JustHost.com has been around since 2002, when Chris Phillips founded it in Glendale, California. In 2012, EIG purchased the company.
Having looked at the performance of numerous other EIG brands, we have a good idea of what to expect from this one. Here is a JustHost brief review:
A Few Benefits of Justhost Hosting
Let’s begin with the good things about JustHost.
An excellent uptime of 99.91 percent
Consistent availability is among the most vital requirements in the hosting sector. It is vital because it directly impacts the accessibility of your website for customers all over the world. Your business stands to lose visitors (and money!) if their attempts to access your website are unsuccessful. The Google page rank of your site can also be negatively affected by downtime.
Picking a host with reliable uptime is crucial.
JustHost’s uptime over the past six months averaged 99.91%, with only 4 hours of downtime total.
Alright, Page Loading… Times
Website abandonment is often caused by slow loading times. There is a decrease in visitors, page views, conversions, and overall customer satisfaction.
They maintained an average delivery time of 661 ms throughout the previous six months. A fairly average result, though it is faster than the typical 850 ms.
Customer Service Is Sluggish but Steady.
JustHost provides multiple channels of contact with customers: phone, online knowledge base, and real-time chat.
Rapid Deployment of Servers
To complete the lengthy sign-up process that some hosts demand for most new accounts, you (yes, even the global ones) may need to pick up the phone and verify your identity.
What this means is that you can anticipate a lengthy procedure. Or the need to make an occasional call at an unsociable hour.
If you choose to go with JustHost’s VPS, premium or dedicated services, you’ll be pleased to know that they offer instant server provisioning.
Extras and a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
You can get your money back if you aren’t completely satisfied with JustHost within the first 30 days. For those playing along at home, that’s right around the field.
The refund is strictly for the hosting service and nothing else.
Domain names and other similar products are excluded. Given that JustHost provides free domains, they will deduct $15.99, which is not refundable, from your refund.
Once you’ve decided on a domain name, you’re free to switch web hosts. Remember that you can’t move a newly registered domain to a different host until 60 days have passed since the domain was activated.
Besides Google Apps, JustHost is compatible with over a hundred free software applications.
They will also provide you free advertising credits for use on Google and Bing, which is a nice perk if you’re prepared to start generating online sales.
No-cost Domain Name and One Website Transfer
New customers will receive a free domain name for the first year, irrespective of the hosting package they select. After that, the domain you’re using will require a renewal fee.
To top it all off, each of JustHost’s hosting plans comes with one complimentary WordPress site migration. That’s right, JustHost will gladly assist you with transferring your WordPress site at no cost.
Free Scripts Library
Every JustHost customer can access their comprehensive script library at no additional cost.
Any script you select can be quickly and easily added to your site with the help of SimpleScripts. WordPress, phpBB, OS Commerce and Joomla are just some of the scripts you can use.
That way, you won’t have to be a coding savant to configure the scripts you require.
