“Exceptional Customer Service!! ”

Written on: 13/05/2015 by ZaraYates255 (1 review written)

I am a real novice when it comes to anything technical or web related, so I chose Free Virtual Servers because they are a UK based company and had been recommended to me. I registered my new web domain using their Starter Plus package. I needed to set up a couple of email addresses straight away, and was amazed when I managed to do that myself really easily, just by following their tutorial. So far, so good.... My problems only started when I tried to configure my new email accounts in my Mac… Read Full Review

“WEB HOST PROBLEMS SOLVED!!!”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by Logani106 (1 review written)

Pros: Fast servers, instant setup, free website builder and 24/7 support. Staff member was particularly helpful with solving all of my technical problems. Cons: Their Free hosting package can be irritating when it comes to setting up a real business website. To save time, try out their Starter Plus Kit instead. For those who are planning to try out the free hosting package, then here’s my honest review. It was last 2010 when I first stumbled upon these guys. I’m a sucker for cheap stuff so… Read Full Review

“Worth Every Single Penny!”

Written on: 01/05/2015 by Sherlyn87 (1 review written)

With a series of bad hosting experiences, Free Virtual Servers has been a BREATH OF FRESH AIR! I felt suspicious with pricing at first, but after trying them out I can definitely say I'm a believer! Their technical team was definitely helpful with the host transfer. The process was fast and efficient, saving me from any down time. Unlike other affordable services, this company has guided me from backup to setup. It’s as if nothing happened with my website. ALL the websites I run are working… Read Full Review

“Fell foul of small print - don't assume anything!”

Written on: 18/11/2014 by Juliettex444 (1 review written)

To be clear, I had absolutely no problem with this company during the actual hosting service. My problem began when I wanted to CANCEL the service. I managed to cancel the domain renewal and I assumed the hosting would be cancelled automatically. It was not and - READERS BEWARE - you MUST cancel the hosting separately. Anyway, when I set-up the account originally I had (foolishly in retrospect) arranged to make recurring payments via PayPal. The payment for hosting went through. I contacted… Read Full Review

Fvswebhost's Comment

Written on: 18/11/2014

Hi Juliettex444,

We're really sorry to hear that you had experienced some issues with the payment of your web hosting account.

Like most (if not all) web hosting providers, domain name registration and web hosting account are managed as two separate entities that require two different payment subscriptions. Therefore, cancelling your domain name alone will not automatically cancel the web hosting account associated with the domain (and vice versa). Many people prefer to have their domain name hosted by a different company that provides their web hosting. Hence, we couldn't cancel your web hosting account without your prior request.


Kind Regards,
FVS Team

Hello FSV Team...

Yes, I understand this now. Indeed, you made it abundantly clear in your communications with me. I guess my problem is this - I run a business too, and have done for twenty years, but I would never dream of withholding someone's payment for a service they didn't want or need. Even if the small print allowed me to. And especially if it was for a twelve months' ADVANCE payment for a virtual service.

I suppose I just have old-fashioned principles of fair play. I'm not talking about legality or technicality... (because clearly you have that on your side)... I'm talking about principle and ethics and fairness. Anyway, hopefully readers will get the picture.

“Sorted out a problem”

Written on: 13/11/2014 by Alannahp85 (1 review written)

I had to renew 2 domain names and hosting. When I first took these out apparently only one was originally with Free hosting. It was only when I was recently presented with an invoice for renewing I discovered that, for reasons not known to me, the other was chargeable. However, when I explained I only wanted to keep the domain name and there would now be few or no downloads involved they reviewed the situation and now I have two listings on a free hosting agreement. For this I thank Free… Read Full Review

“Great support”

Written on: 12/11/2014 by Nelson460 (1 review written)

I forgot to renew my website and did it one week later after my second reminder. A few hours it was done the website was not online yet so I contacted the support line. Within 30 minutes I had a reply and they made my website (and also email) working. I must say this is great support as I expected to have to wait for at least one day. … Read Full Review

I had a deadline that required setting up anew domain name with hosting and going live all within one day. I had a hitch with the red-tape setup by Nominet so my Domain went into Pending mode. But I received excellent custopmer services/technical help from Free Virtual Servers who have UK based telephone and 24/7 technical online support. I highly recommend Free Virtual Servers.

Written on: 21/10/2014 by Lesmagicdisc (1 review written)

We have used FVS for many years now, always had very good customer service, and rapid response to the odd query we have had. (Usually self inflicted !) Would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone, be it a personal or corporate requirement. Maybe not allowed to put our site name in here, but can not fault our page loading times and uptime of the servers. Keep up the good work… Read Full Review
