    My renewal time is coming up for my web hosting and I don't need the domain that i bought with justhost.

    They are telling me that i have to renew it along with my web hosting. Can anyone confirm as it sounds like BS. This means i'm stuck with paying for a domain i don't need for years...

    Thanks!

    Your hosting account needs to be tied to a domain name. If you have another domain name, you will probably have to buy hosting under that domain name, then drop the one you have and get a refund for the unused time, or renew the domain name the hosting is under.

    This is what I recently had to do with bluehost, and the same people own justhost.

    I find it is better to buy hosting and domains from separate providers.

    thanks, that directly answers it.

    Just a note to anyone viewing this thread, justhost try to lump in the cost of the domain even if you have the renewal option unticked. dirty tricks to get you to pay more. I had to point this out to them and their support ignored my comments several times until i spoke to them..
