Have been with Streamline (UK) since almost 2 years. Was a good deal, £100 per year for 10 sites. I had very little problems, and when something was not right, they responded ok to the tickets.
But now they have suddenly raised their rates steeply by 60%, and so I am looking for alternatives. While doing this, I came across these recent very bad reviews. Fortunately I am not using their email a lot, all I have in those accounts are auto-forwarders to other email accounts, and that worked so… Read Full Review

Read the reviews on this website about Streamline.net and have to say was nodding my head about just how frustrating it is that our emails with Streamline don't work. But before I started my own personal rant on behalf of my business and the 10 others we host email accounts and webs for, I thought I would pick up the phone and see for myself what could be done.
Well, they answered the phone - yes from the main number on the website, they took the call within 8 rings, and this was a 1:30pm… Read Full Review

Servers in EU are stable to 99.9% - No questions asked.
They spam you if your credit card expires.
Customer support- must be children learning IT. No proper feedback or proper solutions. And recently this development.
Hello Europe. Just wanted to publicly notify everybody that bought the power users package before August 2010 (which does not exist any more due to restructuring) You are eligible to register Aliases to sub domains. This changed recently and the function was removed without any… Read Full Review

I took the 3 months trial with Streamline.net which for my needs the service that was offered was ideal and i am reasonably pleased with the Ultimate package. What i was disappointed about was the way in which they make charges without email confirmation (everything is done in the control panel). I used the 3months trial, and then on the renewal date without any confirmation email, only an invoice I discovered in the control panel - 117.48 pounds was taken from my account (my own fault however… Read Full Review

I have used Streamline for over 3 years now and had no problems at all initially. Using a Windows (shared) server and html based web pages, I built myself a website... currently that site has over 4.5 GB of data on it (I use it as a fast download server for my game servers which are hosted on my home pc sot there are tons of maps up there). Their customer support was excellent when I had silly questions - always answered very quickly.
The problems began in July 2008 when I added a few… Read Full Review

I've used Streamline for several years. Overall they've been fine. Technical support is adequate and fairly quick to respond.
There a few niggles that really shouldn't exist. They don't support Cname redirects at all and a few other installations such as wordpress have required more fiddling than is necessary as there's no cpanel or fantastico. I've had to delete the htaccess file to get a forum to work.
Now I've upped my hosting with more programs I'll probably be looking elsewhere, but if… Read Full Review

Streamline.Net has great support. Tickets answered promptly and without the tech jargon which is helpful if your not web savvy.
Been using Streamline for a couple of years now to run a couple of busy forums and apart from the smtp server being down a few times for a couple of hours which has confused the heck out of my forum users as some of the forum functions don't work properly without it, then I have to say I've been quite happy with the overall service.
Apparently, if any of my members… Read Full Review

Streamline.net have a very good attractive website. Hosting Plans are competitively priced, and the Support from the Technical Team and Sales Team is fast and knowledgeable.
Very knowledgeable staff.
Good control panel to access site settings etc.
Online administration control panel is quite busy, but very effective and reliable.
Webmail colour scheme is not ideal… Read Full Review

Streamline.Net service's not bad. fast access speed within the uk but quite slow from the far east. support staff quite helpful and it's got a very good support website. pricewise, it's NOT cheap. extra features such as password protection, mysql web server, access to domain panel all require an upgrade to power user or extra charge every year. among the web hosting companies, i count streamline.net a pretty good one, though there're clearly areas for improvement… Read Full Review

I have been with streamline for around 2 years now and they have been good. The customer service is ok for support queries etc. They normally get back to you within 24hours.
However. Im thinking of leaving them.
I have a reseller package and I am using 4 sites out of the 10 allowed and its really quite slow. Im sure it would be fine for static HTML pages but when you incorporate CMS, ecommerse and multiple databases per site into the mix it slows down quite alot… Read Full Review

www.Streamline.net is cheap, helpful, fairly good features. I don't think the home package supports php, or if it does its hard to get into. The speed when loading media such as video/ flash is incredibly slow. Good for starters out there. A big no no for anybody with videos, flash games etc as its very slow loading these things… Read Full Review

I would use Streamline only for domain parking, because their hosting is not capable of very much, and their support team have strict policies about what they can and cannot do. They cannot do a lot of things… Read Full Review

Streamline is very easy to set up with a good interface and is very reliable.
However with the Power User package and above you are promised 10 subdomains but there are no instructions in how to set them up. Support tickets to the tech team ewre for me left unanswered even though they said they would reply within 24 hours.
In a nutshell, easy to set up and use, bad on communication… Read Full Review

You have no control over your domains. The domains are registered with Tucows and they didnt even bother to give me a username/password to administer the domain.

So their hosting systems work well, their FTP interface is a dream come true, and admin control panels are very good and easy to use.
BUT.... if you have issues you have to raise a ticket, OK, but their responses often consist of 1 sentence so it takes several frustrating 'ping pong' tickets to get the problem understood and fixed in my experience.
I really think, and have suggested that they improve this, and provide a sales contact line (even that's via a ticket)… Read Full Review

I've been with these guys before in 2005. I then decided after reading all the negative reviews here not to migrate my main website from Verio to Streamlinenet. I went to Easyspace instead. Everything ok here thankfully. Anyway, once again I've decided to purchase a cheap supplementary website. I scoured all the UK and USA and even French deals. Streamlinenet offered the most for the least and when I saw their new website and facilities I was most impressed. I've only paid them for one year… Read Full Review
