Yep I agree
I submitted a ticket 4 DAYS AGO and STILL no reply
then the account gets suspended
So they either aren't reading the tickets or just dont care !

“Fantastic Hosting with Great Support”

Written on: 23/08/2015 by FriendlyTech78 (1 review written)

I have been using Powered By Penguins and their Expert package for well over 2 years now and in that time have added additional hosting packages with great success. Logged support calls for things I wasn't sure of or wanted some help with and they have been great. The support has been quick and written in plain English so is easy to understand and action. I love this hosting provider as they are down to earth and do all that I want and do it really well. The price is great, I am using the… Read Full Review

“Absolute disappointment”

Written on: 30/03/2015 by Brewergp207 (1 review written)

My website was temporarily disabled because it was apparently running a large number of processes as the "admin" says. They claimed a large number of ips were hitting my website but when I request a page log of which pages were being hit by which ips or just a page log of the pages hit the most my request was intentionally ignored 5 times.. which clearly means it was all a lie. This was over a good few days. The admin answered some of what I replied to but ignored my requests. Absolutely… Read Full Review

“Good price but very poor support”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by 145Waugh (1 review written)

The price of the packages are very very good. I have been a customer of powered by penguins for a year and so now and in this time the support has just got worse and worse. When i first became a customer when you submitted a ticket, it would be fully resolved within a matter of a couple of hours now i'm lucky if it gets fully resolved at all. If you want a cheap service with lack of support then this company is for you, if you want a cheapish service and good support i suggest you go… Read Full Review

These guys are great. Any trouble I had they helped me to sort it out! Manu other companies simply send you to their help pages and are ironically no help at all. I couldn't recommend them enough. Its uber cheap too!!… Read Full Review

“Simply The Best - Shirley Bassey Woudl Have Been Proud !”

Written on: 21/06/2013 by NoNeedForSheep (3 reviews written)

Initial problems creating my account automatically due to the domain having references to the registrar so confused things a bit. Excellent support to resolve the issue from Paul. Good communication throughout the entire process & they gave me a delay before my next invoice is due :D so I'm a very happy sheep! Thumbs UP ! :D Pricing : 5 Stars Support : 5 Stars Overall : 5 Stars !!! - Chris( No Need For Sheep )… Read Full Review

“Best hosting I've come across”

Written on: 30/04/2013

I've tried out a number of other bigger companies before I found PoweredByPenguins and I have to say I've never found a host as good on all levels. I've transferred all of my domains to PBP. The value for money is second to none (like, 5 websites hosted for £25 per year, that's insanely good value), the support should you ever need it is practically instantaneous, and it's fully featured with a comprehensive control panel. And most importantly, unlike my previous experiences with companies… Read Full Review

“Cannot be faulted”

Written on: 04/12/2012 by Garawa (1 review written)

Are you a bit worried as to how to go about setting up your first website or what is involved? If like me (I was petrified) you were then these guys really cannot be faulted. They talked me through what I needed or thought I needed. A few bits that even novices could do that I was stuck on they simply just did for me! Whatever I have been confused with they have been there not only that, being in the UK they responded supremely quick when others failed to at all! Did I mention they were… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service for a very reasonable price”

Written on: 26/11/2012

Powered By Penguins give a surprising amount of control and plenty of space for a price well under anything I could find elsewhere. On the rare occasion I've had to use technical support they have responded quickly and accurately. Would highly recommend this product… Read Full Review

“Does what it says on the tin”

Written on: 24/11/2012 by PhilBroughton (1 review written)

I cannot fault these guys for how they are building out their services month on month. They respond to help desk tickets in a timely and polite manner (not treating you like an idiot) and have things in place to keep the hosting service online and performant. The price point for the features provided is a no brainer. No Nonsense stuff - If you are looking around for a provider who hosts data in the UK and is not giving any of your hard earned to big corporations... Give this a go and you will… Read Full Review

“Cheap Hosting”

Written on: 21/11/2012 by Littlemonkey77 (1 review written)

I have just used Powered by Penguin to host new new if rather small website and as a novice to web design and websites found it very easy to host my website through their control panel. OK it took me a while to fully figure out how to get it hosted but persevered and got it all up an running. Hosting prices are competitive… Read Full Review

“Good value and effcient”

Written on: 21/11/2012

Powered by Penguins is a relatively new and up and coming web hosting company. I found their prices to pretty much the cheapest I could find and the whole hosting process was simple and straightforward. Their actual website is very easy to navigate and a good knowledge base section with useful hints and tips. The hosting dashborad is simple and straightforward to use and I was able to get my website up and running quite quickly… Read Full Review

“Would I Recommend!!!! I couldn't praise enough”

Written on: 20/11/2012 by SCUBATest (1 review written)

We have hosted with some rubbish web hosting companies since my first website back in 1996, so it was good to find an honest, reliable and most importantly friendly hosting provider in Powered By Penguins. Beyond the rather strange name which insinuates cold and un-British is a rather warm and extremely British service which is not only fast but very robust. I've had hundreds of sites in my time and not once have I felt the need to write a review. I had the pleasure of hosting my main site… Read Full Review
