Just Host’s Hosting Plans:
There is nothing new about their hosting plans, it is almost similar to the plans offered by other web hosting companies but yes when we talk about money, they do have amazing offers/packages for the customers. It is appropriate for non-resource intensive scripts and software i.e. blogs, etc.
They offer Linux as an Operating System. They even provide reseller plan option. Here, what makes them best is that most of the features of shared plans are unlimited. Also their VPS services are built on powerful cloud technology that allows the customers to get more features.
Just Host’s Uptime/Downtime:
Well, no official commitment have been made on the website of Just Host but they have mentioned in their website about the 24*7 network monitoring that ensures quick solution for the issue that arises. If the customer is dissatisfied, he/she can cancel the account or plan any time and the remainder of the term of the hosting plan will be refunded (except setup and domain registration charges). This is kind of an assurance to the customer that they will get the best in the industry.
Just Host’s Security checks:
Security is a big concern for every client and which should be one the prime feature/thing a customer must consider while opting for any web hosting service. Just Host servers are very much secure. The Spam Assassin (Spam filtering software) and Spam Hammer (which reject emails from unknown or unrecognizable contact) are some the best spam restricting or eliminating software. SpamExperts performs advanced filtering algorithms and spam pattern detection, which help in eliminating almost 99.98% of all inbound, unwanted bulk email. It helps in saving time, in eliminating wasted disk space and protecting the hosting services from junk emails and other related email threats. But, SpamExperts require that mails should be transferred through external servers, using MX Entries. Those with customized MX will not be able to facilitate SpamExperts.
Just Host’s Panel of Control:
For Just Host’s customers cPanel is provided as standard without paying any extra penny. Webmail, DNS, Add-on domains and other feature will be accessible with the help of cPanel. Setting up of Google Apps and Gmail is also possible. For billing and account related matters there is a separate control panel area which would require separate login. Also, the customers who have bought reseller hosting will get WHM, it’s a tool which creates, manages and deletes individual hosting account. With Reseller plan free ClientExec package is given to manage billing etc.
