    Hey guys,
    SEMrush
    Currently using Hostgator, and considering the switch to Bluehost as I've heard so many great things about it.

    Just wondering what your guys thoughts are.... I've had no issues with Hostgator, and the pricing is pretty much the same. But is Bluehost good enough to warrant a switch?

    Any input from those who have used either would be great!

    If you ask for my opinion, i will suggest you stay with HostGator, even though they are more or less the same thing.

    I do vote with Hostgator, due to the reason is that,

    What are the specific good feature or advantages of moving to bluehost?
    Else, i don't think it's worth the trouble especially you have had various site add-on features installed, else, you might think of changing to blueHost if your site is still new.

    If you are having no problems with HostGator, why put yourself through the hassle of switching?

    I personally would not go with any hosting company that offers "unlimited plans"

    Bluehost has been having some issues with their mail servers getting black listed lately. I have had 2 clients that I migrated to other hosting providers because of this. While this is not really a negative about Bluehost it is still a issue that one should be aware of. Having your own dedicated IP for your mail server is key to any professional implementation.
