JustHost scam

I tried to move my Domain to another hosting company. After calling JustHost to release my Domain, they informed me it could only be done by email. My emails were not returned for 2 days (the day after the account expired). They "could not" release the domain without being current. They wanted me to pay, full price, just to release it. I also found out, when I moved to JustHost they took control of my domain, it is registered under the name of someone in there company, not me. Since the name is registered under someone else, they can hold the name for a year or better, if you decided not to pay them. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!

Justhost is a junk hosting that i used

3 days ago, the server down for 20 hours, then they move my accoun to another server, but they removed my dedicated IP, they said that i haven't cancelled it. In fact, i just cancelled the next renew of dedicated IP at Aug. I sent several tickets to request getting back my IP, but they said they can send an invoice to renew it only. I almost think they are scam. Another thing that you should know, they will suspend your account when your script used 10% resources with no any notification before suspended. So don't choose this junk hosting, choose hostmonster or others are better than it.

Don't use Just Host

We are on a dedicated server with Just Host. Our server has been down for over 16 hours, and they refuse to do anything about it. Their techs are incompetent. Demands to speak with a supervisor were refused. These people are simply bad business, and no one should use them for anything mission critical, as our sites are. We have had continual problems with them since the day we signed up. We are transferring our hosting to GoDaddy, where we have never had any problems.

Biggest Con: Technical support

Just host The worst hosting company !

My wife was diagnosed with Breast Cancer a year ago and been trying to re coop and my domain was
registered with just host and for the past 9 hours Ive been trying to re register the domain.
I am in the process of putting a complaint in the attorney generals office and will be suing just host for
poor service loss of wages. Also getting in touch with the better business bureau. Also calling channel 7 news 7 on your side. For all that have problems with just host please contact the write organizations.


we using it 7 month.
we have on it about 30 domains , and yeasterday when we try access our webpages on all them was error.
What support wrote to us ?
We apologize for the problem.
Your original server was crashed (its RAID array was totally damaged), so we had to start accounts restoration on the new server.
The process is still going on (they are restored in alphabet order) and it looks like your account has not yet been restored.
That is the reason you are getting default page.
I am going to restore account by hand right now.
Please allow me some time to accomplish that.

Yes they restored our account but it was clean! no setings ,no data ! nothing!! no backups..
"As for HDD, it is crushed.
We can't restore anything from it.

Sorry for any caused inconveniences.
We don't have any files to restore your account.
Just the dns zone for domain was not removed from old server.
I have added this domain to your cPanel.

Let me know if you need more help."
And they just tell hdd is damaged it you problem.. NICE HOSTING!!
All out projects we must start from zero..

Just Host does not deserve to be trashed.

I've been with Just Host since July and have had no issues. To be honest, I signed up before seeing these reviews and became quite concerned after reading these and tried to move my domain, but couldn't due to requirements that you keep your domain hosted at a provider for at least a couple of months. This is the deal with most hosts as I understand it.

I've had minimal problems with Just Host and have been satisfied with the support I've gotten. Support is mainly available via e-mail and chat and has worked just fine for me. If you need more hand holding, then you may need to get a host that offers live telephone support. Just yesterday, I had my site hacked and Just Host was able to restore it within a couple of hours.

I just think all these negative reviews are a scam designed to hurt Just Host. I think that's unfair and probably being sponsored by one or more of their competitors. There is nothing wrong with Just Host.

Biggest Pro: Price
Biggest Con: none

No Problem here with Just Host

I had a blog hosted at wordpress and decided I wanted to have it hosted directly so I would have more flexibility and after search the web, I settled on Just Host. The problems have been minimal and the support has been fine. I use the chat feature for support and it's worked pretty well for me. I'm pretty good working with computers, so I don't need a lot of help. Just Host support is only going to be able to assist with basic questions otherwise you're on your own.

I just wanted to write this review from a real person as I feel there's a campaign being waged here to trash Just Host. After I signed up, I came here to read these reviews and was concerned enough that i seriously considered moving and actually tried to do so, but wound up staying. DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ HERE. For some reason, there's a negative campaign being waged here and that's not fair

No Problems with Just Host

I signed up with Just Host and then ran into these reviews here and got concerned. I was fully prepared to switch hosting services but found out that I'd have to leave my domains with Just Host for 6 months before i could switch and I just decided to stay.

I've had no problem with support. They've been very responsive and I like the chat feature as it efficient and I've gotten answers to my question without a problem. The service itself is not a problem. The only issue seems to be that my blog seems to load more slowly than I'd like, but I'm not sure that has anything to do with them

I just think all these reviews here critical of Just Host are bogus and represent a dirty underhanded trick to affect Just Host's business. I've not had any major issues with them at all.

unJustHost will Steal your SiteName Before you even Sign Up

I was in the process of applying and inserted the website name I wanted. Before signing up, I read these reviews and decided that JustHost was unJust and never completed the first page. Remember, I never signed up, but they grabbed my name so I couldn't use it with anyone else. Obviously they keep information about you while you're filling in the form, whether you click OK or not. They'll probably do the same to you. Fortunately, I never entered my creditcard number. Nobody else knew the name I wanted.
I am considering a suit.

Biggest Con: unJustHost are thye Biggest Con

I was assurred of a 100% guarantee money back anytime...

All I've gotten is the run around and I stil am out $94.60. Their add-ons and tools were astonomically priced. the whole thing stinks. I'm haveing my banks fraud team look into it to get my money refunded.

How can i sue

First, justhost is the worst hosting provider, and worst ever support. I had a reseller account for almost 10 moths, and i canceled my reseller account due to daily downtime and my site was hacked 3 times from their staff.

However, i canceled my reseller account and i requested for a prorata refund, they replied that they will refund me $123 USD. That was 21 days ago, and i did not receive my refund up to this moment.

Now, i want to Sue justhost, any one know what is the proper way to do this? Who to contact?

Appreciate any help how to sue justhost.


just host stinks

This has got to be the worst hosting company ever. I paid for a 12 month plan and 30 minute priority turnaround. Their tech support people don't know what they are doing. They are located in India and most of them can't speak english well enough to rectify any issue. They are all rude and there is no way to speak to anyone that can fix or even address your issue. I know I will never see a penny back from the money I sent with them, so I will spend the upcoming time, until jsut host is out of business, educating people on how horrible this company is.
