NameCheap vs JustHost

Deciding on a web host can be difficult, since there are so many options to choose from. Reading up on hosting comparisons is one of the best ways to find the right host for you. Below, we’ll be comparing two popular web hosts: One.com and JustHost. At the end, we’ll let you know which we’d recommend.

Similarities:

  • Industry-standard cPanel

Major Differences:

  • JustHost has the standard 30 day money-back guarantee, while NameCheap offers a short 14 day money-back guarantee for their hosting plans
  • JustHost has faster page-loading speeds and more reliable uptime than NameCheap
  • NameCheap has both Linux and Windows-based servers, while JustHost only has Linux
  • NameCheap does not offer phone support
  • NameCheap has many plan limitations, including caps across domains, disk space, databases and email addresses
  • NameCheap has pricey renewal fees

Plans:

  • WordPress available for installation
JustHost hosting:
  • Shared
  • VPS
  • Dedicated
  • WordPress available for installation

Prices:

NameCheap has some of the cheapest hosting available. Their shared hosting can cost as low as $9.88/year, which comes out to about $0.82/month! Meanwhile, the cheapest shared hosting plan you can get with JustHost costs around $3.95/month. However, it should be noted that NameCheap has expensive renewal prices, which evens the score a bit.

Conclusion:

Despite NameCheap’s ridiculously cheap hosting prices, we’d still recommend JustHost over NameCheap. NameCheap is primarily a domain registrar, and they are lacking in plan features. NameCheap also has an unusually short money-back guarantee. Perhaps most importantly, JustHost performs better than NameCheap, with faster page-lading speeds and more reliable uptime. They’re worth the extra money.
