Just Host Server Location
Data Center Server Location #1
- City, State: Provo, Utah
- Country: US
The server rooms are run by Unified Layer at the city of Provo, & state of Utah in the US. Parts of the infrastructure is also used by other reputable hosting companies.
Please note that since the acquisition by Endurance International Group (EIG) sites are no longer hosted at the Chicago, Illinois data center. The new Utah hosting location is an improvement in infrastructure, reliability and connectivity.
Despite the possibility to switch the customer country service location between United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and Europe — this will only change the currency applied to all billing events (US, Canadian & Australian Dollars, Pounds, Euros) and the actual server location will remain the same in the US.
If you require fast connections to other locations such as Europe or Asia, Australasia it is recommend to utilize CDN services for high speed worldwide coverage.
Just Host Speed Test
As with any host, websites are as fast as you make them to be. Just Host provides special VPS hosting for high traffic websites and the ability to withstand heavy loads. However, with simple tweaks like enabling caching and minimizing JS/CSS one can achieve equally fast speeds with the affordable shared hosting plan.
I’ve tested a regular website that loads within 883ms, slightly longer than it takes for you to blink your eyes. Test was done on seolinkxpress.com hosted by JustHost.
So if you are going with the cheap shared hosting plan, heavy non-optimized resource consuming sites will not withstand the load without opting for the business targeted VPS plan. However, this is true for pretty much all other hosting companies. So make sure to use a good commercial website theme that doesn’t slow down your site. If you are using WordPress, you will have many available plugins that can optimize speed for you such as WP Rocket. Good thumb rule is to optimize until page loads are 2seconds or less.
