Where Did My Sites Go?!
By ,

I've struggled since the very beginning with BlueHat CDN. I was an early adopter and a paying player when I suddenly could not add any new sites to the CDN, then months later sites using the CDN couldn't retrieve content. I finally have up and went back to CloudFlare and or Amazon S3.

Only partly free, pro version needed, being dishonest in description about this
By , for WP 4.0

"Super-Charge your website using Blue Hat Turbo plugin for FREE!" is only part of the story.

You either have to display a link "Optimized By BHN" on your website which this plugin does automatically for you. Or you have to purchase a "pro" version.

If you don't purchase the pro version, you only get part of the advertised features from the plugin description page.

While I think it's reasonable to display this link for getting a free plugin, which keeps your blog fast when getting heavy usage, it's totally unreasonable to not state this fact in the description.

On the definition on "free"
By , for WP 4.0

The marketing of this plugin begins "Instantly speed up your WordPress website using Blue Hat Turbo plugin for FREE!" However, to get this plugin to do anything, as far as I can tell, one needs to add a link to the plugin developer's site or pay to upgrade. I think the marketing of the plugin should make this clear. To me, neither of these options qualifies as free.

No Support for Paid Product
By , for WP 3.9.2

Purchased this some time ago and have yet to get it to do what I paid for it to do. Entered support tickets without getting a response.

Not user proven, too much hype
By , for WP 3.8.1

I admit it … I fell for all of the hype from Blue Hat CDN. After extensive testing, I found that Blue Hat actually slowed my site by 1.4 seconds. None of Blue Hat's lofty claims seem to be a reality, in my opinion, possibly because the company is very small, its CDN network is tiny, and the service does not measure up to other CDNs.

By the way, if you look at all the 5-star rave reviews, they were all written on the same day, possibly by Blue Hat.
