As you can see from my recent post Personal Blog Update I have started a new Wordpress blog on my own domain name martinwsmith.co.uk which I have hosted with justhost.com. I would like to do a quick review of their services and introduce their affiliate program. All prices here are in GBP but justhost.com offer their services in the US, Canada, Australia and across Europe and you will be charged in your local currency.
justhost.com's basic service starts from £2.95/month upto 6.95/month depending on how long you pay for in advance, if you pay for 3 years hosting up front you pay the equivalent of £2.95/month(£106.20). If you pay for 3 years you also get your domain name for free and there are no setup fees. The less time you pay for upfront the more the monthly charge is, but these charges are still very reasonable, I paid for 6 months at £5.95/month plus £5,95 for my domain (£41.65 in total). When my hosting comes up for renewal I think I will go for 3 years as this is the most cost effective.
What do you get?
Below is a list of some of the features you get no matter how much you pay:
- £75 worth of Marketing Credits (Google Adwords etc.)
- Unlimited Disk Space
- Unlimited Transfer
- Unlimited Domains
- Unlimited Sub-domains
- Unlimited Email Accounts
- Unlimited MySQL Databases
- Easy Install Script Library (Scripted installs of Wordpress, PHPWiki etc)
- Easy to use control Panel
- Lots more.
justhost.com Affiliate Program
After experiencing justhost.com's services first hand I was happy to join their affiliate program, they offer $60 for every referral that signs up for an account. This is a great deal, not only do I get a great host but just by recommending a product that I like I can make money too. Like any affiliate program justhost.com have the usual banner and link ads to help you promote them. Payments can be by cheque or Paypal, I haven't recieved any payments yet so I can't say anything about that yet, but I will post an update sometime on how it's going.
