Bluehost is an American hosting company known all over the world. It offers 99.9% quality of work at any time of the day, as well as a modern and functional admin panel.
The company has been operating on the market since 1998 and has more than 2 million customers worldwide. The hosting capacity is amazing: the company’s data centers occupy an area of more than 50 thousand square meters, have uninterrupted power supplies, several fiber optic connections, as well as autonomous diesel generators. All this, as well as a wide range of services allowed Bluehost to get in the list of five world leaders.
They have a few of really good things that speak for them.
