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.

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...

Review for Justhost

Review by: Mike, from Sarasota, FL
       I recommend this host

We received near instant account setup and got right to getting the site transferred from the old host. Hit a snag with the DNS, but quickly got it resolved. Within a few hours we were home free and live at new host. Pages load fast and yes tech support understands and speaks ENGLISH!

Decent host for the price

Review by: Ricky, from Savannah
       I recommend this host

Just Host might get a bad rap, but I don't see where the problems are stemming from. They offer a low price, high quotas, plenty of scripts and support has been good for us. I would say try it and if it doesn't work out, they have a money back guarantee...

Just Host Review

Review by: Yolinda, from Sacramento
       I recommend this host

I can say one thing, they price is cheap and they offer alot of storage/transfer. Customer service was a little short with me on getting a script setup, but its still worth the low price.

Winning!!

Review by: Elliot, from Las Vegas
       I recommend this host

Just host is winning (charlie sheen humor)! But in all honesty, they're a decent host esp. for the price. If you need an instant online presence at little cost, I would say jump all over it.

I tried them and...

Review by: Carl, from Tuscaloosa, AL
       I recommend this host

Thought they were a good host. Albeit, we haven't tested out the "unlimited" quotas, but support was (friendly) satisfactory, features were abundant and setup was very quick. If you have a site that needs a lot of resources I can't really say for sure.

Insecure!

Review by: Michael L, from Utah, USA
      I don’t recommend this host

I recently had a rogue address pop up in my awstats that was a phishing site for Yahoo which I did not place on my domain. I opened a helpdesk ticket and was told "The server wasn't hacked. There was hacked just one account on it. Looks like, the client's login info was stolen from his local PC and hackers uploaded their scripts. As you understand we can't protect the clients machine." Which means if anyone on the server gets hacked, your account can be compromised. GREAT feeling.
