I should admit Bluehost is reliable - there were no downtime at all), that is why I am putting my story here.
I agree we should support each other - that is why my story is here. Sometimes you see you can't manage to be heard by some people (should I spend hours trying to convince the tech support to help me?). In this case, you just have to spread this knowledge - that is what I am doing. Most of people who buy a shared hosting do not want to spend time chatting with support, etc, I think. All they want is to pay a reasonable price for a hosting that will perform reasonably well under a small load (under 1000 pageviews per day).
Instead, I really recommend Asmallorange (which was not good for me for some tech restrictions, but they are reasonable people), WPEngine or (for those who do care about rocket fast performance and can spend some time configuring the server) - Amazon EC2. On Amazon EC2, I have about 10x faster performance (0.3 seconds per page instead of 4-10 on Bluehost) without any modifications done to the settings or code.
