We currently have three web hosting deals for Justhost.com, covering shared hosting, VPS Hosting, and Dedicated Hosting. Justhost do not offer Reseller Hosting.
The web hosting company, Justhost, was first launched in 2008 by UK entrepreneur Chris Phillips. It was purchased in 2010 by Endurance International Group, a major hosting company responsible for many major hosting brands including Hostmonster, Bluehost, and A Small Orange.
Before purchasing hosting from Justhost, it is worth checking out our Expert Opinion as well as the reviews left by our users. As of April 2016, their reputation has suffered, with support response times across most of their brands being the subject of many complaints. An example of how their company dealt with the migration of one of their newly acquired brands, Arvixe, makes an interesting read and perhaps should serve as somewhat of a warning.

How to Redeem Your Justhost Coupon
As a brand of EIG, one of the largest web hosting companies in the world, Justhost frequently provides exclusive deals and promotions designed to encourage new users to try out their services. It is important to know how to use any coupons effectively, as well as get some insight on what (if any) add-ons are worthwhile.
We have set out below details of how to redeem your Hostgator Discount Code, depending on which hosting type you purchase.
Justhost Shared Hosting Coupon
Shared hosting is the most popular hosting provided by Justhost, and three different kinds of plan are available; Basic, Plus, and Business Pro.
1. Activate your chosen Shared Hosting Promo Code above
When you click the “Reveal Coupon” link on the Justhost Promo Code, you will be taken the home page of the Justhost website. The discounted price and notification of the Free Domain should be clearly displayed (link activated), and can be seen in the screenshot in step 2 below.
Some things of note:
- The discounts apply to all shared hosting plans
- The amount of discount varies between plans, starting at 51% Off with their Basic Plan.
- The discount only applies to your first invoice, with greater discounts on longer terms.
- The discount is not valid for renewals.
2. Sign up
Once you are ready to proceed with your order, click the “Sign up now” button on their homepage.
3. Select your plan
You will have the option to choose from three different plans. You may want to consider the higher cost plans to take advantage of the following features:
- More websites \ disk space
- More email storage
- Dedicated IP & SSL
- SiteBackup Pro.
In addition, there are limitations on the payment term with each plan:
- Basic – Monthly, yearly, 2-yearly, and 3-yearly
- Plus – Yearly
- Pro – Yearly
3. Complete your domain information:
Some things to note:
- The free domain coupon is pre-populated. You can leave this as it is. The discounts are automatically applied regardless.
- The free domain is excluded from the money back guarantee, and therefore the cost will be deducted if you decide to cancel within the 30-day money back period.
Once you have completed this section, click the “next” button to continue.
4. Complete billing information, select add-ons and create your account.
You will now see the main order page allowing you to add \ update the following information:
- Account Information – Enter your name, address, phone number and contact email.
- Package Information – Double check your plan, billing term, and add-ons (we discuss this in more detail below).
- Billing Information – Choose to pay by debit \ credit card or PayPal.
- Terms of Service – You should confirm you have read the terms of service, cancellation policies etc. We advise that you specifically read the parts relating to acceptable use.
4.1 Package Information
Enter your billing information, choose a billing cycle. Select or deselect any addons, and then create your account. For best savings (and the advertised discount pricing) you should sign up for three years. Certainly, their monthly plan is very pricey at $7.99 per month, but you can still get a reasonably good price for signing up for 12 or 24 months.
You can find out a little more about each of the add-ons by clicking the “More Information” link.
One thing we don’t like about them is that you have to pay an extra $1.99 per month to get backups for your account. This is pretty much a standard feature you would want, so it makes the pricing a little deceptive (although they are very upfront with the costs). But it is something you should have in mind when you compare it with other hosts. Having a good backup policy for your website is always a good idea, but we highly recommend you consider offsite third-party backups. If you use WordPress, we can highly recommend Vaultpress.
Their Search Engine Jumpstart is the service offered by their SEO Gears website. SEO Gears is an SEO Marketing brand owned by EIG (the parent company) which seems only to provide services to its own brands. The addon will give you an E-Book as well as some SEO Tools, although looking at the other services offered by SEO Gears it would imply that they will try to upsell their more expensive services to existing customers. Unfortunately, we do not have any promotional offers for any of the add-ons.
There are some other add-ons such as their Sitelock Security, and Google Apps for work that may be of interest.
Either way, your chosen Justhost Promo Code will unfortunately not apply to any of the add-ons.

Justhost Promo Code & Billing FAQs
Can you advise which hosting plan I should choose?
Without knowing your website, and how many visitors it gets this is difficult to advise on.
If you’re starting a new website that will not be getting much traffic initially, then you should consider the Basic Shared hosting plan. This can then be upgraded once your site grows, either to the Pro Plan, or their VPS Plans.
Ultimately, though, before purchasing hosting with Justhost you may wish to check out the user reviews, and compare features with some of our recommended hosting providers.
Can I pay monthly?
There are limitations on the payment term with each plan, so you can only pay monthly if you choose the Basic Plan.
What other billing cycles do they offer?
The billing term depends on the plan chosen:
- Basic – Monthly, yearly, 2-yearly, and 3-yearly
- Plus – Yearly
- Pro – Yearly
All these different terms can benefit from one of our promo codes, with larger discounts being available for longer terms.
Do Justhost offer a Free domain?
Yes, with every hosting plan there is a free domain name; you can have this free domain name whether you’re registering only for Shared hosting, or for one of the most advanced options like the Pro hosting.
What types of payment can I use to pay?
According to their website, they accept American Express, Discover, Master Card, Visa and Paypal.
Does Just accept Paypal?
Yes, Justhost do accept Paypal.
Does Justhost accept Bitcoin?
They do not accept Bitcoin at this time. If paying by Bitcoin is essential, then we suggest Namecheap.
Is there a money back guarantee? If so how long?
There is a 30-day money back guarantee, but this does not include add-ons like domain names. Where you have received a free domain, a fee will be deducted upon cancellation under this policy.
Will my price go up when my hosting plan renews?
Yes, the cost of hosting will go up once you renew as the initial discount offered by our Coupons only applies to the first invoice. During the order process, the discounted rate and the renewal rate are clearly shown.
Do I need the Site Backup and Restore Pro offered by Justhost?
Web hosting proviers backup services can provide a convenient way to restore your website in the event of failure. That being said, it should not form part of your disaster backup.
We always recommend taking off-site backups that are fully in your control. This may be done at an application layer such as WordPress specific backups (i.e. Vaultpress, or Codeguard), or on a more comprehensive account level (i.e. backup of your cPanel account). Just make sure you don’t have to rely on your host if your website needs to be restored.
