JustHost VS APlus.Net

JustHost VS APlus.Net

It’s hardly conceivable that internet services were offered in 1995, but that is how long APlus.net has been doing just that. Founded in 1992, they started in the internet industry in 1995, and began selling hosting service in 1998. They are one of the very few hosting companies founded in that era that still exist today, and they continue to reap industry awards.

JustHost may be a newer company with their brand of internet hosting starting in 2008. But in a few short years they have claimed a top-ten ranking among shared-server hosting companies. With a single plan that beats most others, JustHost reliability backed by an industry-leading guarantee has hit the mark with hundreds of thousands of customers.

Between these two industry giants, which one is right for your website? Read our comparison and recommendation below.

Pricing

JustHost has one easy plan for their clients offered at just $4.45 per month.

Aplus.net offers 4 shared hosting plans starting with their Personal Plan for $5.95/mo, the Business Plan for $9.95/mo (on special for just $4.98/mo at the time of this review), the Professional Plan for $19.95/mo, and the eCommerce Plan for $34.95/mo.

Products and Services

APlus.net is proud to offer extra professional services for their clients including professional web design, professional online marketing services, and search engine solutions. They also offer domain registration and options for dedicated server hosting with their partner, Codero.

JustHost stays focused on providing solid hosting, but they do offer free extra products like over $200 in marketing credits with Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, and more. They offer cPanel control panel which is tops on the market. And they offer an anytime money back guarantee.

Web Hosting Features

JustHost offers their plan with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, email accounts, MySQL databases, and hosted domains. And if that’s not enough, they offer free eCommerce solutions with a choice of shopping carts. They support popular scripting languages and 3rd party software plugins. Clients also can upload and utilize multi-media files.

Aplus.net offers at least one free domain registration, and up to three with their eCommerce Plan. No unlimited features here, but they do offer bountiful amounts of bandwidth at 250GB, 2,000GB, 3,000GB, and 5,000GB for each plan respectively. Disk space is allotted at 15GB, 200GB, 300GB, and 500GB respectively. The amounts of MySQL databases and email accounts are suitable, but certainly far from plentiful. Aplus.net does offer scripting support and 3rd party plugins, but all plans but the eCommerce Plan must buy up for eCommerce solutions.

Customer Service

APlus.net offers 9am-9pm telephone support, but tech support is available 24 hours a day via chat or email. Users can get help through an online forum as well.

JustHost offers 24 hour support via telephone, email and chat, and offers a wide array of video tutorials and articles through their help center.

Recommendations

For the general website user and small business website, we recommend JustHost. Their plan is priced right with plenty of great features that will satisfy practically all types of websites.
