    justhost.com is a fraud

    this site seems like a big fraud. first of all when you call them, it sounds like they are India but they say they are in USA and they are never in their office. seems like they've redirected those 1800 numbers to their cell phones.

    2ndly, on the front page it says $3.95 special promotion and crosses out $6.95 but when you subscribe then the rate is 6.95 not 3.95.

    and then seems like they've created this website where they rate web hosting companies and they rated theirs on top and they've a couple more identical hosting companies in that list too. so if you miss one, you don't miss the other. the rating site is called thetop10bestwebhosting.com/ca

    check the top 3. They all have 6.95 crossed out and "special" price is 3.95 (not 3.99 or 3.90 or 3.9whatever but 3.95). They all have offices in USA, UK & Australia. and their features are identical.

    absolute fraud.

    JustUptime redirects to Justhost.com

    JustHost seems to have some serious advertising $$ as they as at the very top of quite a few "web hosting review sites such as http://www.webhostingstuff.com/, ect. Note: These are paid review sites, no actually based on user experience. Does JustHost even deliver a service once you pay?

    Well they are:

    " A BBB Accredited business since 03/23/2009 "
    so if they have done anything wrong, report them to BBB

    otherwise is it 'good form' to bad mouth them here on WHT ?

    I wouldn't call them a fraud as they technically do host websites if you pay them.

    They seem like a team of advertising majors running a hosting business. Silly I know, but all their fake review sites are quite effective in fooling unsuspecting customers since they've been up running for a year now ?

    Try asking their livechat with the simplest technical question and you'll get booted off. Amazing bunch really.

    I think this is an amazing summary of the provider JustHost . They know how to market, that is for sure.

    True, they are fruad.

    I signed up with them. I have sent cancellation request to them but no response.

    The bad news is i signed up via credit card.

    That's the way people tend to do it, they put up $3.95 if you pay annualy etc. and gradually higher the price if you pay monthly

    Good point, I think it's best to take it with the BBB if there are any issues, especially if they're accredited business of BBB

    like others said, there is no fraud going on. Just maybe a "scam"
