Bluehost recently launched a new account management interface option, Account Manager, to replace the old 'Rock' interface. While management options are generally the same across interfaces, the location of certain settings may vary between the two. This article will illustrate the difference between our interfaces so you know which steps to follow when referencing our support articles.

Once signed in, the difference between the two interfaces may not be apparent immediately. The first giveaway is the account navigation links. Users on both the Account Manager or Bluerock accounts will see a vertical navigation menu on the left-hand side of the screen; however, the options presented here will be different. Review the images below to see an example of both.
