Sponsor highlight: Bluehost

Bluehost Logo

Bluehost is one of the most popular hosting companies for WordPress users and has been a WordPress partner since 2005. They are an Admin level WordCamp Fayetteville sponsor.

Founded in 2003, Bluehost founders had one goal in the beginning-to make a better hosting company than what was already. Bluehost is based on open source technology, which makes them a perfect fit for the WordPress community, which is also based on open source. Located in Utah, this company now has more than 700 employees.

Bluehost’s WordPress hosting offers several key integrated features and tools such as MOJO Marketplace, ManageWP, and other WordPress-centric controls.

Bluehost offers a growing number of technological solutions for its customers and is known for making upgrades to services without making “upgrades” to customer rates. They offer products such as shared hosting, WordPress hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated hosting (and they have helpful staff to help you figure out which one you need).

Bluehost also offers an affiliate program (more than $5 million paid out last year); Bluehost for education, which offers simple, user-friendly web hosting for students and faculty; and free hosting through grassroots.org for qualifying non-profit organizations.
