I'm using bluehost with one site. I've have a couple problems with them with I first started, but they fixed things quickly and I've had no problems since then.

Wow, they are overselling by 500% aproximately :)

Such a package should cost at least $30 and even if the price would be about $30, they would make NO profit. Not hard to calculate,m that even if you have a dedicated server and don't plan to make any profit, it's still impossible to have such a package at this price...

ManXP,

I doubt most customers use a quarter of the package they pay for. So it all balances out I think? I've had my concerns on load balancing on a shared server and the backbone connection to the the world. Bluehost provide OC48s. So far I've had no problems. My other concern is would also be the domain name you get. Does it belong to you or them?
