18 Jul Tools to Get Started [#4] Code Dynamic Websites with PHP
Customer-UK – horrible service – I hold an account with #Justhost and I wanted to renew my account. For the last 3 days I called them and emailed them with no luck. They transferred me to billings, renewals, technical team and back finding different excuses to delay the process and force me to pay an outrageous renewal invoice. Once they get you in the loop, they ask for some unconsiderable renewal prices and are terribly unhelpful on the phone. If you want to talk to a supervisor, they are not available. I have never experienced such a bad customer service. I would rather find a different domain and host provider than stay with them.
As I mentioned before, because PHP is a “server-side programming language” it requires a server in order to run. Now, I don’t mean a physical server that costs thousands of dollars and takes up an entire closet — I mean a virtual server that can run on your computer. The great thing about this is that there are a number of great free options out there.
