JustHost Review

JustHost is obviously not the best web hosting service, but it does offer some great features that need checking out. It has a user-friendly interface and provides dedicated, shares and VPS hosting. On the flip side, JustHost does not offer some other attractive features like some other contemporary web hosting services like DreamHost and HostGator.

Shared Web Hosting Plans

JustHost offers 3 hosting plans based on Linux. The most basic plan which is suitable for starters charges 5.99 dollars per month. The customer also gets a hundred email accounts, 100 GB of storage space, unlimited data transfer on a monthly basis, basic website backup, and free domain registration for one year.

The Plus plan costs 9.99 dollars per month. With this plan, an unlimited number of email accounts, domains, and storage space is added to the basic plan. The third plan is known as the Business Pro plan. It has fees of 19.99 dollars per month and required a one-year commitment. This plan offers all the features available in the Plus plan. Additionally, the customer also gets lifetime domain registration, SSL certificate and Site Backup.

VPS Web Hosting Plans

If a client does not want shared web hosting, JustHost also offers 4 VPS plans. These plans offer managed services, root access, a comprehensive control panel and server resources. The fee for VPS hosting starts at 29.99 dollars per month. The customer also gets 2GB RAM, 30 GB of space, and I-Tera byte of data transfer on a monthly basis. The highest fee for VPS is 119 dollars per months and offers 4 Tera bytes of monthly data transfers, 240 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM.

Dedicated web hosting plans at JustHost start from 119.99 dollars per month. The servers are outfitted with a maximum of 1 Tera Byte of storage, 16 GB RAM, and 15 Tera bytes of data transfers on a monthly basis.

Setting Up a Hosted Site

JustHost offers a simple setup. Its costs another 14.99 dollars for domain registration when you are signing up. You may also opt for a commitment of 36 months up front. After this, the user is offered some extras. Some of these extras are checked off automatically. These preselected items are Domain Privacy Protection, SiteLock Domain Security, Site Backup Pro and Search Engine Jumpstart. Unfortunately, the procedure of signing up is regularly interrupted by upselling.

Once the user is through with this process, he / she is presented with 3 website building tools: Mojo Marketplace, WordPress, and Weebly.

Setting Up a WordPress Blog

JustHost allows importing to exporting from WordPress without any problems. Moreover, the customer support team is always available in case you encounter any difficulties.

Setting up Email

Setting up email with JustHost is very simple. All a user needs to do is to go to the control panel and click the button marked ‘Add an account.’ Then, the user needs to choose a password and an address. In case the user does not want to create a password of their own, the password generator does it for them.


JustHost provides many security features. A basic backup plan is free. The advanced plan costs 19.99 dollars per year and backs up individual files and folders. Users may also opt for SSL certificates for secure transactions.


JustHost offers easy-to-use and attractive website builder. It is a reasonable choice if you are creating a mid-level site that does not require dedicated servers.
