This is a Bluehost review for WordPress. In this Review, I talked about Bluehost in terms of performance, support, pricing, and features. Let’s get started with the Review.
Bluehost Review Summary
Bluehost is not an excellent but decent choice of web hosting to get started. Based on our test, the Bluehost site showed good performance for the price, and a free domain name is an excellent cost-saver for beginners.
Bluehost WordPress Review
Server Response Time
The Bluehost TTFB server response time is 455ms, as recorded through our Pingdom tool. This is a decent server response time and better than HostGator, which is also part of the same EIG hosting.
The Bluehost uptime is recorded at 99.66%, the poorest uptime among 20 other hosting providers we’ve tested.
I performed Load Testing on my Bluehost site by sending 500 concurrent traffic, and the site recorded an average response time of 309ms.
Again, this is a poor score compared to other similar-priced hosting services.
Bluehost test site recorded an average TTFB of 438.82 ms with a decent TTFB in all ten places. The site had the lowest TTFB of 126.39 ms in Dallas and the highest TTFB of 781.11 ms in Bangalore. Hence, Bluehost can largely help sites that depend on multiple locations for traffic.
Core Web Vitals
I have been consistently testing the Core Web Vitals of my Bluehost site. According to the last test results, my site recorded a ‘Largest Contentful Paint’ of 435ms, a ‘Total Blocking Time’ of 0ms, and a ‘Cumulative Layout Shift:’ of 0.
Going by the results, Bluehost may not have the best Core Web Vitals, but again it’s not even that bad, and with a bit of effort, sites can deliver a brilliant user experience to their visitors.
