“AVOID THESE PEOPLE LIKE THE PLAGUE”

Written on: 04/09/2016 by chapman290 (1 review written)

Not sure how this appalling company is still operating. they have taken my money, failed to re-register my domain despite taking the cash. Even more appallingly, a search reveals that in fact the domain name is up for sale anyway despite my supposedly owning it until September 24. I have complained to trading standards and CAB but unlikely anything will happen. Yorhost, STEER CLEAR OF THEM AND DON'T GIVE THEM MONEY… Read Full Review

“Do NOT use YorHost”

Written on: 12/03/2016 by Roccor249 (1 review written)

I have had problems year after year, but with patience have received monosyllabic responses. This year has now taken the biscuit. Not much if anything is working, email is down and I have contacted YorHost repeatedly by any channel I can. Nothing has returned a response. I have paid for a domain I can't use and I cannot get support to find out what is going on. DO NOT USE YORHOST. (Posted anonymously because I don't want any more trouble from YorHost - I'm trying to leave them)… Read Full Review

“HOODINI STRIKES AGAIN - YORHOST NIGHTMARE”

Written on: 17/02/2016

I also had YorHost after being with Web Mania. This year was the worst . I paid renewal in good time for Oct 2015 but my web site has not shown up . I wrote /called /emailed as so many others have. No response. I sent a recorded delivery letter which was tracked and signed for.- so therefore RECEIVED. Then, amazingly I received it back from the post office saying GONE AWAY How can the post office do this after the letter was received and signed for? Hoodini is up to his old tricks… Read Full Review

“Worst ever”

Written on: 03/02/2016 by Stephensqx236 (1 review written)

As with web-mania, Yorhost has been the worst! Having registered 4 domains with them over the years, I am concerned how I will transfer these to some other provider, given what people are saying here. Further, they have allowed a domain name to lapse, even after renewal was paid and my client is incandescent. Do not use these people. Go elsewhere!!!! … Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 01/02/2016 by ir0nic (1 review written)

Used to be so good. Do not expect anything. I paid for hosting, payment processed, nothing, Domains renewed and paid for, nothing. Use a company that at least does what it says! Plenty of other that provide a great, even good service for your money. This, sadly, is not one of them!… Read Full Review

“YORHOST A WASTE OF SPACE”

Written on: 18/01/2016 by DominoSafety (1 review written)

Well after making a failure out of WEB MANIA he came back as YORHOST and did it again to a number of other people. Some have managed to get out with just scratches whilst others, like me, have lost their websites for good, along with their money of course. Although I do notice that he managed to sell the house in York in 2011/12 for £600,000 – that is a matter of public record so no secrets being divulged. I paid good money for renewals that never happened, he kept bombarding me with… Read Full Review

“Total Rubbish”

Written on: 11/11/2015 by T-squared (1 review written)

I have put up with YorHost for too long. They ignore emails and just send bills and do not renew domains when you have paid in good time. I would advise anyone considering using YorHost to find someone else and forget you'd ever heard of them. I find it impossible to say anything good about them and feel thankful that I only hosted one domain with them… Read Full Review

“Avoid At All Costs, Terrible Service”

Written on: 06/11/2015 by Church376 (1 review written)

If it was possible to give Yorhost a minus mark I would. We paid our annual fee on 18th September 2015 and received an acknowledgement. On the 30th October we discovered that our website had been switched off. I have sent Yorhost 25 e-mails and a letter before action by guaranteed delivery and got zero response since last Friday. We have now managed to rest control of our domain name from Yorhost by contacting the registrars. Predictably Yorhost didn't react to them either, nevertheless the… Read Full Review

How can Yorhost still be trading? I wish I had read the review below before signing up with them again! Took payment but did not renew my domain! No response to emails, it took me several days and cost more money to get the registrar changed. DO NOT GO NEAR THIS COMPANY! … Read Full Review

“Charging for services not carried out”

Written on: 13/07/2015

Yorhost sent an invoice for my domain name renewals, which I paid. The domains expired and were not renewed. I had to transfer them to a new registrar incurring an additional fee. All email communications with Yorhost requesting a refund of my payment were completely ignored and consequently I never received the money back… Read Full Review

I had the same experience: after renewing my one year domain and hosting it was occupied by an ecommerce portal. Now the site doesn't exist anymore..
What can we do to have our money back or at least use again our domain name ?

I have now paid another firm for Web Hosting again but did not have HTML files . So I have had to pay a third party to find them and move them over . Still struggling with this.. to get it working . If I do get it working I have lost many years of optimization. I have now paid out £140 . and been without my website for many months. How do we deal with this guy.? Trading Standards appear to be a toothless tiger. Any helpful suggestions appreciated.

“Dump Them”

Written on: 09/05/2015 by Phil09HC (1 review written)

After years of rubbish service from Yorhost when a problem arises, well documented in other reviews, decided enough was enough when again they didn't answer a simple query re renewal invoice. Got in touch with Nominet and operator stayed on the line and talked me through the transfer process. Had already decided on 4UH to host web site primarily because you can host two web sites on their basic package. Like Yorhost they have a telephone and Live Chat but unlike Yorhost there is a real person… Read Full Review
