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.

  • Tons of scripts with each account.
  • Yahoo! and Google advertising credits for each new 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...

Spam Email problem

Review by: Steve from Seattle, May, 2012
     I don’t recommend this host

I came back from the Memorial day holiday and was faced with over 500 spam emails. I had been noticing that my spam emails had been increasing, but over 500 in three days - ridiculous!

When I called support, they told me that I was on a server where their "Spam assasin" program wasn't too effective (duh!). I asked what could be done and they told me that we needed to be migrated over to their "new" system. I asked what they suggested and they said to be patient until the migration could take place. NOT the answer I wanted to hear.

5 second wait time for support chat!

Review by: Tony from Around Chicago, April, 2012
     I recommend this host

I was very surprised to see that they're on their toes when it comes to support questions, at least with billing. They were online and after a couple questions they had the issue resolved.

Overall I have to say I recommend them B+

Upgrade servers

Review by: Alex from Albany, March, 2012
     I recommend this host

Just Host is decent, but wish the pages ran a little faster. If they either added more memory or didn't have so many sites on a machine, it would be better for everyone.

The worst hosting service ever

Review by: Joe from Colorado, February, 2012
     I don’t recommend this host

This is the worst hosting company ever. I had multiple sites and the server crashed. They restored the site from a backup a few months back. I lost one entire site after weeks of work and it was never backed up. The answer they gave me was that they only use one tape and it's written over everyday. BS because they went back several months for a tape to restore. The answer was a complete lie. I would run away from this company as fast as you can. The servers and application are unreliable and the IT staff do not know what they are doing.

They offer a number of features and fairly fast page speeds. Support could be a little faster, but they get the job done eventually. I'm pretty confident in them, so go for it.

Review of Just Host

Review by: Mitchell from Pittsburgh, PA, January, 2012
     I recommend this host

There will always be those who you can't please. If you're fairly web savvy this place should be ok. They have really lowered their price lately and have a hot offering. Of course, no host can offer unlimited everything, so be leary of that.

Review by: Lawrence T. Murray from www.ltmurray.com, December, 2011
     I don’t recommend this host

Appeared to be a good value until a simple question was posed by first on-line chat and then support ticket. Had asked what version of php was being supported and appeared to be a difficult question to get answered. I did ask for a refund after the support person appeared to be annoyed by my asking the question of what version php was supported. I did ask, and received, a full refund after a three day initial trial. It appears the technical support department might be overworked or I might have caught them at a bust holiday period.

Justhost review

Review by: Harry from Bluefield, November, 2011

I'd consider them middle of the road, which the reviews pretty much make apparent. Support is a little slow, so are the servers at times, but nothing to make us want to change to someone else really.
