First, the only cron.php files we should be working with is the one in either courses/admin/cron.php OR courses/admin/cli/cron.php.
The first one: courses/admin/cron.php *can* be called by web browser directly or by tools like wget or curl.
The second one: courses/admin/cli/cron.php can be called ONLY by command line - with the correct path to php version 5.
According to their documentation - which appears to conflict itself:
In one section it says ...
Command to run a PHP5 cron job:
In your case:
In a section at the bottom of the page is says:
Custom Installations without Easy Apache 3 (VPS/Dedicated)
Command to run for a PHP5 cron job:
Using your path:
What package did you purchase from them?
And one more tip: wget has to use a URL not a path. If you have a password on running cron, you must provide the password:
where [password] IS the password you've given the config of Moodle to use.
The docs don't mention it, but wonder if BlueHost provides curl.
Suggest contacting Bluehost and 1) telling them you need to run php version 5 and 2) you want to run the cron.php file at /home/username/public_html/courses/admin/cli/ via a command line method.
