“Very Satisfied Customer”

Written on: 14/10/2013

I've tried a lot of free hosting companies before and have had to transfer several times due to various issues - from unwanted pop-ups, to low bandwidth and my site always getting hacked. I switched to Free Virtual Servers and opted for their free hosting, I have had no issues for over 2 years and so I finally upgraded to their Lite Hosting. It's perfect for me and my small business. Although, my site was down for almost a day recently, due to some server issues, they were very responsive and… Read Full Review

“great for forgoten personal pages”

Written on: 14/10/2013 by VCGriffin (1 review written)

In the past I have had to pay hefty amounts every year just to have my domain re-direct to a personal home page, and use some email, which I usually forget about, but since that I have found FVS starter deal, I no-longer have to worry about if I will use my hosting or not to justify the expense since its a one off payment fore the lifetime of my account. which i am rather pleased with, and if I did start using my page I could easily upgrade to a package that is still cheaper than I have used at… Read Full Review

“Gone down the tubes...”

Written on: 10/10/2013 by sbelial (1 review written)

Used to be good but I can no longer recommend this company. There are many many better providers out there offering a much better service at half the price... In fact there are some pretty good ***FREE** hosting companies that offer a better service in my opinion... And I mean free as with cPanel, MySQL, PHP, no adverts etc. so exactly what you get here without storage limitations imposed by the 'fair' usage policy. I've had technical problems with the start with various server settings and… Read Full Review

“Used to be a great company”

Written on: 01/10/2013 by joshgers (2 reviews written)

FVS used to be a great company, I have paid for a Business Hosting for over 7 years, but this has meant nothing but grief from the new customer service department. Constant hassle for being over on my "UNLIMITED ALLOWANCE" threatening to be thrown off a server because of this, then when FVS servers go down, nothing! This company has had the worst downtime I've known for years, something has changed for the worst. I would recommend looking at the many hundreds of similar companies offering… Read Full Review

Hi,

We are extremely sorry to hear that you've had an unpleasant experience with us. Last week, we've had an unfortunate situation where two of our servers were subjected to a widespread WordPress attacks that affected many of web hosting providers in a global scale.

In the next few weeks, we will be rolling out our own cloud infrastructure (located in Bournemouth) which will significantly boost the reliability, stability, and security of our servers. This technology will create a much more robust defence against server exploits and DDoS attacks.

In addition, we have also introduced an emergency phone support that you can reach any time during peak hours should you have an urgent issue with your website.

These are just a few of many major improvements that we will be implementing in the next few weeks. Our team will continue to work hard in bringing the best possible service for our customers. Please let us know if there's anything that we can do to compensate the inconvenience that we might have caused you. We'd love to keep you as our customer.

Thank you for being our loyal customer and we greatly appreciate your understanding and support.


Kind regards,
Tim

“Practically free for life”

Written on: 11/09/2013

I don't think I'm particularly picky when it comes to choosing a webhost. I've had my websites up for the past nine years and have only switched a couple of times due to the perennial problem of spam as well as some of my sites getting hacked. Then I found Free Virtual Servers. I absolutely love their free package coz believe it or not, it's actually free! Although there's a tiny setup fee, it was practically free for life. That made the decision to switch a whole lot easier, because I was able… Read Full Review

“Excellent Customer Service”

Written on: 11/09/2013

I was looking for free hosting for one of my friends when I came across this site. It's not totally free because you need to pay a set-up fee which is quite minimal but after that no more other fees follow. I got confused on how to transfer my domain and made some mistakes but their customer service was readily available so I got that sorted real quick. My friend and I are quite happy with them so far and highly recommend them to those who want free hosting for life… Read Full Review

“Good customer service, helpful and responsive”

Written on: 01/09/2013

I contacted Free Virtual Servers because I had misunderstood how the billing worked: I thought I'd cancelled an account entirely but actually the hosting was still active and I was charged for renewing it. I think that they could be a little more intelligent about this: if I have cancelled the domain, it would be worth checking whether I want to cancel the associated hosting. And I find the Worldpay interface difficult and confusing. However the person I contacted at Free Virtual Servers… Read Full Review

“Reliable Hosting provider”

Written on: 16/08/2013

Been with them for nearly 9 years now. Even though I'm a good shopper and never stick to "what I'm just used to" I always found them good value, good service, and good reason to continue with. I get good communication whenever there are server upgrades, time-outs, etc. and overall quite stable systems. I would hope they can provide another webmail browser that is supports apple products ( ipad / iphone ) than the current 'horde' browser which is not supported. The alternative squirrel… Read Full Review

“Great Customer Service”

Written on: 02/08/2013 by JulieMcConville (1 review written)

I have a number of small websites hosted with FVS and am really happy with the cost and quality of their hosting packages, and have been very satisfied with their customer service. They are very friendly, professional and seem to really care about their customers, even the small ones like me. The customer control panel is easy to use and has been improved and upgraded to make the customer experience even better. There are a number of free and discounted add-ons which have also been… Read Full Review

“Amazing Service, Quick Response & Very Helpful”

Written on: 10/07/2013 by chazman1234 (1 review written)

I have been hosting with Free Virtual Servers for over 5 years now. I can't thank them enough. For one they have some of if not the best prices on the internet. They will always try to assist you in any way that they can. I had an issue with my account which I wanted them to help me out with and it was no problem at all. Overall I would certainly say sign up with you hosting account with Free Virtual Servers its worth it and the money you will be saving will also be noticeable… Read Full Review

“My Dream Website is now a Reality”

Written on: 09/07/2013

Where would I be without website builders? Well, I've got a feeling my computer business wouldn't be attracting as many people, that's for sure. I can fix a computer without a problem, but when it comes to graphics and website design, I'm as a clueless as someone who's never even used the Internet. When I first started using FVS' WebPlus Essentials site builder, I expected that I'd still be left confused and have to constantly contact customer service for support. This was not the case, though… Read Full Review

“SEO, No Longer a Drag”

Written on: 08/07/2013

I'm the type of person who likes to do everything on her own. Because of this, I set up my site and tried to learn SEO keywords so that I wouldn't have to pay expensive fees to use SEO consultants. Well, I didn't get very far. Turns out, SEO is a lot more complex than I expected. I just don't have the time to manage my business and work on SEO at the same time. This is why I turned to FVS' SEO service. I signed up for their monthly package that doesn't force you to sign a contract. This was… Read Full Review

““Free” Actually Means Free”

Written on: 07/07/2013

It's not often that you find a web hosting service that actually means “free” when they claim such a thing. I signed up for Free Virtual Servers with a lot of doubt in the back of my mind. After all, I've been using the Internet for decades at this point and a lot of sites claim they'll give you services for free, until you read the fine print. Let's just say I was happily surprised to find that Free Virtual Servers' promise of over 200 free scripts was true. I host a personal website for… Read Full Review

“Finally, my site is being seen...”

Written on: 07/07/2013

Most hosting sites make you pay extra for advertising. I gotta say I'm loving FVS because they give you a coupon for Google Adwords with some of their packages. Google is pretty much the best when it comes to getting your site out there, and I think FVS must realize this. Basically you sign up, click on the free extras link in your cPanel, and you get the details for your coupon in your email. The rest is through Google. Since using Adwords, I've been able to increase the traffic to my website… Read Full Review

“E-Commerce Made E-Z”

Written on: 06/07/2013

I signed up for freevirtualservers.com because my band wanted to sell our merchandise online. We'd tried several free hosting sites before that and were basically at the end of our rope. Most of them had complicated setup processes and ridiculous fees. Now that I'm using freevirtualservers, I have to wonder why those other sites made it so difficult. Setting up a store should be as easy as a few mouse clicks, right? With freevirtualservers, it is. I mean, seriously, there were times when I'd… Read Full Review

“Best Customer Service I've Experienced”

Written on: 06/07/2013

I can think of nothing worse than having problems with my hosting and having to wait days for a response from my hosting service. This has been my exact experience with most hosting services. I honestly nearly gave up, then I found Free Virtual Servers. They boast of customer service responses in 30 minutes or less, but I assumed this was a gimmick. Luckily, it wasn't. Their staff is extremely competent and friendly. When you run an online business, you really can't afford to have hours of… Read Full Review

“Website Builders for Dummies”

Written on: 06/07/2013

I'll be the first to tell you that looking at HTML is like reading Sanskrit for me. You couldn't ask me to code my way out of a paper bag, to tell you the truth. I'd also wanted my own website, but the ones I've tried to make in the past were mostly text. It's hard to get people to care about your site when it's just a bunch of black and white writing with some images scattered here and there. This is why I'm glad I found Free Virtual Servers. Their hosting packages include a bunch of different… Read Full Review

“Free Hosting for Domains”

Written on: 03/07/2013

As far as the cost of registering a domain, FVS has rates similar to most domain services. The difference is that they include free hosting with the package. I registered a domain for the same price with GoDaddy, but then I had to go and purchase hosting through another service. Basically, the end result was that I ended up paying double the price for only a year of service. If I would've gone with FVS in the first place, I'd have paid half that amount for a lifetime of hosting. I'm literally… Read Full Review
