Who are you hosted with?

Hey guys,

I've been with Bluehost now for 3 years, and it's that time of the year to renew the hosting services. I am a buyer of 3-4 years at one go. Now when I got onto Bluehost I bought it at a promo rate of $3.95/month. I was happpy with price, and since then, I've been happy with the service and product. No issues at all.

Now it's time to renew and the best price they're giving me for 3 years is $6.95/month (USD$). I was just thinking is this a bit much? Like I was looking around and I can get JustHost for $2.95/month (AUD$). Since I buy about 4 years in one go, this would be a saving of $192 right now. I could use this for articles/backlinking or something. So if I can, I'd like to save it. But then if I change hosts, Justhost could be just a problem? And is it a hassle ot transfer like 9 websites from one host to another?

Anyways, I dont want to spend too much of my time on this choice. I've been happy with Bluehost so I think I might stick with them. But my question to you guys is, anyone with experience (good or bad) with Justhost/Bluehost? Or what do you guys use out there? What sort of experiences do you have?

Cheers,
Ashton

Oh something else I forgot to add. If I do move my sites, will my rankings be hurt? Especially since it will be hosted on a different IP?

Hi Ashton,

I'm with GVO and I also pay for a year at a time which gives a good discount. The thing I like the most though is that the autoresponder service is included with the hosting (I believe up to 20,000 subscribers for free) so I don't have to pay for Aweber or anything like that and can setup as many autoresponders as I need and send out as much as I want without paying crazy sums for every action.

By the way, as long as you minimize downtime, your rankings will not be hurt. If they dip or drop off for a couple days, don't worry, they will come right back. The technicians did the migration for me so all that I waited for was the propagation which went fast.

I have Hostgator Resellers account which is a bit more expensive, but haven't had any problems with it. I wouldnt change it for the world.

Switching hosting shouldn't affect your rankings unless your site is offline for an extended period of time ( more than a few days).

just a warning here do not ever touch Justhost its complete bullshit company!! I could read that word somewhere and its a Banned word in my personal English encyclopedia. You are probably going to find that Justhost is the best hosting company ever in the fake reviews you guys are pushing:) but... If you want to read the truth you must dig deeper into some real hosting forum to find out... here is a good start
http://www.webhostingreviews.com/ .

I once had a site with around 40 pages on justhost when i didnt know better. After they did run a update i had only 8 pages left :) They said they are sorry for the inconvenience and they could not do anything... I did not have any backup so i had to copy paste from google cache in order to recover my site. Thats Just Host for you....

Matt, Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou so much!
Was just about to transfer to JustHost this weekend. Geez I don't think so... There was doubt in me, but with the 1/4 price I was like, maybe I could cut a few costs here and push em for linking or something.
I think I'll stick with Bluehost then, they've been great.
Cheers man.
