Unprofessional incompetent morons

I have been with Easily for over on 16 years. I have no idea whats happened to them but I am seeking to move away from them.

Because they don't know what they're doing they have zero reliability. Pricing is cheap but there is cheaper out there. How can it be user-friendly when it don't work?.Support just pass you on to another agent. if the features worked they would have some. but it don't so they haven't.

They now suck - utterly

Just avoid.
Just use someone else.
After using Easily for 15 years for numerous domains, they are now quite simply unusable.
Buy the domain name - easy.
Setting it up to point to the website. Impossible.

Renewing Domain Names

So far in the last two years Easily has debited my Bank Account for Domain names we did not request to be renewed ..we had even turned the Auto Re-New button to off on their web site still didnt stop them charging for renewal.. An...Read Mored now they have barred us renewing two names we actually need ( One was not due for renewal for three days and the other was one day over the renewal date ....this particular name is in use daily I have over the last 6 or 7 days days sent numerous emails and made two calls to easily in Canada I beleive?
No response from my emails and Easily Support are unable to help and advise you must speak to billing... who do not reply to emails and you can not call them directly

Massively downhill since the takeover

The web site is harder to navigate. Some services don't seem to accessible (mail forwarding). We tried to register some CNAME information against one domain and it hasn't made it through to the DNS Lookup tools. The support servic...Read Moree we have received has been lazy, incompetent and patronising. We have around 15 domain names registered here and, as they expire, we'll be migrating them to another service provider. Very, very disappointing. We don't use any hosting services with Easily. I dread to think what that would be like.Less
Soons
Soons,
I, also, am massively disappointed with what Easily has become. Been with the company for @20 years. The latest happening is that @£30 was taken out of my bank account by Easily on the basis of one of my (3) domain names was due f...Read Moreor renewal. That particular domain name is not due for renewal until May 2022! I, immediately, had my bank stop any-and-all payment requests from Easily. I asked Easily to return that money and have heard nothing back from anyone there. Easily first claimed that the money taken was for hosting the website for that domain name. I pointed out to them that there is NO website for that domain name. It was in the wake of that that Easily claimed the money was for the domain name renewal which, to reiterate, was not due until May 2022.Less

Totally unsatisfactory customer support

1.0
I didn't realise that Easily had been taken over. I have telephoned them twice about an error with a domain showing as expired even though it isn't. They never call back or email. The problem is unresolved. They appear not to give a damn about customers who have been with them for decades

Avoid!! Autorenewals with no warning breach T&Cs!

1.0
I've been a customer of Easily for 17 years with no problems until now. Like many others I've been charged for a 5-year auto-renew for 2 domains which I did not authorise or want. I have contacted Easily 7 times for a refund which...Read More they promised in January and have not delivered. Billing never respond at all and Domain Services are unable to help. Has anyone here had any luck getting a refund? Paypal have denied my claims and the ian.patten@netnames email address is no longer active. Easily have breached their T&Cs by charging for autorenew with no warning but I can't find a way to get the refund of £190 I am owed. Currently transferring my other domains away ASAP! Score should be 0/10!
Update 28th March - I contacted my card company to initiate a chargeback request, based on Easily not sending out a renewal reminder 75 days before renewal as per their T&Cs and received a full refund the next day. Not sure if this was because of the credit card co. or Easily Billing finally getting back to me after 10 weeks but am just glad to get the £190 back.

Terry,
I've got the exact same problem, but I can't seem to change my website over to another host. I can't change or touch my website, yet Easily just took £238 out of my account. I have also emailed and phoned them, but no one has got back to me and no refund has been given.

Debbie Wilson,
Terry, I have just been refunded by Easily after months of trying. I had to contact my credit card in the end and they initiated a chargeback because Easily had renewed my domains without the required advance warning (see their te...Read Morerms & conditions on their website). Meanwhile I went to Nominet directly to get my domain hosting transferred away to another provider. It cost £10 for two .co.uk domains to be transferred out but it is done swiftly with no fuss and without any input from Easily. Easily's customer services gave me the runaround for months with contradicting answers and weeks with no reply. Good luck.Less

Hi
They keep auto renewing everything they can when we never authorised any renewals. Prior to a few years ago they were easy to contact and always gave us the option of renewing.

Ray Vyse,
I need advice David. They took fees for moving my sites to their portal - without informing me or asking me. Paypal say it was not unauthorised. Communication is so difficult. What to do, who to complain to?

All I wanted was my emails to redirect from my domain to my Hotmail account and a redirect from domain to my Facebook page. Should have be very easy to do.
However was it? Absolutely impossible. Emailed Easily about 20 times to s...Read Moreort the issue, they either didn't respond or didn't help. My emails and website has been down now for about 4months. Decided enough was enough and left to other provider "Fasthosts" if your wondering. As soon as domain transfered over, had access to my emails straight away and domain forwarding worked.
Asked Easily for a refund as I didn't get what paid for. Advised to contact their billing team. Have now emailed them 5 times without even an acknowledgement
Taking complaint up with Nominet now.
I would definitely avoid this company. Go elsewhere, would recommend either Fasthosts or one.com

1 star as Zero isn't an option.

Expert Overview

Hosting focused specifically on entry level sites

Easily is a UK based web hosting company that is really focused on providing entry level hosting services to their more than 100,000 customers.  They don't have any advanced hosting options such as VPS or dedicated, which can be limiting in some cases.  The shared hosting options, however, are all well maintained and will provide most people with everything they need for a personal or small business website.

They have both Windows and Linux servers available in their shared packages, and they also offer affordable domain names for purchase.

Some larger companies host their UK versions of websites with Easily, including Virgin Media and Tesco.  This shows that even with just shared hosting, you can have some very nice sites that load quickly and reliably.

Uptime & Reliability

Very reliable for a shared hosting company

The company operates their servers out of a data center in London that has full redundancy built right in for network connections and power.  This helps to minimize the possibility of outages caused by facility failure.  They also avoid overloading their servers, which is a common cause of site downtime with most shared hosting packages.

That being said, they don't seem to have any any uptime guarantees or SLAs.  Looking through what people have said about the company on social media and forums, it seems that they have a nice, reliable service with few problems.

Features

Basic hosting services with some premium add-ons avaialble

Most people will take advantage of just the normal shared hosting options that they provide.  Each of their packages is setup to include everything that most sites will need.  If you need help with the creation of your actual site, you can use their advanced website builders, which are available for purchase at 50 and 150 Euros, depending on the requirements of your site.

 

Support

Limited live support

Live support is available through a toll free number, but only Monday - Friday 9AM-5:30PM.  You can contact them through email or a problem reporting system anytime and they will normally help you quite quickly.

They also have a number of well written how-to guides that will help you to get any issues you're having resolved on your own.

Pricing

Standard pricing for shared hosting

The pricing is fairly standard, or perhaps a little lower than what most people would expect. They really push customers to go with the annual payment arrangements, which is still affordable for most people.

As long as you don't buy any of the extras that are available, the pricing on this hosting is fair and affordable.  The extras that you can purchase can add up, but you do get what you pay for.

Summary

Good entry level hosting options

If you're looking to host a small to medium sized site in the UK, this is a great option.  The pricing is fair, the support is helpful, and the features that you need are typically all included.  Overall, there is little to complain about with this company, even though there really isn't too much that helps to set it apart from the competition either.

Pros:

  • Everything you need is included
  • Above average reliability for a shared hosting company
  • Linux and Windows servers available
  • London based data center

Cons:

  • No room to grow beyond shared hosting
  • Website builder costs extra
