Very Well-Established Hosting Provider
Names.co.uk has been in business for over 18 years now, and have built a good company offering high quality hosting solutions. They work hard to provide powerful, flexible web solutions with a friendly support system. They offer web hosting, website building, ecommerce and much more so that individuals or businesses can get everything they need from this one company.
While their site is a little hard to navigate at times, they do seem to provide a very nice service as a whole. Lots of options, reasonable pricing and much more make this an attractive company for anyone hosting in the UK or surrounding region.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
