JustHost has been delivering web hosting services to a worldwide customer base for more than 15 years. The provider falls under the umbrella of the global conglomerate EIG. One would think that having a pedigree to match this massive company would be expected. However, there was little we found redeeming overall coming from JustHost’s web hosting services. Keep reading our comprehensive review to learn more about what we found out when investigating this provider.

JustHost Load time

JustHost load times, arguably the most important metric by which to measure a hosting service provider’s quality, we a bit of a letdown among our reviewers. Most website visitors admit that they will abandon a webpage within a few seconds if the page fails to load promptly. This is why it’s so important to offer a fast hosting service to web site owners. While JustHost’s speeds have improve markedly over time, a lot of room for improvement remains.

JustHost Uptime

When Uptime is considered, JustHost did perform rather well. With very few downtime events occurring during the time of review, JustHost ranked among the top 10 web hosting service providers we investigated. Overall, JustHost ranked above average for uptime and that’s great considering how much improvement the provider has made since the same period in the previous year.

JustHost Plans and services

JustHost’s web hosting plans offer a decent selection of options for customers to utilize. There are three plans to choose from, including Basic, Plus, Prime, and Pro. The Prime plan is recommended by JustHost. That said, it is the same price as the plan below it and includes the most features of the three plans. Package benefits include but are not limited to:

  • Unlimited Number of Websites
  • Unmetered Website Space
  • Unlimited Parked Domains
  • Spam Prevention
  • Site Backup
  • Unlimited Email Accounts
  • Unlimited Email Storage
  • Unmetered Bandwidth

When it comes to additional services provided by JustHost, customers can take advantage of design, marketing, and additional support offerings.

JustHost Cost

When it comes to the cost of plans provided by JustHost, the prices are affordable in most cases. Prices begin at $3.95 per month in the case of the Basic plan and reach $14.95 in the case of JustHost’s Pro plan. The Prime plan seems to be the best in terms of budget and benefits.

JustHost Support

When it comes to support, JustHost does have great security for website owners to take advantage of. However, when it comes to the actual team manning the customer support channels, there is room for improvement. Whether utilizing live chat or social media outlets, there doesn’t appear to be much the staff on hand are able to do in resolving issues in real-time. Alternatively, the service does come with a 30-day money-back guarantee which customers can utilize at any point during their first 30 days for a refund.

Conclusion

JustHost is a part of the EIG network, which also owns many top web hosting service providers. However, this association has not worked especially well to the benefit of JustHost. There are many areas where we feel the provider can improve service. That said, JustHost doesn’t make it high on our list of top web hosting providers.
