Justhost is no longer sticky to a single shared hosting solution! Very soon, there will be 3 shared hosting plans to choose from with different features. This article provides detailed explanation and guidance how we can use it properly. No matter if you're existing client or new to this company, it would be nice to know the ongoing changes with the service.
Background of New Plans
Justhost, since from the very start, it has been winning the business by single hosting solution with everything unlimited. It provides all needed technical features in configuring different websites. After supporting one milliong global sites, they find their limitations in serving higher web requirements. Their team provided VPS & Dedicated server choice in the last year at very competitive prices. However, not everyone would like to manage a server with several times more costs. What people really want is a plan between basic shared and full server choice.
Under such situation, justhost decides to have a try by multi-class shared plans. In case you need more resources, just upgrade it without dealing with a full server. The plans their people will launch are named Starter, Shared Plus and Business Pro. Unlike its current all-in-one plan, new plans are offered with different advantages. See following:
Entry-level package, perfect for beginners on a tight budget.
- 1 Website
- 100GB Storage
- 1 Free Domain, 5 Parked domains, 25 Sub domains
- 100 Email Accounts, 500MB per
- Google Adwords Credit
Formerly the standard shared plan, still unlimited with with additional features and benefiting from substantial investments in infrastructure. (Existing shared plans will automatically be reclassified as Plus.) 1 SpamExperts service added for shared plus.
Similar to the original PRO plan with some change in features, geared toward businesses and power users.
- 5x Server Performance
- 2 Spam Experts
- 1 SSL
- 1 Dedicated IP
- 1 Domain Privacy
How does it work?
As learnt above, all plans provide people some basic offers like disk space and monthly transfer. The real difference is about server crowd level besides the extra bonus service mentioned above. At the meanwhile, their sister site "Hostmonster" also announced the same change. There's no detailed explanation for how will it work exactly, but we can still find something from another brand – Bluehost.
Bluehost was also featured for single shared plan and gradually revised for multiple hosting solutions provider. They're now offering multiple shared, VPS and dedicated server plans. Since bluehost is sister site of justhost and hostmonster, mostly they'll be configured the same way like their team did for vps/dedicated server service.

How do we think about the change?
Basically, it's just because of the market needs and justhost is preparing to earn better business. Because we do not get the final plan design and price, it's hard to judge good or not. But it should serve clients better, at least we have more choice before upgrading to a full server. Just wait few days for its final design or if you want to catch up with the old plan, check below!
