Jumpline Introduction

Jumpline was founded in 1997 by Marc Hardgrove, Rob Kaufman, and Rick Barber. It provides web-hosting solutions for business and personal customers, and is based out of St Petersburg, FL in the United States.

Jumpline is a privately owned company, and it hosts more than 150,000 websites. It focuses on business-class web hosting, including shared hosting, dedicated servers, and cloud hosting, but it also welcomes personal customers.

Jumpline Hosting Plans

Jumpline has three shared hosting plans that offer limited amounts of data transfer and storage, with increasing allowances across the range. Discounts are available for annual contracts, but you can choose monthly billing if you prefer. All plans come with cPanel and Softaculous as standard, and there's no extra licensing fee.

VPS hosting can be configured using a slider on the website, from the basic package with 30 GB space, through to the largest plan with 50 GB. All include full root SSH access, SolusVM Panel, SSD storage, and 1 or 2 IP addresses.

Cloud hosting supports Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD, and is provisioned using SSD storage. These plans are contract-free and scalable, and you have the option of adding cPanel and WHM if you need them.

The company also offers additional services for online marketing, app hosting, logo design, and domain name privacy to guard against identity theft. Domains are available directly through Jumpline, but you can purchase your domain through another registrar if you prefer.

I didn't choose Jumpline. They bought out my previous host 100 Megs, who were 100% reliable. I don't remember any downtime at all in the 10 years I was with them.

Jumpline goes down for several hours every month. They always have an excuse, like their server blew up. What, they don't have backup servers?!

Their customer service is terrible (they send form letters that don't actually answer your questions). Stay away!

The database of the website I hosted with them, AWS corrupted due to a crashed disk. They found out that the backup was also corrupt, so basically they lost my website which I had for 13 years!! I still can't believe it.

I have 3 dedicated servers with them. Used to be good but now, rubbish. My hardware isn't monitored despite claims that it is.

It goes offline frequently and if I'm in a meeting or on a plane, etc, at the time, then it simply stays offline until I ask them to reboot. Even then it can take up to a DAY before anyone bothers to fix the issue. They simply do not care about up time.

It's a shame because they used to be a very good company and it's going to be a real pain to migrate my 3 servers, but I have no choice. Avoid.

Jumpline Infrastructure

Jumpline uses Expedient datacenters. One is based in Upper Arlington, Ohio, and offers 20,000 square feet of space. Jumpline doesn't specify the location of its other facilities. Customers benefit from access to multiple Tier 1 internet providers, and the Ohio facility is secured with biometric readers.

Jumpline Support

Jumpline offers support via email, live chat, and telephone. Its call center is open Monday through Friday, 9am to 7pm ET. Outside these hours, you can email, and it seems that the support department will respond. The company says that it strives to prevent downtime, but does not provide fixed uptime guarantees.

Money-Back Guarantee and Cancellation Policy

All Jumpline customers benefit from a 30-day money-back guarantee. Some plans are also available on monthly billing plans, so if you cancel within your billing month, you won't owe anything on your monthly renewal date. Cloud hosting is sold on a rolling basis, with no contract.

If you are part-way through a contract period, Jumpline will not offer a prorated refund.

Jumpline Summary

With its US datacenters, Jumpline is clearly focusing on businesses in the United States. And with phone support within ET office hours, this is a hosting company that will be more suited to customers in certain parts of North and Central America — unless you're happy dealing with emergencies via email. But regardless, Jumpline's packages do have universal appeal, particularly its cloud hosting, which is flexible. If you want an uptime guarantee, you may have to look elsewhere.
