Bluehost is a hosting company that we recommend to many charities and non-profit organisations.
They provide a feature rich hosting account at a fantastic price, giving you everything you need to start your own charity website including ‘one-click’ installs of top quality software like WordPress, and plenty of space and resources to host your organisations website, emails, images etc. You also get a free .com domain included in the deal!
At time of writing (October 2011) they’re having a special offer of just $3.95 per month (around £2.50 per month) – if you’re looking for a quality low cost host for your charity or non-profit this is a deal you should not miss.
We use Bluehost hosting here at WebsitesForCharity.co.uk along with some other sites we own, and our experience of Bluehost has been good – we have received helpful advice whenever needed from their technical support team, and find their ‘Knowledgebase’ and videos very helpful whenever we have a query.
(Note – As Bluehost hosting is on ‘shared servers’, we wouldn’t recommend hosting a very large or busy forum or chat room on the account, as with most shared hosting accounts you need a little more of a boost for this, but you can always set up your website on Bluehost and host your charity/non-profit forum on a free forum hosting service.)
