JustHost Review is one of the leading web-hosting companies that is serving it’s best, on a budget. It is not that much budget-friendly as some others are, but does it worth for what its price-tag is asking for? Let’s have a look on that.


1. Best Uptime (99.97%):

We tested JustHost Services for past 10 months and found its Uprate to be better than some of More-Known in the market. It’s average uptime during the whole period of 10 months was 99.98% which, is one of the best, right now in the market. Some other web-hosts can be providing this-much great uptime rate but, with a more expensive price-tag, so, this can be a good deal if you can get this much stable uptime in this price range, even with lots of extra features as well. The average uptime rate is listed below.

  • Average Uptime in August 2018 was 100%
  • Average Uptime in September 2018 was 100%
  • Average Uptime in October 2018 was 99.78%
  • Average Uptime in November 2018 was 100%
  • Average Uptime in December 2018 was 100%
  • Average Uptime in January 2019 was 100%
  • Average Uptime in February 2019 was 100%
  • Average Uptime in March 2019 was 100%
  • Average Uptime in April 2019 was 99.99%
  • Average Uptime in May 2019 was 100%

2. Average Response Time(607ms):

During our whole 10 months testing period, we found that the response time of our site on JustHost, had a pretty average response time. But, you can’t expect more than this, in this much lower price range. It was pretty good to actually have that fast load time with this kind of, cheap priced web-host. This is not suitable for and ecommerce site, but actually good for a regular site. And one more thing. If you want more speed and fast load time, then you can actually upgrade to its premium plan, that will do a wonder for your site. Average Uptime which i’ve got during the whole period of 10 months is listed below.

  • Average load time in August 2018 was 516ms
  • Average load time in September 2018 was 489ms
  • Average load time in October 2018 was 545ms
  • Average load time in November 2018 was 486ms
  • Average load time in December 2018 was 549ms
  • Average load time in January 2019 was 734ms
  • Average load time in February 2019 was 616ms
  • Average load time in March 2019 was 711ms
  • Average load time in April 2019 was 803ms
  • Average load time in May 2019 was 627ms

3. Add-ons & integrations:

JustHost also includes thousands of add-ons and integrations with other open-source sites and even includes free credits for Google/bing advertisements. This is a plus point for the deal because, you can reach out more audiences and promote your sales , without spending any extra, it mean that by getting their services, you can actually get more audiences without any extra burden on your pocket.

4. Free Domain:

JustHost provides you a free domain name with all the plans that are for the time period of atleast one year (12-months and more) if you purchase a web-hosting service for that much time, then you won’t have to pay anything extra for the domain name. All you need to do is just to pay the set-up fee for you hosting services, and that’s it. You’ll get a free domain name along with that. You can even transfer your existing domain to JustHost, if you already have one. You don’t need to worry for the fee for that too.

5. Free Script Library:

There’s another plus point of JustHost Hosting Service that with all their new Signups, customer can also get a Complete scripts library, free of cost.You can also add scripts to your site, with just one click. These scripts include WordPress, osCommerce, phpBB and Joomla as well. You don’t even need to be techie-expert to install a script to your website while going with JustHost Hosting plans, they provide their best services to you and you can just do that with one click and that’s it. It is as simple as that.

6. Security:

JustHost provides you different type of security to your website just to ensure that you are getting their best services. They provide you free SSL, SSH and SiteLock as well which includes different features like.

  • Daily 360-degree vulnerability scanning.
  • Reports.
  • Alerts & Email Notifications.
  • A dynamic verifiable security badge.
  • Security Maintenance.
  • 360-degree scanning (defacement, drive-by downloads, database vulnerabilities and application vulnerabilities).

While getting hosting services from JustHost, you don’t need to get worried about any kind of security issues for your site, JustHost will do it themselves.

7. cPanel:

JustHost provides you cPanel with all new signups. Their cPanel is completely User-Friendly and fully customizable. It is so simplified so even a new user can easily interact with this, without any hustle or confusion. This means that they do care for their customers and always try to provide the best for their customers ease of use.

8. 30-Days Money-Back Guarantee:

Just like some other web hosts in the market, JustHost also provide its customers a 30-days, money-back guarantee, so that, they can try their services free from any risk of losing their money. You can apply for a refund any time within one month of getting started with their services, if you feel that it’s not suitable for you and you will get an instant refund as well. Although please keep in mind that there’s a $15-setup fee which is not refundable at all. You cannot ask them to refund that. Otherwise, you can get a refund of everything else that you’ve paid for. So that won’t be a big issue for you as well.


1. Poor Customer Support:

Their Live-Chat is just Horrible. It takes you a long time to connect to their Representatives and most of the time, all they do is just sending Links from FAQs related to your question. So, their Customer services are so disappointing in our observations. If 24/7 “Effective” Live Support is important to you, than you might think twice before getting their services. That’s all i can say about them.

2. “Budget-Friendly” Really?

Their basic web-hosting plan is for as low as $3.95/month but that’s the only case when you’ll need to pay for the whole 3 years at once, if you want that much lower rate. But Remember that if you are paying for an annual subscription, the rate will be higher ($5.95/month) or for a monthly subscription, it would be the highest($7.99/month). And even after the expiry of this promotional time period, the rate will jump to even higher values which makes it come across in the line of some of the best web hosts, which are at least, better than this one. So, it is not as budget friendly as some others are. So, be conscious while choosing this web host at all.

3. Frustrating Upsells:

The amount of upsells that you’ll get while signing up for JustHost, is simply Horrible. You need to be so conscious while signing up and you need to Uncheck them all in case you don’t wanna lose extra money out of your bank account. These upsells are just worthless and don’t really have to do anything other than making a burden on your pocket. So, please always uncheck them consciously at every time when you sign up.

Do we Recommend JustHost?

No, we simply don’t do. Although their Uptime rate and Security is perfect for an eCommerce site, but other things are not that much good as they should be. Support System is Horrible, Load time is too slow and even, these frustrating Upsells. So, it’s better for you to look for some other options around in this price range as well.
