Which Bluehost Plan is Right For You?

This is one of the frequently asked questions by Bluehost customers. People who are new to web hosting always ask this question and sometimes search for an answer on the internet. To make your task easy here is our advice to you.

Basic Plan: If you’re just launching your website for the first time and don’t expect much traffic in near future, you can opt for this plan. We usually don’t recommend this plan as it allows you to host only single website and comes with only 5 free email accounts and 20 databases. You should only opt for this plan if you don’t have any plan to host more than one website in near future or you have very small web hosting requirement.

Plus Plan: This is the most popular Bluehost plan. Most people opt for this plan because it allows you to host up to 10 websites in a single hosting account. Most bloggers and small business owners who want to host more than one websites with moderate traffic buy this plan. We strongly recommend you to choose this plan if you don’t need an SSL or automatic daily backups for your website.

Business Pro Plan: As the name suggest it is the most advanced plan of Bluehost. It comes with everything unlimited. You can host unlimited domains, can create unlimited email accounts and can create unlimited MySQL databases. It also comes with some advanced features like Free SSL, Free Dedicated IP, Site BackUp Pro, Spam Experts & Domain Privacy. If you have 10+ websites and want to host all of them in one hosting plan, this is the plan you should buy.
