Next in our series of hosting reviews is Justhost. For our Justhost review, we will be breaking down the review as we usually do. Before I get into it, I think it’s fair to say the following: Justhost is a decent budget host. If you’re hosting low traffic websites and lots of them, you can’t go wrong with Justhost. I myself purchased Justhost long term for more savings. So far, they’ve done a good job hosting my static minisites, but I would not recommend them for forums or high demand services.
Ouch, not so good in my experience. I do not like automated services and Justhost’s ticket system is quite annoying…
Speed and Uptime
Speed is ok, it’s the uptime that is sometimes a problem… Running a WordPress blog seems to work just fine, but a more demanding CMS or a forum doesn’t run quite as fast.
Running a forum with Justhost, I have found that it is constantly down for 30 second to 1 minute periods. Some of my websites seem to have the same problem. For this reason, I’m probably not going to renew my Justhost service when it expires.
They have a lot of the same features that a lot of webhosts offer. Fantastico one click installs, unlimited emails, etc…
They’re ok, but there are a lot better options. See our Review on Fatcow for instance.
