The cheapest offers can be seen in the table above.

The company offers a range of services, mainly for individuals and small companies, to run websites and blogs for various purposes.

They also offer:

  • WordPress hosting,
  • Website builder,
  • Domain name services,
  • and email hosting.

On the whole, the company receives positive feedback.

However, some users have expressed serious concerns, as they say, they were forced to use the phone, as live chats were not working and they could not raise a ticket. Some even said they had gotten scammed, as their personal data had gotten out into the open somehow.


Support

Instant Technical Live Support: No

As far as we tried to reach their support, we were also disappointed by the absence of 24/7 live chat.

Only available times to contact it are weekdays 9am-7pm and weekends 9am-4.30pm (GMT, we suppose). Which is not very convenient if you are not somewhere near the UK.

Report for 2018

  • By the end of the year, the company got a very low rating with us – 2.5 HRank (the 234th position) in 2018.
  • Its overall performance left much to be desired, as they have several downtime cases (up to 92% in September 2018), and its response time from the domains on Shared IPs was slower than average – around 1,500ms from August to December 2018.
  • Its number of Shared IPs dropped twice since July 2018 and the number of domains became more than ten times smaller.
  • It is hard to say whether websites were leaving because of the performance issues only or there were other reasons involved.
