It took me some considerable time to find a way to contact you as your various FAQs etc did not help me. I am a web design and I was led to believe that it is required to have a telephone number on your website. If you have one I could not find it!!… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Service, Friendly Team and great features”

Exactly what I need to host my simple web site which holds my CV and upcoming blog area. Great service, fantastic communications; You guys always let me know if there's an issue that I need to look at or anything else to keep my site healthy. The server is kept up to date and you let me know when there are new apps or features available in the control panel. Great service on the Free pricing tier and having been with you for a while now, I have chosen to move to a paid-for plan. Keep up the… Read Full Review

“Bang for buck!”

I am VERY pleased with the service these guys provide. I initially signed up for a free account to deploy some personal projects, and found the technical support was incredible even though I was a free user. They get back to you in less than an hour, and in most cases 10 minutes. Each time my issue was resolved promptly. I'd planned to upgrade to an unlimited bandwidth account when my projects where deployed to all, but the 1/2 price offer was too good to miss out on and immediately went for… Read Full Review

5Quid consistently knock every other host i have used into a cocked hat. Their support is second to none (not that i have call to use it much). Get back to you in a jiffy and sort things out. This alone is worth the fee. But also their service represents superb value for money at a fraction of the cost of some of the more well known hosts… Read Full Review

“Good Customer Service”

Written on: 07/12/2014 by ShyannGlover302 (1 review written)

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

Whenever I needed some simple or complicated query, technical or non-tech, I typically get a quick reply, either same day or next day. Actual product (network service hosting provider) works great. Pretty much uses standard hosting product, not some confusing home made interface like go-dad-dy. UK provider for European based English webmasters. PHP MySQL MyPHPAdmin works great, although I'm just learning in. Email and FTP also pretty much standards based in CPanel, which helps because you gotta… Read Full Review

I've been hosting my websites with 5quidhost for many years now and I can't fault them at all. I've recommended them to a few of my friends and they couldn't be more impressed. On the several occasions I have messed something up in the backend of my sites and contacted customer support for help with restoring backups, the team are really patient and don't make you feel like you are an idiot (unlike other hosts I have used in the past). In my experience they have always responded to support… Read Full Review

Setting up with a host is always a learning curve but 5quid have been there every step of the way to guide me through. And unlike other hosting companies I have dealt with, they make suggestions to get my account in optimum state rather than just adequate. It appears to me they really go the extra mile - please stay that way 5quid!… Read Full Review

“Still great after 4 years”

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

I'm just a small business owner with basic IT needs and no proficiency at web design or IT admin systems. This means I can get flummoxed by things that appear quite simple to the professionals. But the support from 5quidhost is excellent. They get you submit a written request with some detail of the problem, which sometimes I can provide and sometimes I can't. But the support is very prompt, very courteous and respectful, even of my lack of knowledge. They have always solved everything… Read Full Review

“simple, good value host run by techies for techies”

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

You don't want a website builder. You don't want Drupal integration. You don't want any idiot to sell you anything. You know how to make a website and you just want somewhere to put it. That's what these guys give you. That being said, they do have a few tools installed to make your life easier, like cPanel and phpMyAdmin. Using some clever trickery, they give you almost the features of a VPS (virtual private server) with the cost of shared hosting. So any PHP you upload runs on suPHP, for… Read Full Review

Visit www.5quidhost.co.uk

Very happy with an "Everlasting", all I wanted was an off-site system under my control with adequate disk space and SSH access for DR purposes. All the other hosting companies seem to think their customers are complete idiots and dress their services up with things I don't want. Only down side was it took me a while to realise I had to contact support to get the firewall opened up for my SSH access… Read Full Review

“User Experience Needs Improvement”

Great on the whole but a few little things need attention. Only notified of expiration right as it expires. Not great if you're not around for a few days. Can't change the main domain the account is registered to. As companies grow and move so do their domains. The ability to change this is vital and can be done on other hosts… Read Full Review

Thank you for taking the time to review our service. Actually, the primary domain of an account can be changed on request - just let us know if you'd like us to do so. Our billing system sends payment reminders over a 24 day period from initial notification of payment due, until the point an account is suspended. It will also send SMS text messages where available. If you're not receiving these payment reminders (either by e-mail or SMS) please let us know.

Personally i'm quite critical of companies and services and have probably never given anyone 5 stars! (I usually save one!....just in case) But based on the service i've had from 5 Quid Host so far!.....They deserve it! This rating and review is based on the easy of use, pricing and customer care. Ease of use - Great Great Great....can't fault them. Pricing - 5 quid by name 5 quid by nature! Best 5quid i've ever spent! Customer Care - Fantastic. Basically if you've got a… Read Full Review

An excellent, friendly, transparent,flexible,no hassle service, with prompt support on the rare occasion that it is necessary. I particularly like the fast, control panel website and database backup utility, which is CONSIDERABLY faster than my previous hosting company which was not at all "Easy" and who seemed intent upon exploiting customers! It is also a bonus with 5Quidhost to have unlimited MySQL databases,websites,sub domains,FTP accounts,and unlimited bandwidth. There is nothing… Read Full Review
