Until recently I would have recommended Pickaweb to anybody, I have had reliable web hosting from the company for a couple of years now. Over the last month however I have experienced repeated problems with my website and emails being inaccessible. Each time I use the Live Chat facility and someone gets the site back up, with promises like "happy hosting from now on", only for the problem to recur. This morning I was told before I even finished typing my query that the server was down for... (read more)

Customer service is OK, but the actual server hosting is terrible if you have a larger business. We have about 10 sites and will be moving them all due to outages/downtime/dns setup mistakes ect ect. Stay away from them if you value you sanity and stress levels. (read more)

We had hosted our website with Pickaweb for four years. During this time, we had several major outages but each time Pickaweb did just enough to keep us on board. However, we had to move hosts after our annual bill went from £65 per year to £182! There was a badly worded email advising that "some" customers would experience a "small" price increase sent out which, perhaps naively, I didn't worry about. Therefore, I only realised about the massive price hike when they issued the... (read more)

Had a quick issue when setting up Budget Webhosting with Pickaweb. I had only been given a 50MB space allocation whilst the plan listed 200MB. Concerned I'd overlooked some sort of sneaky fine print I went onto their 24 hour live chat and asked the representative about it. They asked for my details and within minutes my allocation had been fixed, with an extra 50MB thrown in. Everything else so far has worked fine and is very straightforward. (read more)

I personally find that reviews which are all singing and dancing start to sound a bit hollow and tacky. No one has ever asked me to recommend a hosting operation but if they did I’d recommend Pickaweb. For me they’ve been there when I needed them and have always solved the problems in hand, no one., not even me could ask for more. (read more)

It says it all....Live Chat ! I transferred a domain from Easyspace to Pickaweb as it is sooooo easy to use and the support is phenomenal. Live chat is the way forward, UK based live chat that is, even on Sunday evening around 10pm. The support guys dont mess around. They understand your needs and sort the problem. No beating around the bush like press control alt delete and restart the computer, they know their stuff. Pickaweb is a great concept and a market leader. No 1 for me. (read more)

Live chat must be one of the best features I have used. It is far superior to having to telephone in and pay to wait for an operator to reply. With Pickaweb's live chat one can sort out a problem in real time right when one needs it sorting. The tech team appear to be right on the ball and know the subject. That having been said in the two years I have been with Pickaweb I have only needed to use the service twice!. But when things do go a little awry, its good to have the instant... (read more)

Completely rubbish web hosting service. I have used them for the past few years to host my website. I've had many issues in the past but the most recent have been the final straw. Regular server outages causing my site to go offline, emails to go missing, and ultimately me losing business and having my reputation damaged. Support is all outsourced, command of english is minimal at best, they don't seem to even understand the problem let alone be able to do anything to resolve them. This has... (read more)

The best thing I like about them is simply the 24 hour chat support. Every single time I needed their support they were ALWAYS there. True at times they have difficulty finding the source of the problem but nonetheless they reset the settings back as before that makes life simpler.

Pickaweb provides high professional service from domain registration to web hosting.
The customer service experience is superb. The staff are very helpful and always at hand to help. A major gain from Pickaweb is the free online marketing course, that, no doubt sets a "novice" on the road to online success. Since dealing with Pickaweb, there has not been any downtime to adversely affect my business. (read more)

Been with them quite a few years now.Whilst most things computer and web related seem to be maturing, & getting to be more reliable; - The opposite appears true with Pickaweb. - Dwon time seems to occur almost monthly.
It is down as I write 21:30 BST on the 18th June.
Last time they were down I submitted asupport ticket, but they never bothered to reply.
