We are fortunate enough to be able to offer an exclusive deal to our readers thanks to the generosity of Bluehost. Using one of these discounts allows you to get a fantastic discount on their standard price, but they only usually apply to the first invoice. For this reason, you may want to sign up for at least a year to get the best deal.
One thing you might like to know is that they are the recommended hosting provider at WordPress.org, making them an ideal choice for WordPress and other content management systems.
New Bluehost Promo Codes for September 2016.
You can find a summary of all the Bluehost offers this month below:
- $3.49 per month hosting offer — They seem to have tweaked their prices a little, and now you can get a "5 domain (parked)" plan for just $3.49, a saving of $2.50 per month. As ever the exact discount by this activation link varies depending on the length of the term, but this is the best value Coupons you will find. Of course, if you want their more popular "Plus" plan, this link activated offer will reduce the price of that plan from $9.99 to just $5.95 per month, with further savings with their "business pro" plan.
- 50 percent Off WordPress Hosting (first month) — It is a shame this offer is just for the first month with this very powerful WordPress hosting. Their WordPress hosting is essentially a finely tuned VPS platform that uses NGINX, and custom PHP-FPM configuration that make it very fast. The discount we think is to allow you to try it out, even though they do offer a no questions asked 30-day money back guarantee!
- 50 percent Off VPS Hosting (first month) — This is not quite as powerful as the WordPress hosting, which is reflected in the slightly lower specification plans and lower pricing. However, it will still give significantly more resources than the shared hosting. Again, you can get 50 percent off with our one of our offers, but it is just the first month.
- 50 percent off Dedicated Hosting (first month) — Again, if you need some intensive resources one of their dedicated plans might be worth trying. Not only can you get 50 percent off the first month, but they are currently doing a free upgrade where you can get 4 x 2.5GHz CPU and 1 TB of storage at no extra charge. We suspect this is not your own physical server, but dedicated resources on a more powerful server. This can be a great way of getting dedicated hosting as the hardware is often much better than a cheaper physical server. The technology behind their dedicated servers is based on OpenStack, which enables flexibility to upgrade as required.

How to use your Bluehost Coupon Code
To use the one of our offers simply click the required discount above and it will take you to their website, and automatically show the reduced price. You won't need to enter a coupon code during the sign-up process. Check the step by step instructions below for a more comprehensive guide:
1. Click one of the required Promo Codes above
As we mentioned above, when you click the link it will take you to their website. You will see the $3.49 per month month offer show automatically, although please remember that this discounted price only applies to your first invoice.
2. Sign up
To start simply click the "Sign up now" button on their homepage. This will then take you to the order form where you can fine tune your shared hosting.
3. Complete your domain information:
The next stage is to enter your domain information. We recommend using Namecheap (see our Namecheap Review) to purchase domains, as they are in our opinion one of the best and cheapest domain registrars around. However, it doesn't hurt to take advantage of a free domain, so we suggest you make the most of this and register a domain here now. You can always transfer it elsewhere after a few months.
4. Complete billing information, and create your account.
Enter your billing information, choose a billing cycle. Select or deselect any add-ons, and then create your account. To get the best deal, you will need to sign up for three years, although with the anytime money back guarantee this is not quite so bad as it would seem. As the web hosting discount is link activated, don't worry if you do not see a place to enter your Bluehost Promo code. The important thing is to check that the discounted price shows when you first visit the website via our activation link.
Things to consider when signing up
The hosting server is located in Provo, Utah, which gives good connectivity throughout the US, but due to Utah being closer to the West side of the US it is not the best for Europe connectivity.
When you get to the package information page, you have some choices for optional extras. They have a few extras that you might find quite useful although we do not have any coupons available for these add-ons. Their website Backup Pro, for instance, can be invaluable with taking daily, weekly, and monthly snapshots of your website with an on-click restore function. What's more, you can even restore databases and tables. While we always recommend taking your own off-site backups this service for just $1.67 is a must have.
Do you need SiteLock Domain Security, Domain Privacy Protection or even Search Engine Jumpstart? Possibly, but that's up to you ... they have conveniently put links on the order page so you can find out more about them. Personally, we wouldn't get any other extras apart from the backups. Because their plans are unlimited (subject to their terms and conditions), there isn't much to choose from in terms of plans.
Finally, one thing that annoys us about individual hosts is the fact they offer huge discounts for signing up for extended periods of time. However, you need not worry here with their anytime money-back guarantee. This means you get a full refund within 30 days if you are not happy, and a prorated refund at any time during the term if you cancel after 30 days. This makes signing up for three years an incredible deal that you will be mad to pass up.
Bluehost Coupon & Billing FAQs
All websites are different, so without knowing your particular circumstances it is difficult to give specific advice.
However, if you’re starting a new website that will not be getting much traffic initially, then you should consider their shared hosting plan. This can then be upgraded once your website grows, and is a great starting point.
If you’re looking for something more advanced already and need additional storage and bandwidth for your website, then check out the Pro web hosting, dedicated hosting and VPS hosting plans. If you’re looking for a plan that is more advanced and are a WordPress user, then their Optimized Hosting for WordPress is something you may wish to consider.
Yes, Bluehost offers a monthly payment option. However, you can make considerable savings by signing up for a longer period when using our coupon, as the discount will apply to the first billing term.
You can also pay 12-monthly, 24-monthly or 36-monthly.
Yes, a free domain name is available with all hosting plans.
According to their website, they accept American Express, Discover, Master Card, Visa, and PayPal.
Yes, they do accept PayPal.
They do not accept Bitcoin at this time. If paying by Bitcoin is essential, then we suggest Namecheap.
If you cancel your account with them within three days of opening it, you will receive a full refund. If you received a free domain, then $15.99 is deducted from any sums of money returned to you should you wish to keep it.
If you cancel within the first 30 days, you’ll get a full refund of registration prices, but you’ll have to retain any domain names and be deducted $15.99 per name.
Yes, the cost of hosting will go up once you renew, as the initial discount offered by our Bluehost coupon only applies to the first invoice. During the order process, the discounted rate and the renewal rate are clearly shown.
We recommend signing up for three years to make the most of the initial discount.
In our opinion, it is a good idea to purchase this alongside your web hosting account. The Site Backup and Restore Pro costs just $23.88 per year. It includes automatic website backups that are taken on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
If you only lose a few files from your website, you can restore these specifically selected files, rather than having to replace your entire website. There is also a useful option to restore the entire website to the latest backed up version with a single click.
You can also easily restore MySQL database tables, and can replace your whole database if required.
