“Always Helpful, Always Polite & Fast To Respond”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by Damonj1947 (1 review written)

What more can I say? These guys are always really helpful, they are never condescending (even to non technical people like me) and the response is always fast.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to write a review as I've been a customer for years and they've never let me down on anything. Sitemaker is easy to use, easy to customise and makes my website look pro.

Great for start ups :-)… Read Full Review

Johnminogue's Response to Brandmy's Review

Written on: 22/07/2014

REALLY? I loged a call via the ticketing system. 3 days later nothing. Only when I chased I got a response that pointed me to a guide. I had already looked at these. The call was them closed. I had to reopen it.

Tried calling the support line and almost passed out with dehydration and starvation waiting for some body to answer the phone. very disappointed so far.

“Domain Registration”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by JaniyaButcher (1 review written)

One of the worst registration companies, with this company you literally get what you pay for which is not much. DNS management is terrible, the control panel is right out of a kids HTML lesson and it takes a age to change nameservers compared with the big boys (Heart Internet, Fasthosts, 1and1 and 123-reg) If you are serious about domain management do not go with names.co.uk… Read Full Review

Hi,

I am very sorry that you feel that way as the majority of our customers do like our Online Control Panel, and the DNS management page.

Changing nameservers on a domain does rely on DNS propagation, regardless of who you change them with, so I can only think that the change you made through us took more time to propagate. Propagation is something we advise about when customers make a DNS change.

Again I am sorry you feel this way, in future I recommend contacting our Support team with any issues you have, we can be contacted by Phone, Online enquiry, Live Chat, Facebook, or Twitter.

Thanks

“Our server will develop a fault and reject email every...”

Written on: 26/02/2014

The server at Names.co.uk had a problem and was rejection all Hotmail and associated emails through them. When I was sending emails to a customer on @mail.com (Hotmail) they didn't get it and I lost £450 worth of business. When I phoned technical help today I was told that they have a problem like this every 3/6 months and it lasts 48/72h!!!!!! I have already upgraded from SSL to STMP and now say for reliability I need to spend £50 and get a dedicated server which the business can't… Read Full Review

“Rip Off Domain Renewal Prices”

Written on: 18/01/2014

This company charges £19.99 + vat to renew a .co.uk domain for 2 years, the initial price when you register the domain is £9.99 for 2 years . I have now moved my domain to fasthosts who only charge £7.98 for two years. names.co.uk also charge £10.00 + vat to transfer / change isptag when there is no need to as nominet do not charge ISP's for this. I changed ISPTAG direct with nominet who still charged me £10.00 + vat but I would rather pay nominet than pay names.co.uk They even charge… Read Full Review

“VERY HELPFUL AND EFFICIENT”

Written on: 10/01/2014 by fone4321 (1 review written)

I spoke to Farah to renew my domaine name, etc. I negotiated a longer term deal to get a better overall price and Farah was very helpful. Running out of time during the negotiations, I asked Farah to call me back later that day at 5.30pm. She phoned on the dot! How many times do you usually find that companies promise to call you back and they never do? Farah was spot on time, gave me a great deal and I completed my renewal very satisfied. I could tick that job off the list and move onto… Read Full Review

We've been using Namesco for over 14 years after buying our very first domain via them. We now have several hundred, plus servers. Their services are easy to use and in the event of needing their support services, they have always been prompt and efficient.
