VPS Hosting: From $29.99 Per Month

Performance: Questionable At Best?
Although JustHost promises to deliver a stellar uptime performance, some users seem to be highly unsatisfied with the service. A substantial number of customers report multiple account and downtime issues coupled with long response times from the support team, and worse, less than helpful replies from the reps. The erratic hosting performance may be case-to-case though, since their servers are hosted on quad-core processors, with a UPS power backup system in the event of a power failure. It does seem that their representatives can do a lot better with more training, though.
Speaking of customer service, JustHost’s support team can be contacted directly via live chat, ticket submission, or phone line. They are open 24/7 to answer your questions and concerns. However, do take note, some users have warned that they have waited for hours to be responded to, and conversations aren’t always productive and helpful, so it may be more advisable to check out their articles first. If you do need to reach their reps, you may want to allot a larger portion of your time. The company also has a help center which contains articles on account setup, getting started guides, technical know-hows, and other pertinent information to help you get set up.
