What is Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting is one of the most popular hosting packages because it provides an affordable way to get your website online. Shared Hosting works by allowing multiple users to share space on a single server maintained by the hosting provider (Bluehost). A Shared Hosting package can include multiple offers or combinations of features as offered by their hosting provider. Bluehost Shared Hosting is perfect for blogging, hobbies and small business websites.



What are Shared Hosting Benefits?

When you sign up for a Shared Hosting package, your biggest benefit is purchasing hosting at an affordable price. In addition to various features, our shared hosting platform is managed which means users don’t have to worry about server management and platform patches. When you purchase a Bluehost Shared Hosting package it also includes an SSL certificate, domain name and more!



What is the difference between Shared vs WordPress Hosting?

Anyone who has a website needs hosting to get their website online. Shared Hosting is a low-cost option for new users that is affordable and can be used with WordPress. Any website hosted through Bluehost automatically has WordPress installed and ready to use. Shared WordPress Hosting is fully integrated with all the WordPress features to include automatic WordPress updates and installation.



What is the difference between Shared vs VPS Hosting?

When you have a Shared Hosting package you are one of multiple users hosting their website on a web server. This means a specific allotment of resources (RAM, CPU, etc) are not guaranteed for your website. Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting provides more space and bandwidth to manage a higher influx of traffic to your website. VPS Hosting allows you to expand a website over time so you can easily scale up your website as it grows. Users have a much higher degree of control with VPS Hosting so you can customize your control configuration as you’d like.



How do I get started with Shared Hosting?

Bluehost strives to make it easy for our customers to get their website online with the purchase of our hosting packages. When you visit the Bluehost website you will select your Shared Web Hosting plan. These plans vary in prices and features. Once you select your hosting package we will automatically install the latest version of WordPress for you. Once you’re logged in, it’s time to get your website online!



How do I migrate to Bluehost?

If you already have a website and are considering changing your web host, then you will need some assistance with migration. Bluehost provides a migration service that can assist you in getting all your files transferred securely and correctly. Migrating your website can be time consuming and extremely complex so we want to provide you with the best support possible from our team of experts.



Is WP Pro the right plan for me?


Absolutely. No matter if you are brand new to WordPress or an experienced WordPress aficionado, WP Pro has everything you need to build and grow a professional WordPress website.

 

 

What are the top features of WP Pro?

Marketing Center

Manage your SEO, Social Media, and Email traffic channels all in one dashboard. Monitor the performance of your website and marketing efforts from the same dashboard.

 

Detailed Analytics

Monitor your website traffic performance on a daily, weekly, or yearly basis. Already use Google Analytics? You can easily integrate your existing Google Analytics account into the Marketing Center to view your traffic channels.

 

Improved Site Speed

All WP Pro servers are built with Solid State Drives (SSDs) meaning your website outperforms websites hosted on traditional HDD servers. We do not oversubscribe the number of users on these servers, meaning more of the server's resources are available to you when you need it. With WP Pro, you can enjoy the fastest WordPress hosting available.

 

Fully Managed

Managed WordPress hosting like WordPress Pro means you enjoy automatic updates to your WordPress install as well as automatic updates to the server environment so that your website is always on the fastest and most stable technology stack available.

 

 

Is WP Pro Managed?

Our WP Pro platform is a fully-managed WordPress hosting environment, which means you can stay focused on building your website with content that is unique to you while we handle the daily maintenance of your server and the applications that keeps your website running strong.

 

 

What is included in the 1-Hour Concierge Call?

You will work directly with a trained WordPress expert to help you navigate both the Bluehost and WordPress admin control panel. They will also assist you with selecting the right themes and plugins for your website needs. Lastly, if you are new to WordPress, the WordPress expert will also teach you how to create and edit pages on your website.

 

 

Does Google Analytics work with WP Pro?

Yes. If you already have a Google Analytics account, you can simply enter your account key next to the traffic dashboard to link the accounts and start viewing your traffic data from a single dashboard.

 

 

Can I host multiple websites on WP Pro?

Yes. WP Pro allows you to host multiple WordPress websites on a single account. However, only the primary website on your account will have access to all of the analytics and advanced tooling that comes with a WP Pro subscription. In order to leverage all the power of WP Pro for additional websites, you will need to purchase additional Jetpack licenses from within the Bluehost dashboard. Each license can be applied to a new website and will allow for analytics and advanced tooling to be used across multiple websites on a single account.

 

 

What is Jetpack?

Jetpack is a feature-rich toolkit designed specifically for WordPress websites. Depending on the Jetpack package you choose to leverage alongside your WordPress website, you gain access to tools like website analytics, image CDN, malware protection, website data backups, PayPal integration, video CDN, and more.
