We have tried pinging Bluehost website using our server and the website returned the above results. If bluehost.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Bluehost - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

My Bluehost site has been down for more than 13 hours now. This is not the first time in in the few scant months I have been with BH, having moved there only because my new site designer liked working them. In the several years I was with HostGator, for my most complicated site, and with GoDaddy for a couple of simple static sites, I never had one single problem. I imagine I will be switching back soon.

This is the error code/message that I'm getting today when logging into WordPress. Hmmmmm.

Error establishing a database connection

This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.
•Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
•Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
•Are you sure that the database server is running?

If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.

Whelp, as usual, the service is down. This seems to happen every single night lately. All of my clients and my business partner prefer Bluehost. I've personally been with Hostgator since 06 and never had a single issue. I don't even get mad anymore. I just look at the time, notice it's about 9-10PM and expect the service to crash.

Looks like the database server on my shared server just went offline. All clients who have a Wordpress or other database driven site are SOL. Yay.

I can't access my website... when I put my URL into the Google tool bar I get an error message. When I called Bluehost I waited for twenty minutes and finally hung up. Then I went online to the Bluehost site to get online help and waited for about another fifteen minutes. So I hung up. If Bluehost can't answer my question about why my URL isn't being accepted then I will hang up on BlueHost.

I had stuck with Bluehost through all previous outages but this latest 28hr outage was the last straw for me. I'm so happy that I didn't pay for my VPN a year in advance like their CS wanted me to. I've moved my VPS to KnownHost who do offer a 99.9% uptime SLA, for every 0.1% below 99.9% uptime, they refund you 10% of your monthly costs; so if it drops to 99% uptime you'll get a free month. Nice to see a host put their money where their mouth is!

Blue host owes it to their customers to keep communication open. You can't call and reach a single person. I called them last night about 9"00pm and I was told 1 -2 hrs . This appears to be the standard answer. Blue host will loose customers due to lack of communication.

Sorry But I will be changing also

Here's something to think about folks. The chances of your site being hacked at Bluehost are about 1 in 200, 000, but the chances of Bluehost technical incompetence taking your site down in the next 12 months: 7 in 10.

One more thought for all of you thinking that "this too shall pass": I've been here three times now with my sites down. Each time Bluehost told me they were upgrading and that the problem would be solved, and it would be smooth sailing into the future. Turned out to be false--three times. I'm not waiting around again for this to happen. Fool me once, shame on Bluehost, fool me three times, shame shame shame on me for staying with Bluehost.

The only information coming from Bluehost is apologies, they offer no real information that we business people can base decisions on. Our partners in business are not helping us decide what is best for our businesses. I think they are scared to give us the real information fearing too many people will leave. That may be the case but the information should be shared so WE can decide. I was able to login to my CP and extract my files. Others that are still down might be able to do the same.

Thousands are waiting to move their sites from Bluehost to more reliable companies, and there are many more reliable companies.

Lets all sue. Even if we signed a contract saying that their downtime is not there fault, it does not mean we all don't have a case. This could be a class action lawsuit. I have a stock market site and we lost paying members today. Some of our paid members are multimillionaires. There are very unhappy. So if we all get together we can settle this in court easy. Again, yes their is a contract but that does not make it legal. You can sign a contract that gives you the right to kill your friend but it would still be illegal.

This would never happen years ago but the last 12 months BH has been down a lot more frequently, perhaps it is being targetted more? perhaps this is because of Heartbleed? I for one have had much better service over at a Wordpress specialist host like WP Engine see under Wordpress Specific Hosting - Their uptime is much better than BH, I have many sites on BOTH platforms http://pixelloop.org/recommended/hosting/

No doubt I need to move my sites to a reliable service, but what a hassle that will be. Who in the world has a reliable service better than BH? I honestly don't know, and any of those services who call me will tell me anything. How do I know who is reliable?

I can't believe there aren't any straight answers from the staff. 5 Hours ago I was told (by BH phone support) that it would be taken care of "in an hour or 2". As most of you, I'm losing income and this is just frustrating. Any good alternatives to BH? I'm just now starting to look.

If I could access my server I would have already switched to a new provider. Bluehost's best chance at keeping me now is to continue ensuring my server is unavailable as I may continue paying just in case it ever does become available. The moment it's up -> I'm gone.

Edit: Let's say BlueHost had a 99.9% up time guarantee. At this point, my site would have to be accessible every single second for 500 straight days.

Apparently when EIG (Endurance International Group) acquired Bluehost, they tried to make some data center changes. One of their techs let that slip during one of the previous outages in 2013 (it wasn't the really big one in August, it was another outage only an hour long or so). Obviously they didn't get it right and still haven't gotten it right:

I hope the shareholders of EIG are taking note of this and will hold management accountable for the mass exodus of formerly loyal customers.

I am so disappointed with the Bluehost services today. I haven't updated my website for while, but just exactly today, when I was trying to change and add a lot of content, it is not responding... Looks like all the work I've been doing for so long today is worthless. The worst thing is that there have been no explanations, apologies or promises to fix it by certain time. How long should we wait? Is all the new info going to be lost?

@Bluehost doesn't guarantee 100% server up-time and they're usually pretty good about crediting your account to compensate. Good luck finding any better for anywhere near that same price. :)

Another multiple-hour outage so soon after the New Year's Eve outage. It gets worse and worse. I've started moving to LiquidWeb which seems to be better VPS for about the same money, and they actually seem to care about their uptime. I know there are lots of things that can cause outages but BlueHost doesn't offer any explanation, particularly to VPS customers who are paying big $$$ and getting this kind of crappy uptime performance. I think BlueHost got acquired by some big holding group and they have turned to complete crap under the new management, probably all their good techs are moving away too (if they haven't already).

I have finally had enough. I have migrated my sites off of BlueHost and will be cancelling all of my BlueHost accounts.

The control panel has been down or working intermittently most of the afternoon but I can get to the website and use FTP.

My dedicated VPS server on BlueHost has been down for 3 hours, taking our website and company email down with it. I tried calling Tech Support but they were having phone problems and couldn't hear me. Then I tried CHAT but couldn't connect, so I finally was able to submit a support ticket on my 6th try. So far I've heard nothing back. Why don't they inform their customers when there is a problem? My personal email is still working so I would know if I got a notification. It's impossible to run our business this way. Does anyone have a suggestion for a better web host?

I have VPS with bluehost and all of my websites are down. I switched to bluehost from westhost because of downtime issues. I teach WordPress and I always recommend bluehost to my clients. We'll see how this pans out. ClassesForWebDesign.com
I wonder if this is a malicious server attack or something else?

aAARGH! Its up. Its down. Its up. Its down. For the last 2 hours its been spotty (email). I sneak in a couple emails, then its down for 20 minutes, then I sneak in another email. Just hoping that they are being delivered and I am receiving all responses. Not the most efficient way to conduct business, Bluehost!

My site is down too, and I'm not sure how many of my bluehost sites are down. This is the third time in so many months. Is bluehost getting to be unreliable? This is no way for me to run a business that is Internet dependant. Not happy about how bluehost is not using mirror systems or automatic backups systems that transfer without a glitch. Apparently bluehost doesn't know how to do that.

I've had some sites with them for about 6 months now and in general when they are up and running they are great. I'm a bit disappointed at the number of outages I had in the past 6 months. Pingdom says that since Oct 1st I've had 9h 37m of downtime on 154 separate occasions. At least 3 of them that I recall were during the business day and none of them were planed maintenance, at least as far as I was told.

While Bluehost is "UP" right now, I am getting this error: "Your domain cannot be assigned at this time. To avoid potential problems, all domain operations have been paused on this server while a reported issue is investigated and resolved. Please wait a few minutes and try again. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If this problem persists, please contact Customer Support." Annoying.

Blue Host has always been great with customer service they do have downtime on shared. Hostmonster is part of the same hosting they are down also.

I have been with BH for years and have many client sites hosted here. I also have many client sites hosted on GoDaddy and I have NEVER had issues with GD like here. I am in the process of moving all to GoDaddy. This is assenine as I cannot conduct MY business without email, and reflects poorly on me. I have given BH benefit of doubt over and over, now I am over.

Public sites are working but can't log in to CP. Takes forever. Just bought a site and can't load wordpress on it either. noon, 4-16-2014 los angeles

It doesn't seem to matter where you go - they all seem to suck these days. I have been through 10 hosts in the past year - all had major problems that caused me downtime, lost clients and major stress. The only solution is to have a second instance of your site hosted on a completely separate server, and use a failover dns solution like dnsmadeeasy.com

Bluehost is *barely* up at the moment. As in the site loads, but logging into the control panel brings up a "Service Unavailable" message after a several minute cursor spin. Our hosted site is down as well.

intovps.com is actually pretty good. You have to know how to configure things yourself, but affordable and good uptime.
