Our Review of: Just Host

 

Overview:

Just Host was rated our #8 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 #8 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...

They sell you what you don't want

Review by: R. Brooks, from USA
        I don’t recommend this host

I made the mistake of clicking through the order process and found I had ordered items I did not want. Unless you carefully Unclick their check marks, this will happen. I immediately called for a refund and have been sent from department to department with no resolution as of yet.

JustHost is a no brainer... No complaints here!

Review by: Juan Bartet, from Miami
        I recommend this host

Ever since I joined JustHost about two years ago it's been a smooth ride from setting up my site to the ease of use and great tech support response. The cPanel that comes as part of the package is great, full of features and tools with full control of files and folders plus add on tools and free software. So far I've had no problems with the up time and no slow downs. The system is always up and running good, I would recommend JustHost to anyone starting out or any company looking for a better hosting company to change to from their current one.

Not a bad choice, if you want a low price host, with decent options available. No problems so far to speak of.

Best Price!

Review by: Max, from Olathe, Kansas
        I recommend this host

I have yet to see a cheaper hosting plan. Sure, there might be more expensive hosts out there with better features, etc, but for a penny pincher this one is perfect...

Review by: Alley, from Daytona Beach, FL
        I recommend this host

They are cheap for what you get, but no host can offer "unlimited" bandwidth or storage space if you think about it.

How does it get so cheap?

Review by: Kyle, from Columbus, OH
        I recommend this host

For 3.45/month you can't go wrong with this host. Sure, there are better ones out there, but this is very solid performer and did I mention cheap??

poor billing, cancelled my account and disabled my site before I could act on THEIR mistake.

Review by: James Stewart (Wyomingchili.com), from Colorado

I used autopay with paypal with Justhost and they didn't even try to process payment with Ppal after almost two years with them and sent me several e-mails in regards to lack of payment, I had no e-mail access for a month and when I got back in town, my website was dead, this cost me a lot of customers. Would not recommend Justhost, they need to revamp their billing dept.
