“Escape 95 signed up with Streamline when we decided to...”

Written on: 27/05/2005 by jbartlett1979 (1 review written)

Escape 95 signed up with Streamline when we decided to setup our website selling cheap LCD TVs. We wanted something which would be reliable and quick as well as cost effective. Most importantly we wanted something which would be invisible so that we wouldn't need to spend any time worrying about that side of the website and more time worrying about the design side and adding our LCD technology as it comes in. Streamline has delivered on all fronts and is amazing value for money. I cant quite… Read Full Review

“Signed up with StreamlineNet (www.streamline.net) ...”

Written on: 25/05/2005 by markhoff (1 review written)

Signed up with StreamlineNet (www.streamline.net) about a week ago and all appears to be working 100% most of the time.

I had never had a web site before but it really seemed that £13.99 (ex vat) per year (including a free UK domain name seemed a good deal so I signed up and I'm glad I did).

If you are looking for hosting and need a helping hand along the way then I would suggest you look no further… Read Full Review

“I signed up StreamlineNet (www.streamline.net) about...”

Written on: 24/05/2005 by Shuka (1 review written)

I signed up StreamlineNet (www.streamline.net) about two months ago, ordering the Power User account with a free UK domain which is a bonus. The account was setup active within 24 hours mainly due to the domain name being registering and configuring to the server.

The only problem I had was that I mistakenly ordered it to be on the Linux server, when I wanted to be on a Windows server so that I could use ASP with my access database, submit a support ticket and had a reply within a couple of… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2005 by jamesg69 (1 review written)

I signed up to Streamline.Net around 1 year ago, swapping from my previous (bad and expensive) hosting company. The switch was very easy and I only suffered an=bout an hour of no e-mail.

I have not really had any issues with them around 6 months ago my site did go down but after contacting them they got back to me very quickely and all was back up.

I would definatley recommend them to anyone who wants to host a site on a stable server for very little money… Read Full Review

“Review of www.streamline.net”

Written on: 20/05/2005 by HappyBrown (1 review written)

Review of www.streamline.net
Just had to post really as a reaction of the previous review. I have been on to Streamline's about us page. They do not in fact state anywhere that they host there own servers 'in house'. From what I can see he is a typical customer that signs up to a service, agrees to the companies terms and conditions and then when he breachs them wonders why his site has been suspended! I have no sympathy for him and I'm not sure who his 'friends and colleagues' are but if they… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2005 by iniq (2 reviews written)

Quickly: Streamline get their hosting through Fasthosts who have an abuse of terms and conditions. I advise that this is read and followed to the word. If you have a website with Streamline (or Fasthosts) your site cannot contain MP3's, any form of video file or offer anything to download. Hosting .zip files are also a no no. I am the copyright owner for all my site's content but my site was taken down without warning. If you want video you need to pay an extra £100 for a streaming server as an… Read Full Review

Well I have been with StreamlineNet (www.streamline.net) for a month now and once the small problems of account activation and Mysql, Sub-domain setup are out of the way, it seems to be running without too many hickups!
The server needs a reboot every now and again but what can you expect.
I could not find anything to compare with their service. For the price it is very good!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2005 by raye0274 (1 review written)

I have had an account with Streamline for just over a year and although in that time the site has only been down probably for a total of 1 day I have other issues with their service. When the time came for renewal I did not receive an invoice or a bill, in fact I did not get notification that I was being charged, and now that they have overcharged me (by a considerable amount) I am having horrendous problems getting that money back. In the month since I was charged I have been mailing them… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/04/2005 by shedlord (2 reviews written)

My site had some pages which used ASP to connect to an Access database. These pages were down two-thirds of the time, showing a database connection error message. Streamlinenet technical support is provided by a help ticket system. I tried to get the problem resolved for 4 months via this ticket system before eventually giving up. Most replies which came back up to 24 hours later were zero help. A third of the time I was told "It's working!", because that was about the frequency that those… Read Full Review

I've had several months of database connection problems using MS Access and Streamline.
The specific error is:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x1850 Thread 0x1b90 DBC 0x11226024 Jet'.
And they have the cheek to say that it's a development issue - like hello? I worked for Microsoft for 4 years as a developer and have an MSCD....

Jratsey's Response to shedlord's Review

Written on: 13/06/2005

Well, this in the method I use to get the full path to the database based on a DNS-less connection:
<br>
<br>Session("ACCESS") = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("/htdocs/data/makeiteasy.mdb") & ";"
<br>
<br>They (Streamkline support) have suggested some fantastic reasons for failure, short of blaming Harry Potter.
<br>
<br>Just to sanity check the error check this link, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;295297
<br>
<br>I sent the above link to support but they generally ignored it.

That's the one. Even a stripped down page that simply connects then disconnects from the database (then closes the database object, obviously) will trigger this error two thirds of the time.
* Streamlinenet wrongly said the database was corrupt twice - proved incorrect because a crisp new database did the same.
* Streamlinenet blamed it on my use of DSN-Less connection - even though they explicitly allow these (and it works some of the time anyway, so what gives?). They set up a DSN for me eventually, and this didn't work either!
* Streamlinenet gave me the same standard brush off response, vaguely blaming the problem on the internet itself, twice.
* I posted my exact connection string. Streamlinenet suggested some syntax changes. No change.
* Streamlinenet claimed it was due to my use of an Access database, which have limits on how many users can be connected at once. I moved the live versions of the affected pages to another server, leaving the originals to be visited only by a website monitor. The monitor continued to report the same downtime even though there was only the web-bot visiting these pages!
* Streamlinenet claimed it was a problem with my scripting. When I pointed out the exact same pages were working perfectly on a different server they marked my support request as fixed!!!
Get the picture?
Bottom line is: There's a serious and recurring problem when using ASP to connect to MS Access databases on Streamlinenet's server. If you try to get them to fix it they appear reluctant to even consider it could be a problem at their side.

StreamlineNet's uptime is horrendous, has been out everynight this week. Mention to support but by the time they investigate the site is back up. The most infuriating thing is the attitude, a standard reply that says its working now (12 Hours later), and that you are wrong in saying the site is down… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2005 by elbiggus (1 review written)

StreamlineNet (www.Streamline.net) may be cheap, but the old saying "you get what you pay for" is certainly true in this case. Since setting up an account with them my website has averaged an uptime of less than 1.5 days; I have reported this to them several times and all I get is "An engineer will respond to you within 24 hours" (mostly untrue) or "This is probably due to connectivity problems, internet-wide issues, or it's a one-off problem that we are unable to replicate".

Written on: 29/03/2005 by Good Point (1 review written)

I ordered hosting from StreamlineNet (www.streamline.net) 5 days ago, StreamlineNet e-mailed me and apparently my card was rejected, fair enough I thought, I e-mailed StreamlineNet asking what I sould do about this...no reply, at all. I contacted my bank and apparently the funds left my account the same day I have e-mailed so many times, called, left messages, raised support tickets ... the list goes on and no reply.. not even one.

I only wish I had used my credit card as I would now chargeRead Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2005 by philipchild (1 review written)

StreamlineNet (www.streamline.net) is the worst company I have ever dealt with. Even a year after I cancelled my account they continued to charge me for a hosting account I don't have. They gave me someone else's private details, which still a year later I can use to access their website. They charged me more money instead of refunding money. They do not apparently have 24 hour customer support.

Written on: 06/09/2004 by xaphod (2 reviews written)

Streamline.net at first seems like a good bargain - the unlimited bandwidth offered in particular seemed to me to make the deals offered a bargain. The problem is that you get what you pay for. For the short period my site was with Streamline my site suffered a great deal of downtime, and one instance when files were lost after a server went down and was restored from a backup. The downtime did not seem to be linked in any way to the amount of bandwidth my site was using - the system… Read Full Review

I had a few small issues, however, they were quick to resolve them (I think I was too impatient).

As a customer, you're never too impatient. - You shouldn't expect issues when parting with your money.
