Yeah, interesting that.
It seems that he was using shared hosting and claiming to be a full Tier
1 mirror for centOS.
Basically, Bluehost was found to be hosting more than 30 different
mirrors for centOS, netBSD, fedora, etc, from various customers.
Mirroring those large repos daily pounds sufficiently to cause problems
for other customers on the shared host.
Most of the customers that want to be repos do not understand what it
takes to be a repo, and are perfectly happy with making the host deal
with the issues.
Bluehost is setting up a public mirror for centOS and ubuntu, with
possibly more; they don't need dozens of copies of that same repo
causing a large number of problems for a large number of customers.
