It’s slightly more secure, but less featured than running PHP as an Apache module. Some of my [sarcasm]favorite[/sarcasm] features of running PHP as CGI is the fact that all PHP scripts are identified as php.cgi rather than their given script name (thus confusing and/or breaking some scripts), and that emulated apache errors are not registered into the access logs and not correctly presented to the offending party (thus making Referrer Karma and Bad Behavior practically useless).

I know they do. I don’t want to rain on your parade, but it’s also a very crippled implementation of PHP. If you search the DH discussion boards, you’ll find more than enough issues with it. DH’s focus is always on security more than functionality. This is one reason why I will always recommend DH to anyone looking for a secure hosting provider. Unfortunately, I need functionality more.

Now wait just a danged minute! I have Bluehost as my host as well, and my account is configured to run PHP as CGI. How is it that yours is not?
