    I contacted them about the 50% discount and they said:


    Hi Sjors

    Thank you for your email.

    The 50% discount only applies to our standard plan, not the premium.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.


    Does the cancellation offer still apply on the standard plan?

    This is what I got from [email protected] when I requested for the 2 free domains.
    > As I see you have Standard JustHost plan.
    > Please take into account that your hosting plan allows you to have
    > only one 'free domain for life'. Each additional domain
    > register/transfer costs $14.95 per year.
    >
    > Please let me know if you would like to proceed.

    :confused:
    So I told them
    Code:
    How is that possible? I remembered I have chosen the Premium Plan because it
    says its 3 domain free, Which is 83.40 a year with coupon code 50off 41.7.  If
    it was standard plan I would have just paid 20.7 for 50off for yearly standard
    plan.
    and now they ask me to wait and transfered my ticket to their billing team. anyone else got their free 2 extra domain?

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the 50off Coupon is for standard plan only and does not apply for free 2 domain. And I'm not happy with their server uptime, so I already canceled my account with them.

    Here is what justhost billing team told me

    Every time you buy some kind of membership at a site, always click "cancel membership". Almost every company will offer you a pretty good deal to keep doing business with them!

    Great guide by the way! I don't think this deal can be beaten!

    They're trying to screw me out of my extra domains, telling me I only bought the unlimited plan and not the plus plan. Well, if I bought the unlimited plan, I would be paying even less than my 44 SGD or 32 USD. They're pissing me off! But I guess this is the risk we take when exploiting people :)

    I'll keep you guys updated.

    If you have read my previous post, you would know that all this offer are just their marketing plan. there is no exploit, this is not a Premium plan but Standard PLAN. When you enter the coupon code they automatically redirect you to their standard plan, which seems like they are scamming their clients. Their free addons are not worth anything, it's just part of their marketing plan. Regarding the additional free year hosting and free whois privacy, I havn't received them yet til now.

    That's true. Its still not a bad deal for $32. It is somewhat exploiting them using the Singapore option though :)

    Here is the last email I received from them:

    "Hi *******

    Thank you for your email.

    Sorry for any confusion, the 50% off coupon is for the Just Host Plan and does not apply to the Premium Plan.

    The premium Plan works out at $119.40 for a 12 month plan where as the standard plan is $83.40 for 12 months.

    You currently have 50% off on the standard plan, if you wish to upgrade though please let us know.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with."

    I checked out the pricing. You only get premium for 6.95/mo if you pay for 4 years up front. Kind of shitty how they redirect you to the standard plan without even notifying you. That's some real black hatting. Looks like I'll be purchasing my domains from namecheap instead.

    So... i will get domain + 2yer hosting for just over $30?

    For my ears that sounds AWESOME, i cancelled my HG hosting plan moment ago and i'm going for most cheapest (reliable) hosting there is... this sound most promisin atm.

    Can i do IM with their hosting? Meaning that i wont be screwed around and constantly asking: "my hosting is down AGAIN, explain this to me or refund me!"

    HG was very stable and it worked as it should be, but i got tired of paying for business plan every month as i was still learning SEO (= not making money out of the SEO yet, beginner)

    But now as i start doing SEO again, i'm looking for good cheap hosting, and i think i found it. Advice?
