I've been with streamline for nearly 8 years with an Un-Limited package, however over the last 2 years my subscription has raised by 50%. My site kept being moved to different server without warning, I often lost email connectivity sometimes for upto three days at a time. As for customer service, after raising tickets you can expect anything unto 72 hours for a response. In my general experience the person responding hasn't even read your ticket properly, requiring many replies to get across… Read Full Review

No down time that Im aware of, except on e-mail: I was once one whole day without being able to access my mails. Their support service is only available Monday to Friday, office hours. They are not very fast at responding and often give the impression of copying their answers from a book without reading the question properly first, hence wasting your time and theirs. Their webmail is not compatible with Firefox or Thunderbird, so you have to use IE as their technology is outdated. There is… Read Full Review

I had a simple small domain for 12 months with Streamline. Throughout this time I had no technical problems but reading reviews after I signed up I was ever so cautious looking at my bank account and anticipating sending the dreaded "please can I cancel my account" ticket. It has now been cancelled but I am still wary of what they might do to me financially. They are not to be trusted! Wish I read the reviews before I bought… Read Full Review

I would NOT recommend Streamline.net at all. I have been with them for two years and their service is poor communication and unreliable hosting service.
These are the following problems I have experienced:
1.) They respond late to your technical queries and don't offer much help when it comes to technical problems, even basic troubleshooting.
2.) As part of communicating, you are can only send up to two support tickets at a time when contacting them and this is very limited.
3.) They… Read Full Review

Hi all, I normally don't bother with writting reviews and such, but this time I feel it necessary.
I've been with Streamline.net for over 5 years I will admit for most of that time I have been happy with the service provided, but the past few months have been awful. So bad that they eclipse the past few years of good service. Slow or unresponsive MySQL servers and databases, meaning blogs go down, loss of articles or just slow load times. Absolutely awful email service (mines been down now… Read Full Review

They are okay, but there is much better out there. Please read the terms and conditions carefully as you can get caught out.
I would suggest a package that offers better costs esp. when moving to other providers. Streamline.net is problematic when it comes to moving doamins in my experience… Read Full Review

I've been a customer orf Streamline since 2005. The actual hosting service is very good and I don't think I've ever experienced any problems with downtime of my website. However, Streamline suck when it comes to customer support. They are quite ok for you to speak with a UK based operator when they are selling you something, but when it comes to suppoprt about billing or something else, they farm you off to an operator in the Phillipines. Therefore you get somebody who is difficult to… Read Full Review

Whilst day to day running of services is OK, Streamline's heavy handed and forceful way of taking money by direct debit is appalling. Change your card, transfer your hosting and don't think about the money you wasted on them… Read Full Review

Been with streamline for 3 years. No problems until moving bigger sites over and noticing they run SLOWER from streamline. Then discovered the biggest problem. EMAIL. Very bad! Despite their advertising claiming it's unlimited you ARE limited to 500 emails and 20meg!!! Upgrade for £17 PER MAILBOX and it's still only 5000 and 1gb. No other option. No good for any small/medium size business who need to function with email. Would not recommend unless you are planning not to use email and not… Read Full Review

I have been a customer of Streamline for 5 years, originally starting off with 3 sites, now having over 30. They were great to begin with, no problems, very quick at sorting minor issues and offered a fantastic price deal. Very little problem with emails being down and no problem with the sites either. That all changed a year ago. Their pricing has gone through the roof for less content and their support ticket system is dire, taking on some occasions 3 days to get back to you only to find… Read Full Review

I was with this hosting company for a number of years but their high prices and poor customer service finally lost me. It would always take them days not hours to address any problems I had and even then would rarely have fixed any issue I had. When they finally enptied my gallery without letting me know I changed to somewhere else. Before I had joined them I wish I had known how slow they were and how expensive they were compared to other hosting companies… Read Full Review

Well they have a good online knowledge base but thats about all i can say.
Most of these reviews are true.
I also signed up for three month "free" time and ended up with a 12 month contract.
Long story short, i moved away because you could not pay monthly - i believe you can now so things may be on the up.
Their reply to support questions was reasonably quick
I am starting to think all web hosts have good and bad points.
Write out what you want for definite, find a company and stick with… Read Full Review

Streamline uses fasthost to provide a service, but the quality of the service is quite poor.
I have been with them for 3 years and I have had countless problems that you would not expect from a professional company.
The costs of the services are cheap, there up time is less that 90% and the servers can be down for a few hours at a time.
The Mail service they offer is unreliable, you will find 99% of you email go to spam, they dont offer SPF records or any control over your domain name or DNS… Read Full Review

I am also with streamline.net as a business and have many problems at peak times with php files being constantly over loaded. I am now moving my website to another server. They told me to move my database to one of there other databases, but would have to do this myself as there is no tool to do this quickly, just because there database gets overloaded, I think they should streamline their clients on that database. I have also had problems with overcharging my card and had to get refunded back… Read Full Review

Streamline seem to be a good hosting package.The problems begin when you try to cancel the account. I have spent hours trying to contact them, all you get is annoying music played down the phone to you, no one ever answers.Even when you send them an email, they tell you to phone this number, its so frustrating.
I will carry on trying to cancel my account, Wish me luck.

OK I'll keep it brief - this is for the Streamline.Net Fasthosts Power User option:
.Very cheap, good value web hosting for pure HTML driven websites (i.e. not php)
.Easy to use, comprehensive control panel
.Quick to set up and manage Databases
.Easy to access stats
.Poor MySQL database access speeds for php driven websites, so look elsewhere if you have a Wordpress/Joomla site, or just about any other site that requires dynamic content hosting.
.Patchy service/uptime and speeds at… Read Full Review

www.Streamline.net Customer Service - Very Frustrating. The customer service is poor. They use a system of support tickets which when you reply put you to the bottom of the queue. The first repsonse is always - Can you explain more about the problem. Which means you go to the bottom of the que. If they tried to replicate the problem then they would see it… Read Full Review
