JustHost uses cPanel as the backend of its hosting account operations. cPanel is industry-standard, so there’s plenty of help and guides on the Internet. It’s also very simple and straightforward. JustHost also helps by integrating their billing and profile settings directly into cPanel and not cluttering it up with upsells and ads.

Value & Long-Term Pricing

Comparing pricing across different hosting providers is tricky. Most offer several plans with different caps, pricing and bonus features. Just Host is no different. Despite what you might guess from their homepage, they actually offer 3 shared hosting plans – Basic, Plus and Prime. They start at a regular rate of $9.49/mo and go up to $14.99/mo. Bonus features are whatever the hosting company throws in to make the plan for valuable. Some of these may or may not be useful to you, so don’t count them unless you are actually going to use them. In short, Just Host has very low caps on core hosting features compared to competitors. The low caps make their pricing a low value based on those features.
