Is Bluehost Good for Drupal 7
I am looking for a shared hosting for Drupal 7 site. Looks like Bluehost is a good option, and price is very reasonable for me. But according to the post here http://forum.hostucan.com/showthread...ed-web-hosting that version of php offered by Bluehost is 5.2.17, and the recommended version of php from Drupal official site is 5.3.x.
Is there anyone host Drupal 7 with Bluehost, and have you met any problem?
Bluehost should be a good options for Drupal 7 if your site is not with heavy load. We host a Drupal 7 site with them, and some common modules like view, page_title, token, path_auto are enabled. So far so good.
In terms of version of php, someone reported they had met some issue in 5.2.x and those issues disappeared after upgrade php to 5.3.x. Those should be the bug of the 3rd modules they have installed, and not the issue of the hosting as Drupal 7 and the relevant community contributed module should be compatible with PHP 5.2.5. If you do meet the issue related to version of php, besides contacting your web hosting, another option is to fire a bug to the owner of the modules.
There are some constraints with shared web hosting, so Bluehost is good for a relative low traffic Drupal site, feature testing, or learning purpose. Once your site gets busy, it would be good to upgrade to a VPS solution.
