“Finally, hosting as it should be!”

Written on: 13/10/2014 by Guillermoi257 (1 review written)

I joined HostPresto after having an awful time at my old host, i can only say i wish i found them sooner. I've not had a single problem with the hosting, and the queries i've had have been delt with fast, efficiently and personally. The hosting is really quick, and it was simple to get going and upload my site. I've since setup email on my iPhone and kept it in sync with my desktop - now i don't know how i lived without it! Keep up the good work, guys!… Read Full Review

“Great hosting, friendly support.”

Written on: 13/10/2014 by Powell259 (1 review written)

I joined HostPresto a few weeks ago. So far i've been throughly impressed, not at all what i was expecting considering the reasonable price. The servers are fast, and the control panel very easy to use, which is great as i'm not really a techie. I've had to contact support a few times, someone responded and was really helpful, told me exactly what i needed to know and more. Wouldn't have a problem recommending them to anyone, they've been great… Read Full Review

“HostPresto is nightmare! Terrible service. Terrible...”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by lev_levin (1 review written)

I have already wrote a one star review about HostPresto (Dream-hosting back then - they renamed themselves) here but HostPresto claimed it wrong and removed. I didn't bother to argue with HostPresto since I still was their client. I moved to a good reliable service now and almost forget about that horrible experience of being their client but the last email from them irritates me again. Email subj: "This is a notice that a recent credit card payment we attempted on the card we have registered… Read Full Review

“Excellent Company!”

I have been working as a freelance web designer since 2012 and have used Dreamhosting from day one. Their customer service and support is second to none and would like to personally thank the person from sales and the person from support for all there help and patience. An excellent company all round!… Read Full Review

Well, my experience with this company is a little bit different than yours. I opened an account, my credit card was charged and immediately the account appeared to be stalled. It was impossible to log in. Emailed them several times but there was no reply. I decided to open an account at another company after a week of waiting in vain and never returned to Dream hosting anymore.

“Customer service A1”

Written on: 11/03/2014 by dezyboy (1 review written)

Been with dream-hosting.co.uk for years .. about 6 years at a guess, the initial setup and domain transfer was seamlessly brilliant and never had any problems or reason to contact the customer service until recently when I lost the ability to send and receive emails. The feeling of dread at having to contact customer services was soon pushed aside by a very helpful chap called Nic , after asking just a few questions he soon had the problem solved within minutes of me doing the support… Read Full Review

“Great service I would recommend”

Written on: 06/01/2014 by raja27 (1 review written)

We're so happy to have come back to Dream Hosting. We were with another web host which had a huge number of staff with live chat. That's fine, but I'm not sure whether all of them had the necessary expertise. They seemed to give standard answers which not always hit the target. Anyway, we had to leave them because we lost several days of sales as various problems were not solved and seemed to be insolvable. With Dream Hosting we really get the expert support needed. They're an excellent service… Read Full Review

“Consistent professional advice and support”

Written on: 22/11/2013

I can only express my complete satisfaction with Dream Hosting. I am basically a novice and have cause to rely heavily on the advice and support that has been forthcoming from DH staff. I admire and appreciate their endless courtesy and patience. I have had nothing but a totally professional service from their staff, and especially value their promptness. When I have been unable to perform certain operations, they have willingly come to my assistance and always seen me right. I can… Read Full Review

“Just Excellent”

Written on: 09/10/2013

I have been using Dream-Hosting for 6 years now I have hosted upwards of six different domains and never once have I experienced downtime. This is not the main reason I stay with them though...I stay because of the excellent customer service I receive. I get answers at all times of the day 24/7, usually within a few minutes. During working hours I use the live chat facility and usually have my query resolved in just a few minutes. The pricing is also very attractive, how can you get such a… Read Full Review

“Couldn't have asked for more, wish i found them sooner.”

Written on: 28/09/2013 by ryanh1980 (1 review written)

I recently signed up to Dream Hosting after being recommended by a friend. Upon signup took up their offer of the free cPanel migration from my existing host. Their support staff took care of the migration for me and everything went perfectly. It's been about a month now and i can't find fault in them, i've had 100% uptime and my site has remained faster than ever - much better than my old host where the page wouldn't load for a few seconds. The after care has also been excellent, they… Read Full Review

“Reliable, Affordable and an Honest Service”

Written on: 27/09/2013 by GuitarTabWorld (1 review written)

Have been with dream-hosting.co.uk for around 5 years now, originally because they were so cheap (£9.99 a year). Their prices have increased over the last few years (as you would expect) but I would still choose them over other available hosting companies. The product they provide has come on leaps and bounds over the years, the control panel to manage your hosting has so many bells and whistles and is always being improved. Obviously being with them so long I have experienced downtime, not… Read Full Review

“Fantastic 5* Wish had found dream hosting company sooner”

Written on: 03/07/2013 by Keyth (1 review written)

After having months of issues with daddy of all hosting companies I decided to go and switch 4 months into a 12 month paid subscription, to Dream Hosting, mainly because their servers are hosted in the UK and the response to pre-sales questions via their online chat facility was fantastic. With my current daddy of hosting company I've had several calls to the US to resolve issues that couldn't be resolved, ranging from their own servers being listed on spam servers, to very sluggish collection… Read Full Review

I've used many hosing companies before, and after using dream-hosting.co.uk for the last 2 years, it is the most reliable by far. They've recently upgraded their servers to virtual servers, and they are flat out & very reliable. Would defo recommend! I think most technical people use these guys… Read Full Review

“High on Quality, Low on Price”

Written on: 12/05/2013 by MJCOLtd (1 review written)

For reasonably priced web hosting which doesn't sting you with massive charges for basics which are sold as extras you need look no further than Dream Hosting. Their support is world class and their servers are rarely down, on those rare occasions of downtime it's always short lived. Their staff are knowledgeable and very helpful and have never failed to satisfactorily resolve a query in over 3 years. We at MJCO Limited are proud to use Dream Hosting for our own website and those of our… Read Full Review

“Excellent, friendly customer service ”

I have found DreamHosting to be a great provider. They are friendly and helpful. They always respond in a way that helps me solve my problems very quickly and they do not expect you to be an expert admin either, which is very helpful. I would be happy to recommend them to a friend… Read Full Review

“Awesome Service”

Written on: 10/02/2013 by dwstraining (1 review written)

I have used and tested many Hosts to ensure my clients are getting a dependable service and value for money. Our company has been using Dream as our primary Host of choice for over a 5 years now. They are a breath of fresh air - offer a highly competitively priced structure with a comprehensive and flexible range of packages to suit most needs, consistently reliable and with the best response from a support team who have always been professional. I have no reservation about recommending them… Read Full Review

I agree. Have two sites with dream-hosting, customer service never reply to anything. Cheap, yes. But this is a false economy in the long run.

My account with Dream-Hosting has been compromised twice and taken offline but twice has been put back within a day (although the second time, no replies were made to my ticket but they still re-activated my site). I'm hoping now they can tell me where the issues originate so I can eliminate them.

Your account was suspended as it had a functionality flaw, which was causing performance issues on the server. As is our standard practise the account is suspended immediately to avoid disruption of service to other users.

We worked with you and provided help, and gave you 4 chances to fix the issues over the course of a month, and this wasn't done. We were still happy to help you resolve the issues but it was your choice to cancel your account.

not so sir. the flaw was a DOS attack on our site, but we only found out about it when we took the site from your service and found a service where they could actually work WITH us and tell us what the problem was. DOS attacks, I am told, are very common nowadays and unless you can work with your customers to let them know what the problem is, as opposed to closing their websites down and doing nothing more, then you really dont deserve the business of customers who need to be able to rely on their ISP in any way what so ever. Is till have the emails back and forward and the information you actually gave us was Not a Damn Thing.

“Amazing service”

Written on: 14/12/2012 by HappinessBackpack.com (1 review written)

Let me just say at the outset of this review, that I am a total newcomer to technology. So setting up a website and buying hosting & domains was a huge learning curve and fear mountain for me. Dream-hosting.co.uk were so incredibly helpful and swift at getting back to me. I had no problems cancelling my first order when I did the wrong thing. Then when I had sorted myself out, they totally held my hand through the process of directing a domain I had bought from GoDaddy (not so helpful) and… Read Full Review

“Cheap and Excellent Functionality”

Not a lot to say other than singing Dream Hosting's praise, because the service speaks for itself, excellent all round, cheap (I am on the bronze package) and it has been pretty much flawless and hassle free since setup, with a back end that enables you to do many things quickly and without any fuss, the entire system from the moment I ordered has worked flawlessly and in 3 years, only one single problem has happened and that was solved within 5 minutes of the ticket being raised.

Written on: 05/12/2012 by iansal12 (1 review written)

I have been using Dream Hosting for quite a few years and NOT ONCE been disappointed with any aspect of their customer service and thats covering arounds 30 sites i host with them. From day one many years back they were always competitive, hosting up sites within a few hours and any customer tickets sent answered REALLY quickly. Since they have grown, NONE of this has changed which just proves even though they have grown, they still put the customers first. They are always courteous… Read Full Review
