JustHost Review


JustHost is a newer host that is causing some waves in the hosting world by being a quality host with bargain prices. Their plans are competitve, including unlimited storage and transfer and domains along with CPanel/Fantastico. Add to that a good reliability record and quick 24-hour service, and you begin to see why companies like JustHost are causing waves with the old guard.

JustHost is worth serious consideration

Shared Hosting

JustHost’s plans may seem similar to other plans, but this is only because hosting competition has raised the bar pretty high for everyone. The days of competing on storage or transfer numbers are over and including unlimited space, traffic, and domains is simply de rigeur at this point. Honestly, I think this is the reason so many hosts are going to just one plan. It is becoming hard to set off different tiers that make sense. More on this in a minute.

Both of JustHost’s plans also include CPanel with Fantastico for easy installation of many popular applications and the usual LAMP development tools (PHP, Python, Perl, MySQL). Shell access is available, albeit for a small annual fee. Both plans also include marketing promotions as well.

On the hardware side, they use quad processor servers with One serious perk is that they use RAIDed storage. Not all hosts RAID their storage, which is a bit baffling given how cheap storage is and what a win it is for the safety of their customer’s data. CPU-wise they use dual Xeon servers, so there is no shortage of horsepower to keep your site humming along. Together these comprise a formidable hardware underpinning for their plan.

Getting back to the tiering problem, you probably don’t want JustHost’s premium plan. You are paying $4 more per month for two extra domain names and a one-time advertising credit with MySpace. Given how inexpensive domains have become, it is simply not worth the higher per-month cost. The regular plan with do everything you need at a much lower price point.
