“Obviously fake good reviews”

Written on: 14/02/2017 by A.R.Taylor (2 reviews written)

I actually used this exact site when contemplating going with planet hippo. I saw the bad reviews but figured if the average review score 4 and a half out of 5 stars I should give them a chance.... I shouldn't. Constant 500 errors rendered my sites incredibly unstable. After extensive research I discovered this was indeed not anything to do with my code but planet hippos servers. The actually main planet hippo site has also constantly got debugging error messages visible for all to see. At… Read Full Review

“Particularly useless.”

Written on: 13/02/2017

I tried Planet Hippo for two months and it didn't take anywhere near that long to discover how useless their services are. You certainly get what you pay for. Constant Error 500's not only on our sites, but also on their own front end. Their own site has been hacked. They provide no way of removing a credit card from file. They automatically charge your credit card BEFORE they inform you that they will. They provide no way of altering your domain's registered email as they have failed to… Read Full Review

“WORST COMPANY FOR HOSTING - AVOID AT ALL COSTS”

Written on: 12/02/2017 by chrisdevelopment (1 review written)

My experience with planet hippo started off well, problems were dealt with quickly until November 2016 when it went downhill, Servers started going down, connections were slow, yet all the answers i got were its fixed try it now. No explaination of what happened, considering i am on a reseller program with clients, its important that the sites are up all the time. One of these is a radio station broadcasting live, and this is where it gets really annoying. The servers went down 3 times in… Read Full Review

“One of the worst hosting companies”

Written on: 20/11/2016 by ElliottCrowley420 (1 review written)

1 word would define them: Amateurs. Gave them my trust because they had the 24/7 chat support. Useless. They can't address problems right, or give satisfactory answers. Many times servers down. For short periods of time, sometimes for longer. And when asked them about the reasons, received unbelievable answers. Started moving my websites from them… Read Full Review

“No service for days on end and they take my money”

Written on: 18/07/2016 by Leilani305 (1 review written)

Terrible service provider, The service has been down for days with an "Internal Server Error" displaying in the web browser. Im not at all impressed with the level of service I have been receiving. I wont be spending any more of my time, trying to find out why the hosting service isn't working as it should be. And more to the point I don't see why as a customer I should be 1. Expected to pay for a service I'm not receiving and 2. Being fobbed off with a "we are working on fixing the error"… Read Full Review

“Great service ”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by jzBoyle441 (1 review written)

Planethippo is a very friendly web hosting company, we are hosting a comms website on their system and they've helped us move from expired provider to their system with no additional cost. The speed is very good, our website always load very quick without any problem, we're using downtime monitor from Wordpress Jet Pack plugin and see no downtime over a year. That's amazing uptime and our members love that, they can access the website any time 24/7 Not only our website, we're hosting three… Read Full Review

I am very happy with my hosting. The up-time has been good and the features and options are a plus. I was really impressed with the customer support this morning. The representative responded to my chat request in less than a minute, was friendly, courteous and was flexible with a billing issue. I got what I needed and am VERY pleased. I am happy to recommend planethippo to others who need quality, reliable web-hosting with great service!… Read Full Review

“No messing support”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by Roberts284 (1 review written)

The help and technical support is out of this world good! The live chat is staffed with people who actually know technical stuff. They have solved DKIM, SPF, Joomla and Wordpress problems right on the spot without having to escalate it to a trouble ticket. It's such a relief to be able to get an immediate solution to issues… Read Full Review

“What a find!!”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by 329Taylor-Alt (1 review written)

Great, fantastic friendly company! The only reason I only give 4 star was because at times i have been on hold for over 5 minutes when calling on the phone. I have found the best way to get support is using chat or ticket. Please Planet Hippo sort out your phones answering times… Read Full Review

“Best VPS provider out there ”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by 427North (1 review written)

I have looked long and hard for a decent VPS provider that i fell i can trust. PH isn't the cheapest and I'm not saying they are the best, but I would say that the company are there when you need them, they have good up time, server speed is fantastic and the customer support ability is out of this world. I found the control panel a little different to panels i have used in the past but I am told there panel is industry standard so that must just be me. Good company to deal with and I will be… Read Full Review

“Support is just the best”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by McClellantj132 (1 review written)

I thought I would share my thoughts on this hosting company. Even though they have been experiencing database issues today, I must say that they have kept me completely informed with updates and I am very impress with the eye for detail. Yes all hosts have issues and I'm not saying Planet Hippo don't but they do deal with this in a timely manner and to a high customer service standard. I did at one point consider changing providers as i found the chat support in the evening to be a bit slow… Read Full Review

“Great Hosting provider”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by byHurst89 (1 review written)

Decided to take the plunge and buy one of the hosting accounts from planet hippo. The support has been great, the package is full of add ons that i didn't know existed and more importantly my email gets delivered. I have spent months trying to find a host that wasn't on a black list. The email is perfect and so are they guys that work here. I couldn't ask for better. If your sitting on the fence you should just do it. You wont regret it, i didn't… Read Full Review

“Customer support?”

Written on: 11/05/2016 by CynthiaBarrett111 (1 review written)

Initial very impressed with Planet Hippo, easy to set up a domain and plenty of support to get started. This all went sour when i was locked out of my account on a Saturday - the promised 24h 7days a week support only seems to apply if you can access you email or the "CPanel". The 0845 number is awful on hold for the best part of half an hour without anyone answering and the Livechat on the website proved to be of no help whatsoever an wasted an hour of my time… Read Full Review

“Poor Service, No BACKUPS for customers”

Written on: 04/05/2016 by Samsonj1952 (1 review written)

Well, what can I say, Stay Away from this company. All you people that have been using Planet Hippo are in for a shock if you ever require a backup to be restored.. Why you ask? Cause they don't have any backups. I know, that sounds crazy for a modern hosting company but it's the truth. I recently had a customer website fall due to a programming error and when I approached Planet Hippo for a restore I waited on chat for nearly 2 hours only to be told they couldn't get a backup for this… Read Full Review
