“Responsive and Excellent Service”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by PTCS (1 review written)

I have only had to ask for support a couple of times, as the on line guidance is easy to follow even for an IT illiterate, but have always received a swift and very helpful response. Phones are answered quickly and the response to my on line query was almost immediate. Contrasts with the lack of support from some other companies that I have used… Read Full Review

“namesco technical support”

Written on: 17/07/2014

With so many people self-publishing and creating their own blogs, technical support is a vital aspect of being able to succeed. Few people have enough depth of knowledge to be able to set up, operate, customize and maintain their own website. This is especially the case for personal bloggers and small business owners. As a small business owner with a number of websites, I wanted a hosting service that would be responsive and simple in its explanations and this is exactly what I got with… Read Full Review

“Used names.co.uk to register our domain and used them...”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by Abernathyct53 (1 review written)

Used names.co.uk to register our domain and used them for 2-years for this purpose, we informed them that we would be renewing for a third year, but would not make payment until we returned from holiday. Was told by their staff we had until the 1st of the following month to make payment, which was duly done on our part. Names took our payment, gave us confirmation domain was registered for another year, but then emailed us a few hours later to tell us our Domain was in quarantine and required a… Read Full Review

“Very helpful”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by MalakiVega (1 review written)

I had an issue where my email address was logging me out on my Samsung phone. I called up and not only did a helpful staff member reset my password, he also updated it on my iPad, helped me upgrade my subscription to what I needed, and he helped set up the email address on my computer which I could never work out before. I was on the phone for over an hour, but in the whole time his patience never wore thin and he was extremely helpful… Read Full Review

“Always Helpful, Always Polite & Fast To Respond”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by Damonj1947 (1 review written)

What more can I say? These guys are always really helpful, they are never condescending (even to non technical people like me) and the response is always fast.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to write a review as I've been a customer for years and they've never let me down on anything. Sitemaker is easy to use, easy to customise and makes my website look pro.

Great for start ups :-)… Read Full Review

Johnminogue's Response to Brandmy's Review

Written on: 22/07/2014

REALLY? I loged a call via the ticketing system. 3 days later nothing. Only when I chased I got a response that pointed me to a guide. I had already looked at these. The call was them closed. I had to reopen it.

Tried calling the support line and almost passed out with dehydration and starvation waiting for some body to answer the phone. very disappointed so far.

“Domain Registration”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by JaniyaButcher (1 review written)

One of the worst registration companies, with this company you literally get what you pay for which is not much. DNS management is terrible, the control panel is right out of a kids HTML lesson and it takes a age to change nameservers compared with the big boys (Heart Internet, Fasthosts, 1and1 and 123-reg) If you are serious about domain management do not go with names.co.uk… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2014

Hi,

I am very sorry that you feel that way as the majority of our customers do like our Online Control Panel, and the DNS management page.

Changing nameservers on a domain does rely on DNS propagation, regardless of who you change them with, so I can only think that the change you made through us took more time to propagate. Propagation is something we advise about when customers make a DNS change.

Again I am sorry you feel this way, in future I recommend contacting our Support team with any issues you have, we can be contacted by Phone, Online enquiry, Live Chat, Facebook, or Twitter.

Thanks

Last week need to speak with Tech Support Automated message says " we are experiencing a higher than expected volume of calls" this message has been on their systems for years now. I suspect lack of staff ( cost cutting ) but its their customers who suffer . I was on hold for 30 minutes but had to hang up as i had to get on with my work.. This is appalling service… Read Full Review
