HostJedi is a no-frills hosting provider with a premium price point. Apart from the solid uptime guarantee and the automatic backup-and-restore, features are a little thin on the ground.

Overview

HostJedi

If you are in a hurry, and just want the bottom line: for the same price as HostJedi you can get much better servers with 24/7 support with Hostinger, so why even bother?!

HostJedi doesn’t give away much about its business. Neither its website nor its inactive social media profiles advertise how many customers it has or when it was founded. That said, HostJedi has a modern English-language website and a cool name (if you like that kind of thing).

Features and Ease of Use

HostJedi sells shared hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, a range of SSL certificates, and domain registration. You can expect to benefit from the following features as standard:

  • Guaranteed 99.9% or 99.99% uptime
  • Automatic backups
  • Domain registration available
  • Unlimited add-on domains
  • SSL certificates available
  • Up to 60 GB disk space
  • Unlimited monthly bandwidth

It’s unclear whether HostJedi’s uptime guarantee is 99.9% or 99.99% since its website states both, and this is actually quite a big difference in the world of web hosting. What is clear, however, is that you get two months’ free hosting for any downtime.

Beginner webmasters benefit from a free website building tool and the familiar cPanel control panel that is apparently “CMS ready.”

Shared hosting plans come with automatic backups with one-click restore included. This might not sound like such a big deal, but it’s surprisingly rare for free restoration to be included with free shared hosting plans.

Pricing and Support

Although there are some interesting value-adds, HostJedi isn’t a premium host. It’s an average host, with an average set of features, but above-average prices. Toget the best (still high) rates, you have to sign up for three years, but you might feel better about making this commitment when you learn that the 30-day money-back guarantee for new customers should get you out within the first few weeks if you’re not entirely happy with the service.

It’s an understatement to say the customer service is limited. You can only contact the customer service team via an online contact form, although there may be additional options for signed-up customs as far as I know. In any case, I received no reply to my initial query. There is also no knowledge base or other self-support provision as far as I can see.

Bottom line on HostJedi

HostJedi sells a range of Star Wars themed hosting packages that range from Trooper to Jedi Master. Quirky marketing aside, it is unclear whether you should pay a premium for this provider’s average offerings that are backed by apparently lackluster support.

Before you make a decision, we highly recommend you check out some alternative hosting companies, which we highly recommend.

Pros

  • cPanel control panel
  • Uptime guarantee with two months free hosting
  • Automatic backups with one-click restore
  • Cool branding (which may be a matter of opinion)

Cons

  • Limited customer service contact channels
  • Overpriced plans
