Our Review of: Just Host

 

Overview:

Just Host was rated our #7 ranked web host, because of their terrific prices, superior technical support and great reliability. Headquartered near London, with offices in the US, Just Host is a relatively new web host, but with the service and reliability found in well seasoned hosting companies. Thousands of customers all over the world trust Just Host with their web hosting needs.

They pride themselves in offering an outstanding hosting service at unbelievably low prices. That said, Just Host has become insanely popular across the Internet and reviewed by many experienced webmasters, who all agree that Just Host is JUST great...

Pros:

  • Some of the lowest prices out there.
  • Many, many scripts available for free.
  • Great Internet backbone connections.

Cons:

  • Too many addons available can increase monthly prices.
 

Features & Specials:

Just Host offers two hosting plans, practically guaranteed to suit almost any web site's needs. Both plans offer unlimited storage and unlimited transfer allowances and a miriad of features on each account. Their premium hosting plan offers 3 domains forever and a few more features dedicated to each account.

As mentioned earlier, even though their hosting plans are low priced, doesn't mean they went light on features. Some notable's they offer on each account are, unlimited e-mail accounts, unlimited MySQL databases, unlimited sub-domains, Just Host cPanel control panel, site stats and more. More technically inclined users will appreciate Just Host's abundant CGI script library, PHP support, site builder, Dreamweaver support, e-commerce shopping cart software, ftp access and more.

Also, now for a limited time, they offer free $25 Yahoo! Search Marketing advertising credits on each new account!

 
  • Tons of scripts with each account.
  • Yahoo! and Google advertising credits on each account.
  • "Anytime" Money-Back Guarantee.
 

Reliability & Speed:

Just Host utilizes 2 excellent datacenters, located near Chicago, Ill. and boasts a 99.9% uptime guarantee. They can offer this unique guarantee, due in part to their unique load balancing technology, which helps ensure that even if your server goes down, your site will automatically be routed to a live server, to minimize any downtime.

A little unknown fact, their datacenters are connected to the same backbone as the majority of businesses in the downtown Chicago area, which goes to show you're going to have reliable connections! The fact that the connections are also Dual OC-48, also contribute to fast web site page load times. They also operate their own server monitoring service for each server, called "Just Uptime", which is installed on each server.

Reliability & Speed Factors:

Summary: Utilizes high-performance datacenters near Chicago Ill, with the latest in load-balancing technology.
 

Support:

Just Host has all the resources available to offer top notch tech support. They offer free 24/7 toll-free phone support and e-mail support, with very short wait times for each, generally under 20 minutes for e-mail support. Chat support wait times are very short, with phone support being just a couple minutes, as tested. Their tech support agents are also quick at getting issues resolved quickly and efficiently, with as little delay as possible.

They also offer online support tutorials and a unique online message forum community, for members to assist others and express any concerns on any arising hosting issues. All this gives them top marks in our customer/technical support ratings system.

Average Support Wait Times:

Chat Wait Time
9 seconds
Phone Wait Time
2 minutes
 

Control Panel:

Just Host employs the outstanding and widely recognizable cPanel control panel software, making site editing and creation simply and easy. cPanel is the industry standard when it comes to site management and makes making site changes, such as implementing scripts, shopping carts and management of e-mail accounts a breeze. They also offer free site statistics from their in-house written "Just Stats" software and free web site builder with pre-made site templates. We found their control panel very easy to navigate and operate.

What sets them apart?

"The Last Hosting Plan You'll Ever Need" - Just Host
Load balanced server reliability!
Super low prices and abundant account features.
Customer service, that excels at every level.
 

Summary:

We think you will agree, that Just Host is flat out just a great host, as we rated them #7 out of all other hosts reviewed. From their great prices, great account features (which were rated #1 on the list), good reliability and more, make this statement hard to dismiss. They really are a one-stop web hosting company that can cater to nearly any size web site, both affordably and reliably.

Also, the fact that we rated their tech support very highly goes to show that they're also looking out for their customers, which is apparent with their very adequate support venues and short wait times. That said, be a believer yourself by checking them out today...

Not Impressed!

Review by: Darriane, from New jersey
       I don’t recommend this host

The technical staff made mistakes all the time and it took a lot of hard work and effort trying to deal with them and trying to rectify it. It was a horrible experience. They sold me a dedicated IP address that was blacklisted; just a couple of weeks of using them, my ecommerce site was down and they did not even know about it. It took a week and 3 different tech support guys just to get the SSL set up correctly. Spent a whole week of late nights quickly moving my site to another host and trying to repair the damage to my domain SEO.

JustHost review

Review by: Jon, from New Mexico
       I recommend this host

We tried to find the absolute best bang for tha buck in hosting. Since we make little revenue off the site really had no choice. All-in-all I would consider them pretty decent and they had what we needed and for the the right price.

Just Host is always delivered what they promise for my site. I've heard some horror stories, but I think they are great and cheap.

Mediocore web hosting

Review by: Davie, from LA USA
       I recommend this host

Being with them for a couple years, I wanted to throw out my 2 cents. They offer a good service, but not great. Support isn't the best, servers not the fastest, and the prices can creep up on you. But, for the price you pay, you really can't complain.

Just try them

Review by: Ashley, from Richmond, VA
       I recommend this host

Just Host is a good host for a great price. If you check around at other places, their prices are pretty hard to match. They also offer a good deal of features, as noted in the site review. Go for it...

Just Host

Review by: Marcus, from Kingman, AZ
       I recommend this host

I see a few not so good reviews, but I wanted to say that for the price they charge, you really shouldn't complain much. Sure, they aren't perfect and no host can offer anything "unlimited" so I rated them a 3 for bandwidth, but they have a stout offering and plenty of features standard. Find someone else that is offering all this for much less?

Just try it...

Review by: Mackie, from Indianapolis
       I recommend this host

I know there has been a little bad hype with Just Host, but I can honestly say that they are a reputable host with no big problems from our end. We have been with them for over a year and they haven't let us down. Once tech support was a little slow, but all the other times, it has been very quick. For the price, I would say go for it...

Plenty of features.

Review by: Adam, from Mesa, AZ
       I don’t recommend this host

I wanted to add that I recommend JustHost. They offer tons of account features and pretty good support at a good price. Yes, there are addons, but for the base price, you really can't beat the offering.

They stick it to you at renewal

Review by: Jennifer, from USA
       I don’t recommend this host

First I would like to say, I had no problems with the hosting and found it pretty easy to use, and accomodating to my software. I signed up with just host, I was very happy with what I got for the money, I then signed up my friends and family with just host. We signed up for around $50 when the year ran out just host automatically billed $110 to everyone. Did not even send a warning. When I tried to cancel the sight they made us jump through many hoops, and I still have not seen my refund yet! (but it has only been 6months, maybe it is on its way)
