BlueHost India (Review)

I finally decided to Register a brand new Domain & get an Unlimited Linux Hosting from a good Hosting Company!

Who doesn’t want a Good Hosting Company!?
Yeah, everyone wants it!

So, I did some ‘basic’ research & found out that “BlueHost” was on Top of the list.
I made up my mind & went straight to BlueHost’s website but I found out that it didn’t accept any Indian Payment methods that were Local e.g. RuPay Debit Cards or Net Banking for Payments!
This was a Problem but then I found out that BlueHost has an ‘Indian’ version too, I went to “https://www.bluehost.in” where they were accepting local payment methods!

I signed Up > Registered a Domain > Bought an Unlimited Linux Hosting!
Made the Worst Mistake!

Why!?
The Dashboard sucked!
like literally, below is the Dashboard of Bluehost.com

I expected the above Dashboard but the Reality was horrible!
See Below –

Not only the Dashboard,
but the cPanel had issues like I couldn’t issue a Let’s Encrypt certificate to any of my Site!
I couldn’t manage any Addon Domain properly etc etc!

In Short –
The Indian Version sucked!

But Why!?
The reason was that BlueHost India was not handled by BlueHost Global (US) but by a local company known as Reseller Club.

What Next?
Submitted a Ticket for the Cancellation of Hosting Package & a Full Refund!
(30 Day Money Back Guarantee!)
I was actually cancelling the Hosting Package on the 2nd Day! 😂

Note: They do not give Refund if you purchased a WordPress Hosting!

Here’s how you can get a Refund if you made the same mistake:
Complete Guide to get Full Refund from BlueHost India!

Got my Refund on the 4th Day & instantly went to GoDaddy, bought the same ‘Unlimited Linux Hosting’ at a price less than what BlueHost India charged!

GoDaddy is a lot better, easy & convenient than BlueHost India!
