“The thing I like best about 34sp web hosting is that...”

Written on: 16/12/2005 by doofus (1 review written)

The thing I like best about 34sp web hosting is that they don't hide anything from their users. If there's a problem, they'll keep you informed of the situation until it's been fixed. (Less reputable companies try to cover everything up, and only tell you about their problems if you phone their premium-rate support lines.)

Besides the usual support channels -- email (365 days a year) and phone (*not* premium rate, and they'll even call *you* if you prefer) -- they also offer IRC support, a… Read Full Review

“I've used 34sp for over 2 years... I currently have...”

Written on: 02/09/2004 by bramp (1 review written)

I've used 34sp for over 2 years... I currently have two domains and two hosting accounts purchased with them and I think they are the best hosting company I've seen.

The value for money is great, £15/year is not better than all places, but for what I get I'm happy to pay.

They do have rather limited web space, and the lack of hosted sub domains is a problem, but they are continually adding new features, and I'm sure these will change eventually.

In the 2 years that I've used them I believe… Read Full Review

“For the occasional user or hobbiest, 34sp's offering...”

Written on: 07/07/2004 by miked123 (2 reviews written)

For the occasional user or hobbiest, 34sp's offering may seem good value with many features such as mysql, php, webmail + plesk control panel as standard.
But here's a classic example of you 'get what you pay for' - server downtime of both web hosting and email is embarrassingly bad, and many inconsistent performance niggles that you'd normally perhaps blame on your isp e.g emails arriving at user 12 hours later, incoming mail bouncing or being delayed days - website offline, unfortunately are… Read Full Review

I can not share this experience. I have 3 sites (on 2 different servers) with 34sp.com for over 2 years now and there have probably been half a dozen downtimes of less than an hour each during this time.
<br>Both planned and unplanned downtimes and their status are announced immediately in their forum, which is more than most other providers offer.
<br>The uptime is claimed to be 99.9% and according to my experience it is even better than this.

I have used 34sp for a number of years now, for various websites.
<br/>
<br/>They used to be a great cheap host with few problems.
<br/>
<br/>This is definitley not the case anymore. I totally agree with these comments about not even admitting the server is down - this has happened to me at least 5 times.
<br/>
<br/>Now, I host just a blog with them, which now goes down pretty much every Sunday, and today is no exception. I am still waiting for a response as I look at my broken website.
<br/>
<br/>Really so disappointing after how great they were.
<br/>
<br/>They are utter crap now - really don't bother unless you like downtime.

I don't have any commercial sites but they are not just for fun either and so I prefer a good uptime as well.
<br>Having said this, I am aware that one or two of their older servers had more problems than others in the past, but I don't think they will put new customers on these servers anyway (and apparently you changed to a different server now as well). Of course this will be of little consolation to you, but from what you are saying it appears actually that your server has become the victim of a spam attack (I am aware that this has indeed be a repeated problem with a few of their servers) and there is obviously no way to totally prevent this. To a certain degree one just has to live with these drawbacks of shared hosting. The alternative would be to rent your own server (an option which 34sp.com is offering as well by the way), but I wonder if the added cost might not be more than the loss of income through the occasional outage.
<br>
<br>I can only repeat that, apart from a couple of minor problems, I have been very happy with 34sp.com, and there are in my opinion few (if any) providers who offer better value for money for small websites (for larger websites with a lot of traffic and additional features there may be better offers from other providers due to their pricing scheme).

Yes, but are your sites/email sufficiently busy 24/7 that unannounced outages and problems are noticed? Because the outages and server problems I mention were never flagged on their forum, in fact it was only after numerous complaints from users they acknowledged the problem. Also, the glitches were never resolved fully for us, and I insisted on a moving my account to another server. In the fortnight it took to try to get this sorted, we lost huges amount of trade and customer goodwill.
