I use Bluehost for a blog I have about my comic collection. It is a Wordpress blog using their cloud service. Bluehost is in a nutshell a good web hosting service. My website is always fast and I have never noticed it being down in the past year or so I have been with Bluehost.

I have had a few issues one being with Apache mod_security which was being a little aggressive and disabling one of my Wordpress plugins from working. It took a while to get Bluehost to respond to my request to why my plugin wasn't working and even longer for them to fix the problem. The other time I dealt with customer service was also slow as well and took a few days to fix the issue. 
Pros
Easy setup. Excellent speed and uptime
Cons
Support is slow.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I have been using BlueHost for my Wordpress site now for about 6 months. I switched from Hostpapa after having horrible issues with their server being extremely slow most of the time. I haven't had this issue at all with Bluehost. Right now I am using the Basic Sharded hosting plan. I had excellent customer support switching from HostPapa to Bluehost and  the server I am on now supports HTTP2 which makes it even quicker. I am now looking into integrating Cloudfare which should really boost the speed of my site. It looks like Bluehosts control panel allows you add this easily to your website.

So far I have been extremely happy with the service from Bluehost and would recommend them to any small business or bloggers.
Pros
Great for Wordpress. Fast. Server is always up.
Cons
None yet.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

This is my first hosting provider I have ever used and I was pretty nervous being a newbie to the whole thing of hosting a Wordpress website.

I have Apache setup on my Windows 10 machine as a test and was able to get everything working, I was hoping it would be as easy on Blue Host using their Control Panel and it was. I already had my .com domain name so I signed up for a shared hosting account and within literally a few minutes I had my account created and I was looking around control panel. Things seem easy enough. I uploaded via FTP my WordPress website I was working on and didn't quite get things working right. I chatted with Blue Host customer service and was told I needed to point my domain to my server. Of course I had forgotten this. After a quick chat they told me what I needed to do (my domain was with Namecheap) and voila everything was working.

It was much easier than I thought at the time and in the 4 months my site has been online I have had zero problems with Blue Host itself. I 've had lots of issues with Wordpress but that is a CMS issue and not a hosting one.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Blue Host is pretty good.  I really haven't had any issues with them.  I haven't been hacked or had any real spam threats so their security must be pretty good. 

Prices are fair for what they offer in their packages.

Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I switched hosts over 2 years ago and I have not looked back. Blue Host is very fast and offers free SSL and the shared servers now support HTTP/2 which makes my Wordpress site even faster with its concurrent downloading of files. Pingdom Website Speed Test tool gives my site a Grade of "A" in performance and they say it is 91% faster than other sites.

Reliability is really up there to. I use Alertra website monitoring service which checks my website homepage every 10 minutes to see if it is up and if a certain text is present. Well in the past year it shows my site has been up and accessible 99.996% of the time which is really good.

My site gets over 2000 unique visitors a day now so speed and reliability is very important to me in a web host. Price is decent as well so I give it 5 stars. 
Pros
Good speed and almost zero downtime in 2 years
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
