Summary

What you need to know about JustHost:

JustHost is one of the large well established hosting companies. They are known for a low introductory price but then the prices will go up along with many paid addons and upcharges.. Having personally hosted with them I know they are a reliable company with good servers. I will say the upcharges and increase in price ultimately made me move the site to another hosting company. Justhost is not a bad hosting company and if you go with them you should be happy, just know there are other strong hosts available for your WordPress site.

Justhost is a well established hosting company and they currently boast hosting over 1 million domains on their platform. You will be welcomed by a very low introductory rate, just know that this rate will go up once it is time to renew.

I searched their site for the fine print and found the standard hosting prices.

Plan Basic Plus Choice Plus Pro
Monthly Price $11.99 $16.99 $18.99 $29.99
12 Month Term $10.99 $14.99 $16.99 $27.99
24 Month Term $9.99 $13.49 $15.99 $26.95
36 Month Term $9.49 $12.49 $14.99 $25.49

Justhost is a well established hosting company and they currently boast hosting over 1 million domains on their platform. You will be welcomed by a very low introductory rate, just know that this rate will go up once it is time to renew. The hosting is shared hosting and they do not offer any mananged wordpress options. Other than the above items Justhost is an acceptable hosting company.

Assuming you aren’t just putting up rave reviews so that you can sell affiliate links, here’s my honest assessment of JustHost: They were great until last year. Now it’s been nothing but downtime, headaches, long waits for service requests, and ignored “guarantee” promises. Before the takeover and changes in late 2011 by the new owners, JustHost was a good service and any time there was a problem with up time, you didn’t even have to ask, they’d just credit your account with a month’s hosting. Now? Unless you hire a lawyer to demand it, they won’t give you diddly and the downtime is rampant. Today is yet another instance – the third in the last year – where all sites (EVERYTHING) have been down for hours.
