Media Temple has been my home ever since I left Bluehost.

I have known Media Temple or (mt) long time ago. Those days were the start of my blogging days. For a price of $20 a month, I said to myself I can’t afford it. $20 is just too much for me specially I’m just starting to blog and I don’t know where will this blogging thing will lead me. But 1 and half years later, I’m now hosted here in mt and paying $100 a month. Crazy isn’t?

So why did I chose to pay $100 a month as compared to those who are paying $20 a month? Let’s first compare what package do they have.

The Pros and Cons of Webhosting: Bluehost

This will be a series of set articles intended for those who are looking for a web hosting company. As the name implies, this post will have info on what’s good and bad about this webhost company and what other things you should consider when picking your webhost.

We will  start of with Bluehost.

bh 100x100 03 The Pros and Cons of Webhosting: Bluehost Bluehost – Afforable. Reliable. Web Hosting Solutions.

This is actually my second web hosting company. Bluehost is in a shared hosting, meaning in one server, there could be hundreds of website sharing the same resources.

I have had some good experience with Bluehost when I first started out but it didn’t last long. Bluehost suspended my account before and later on they terminated my contract because of overloading the mysql databases on a consistent basis. At first, I am in denial. I couldn’t believe that my blog is eating up too much resources. But after looking on how things panned out in the past, I realized that my websites are growing and Bluehost cannot anymore serve my demand in a shared hosting. They have returned some credits in my account since I wasn’t able to complete my one year contract and gave me some time to move all of my files to a new web host. So what’s good about Bluehost and why you should or should not pick Bluehost as your first webhost?
