“AVOID AT ALL COST”

Written on: 15/10/2015 by YamiletHutchinson1992 (1 review written)

Do not, and I repeat, do not use this company. I have been with them (unfortunately) for a year after seeking to expand my business and moving to them from another hosting provider and it was a terrible decision to make. My site has currently been off line all day, with no contact from Hosting.co.uk, and after four hours of trying to contact them they have not responded to any communication at all. I have had business with several hosting companies over the past 5 years and this is the… Read Full Review

“Service has deteriorated / Average Server Speeds”

Written on: 06/10/2015 by knCorbett1968 (1 review written)

For the first 10 months been OK but recently had several instances of non responsive servers. I have also requested support on why there TTFB and Page Load times are distinctly average and if there is anything I could do to speed these up. THey have not responded to my requests for help in this area. I am now considering moving to a company with 3x faster TTFB / page load times for broadly the same money… Read Full Review

As a side note I have been testing one clients website with FreshSites.co.uk and can say they have been consistently faster and service requests fast and helpful. Since writing my review and reading others I have decided to to move away which means I lose £140 in the account with hosting.co.uk but my business is too important to risk.

Further update - just had a bland statement from the comp,any that doesnt help improve the service and another on the 2nd recent unresponsive server issue and they stated it was the monitoring service fault not them when I know my site took ages to load so was their issue.

I have now starter migration to FreshSites!

“Great to start with, shocking a year later!”

Written on: 25/09/2015 by marty-ccl (2 reviews written)

At the start, our website was fast and reliable. Hosting.co.uk had a phone number and live chat for support. Now, a year later, their servers hosting our site are more down, than up, they have no live chat support, no telephone support, and support requests take anywhere up to 24hrs to get responded to. Their support center always blames our website for being down, however, we host multiple domains, some with only the simplest of html, and they are down too. To the whole world. Check the… Read Full Review

“Terrible speeds and poor service”

Written on: 09/02/2015 by Ana49 (1 review written)

Do not bother with this company if your site receives anything more than very low traffic or you plan to have anything more than a blog hosted with them. With only ten visitors our site seems to max out and prevents all from viewing or navigating, and we've now heard the same things from other customers of theirs too. When you're buying affordable hosting, you need to make sure the company can actually handle the site you want to build. It's great seeing "unlimited" all over the place, but… Read Full Review

“I liked it”

Written on: 02/12/2014 by Wetterhexe (1 review written)

I am not some power user. But I do my way around web hosting. This one is exactly that: a web hoster. And a good one at that. I too had a problem with my Wordpress installation. And I have received a good and fast Customer Support (although the mistake was mine, and I am sure the Support Guy figured that out quickly. I like it… Read Full Review

“Customer support awful”

Written on: 01/12/2014 by KennediKane109 (1 review written)

Where do i start, okay so they're cheap and had pretty good reviews, i like the fact they seemed like a small business and would deal with each customer individually. Everything was okay until i ran into a problem, a technical problem. Which there online support staff, just could not answer they might as well have been robots they were unless, had to swing a lot of emails back and forward, moving up technical support level, when i completely lost it, they provided no VALID phone number, just a… Read Full Review

“Impeccable Service”

Written on: 22/09/2014 by petebrazier (1 review written)

hosting.co.uk have been absolutely fantastic. I initially started off on a reseller package which I was very impressed with. I demand a lot from support as a developer, due to running around 40/50 websites at once, some being very usage heavy, I tend to run into issues quite frequently. These are ALWAYS fixed within a few hours. Since joining hosting.co.uk, I have upgraded to a VPS package where the migration was all taken care of for me including a SSL certificate purchase and setup with… Read Full Review

i needed a quick and easy web hoster. googled, found this one, ordered and was surprised: i have set up countless blogs/websites for friends and family, some of which were hosted on some strange servers managed by even stranger hosters, so i know my stuff. with this one everything went smooth, especially for the low price. … Read Full Review

“Hosting.co.uk is the Worst Affiliate Programme!”

This is probably the worst affiliate programme I have ever encountered, awful customer service along with what seems to be a non communicative team who like to pass an enquiry off to another department!! Stay clear if you are an affiliate!… Read Full Review

“Finally a decent web hoster”

Written on: 07/07/2014 by SturmA (1 review written)

I have had my fair share of mediocre web hosters in my time. Most of them seem to always fall short with the basics. This one is based in the EU (United Kingdom) which comes with it's own merit, especially when it comes to data security for your files. But the basics, speed, reliability and price, are the points that won me over, and i don't regret it!… Read Full Review

“Easy and smart”

Written on: 04/07/2014 by KlausL (1 review written)

This was my first time dealing with a web hosting service. I must say that I didn't expect everything going so easy. I even contacted the Live Chat Support and got an answer. I know that this shouldn't have to be mentioned on a review like this; answering a chat windows should be nothing special. But I found that many Services don't actually answer their Support Contact Forms, their Live Chats etc. Nice one!… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: 07/04/2013 by GandalfTheGrey (1 review written)

Switching or choosing a new host provider with an over saturated market is a mine-field. Most of the host providers on a modest budget don't provide a good service based on customer reviews. I've switched to Hosting.co.uk based on the good reviews, while meeting with reasonable service costs. So far so good. They quickly answered all of my enquires usually within 0.5 - 2 hrs even at weekends. Based on the short time I've been with them their service is excellent. There server speed seems… Read Full Review

“Fast and Efficient”

Written on: 04/04/2013

I have used several hosting companies but hosting.co.uk are by far the fastest and most efficient. Emails to them are answered incredibly promptly and they treat me like a grown-up - my previous host seemed to think I was an idiot! I also cannot believe how much faster their ftp transfers are. Big thumbs up from me… Read Full Review

After some trouble with my old hosting company i decided to look for a fast and uk based Hoster. They helped me with moving everthing to the new account and made sure the wp worked as expected. The Site feels much more responsive and work in the Wordpress Backend is fun again. Thanks! Thumbs up!… Read Full Review

“Perfect for a WordPress Blog”

Written on: 02/02/2013 by stacy13 (1 review written)

I chose their Ultimate Hosting package to run my personal blog. I have read about WordPress before but never thought it was THAT easy. With Hosting.co.uk I've had my WordPress installed in under 1 minute, literally. As I'm quite new to all the hosting stuff, it took me a while to figure it out. And the support team was there for me! However complicated I thought my question was, it seemed too easy for the guys. They are really good at explaining difficult things in simple words. To sum up… Read Full Review

“A pro answered my questions”

Written on: 30/01/2013 by cyholic (1 review written)

I have many sites online for different business, with different requirements. My first site went online in ´96. Most times when you ask questions to support or sales, you get a super long sales pitch with no answer. Those guys are different, you know what? They read my email! They answered my questions, short and precise, straight to the point! I am definitely a complicated client. I asked detailed questions about the mySQL and PHP Config, they answered them all. Another important point is… Read Full Review
