Bluehost

Price: On a Budget

Bluehost is a great platform to hold your websites. Their sharing plan allows you to host as many as one hundred websites on a single account. Navigating through the UI is convoluted as you’ll be presented with too many options. BH uses Cpanel which will give you access to all the usual stuff–  hosting, domains, etc, and even 3rd part services such as Gsuite, SEO and security rd party services. It’s not the most user-friendly host and requires some technical knowledge. Bluehost is a very reliable platform which you should consider if you’re on a budget and tech-savvy.
