Ruined by a takeover

I have been with Daily forever - or so it seems
Services always available, helpdesk effective - a little slow sometimes but helpful and effective
Mail servers always up
And since the takeover - rubbish. Slower and now i cant even send mail

Marc Wilson,
Can't argue with that assessment.

Mail doesn't seem to work at the moment. Mails hosted on there seem to have been lost; nothing updated since Dec 2019

I have been with Daily for over 10 years, great company no hassle.
Then comes the buy over ,Paragon Internet Group now Sites going down and no support to get things sorted.
Avoid them if you want to keep your services running.

Daily.co.uk gone downhill since takeover

1.0
Daily.co.uk once was good however Paragon Internet have taken them over and they are now terrible.

Tried to renewal my domain online where the control panel advertised the price at £10.99+vat for a single year, paid and was iss...Read Moreued an invoice stating renewal for domain name and the price. The website however showed an error and said something failed, but your payment was successful DO NOT REPEAT PAYMENT please contact support.

Support come back a while late and say it's too late to renew for £10.99+vat and it's now £90+vat, I decline and ask for a refund.

Daily.co.uk (T/A Paragon Internet Group Ltd) come back to me and refuse to issue a refund for the missold renewal/legal invoice which shows clearly the description and price for what I have paid yet will not refund it when they didn't renew it.

The details are now in the hands of Slough Trading Standards, unfortunately as most customers won't find this review until it's too late as they use a generic name rather than Paragon Internet to trade online.

We have been with Daily for many years and my wifes previous company before that. They hosted our website and emails very well, no complaints, until a year or so ago. Our website was hacked and replaced with something else...this ...Read Morewas overcome by them loading a 30 day old website. Then we started to get over 500 'return to sender' emails EVERY DAY!. Daily did actually respond to one of their tickets and said (I couldn't believe it) 'There is nothing we can do about those type of emails. What are they being paid for? Anyway, it got worse, up to 700 a day, each one having to be deleted and the list gone through to see if any were legitimate emails for our business. That has been going on for over a month, very frustrating. Then came the hammer blow. Now we cannot access our email account at all as every time we attempt to sign in we get 'Unknown user & Password''. I have tried to contact daily via another email address of ours and raised the points but now they don't even get back. No comments, no excuses. So, 10 years of trading, email addresses (cant access our contacts lists) and everything else gone. I do not know what else to say except please do not let this happen to you. Stay well away from this company.Less

Overview

Web Hosting at a Low Price but Lacking Depth

Daily Internet offer a flexible hosting solution that is geared more towards a UK based audience, with Linux and Windows hosting available you will be able to sift through the various plans on offer to pick  one to suit you. Prices for each of the plans are in-line with most other hosting companies but buyer beware, because you will find that most of the cheaper plans are limited in what they offer.

They do offer extra services in addition to Web Hosting, such as SSL and Domain registration.

Why Choose Daily Hosting?

  • Very low prices for shared hosting
  • CPanel for VPS solutions
  • Ideal for UK based customers
  • Adwords credits on all plans

Want to know if Daily Hosting is right for you?

Reliability

Not Enough Information on Uptime and Servers

A real let down comes in the reliability area because there is just no mention of the kind of uptime you will receive with your hosting plan, and there is no mention of data centres or monitoring/security measures.

They do have a system status page, however, this page is only updated if there is a network issue. Looking around the Internet and checking out customer feedback on Daily.co.uk generally pins there uptime 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Backups are available but these come as an additional cost for the user depending on whether you want weekly or daily backups.

Features

Seem to Offer You The World, But Features Are Sparse

Even though you think you are getting a good deal with the starter plan, it doesn’t come with a great deal of flexibility or features, but what would you expect for £1.74 per month? There are no databases supported with this plan and only 5GB of web space available to play with.

If you upgrade to the Home pro solution then you find plenty of more benefits, such as a free domain name, free apps and up to 20 MYSQL databases. This still leaves it out in the cold compared to similar prices plans on other hosting providers who offer plenty of unlimited options. You can’t help but feel capped and limited with Daily.co.uk

Support

Great For UK Support, Not so Great For Anywhere Else

A UK telephone number and email address are available for you to call but be wary that the number isn’t a free phone number and will cost you. If you are calling from anywhere outside the UK then to be honest I would suggest emailing instead as the cost will mount up for you.

A Knowledge base is present and offers some really great and comprehensive guides on how to get the best from your hosting and website.  They are also present on Facebook and Twitter but haven’t really got to grips with how it should be used so you will be lucky to get responses over there.

  • Good Knowledge Base
  • Email Support
  • No Live Chat
  • Poor Support Outside UK
  • Telephone Number is Not Free
  • Only Operate on Office Hours
  • Social Media Presence but One Way Flow

Pricing

Some of The Lowest Prices For Shared Hosting

The cost of the starter plan is unbelievable, at just £1.74 per month whilst the Wordpress Hosting and Home Pro Hosting options are offered at a low price of £3.49 per month. Even the top end package, Ultimate Solution comes in at just £4.19 which makes Daily.co.uk one of the cheapest out there.

Usually you will find that Windows Hosting is slightly more expensive that Linux, but Daily.co.uk group them both together for the same monthly price. All plan are offered with an unmetered monthly data transfer rate, along with a free Google Adwords voucher to kick-start your marketing efforts.

User-Friendly

CPanel Available on VPS, WebsitePanel on Shared Hosting

The ever reliable and user-friendly CPanel software comes installed on all of the VPS packages that Daily.co.uk offer, so those who have experience with CPanel will get along well with this and for those who haven’t, it’s a piece of cake to pickup.

Unfortunately those who take out the shared hosting option will be left with a lesser-known and lesser-used control panel called WebsitePanel, which will take some getting used to.

The Daily.co.uk website offers good usability with no clutter and simple straight forward plans, prices and features. The site is a pleasure to use and has a positive feel to it.

Summary

The Ideal Host For Individuals and Those With Budgets

Daily.co.uk is the ideal hosting solution if you want a cheap host and aren’t too fussed about advanced features and tools. Don’t expect innovation or ground-breaking services, and if you need a stronger support area it would be wise to look elsewhere for hosting. Likewise, if you need stronger features and more unlimited options, it would be best to find another solution.

Generally, reviews across the net label Dialy.co.uk as an average company, they aren’t shocking but they aren’t fantastic either. A great way for beginners to get a site hosted for a small price.

Pros

  • Very good prices
  • Adwords credits when signing up to any plan
  • Great for those based in the UK

Cons

  • Poor support
  • CPanel only with VPS
  • Lack of Features and Tools
  • No information on reliability and uptime
  • Backups charged extra
