“Value for money Web Hosting”

Written on: 08/05/2014

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

My introduction to 5quidhost came when I took over the job of web-master for a local charity website. A year later I decided to create my own personal website and my choice of host was automatically the 5quid option. Using cpanel for file management and having a choice of three different webmail programmes I found 5quidhost also allows the use of your own choice of FTP programmes. Over the three years that I have been involved with 5quidhost there has just been one short period of time that the… Read Full Review

“4 years - No problems - Excellent service.”

I have been with 5 quid host for 4 years now using their £5 a month plan. The service has been very reliable with no downtime and when I have had problems (due to my stupidity when setting up the site!) They sorted me out straight away with my backups. They are so helpful, which is exactly what I needed when I first started out… Read Full Review

Having used the hosting service for a number of years, i am pleased to continue to use their services. They have always provided excellent service, especially if there are any issues and the technical team are always helpful and responsive. The service up-time has been fantastic and my customers who use the hosting service have also been very satisfied. … Read Full Review

“No Automatic Downgrade, Account Suspension Instead”

Written on: 30/04/2014

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

When I didn't renew the Level 1 hosting on purpose, I would expect the account to be downgraded to the free account, this has happened in the past. Today I got notified that my account had been suspended, and my website was offline. … Read Full Review

We've never actually had an automatic downgrade facility - payment for paid accounts is required in good time to avoid suspension (although there is almost a fortnight's grace period during which further payment reminders, and a final 48 hour warning of account suspension are sent by e-mail).

If you've not done so already, just let us know that you'd like to downgrade to the free account via a support request and we'll look to have that done for you (disk space permitting).

“5quidhost. Do you get what you pay for?”

Written on: 24/04/2014 by JovanDonovan41 (1 review written)

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

I have been using 5quidhost for over 5 years now so I think I have a good grasp of how they operate. What you see is not what you get. What you see is a basic web site selling web hosting services. What you get is timely support when you need it with a no hassle approach, a friendly, knowledgeable support and sales team, and a service that for me, has not caused me one single issue in over 5 years. Do you get what you pay for? No. You get more. Much, much more… Read Full Review

This host does what it says on the tin. Quick, easy, good value for money. The tools are there for the job - I run a simple website and a straightforward online service. 5quidhost provides the infrastructure I need, with a reliable platform. When I needed help, I got it fast and it was the kind of help that solved the problem, not a referral or a bunch of technospeak. Lots of supporting software that is easy to install and implement… Read Full Review

5quid is what you'd expect a web host to be, a straight forward no BS quality service. Everything is clearly advertised, you know exactly what you're getting, and it's cheap, astoundingly so for what it offers. The unlimited disk/bandwidth account is cheaper than competitors limited offers. The best thing is, you can start off with a free account and upgrade in tiny increments as you need more, reducing startup costs to practically nothing… Read Full Review

“Trouble Free”

Written on: 18/04/2014 by ForeignerInPhils (2 reviews written)

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

As an ex-pat Brit, living in Philippines, I need a hosting service which is easily administered and trouble free. Also, as earnings in Philippines are low, cost/value for money are equally important. My primary requirement is for email hosting. Secondly, I drop a few files on my web host for software distribution. I'm not a 'power user' so many of the facilities available are untested. 5quidhost ticks all the boxes for me. I cannot recall any occasion when my service has been… Read Full Review
