I have spent quite a bit of time trying to find what i would consider a good web host and domain name service provider. I have used all kinds of services as well, GoDaddy, 1and1, ehost, JustHost, and many more who’s names i cannot even remember any more. With these service providers there where usually some good and bad things and I haven’t used quite a few of them in a while but i can tell you what i do remember about them.

GoDaddy.com – When i used them my username was based off of my customer number and didn’t have a real login name as most people do with an email address or self chosen name; Really wasn’t a good experience in that respect to me. As far as their primary site….. media is nice, but if your page is blown up with media it looks overly tacky and crowded. Hell even going to look at their website now, so many different links in their menus trying to push so many services, it is truly ridiculous in my opinion. As far as their pricing goes, I feel that they are over priced and i can’t stand that they are following suit with these ridiculous pricing strategies. The one in which they want to charge you huge prices for monthly and steep discounts on yearly plans, if they offered a more competitive monthly rate i’m sure they could triple their monthly user base and income. So GoDaddy is a no go for me.

1and1.com – I had used them a while back, but i can tell you that my experience with them was pretty good. There are not many people i have used where i can’t remember or think of something that was a problem but they fall into that category. Their pricing plans are pretty good though they as well do the intro pricing propaganda. Their website is much cleaner and well organized then GoDaddy.com’s website. For a beginner, I would definitely suggest using 1and1’s services as they are easy to manage and set up, not to mention they will, like most providers, give you a free domain name for a year.

eHost.com – They where pretty good, but are no longer around, my account with them was transferred over to Just Host.

JustHost.com – Well now we are to JustHost.com…. First of all, my experience with them makes it a flat out no, no I would not recommend them to anyone. But that is just my experience with them as my account was “Migrated” to them from eHost. But I will give you some basic facts and them show you my reason for saying no to them. The facts, I had an account at ehost and domain name that was transferred over to JustHost and my domain was going to expire so i needed to renew it. And now I’ll let you see and decide for yourself on the reason i decided they are a no.

Conversation with Customer Support eHost  –  Conversation with customer support JustHost

Amazon EC2 – This is a very functional and expandable solution, though i have to warn you, if you are a beginner web host or not very tech savvy you may have some issues configuring your server. I am not even entirely sure that amazon publicizes this as a hosting solution but it is what you are viewing my sites on right now. They have an introductory offer as well, but they offer a year of basic service for free. Those details can be found here. And they have some of the by far most competitive term pricing as well, I use a T2.Micro Instance (Don’t need much) and a 3 yr instance at that level costs (For now) $116. They do also offer to be you domain name provider too and well just about everything else, On a plus side, for me at-least, you can even pay for your services with your amazon store/credit card. My opinion is that Amazon’s AWS Services are best in class and affordability as long as you have a little knowledge or a great troubleshooter.

Hello Josef. My name Keerthi. How are you today?
J
I'm doing alright, just trying to get this domain moved over so i can actually renew and manage it.
K
I understand ,I will try to help you with your concern.

Could I get the last 4 characters of the cPanel password to verify ownership of the account?
J
----
K
Thank you for validating.
Could you please be on hold while I review your account?It should take 3 to 4 minutes.
J
No problem, also if other then transferring in to just host. if your able to get my EPP code so i can transfer it to google domains.
K
Sure.Checking on that.
matrices.us is this the domain you are reffering to?
J
That is correct and thank you.
K
I see that domain registered with ehost .
They will need to provide the EPP code.
J
That's true but i cannot get it from them considering your company JustHost has taken them over. That's why i have no control panel to manage my domain.
I went to log into my ehost account to try to access the control panel and it redirected me to the justhost control panel that can't manage it. So i am under the impression justhost has acquired my domain name along with my hosting services that where at ehost
K
let me check the issue.
Please be on hold while I do this for you. It should take about 5-6 minutes. I will be back as quickly as I can.

J
Thank you
K
Alright, the registration is not yet transferred to us. So you will contact e host support get the domain EPP code. Please contact them here https://support.ehost.com/
J
Ok, thank you
I am in live chat with ehost as well

J
Thank you
K
Sorry for the confusion caused. It is registered with us.But there is known issue about that.
I need to create a ticket for this
May I know what exactly you want to do with the domain?
Do you wish to transfer the domain away?
J
Well, I have been trying to do this for three days and your the first to make any progress, so that is good. but the domain expires today. Well right now i would like to transfer it to google domains and i need the epp code to do that, but the domain also needs renewed, which transferring would take care of too
I intend on keeping my hosting services with just host, but i would like to keep my domains together at one registrar
K
Alright, You can not transfer the domain due to renewal date.First you need to renew the domain here
Then initiate the domain transfer after 45 days.
Otherwise you will loose the renewal year.
J
I will be happy to do that as well, I understand a transfer would take to long with expiration coming due
K
To renew the domain I can create ticket.
J
That would be great, i need to keep my email running
If you could do the ticket to renew it and to import it into my justhost account would get everything so it stays working would be great
K
Yes. Let me create the ticket for you.
J
Thank you very much
K
Please be on hold while I do this for you. It should take about 5-6 minutes. I will be back as quickly as I can.
J
ok
K
I have created the ticket. Here is the case number 04052498
You will get email with in 48 to 72 hours.
J

Just want to make sure i still receive it if there is a service interruption
K

J
Thank you very much, you have been the best representative i have spoken to with Justhost and your help has been most appreciated.
