Cancel within 30 days of purchase

I read couple of places that in case one cancel in first 3 days, the refund will be 100%. But as per bluehost website details, there is clearly mentioned that within first 30 days of initial purchase, one can cancel the hosting account and get 100% money back.

  • Great post, Thank you for sharing. I will learn from it

  • Seems like this is wonderful option available at bluehost and I guess I just came to know about it.


  • Well, great explanation. I tried Bluehost for 1 year and results was awesome. Bluehost is one of the best-shared webhosting company. That is why I recommend it for everyone. The bad thing that I observe is they never offer biggest discount on webhosting services like hostgator. I have never seen upto 50% discount on their hosting plans.

  • Hi Santanu,

    Bluehost and hostgator both are very popular into share hosting service provider industry, these day I am also using bluehost and hostgator, I faced many time problem into hostgator related to new a/c hosting, I bought last month before hostgator new share hosting.. I bought hosting by mu friends affiliate link.. after bought hosting hostgator didn’t a/c my account and ask for verification process I send all document like credit card information.. and send ticket to support center.. and after this I didn’t get any response from support side..

  • Thanks for sharing..! Actually, I have no experience with hosting and its refund policies. Thus, I’m really glad to those from you…

    You know..? I found that many bloggers recommended Bluehost as best hosting service, but I never tried Bluehost.

    Thanks for sharing..

  • Hi Santanu,

    Good to be over at your blog too πŸ™‚

    I’ve not tried Bluehost, though heard a lot of good things about them. But with the good there is also the bad that shows up and it would, for most hosting companies. I’ve tried many earlier and finally settled with SiteGround now, and they are good as well.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead πŸ™‚
