At a first glance, BlueHost attracts the customerís attention with its user-friendly and easily-accessible website. Their contact details are not hidden behind a myriad of dry mouse-clicks but placed right before the visitorís eyes. What gives BlueHost a certain edge over their market rivals is the fact that they launched a demo version of the X-skin-based control panel.
The password of BlueHostís success
In a nutshell, the key to BlueHostís market success boils down to one simple word - unlimited. According to their latest offer, clients can get an unlimited domain hosting and hosting space, unlimited GB file transfer and as many email accounts as they need, whatever their use might be. However, the company offers just 100 databases for MySQL. This issue might be considered a drawback by some, but BlueHost has tried to compensate it with, again, unlimited numbers of add-on domains and sub-domains.
Some features that are worth mentioning include BlueHostís unique terms of service, which do not bombard the customer with heavy legal argot, but rather highlight the most important aspects of the contract, along with their extremely helpful 24/7 customer care centre, and an easy to use control panel. Among the important and, undeniably, very helpful add-ons are a reliable domain manager, a flawless site-builder and a set of convenient account management options. The script installation is unproblematic and generally requires little experience, while the real version of the control panel (or just the c-panel for short) is really hard working.
Another advantage of BlueHost over the competition is their unique remote MySQL database access. It is especially helpful if you plan to set up a rather complex website network that requires secure interchangeable access. However, the remote MySQL access does not run on every control panel; so, if you insist on having this feature, you should opt for a c-panel or vdeck hosting services, as they both support it. As BlueHost mostly offers control panels of the former type, you can easily set up a remote MySQL database access once you log into your hosting account. Note that it is your own responsibility to safeguard your MySQL database from unauthorized access or hacking attempts. Make sure you grant access to specific IP addresses only and remove them when you are not using the service anymore.
