I was hoping for a good dedicated server for my site, but they were too expensive here. I did find that the VPS was able to meet my needs though, so I am happy with my choice. I haven't had any real i...Read Moressues with the hosting since I signed up a few years ago. My site just keeps on chugging along without concern.

Is this Extortion ?

I have been a loyal customer for well over a decade. Today namesco has frozen one of my customer accounts for 2.36GB over quota. They email a warnings, but not that they will freeze your account.
I want to stress i pay for the un...Read Morelimited storage service. Unlimited now means 5GB tops. The account is now frozen and no one can delete emails to get the service activated again, unless you pay them extra money. No more 24hour grace period. This feels like extortion.

I'm now moving all hosting services away. Be careful with this company.
There are better hosts out there that will work with you to build long term relationships, and work with you to resolve issues.

Uptime & Reliability

Good Reliable Hosting

While I did not see any real uptime guarantees in place, the reliability of the hosting does seem quite good.  When looking at social media and other webhosting sites I found that most people are quite happy with with the stability of the hosting from this company.

Features

Hosting and Much More

When looking at the hosting options provided you will see that they have a lot to choose from.  You can select either windows or Linux for the operating system.  They have shared hosting, VPS, dedicated solutions and more.  They also include one click installs of many of the most popular hosting applications.  When you look at their packages you will see that they have a lot to offer with a few small restrictions. Disk space is limited only in their entry level shared packages.  They do limit you on how many domains you can host in some packages, which is unfortunate.

In addition to the hosting you will get access to their app maker solution and SEO assistance and much more.  As a whole, you will see that they have a lot of nice features available to keep their customers very happy.

Support

Quality Technical Support

The technical support is very easy to work with.  You can contact them through the ticketing system or other options and they have a good reputation of getting back to you fast.  They do have some online documentation available, but it is somewhat limited.  Overall, however, most people will be very happy with the level of tech support they provide.

Pricing

Fairly Standard Pricing

The prices with this company are quite standard.  They start at just $3.99 per month (plus VAT) and go up from there.  There is no real great deals here, but the prices aren't out of line either.  For most people, the price won't factor in too much because it is not high enough to be a discouragement or low enough to really attract people.

Summary

Nice Overall Hosting Option

This company is a good option for people who need nice hosting in the UK or surrounding region.  They don't have too much that really stands out as great, but they do have a good overall service so most people will be very happy with them.

Pros:

  • Offer both Windows & Linux
  • Nice extra services
  • Very well-established

Cons:

  • Some limits on some packages
  • No obvious uptime guarantee
