Just Host Hosting Review

 

The perfect hosting company for anyone who just needs hosting and nothing more, Just Host offers a no nonsense approach to web hosting. It’s minimalist design will be viewed as both a strength and a weakness depending on who you talk to. Just Host’s goal is provide a basic, easy to use hosting service that just works without a fuss making it perfect for those new to hosting and seasoned veterans who know exactly what they want from their hosting company.

Just Host comes with a lot of bonuses, such as unlimited hosting space, email accounts, data transfers, and domain hosting. They also include a huge number of eCommerce features including Agora, OS, Cube, and Zen Shopping Cart services, and SSL secure servers, as well as a library of free scripts for websites in general. This covers everything from WordPress and Drupal to scripts for project management, social networking, mailing lists, Moodle, and polls and surveys. It’s a significant step above the scripts and support provided by other hosting services.

Something to consider when evaluating Just Host, however, is that they do not provide any web design services and limited start-up support (though they do have 24/7 general tech support), and their functionality is not hugely customizable – for example, they only support PHP 5.4 on their servers.

If the shared hosting plans aren’t enough, Just Host also offers VPS hosting plans that offer greater speed and flexibility compared to the shared hosting options. Unlike some hosting providers, Just Host offers plans that include 36 months, 24 months, 12 months or 1 month, although you will receive the best price if you order the 36 month package.

Anytime Money Back Guarantee

One of the most unique features about this service is their money back guarantee. While most offer 30 day money back guarantees, Just Host offers an anytime money back guarantee that will refund the all of the money for the service you haven’t used. For example, if you paid for 36 months up front, but only used 12 months, they will refund you for the remaining 24 months left on your contract. This does not include any fees such as domain registration or one time setup fees that you may incur. If you cancel within the first month, however, you will receive a full refund no questions asked not counting any single purchase fees or domain registration.

Support

Like many hosting providers, Just Host offers the standard web portal with access to both email and live chat support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The tech support number is US based meaning it will be easy to find the help you need in the language you speak, although the company has not actually said who handles their technical support for them. There is also an online knowledgebase filled with resources for those do it yourselfers out there that would rather avoid calling technical support at all costs.

Final Thoughts

With the wide range of features and the money back guarantee that you can cash in at anytime, Just Host becomes one of the least risky hosting providers out there. With their streamlined approach it may be unwelcoming to first timers but the perfect experience for those with a little website hosting experience under their belts.

Just Host is quick to get started and has an extensive feature list, and as such is perfect for not quite beginners but not-quite-experts looking for a good hosting service. However, users hosting their first website and developers looking for a fully flexible hosting partner might find Just Host less than welcoming.
