I recently got fed up with shared hosting at Hostgator (really, I should not have to explain to their tech support how a DNS works and force them to notice they have a problem!) and decided to look into VPS. I’d heard good things about Bluehost (had no idea VPS was such a new thing for them, though), and I found they had good pricing on VPS, so I signed up for the smallest VPS plan with a $30 monthly fee. At the time of sale, they offered me the $99 migration, but I turned it down. I’m fairly good… Read more »
Wow didn’t know that they didn’t offer migrations for VPS! As I said they really are very new to all of this and they really need to allocate some more resources to VPS if they stand even a remote chance of competing with other VPS options.

55 hours taken not because of bluehost problem.. thats your problem,, if your site down, then why you waited for 55 hours…. this post is useless and redirecting bluehost customer to other.. Blue host is very good … my two friend taken the vps from bluehost and server not restarted and uptime for 23 days since starting account… fools are always fools… they cant escape
I truly hope Bluehost VPS is getting better because my experience with them was terrible.
And for your information I did not wait 55 hours to get the website fixed – I was on the phone to them every hour. However their support for VPS at the time was very lacking!
Thanks for this review! We are deciding which hosting company to choose from, as we are planning to move our VPS from Godadddy. We have been experiencing server issues as well, where the support guys say there is nothing wrong and the problem is on our side. Not possible though, cause it is a recurring problem from various kinds of connections. We were considering bluehost as it is recommended by wordpress, but it seems we may be better of with another option than a VPS?
VPS servers are great but I wouldn’t recommend Bluehost for a VPS. As I say I now recommend WiredTree – it has been 4 months and not one issue at all.
