After-sale service is an essential component of quality and reliable hosting service and therefore, both companies invest much money to develop their professional supporting team. All the staffs offering customer service need to have at least 5-year experience in this field. Before officially serving customers, those staffs need to go through special training to ensure that they have a genial attitude.

Apart from the excellent supporting team, both companies also offer multiple channels for people to ask for help, including email, phone calls, as well as online chat. Besides, if you encounter some basic and common problems, you can also turn to the help center and communities.

So, if you’re looking for a qualified unlimited shared web hosting with the right balance among the reliability, speed, and price, BlueHost is the better choice than WebHostingHub.
