It's hard to get the same answer from their techs. You can ask the same question to five techs and get 5 answers. They are slow to resolve many issues. God forbid it isn't a simple thing or it takes them forever to figure it out.

BlueDomino Introduction

BlueDomino was founded in 1996 before being purchased by the Endurance Group International hosting mega-company. BlueDomino has hosted millions of sites over the years with their single shared hosting plan. They pride themselves on offering developer friendly solutions for anything from a simple blog to a full-fledged ecommerce site. No matter what kind of website you have, BlueDomino offers the flexibility and reliability you want from your host. As a part of the Endurance family, their product and services are similar to iPage, BlueHost, and HostGator, among other Endurance brands.

Services

BlueDomino offers a single hosting package. Their streamlined pricing model makes it easy to know exactly what you get. BlueDomino runs their servers on Linux (Debian Lenny) with Apache, MySQL, and PHP in a standard LAMP configuration. Their hosting plan includes all the basics, like:

  • Unlimited disk space
  • Unlimited data transfers
  • vDeck control
  • Mojo Marketplace scripts (the Endurance version of Softaculous)
  • Ecommerce website builder
  • WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal
  • Web statistics
  • email access
  • FTP access

While they are a Linux hosting company, they do offer FrontPage extensions as well a, and they do have some Microsoft hosting. Their MS hosting is the same as their Linux except it also includes ASP.NET access, ASP uploads, and MS Access Support.

BlueDomino also has a range of add on services for ecommerce and business sites. These include Ecwid ecommerce shopping cart, PayPal credit card processor, SSL certificates, as well as digital marketing solutions like SEO, search engine marketing, and Constant Contact email marketing. They also have web design services, both custom design jobs and templated design solutions via CM4all as well as access to Weebly website builder. For businesses looking for ecommerce solutions, BlueDomino is a robust one-stop shop offering everything you'll need to get online and selling.

Datacentres

BlueDomino uses two datacentres, both in the Boston area. Totalling 2,400 square feet, their servers are run 32 bit operating systems running Intel Xeon processors and 1 Gbps NIC. They're powered by N+1 A/C and D/C power and are connected to the network with multiple providers in a BGP configuration. Both datacentres have 24/7 security. Their machines are pooled for efficiency, but never entirely on one rack. That means a rack can fail without adversely impacting the pool in general. Further, each machine is clustered with a machine twin that has a mirrored copy of any data. Should the primary unit fail, the data remains intact on the mirrored unit.

Support and Customer Service

BlueDomino offers 24/7 customer support and has a number of additional support options that you can add on to your account, like webmaster, design, or development help. But their core customer service is a combination of 24/7 live chat, phone, and email ticketing. They also have a searchable knowledgebase and series of tutorials for self-helpers. Their phone support is based in the US.

Backups and Security

BlueDomino offers a wide range of security and backup options for their customers. Their servers are pooled across racks and are clustered with a mirroring machine, so there's no data loss should a primary server crash. They offer automatic site backups and restore, an add-on service that gives you automatic backups every few days. For security, they offer SiteLock, which focuses on removing malware and making WordPress sites more secure.

Billing & Payment Policies

BlueDomino bills monthly, quarterly, yearly, biannually, or triennially with progress deceases in price as your plan life increases. Customers have 30 days to pay their invoices before their accounts are suspended and their data deleted. Reinstating an account is possible, but the data is irrevocably deleted and there's a fee to reinstate your account. They accept payment via check, wire transfer, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discovery, and AMEX. However, credit card is their preferred payment option.

30 Day Money Back Guarantee

BlueDomino does offer a 30 day money back guarantee. If you're not happy in the first 30 days, you can get a full refund on your purchase, except for setup fees, domain fees, and any add-on services that you purchase like SiteLock or custom design jobs. You request your refund through their support service.

Conclusion

BlueDomino offers a niche solution for ecommerce sites and businesses looking for a standard host with plenty of add-on features. With robust web design services, plenty of scripts, and a range of both free and paid customer service options, BlueDomino is an excellent choice for companies who are not quite sure what they're going to need for their digital properties but only want to deal with one vendor.
