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

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

Good Points
Customer-oriented staff, quick friendly support, low entry price, open attitude.

Bad Points
If you need lots of disk space and/or bandwidth, you might get a better deal elsewhere.

General Comments
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 lively forum where staff and other users are willing to answer any queries.

The £15-a-year entry-level package is great value, but they have fixed charges for additional disk space and bandwidth, which become increasingly uncompetitive the more you need. Bandwidth isn't capped, so your site will still remain active if you exceed your allowance; you just have to pay an additional £1.50 per excess GB. Overall I'd say this is the ideal start-up host for a new website.

Business packages with guaranteed up-time, 500MB disk space and 10GB monthly bandwidth allowance start at a tenner a month.
