“problems again”

Written on: 31/07/2014 by 435McKnight (1 review written)

As already written from the other users I am also facing serious problems with Yorhost. Even if renewing the service my domain is being parked for a third year in a row, I am loosing patience because who should be supporting me is not doing his job, he is not replying on the phone and noone of my 6 mails got a reply. I am loosing money because of site not being working and noone from their side seems giving importance for that. … Read Full Review

“Very bad service, do not use.”

Written on: 21/07/2014

I am stuck with Yorhost or Webmania as Nathan Barnes will not assist moving in anyway. In fact he will not assist at all. As others have reported at renewal time every year without fail emails stop working and websites are parked. It usually take a couple of months of threats of small claims, trading standards and police to get going again. I see Nathan Barnes is now living at 15 Queen Square, Leeds… Read Full Review

“Steals your money”

Written on: 23/07/2013 by Yorhost (1 review written)

Processes payments for domain renewals, but doesn't renew the domains and doesn't reply to support emails. Phone is not answered and the other number is out of service. Despite this the registrar they use (they are an OnlineNIC reseller) makes domain registrants jump through hoops that contradict ICANN rules before they can once again get control of their domain… Read Full Review

I moved my web site from YORHOST last year after they took my payment but didn't renew my domain. Today I've had a reminder from them that my account is now due for renewal!!! Cheeky buggers!

“Total pants”

Written on: 25/03/2013

I have been with Yorhost, previously Webmania for several years but the last 3 years I have had the same problem around renewal time. Despite paying in good time, they don't register the domain name and the site gets parked. I have had to threaten legal action twice before the service was retored and I am in the same position again this year. Don't go near them… Read Full Review

“Realised there were probs when crdit cards refused...”

Written on: 14/03/2013

I have just read the previous reviews on this company. I have been with them since they were web mania. At the start very good with a lot of support for your site. As a very basic web builder for a school reunion site, I needed every bit of help that I could get. However over the last few years, whilst I have not needed so much help, when I have the response was bad and has seen my web site corrupted. I requested support but could only get negative replies making me believe that I must be at… Read Full Review

“Like the Mob, once your in they won't let you leave!!!”

Written on: 24/12/2012 by Yorhostvictim (1 review written)

I had my domains registered with Webmania for a number of years, I had my hosting with a much better company and wanted to transfer my domains over. In spite of many, many requests for a code, they just ignored me. Just kept sending me bill for renewal. Which I paid promptly as I didn't want to risk loosing my business domain names. The last time I paid them was in 2011, when I paid my invoice promptly only to find that Nathan Barnes had taken my payment but hadn't even bothered to renew the… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/02/2013

Hi there, this is really interesting - so it's not just me wanting to leave horrible Yorhost. I have my host and my domain name with them and I am wanting to close my website down however, having tried ringing the company, an automated answer phone message comes on saying to email them which I have at least four times now - I have still had no reply. I am absolutely stuck! It needs to go and so does the company! Any advice really welcomed. Cheers

“Renewals, Citizens Advice and Yorkshire Trading Standards ”

Written on: 24/10/2012

No point in repeating the same experience described in virtually every other post ... total nightmare - and seriously damaging to both our business and our clients. We have been asking for authorisation codes to transfer away from YorHost for 10 months. We have followed other's advice including writing by Special Delivery, threatening legal action, e-mails, etc. etc. - all with absolutely no success. We were advised to pay our outstanding renewals to safeguard and keep our domains ... only… Read Full Review

York Trading Standards have been involved for well over a year, (as my review here of about a year ago) but although they eventually managed to get me a refund they seem to want to protect (name removed). Why on earth haven't they prosecuted for breaches under a number of relevant Acts?

“Don't touch with a bargepole”

Written on: 19/09/2012

Like others here, I got repeated domain and hosting renewal requests from Nathan Barnes of Yorhost, only to receive notifications from Nominet that my domain had not been renewed and I was in danger of losing it. Only threats of legal action elicited any kind of response, but he did eventually do what I had paid for… Read Full Review

“Do not go anywhere near this company”

Written on: 11/08/2012

I have now spent considerable time helping three people move their domains and/or hosting away from this company. On all three occasions we had to get Nominet involved because YorHost/Web-Mania/Nathan Barnes would not answer emails/calls or provide the domain transfer authorisation they are legally required to. There are 100s of similar stories online. Stay away!… Read Full Review

“Worst hosting site ever”

Written on: 22/07/2012

They have managed to lose our website even though they send us request for payments. We cannot get anybody to answer emails/Telephone or engage in Live Chat. We needed to put updates on our website and due to an administrative error the password and username got lost. No problem though there is a Forgot Password button on the website we use that. We clicked on it no password came to the registered email. We clicked on it again, same deal. OK we need to contact them and let them know this is an… Read Full Review

“YorHost.com (PoorHost.com?)”

Written on: 28/06/2012 by jlngriffiths (1 review written)

I have used Web-Mania for years to managed domains and hosting. I had a few support issues but continued with them due to the amount of work involved in transferring a domain away. I have 3 domains remaining. I very nearly lost 1 but at the last minute YorHost resolved the problems. I am now in the danger of losing another domain and realise that everything has to move. As LiveChat doesn’t work, there is no reply to emails or the telephone I plan to write and letter and post using… Read Full Review

I have had two new customers this month request help with moving a .com domain away from Webmania. I have written a blog article here on how to do it.

Nominet is easy (.uk)

ICANN (.com .net etc) is much harder.

Written on: 15/06/2012 by Lawro (1 review written)

I have had my domain with them for several years with only a few issues but last week i lost everything. The phone line goes to answer phone, my emails are not being responded to and I have no other options. I have only recently paid to renew and reading the comments I have seen on the web, this is not unusual to be fleeced by them. Anyone that can offer suggestions on what to do next please contact me at mat.lawrence@musician.org Stay well clear of this company!… Read Full Review

“Look Around - You Can Do Better Than YorHost”

Written on: 01/04/2012 by FourPart (1 review written)

I've been Webmaster for www.newmusicmakers.com for some years now, and initially hosted with Web-Mania. At the time there really wasn't much difference between hosting companies, and Web-Mania seemed to offer a pretty good deal. At first there were no problems, until they became YorHost, and then everything went belly up. Initially I tried to contact them to find out how much it would cost for some desperately needed additional webspace. That's when I found out that their "Live Chat Help"… Read Full Review

“Dreadful company, don't go near them”

Written on: 17/12/2011

Used to be a great company when it was WebMania. When YorHost took over, it became a big steaming pile of s**t run by a bunch of crooks. My website disappeared a few months ago and I was astonished to discover that it had been transferred (hacked / sold?) without my permission to a Chinese domain name registrar. My domain still had 8 months remaining on it before it was due for renewal. They don't respond to any emails sent to any of their departments (support, sales, etc). Their control… Read Full Review

I paid my invoice for renewal well ahead of time, but my account was made inactive on the renewal date despite this. Unable to recieve any response from them - the "live" chat is always down, no one replies to e-mail or to the phone despite repeated attempts. These cowboys should not be trading… Read Full Review
