Pulling a Fast one

Advantagesinexpensive, fast, excellent control panel, UKREG

Disadvantagestoo many extended downtime periods, slow tech support

"Around a year ago I decided to offer my web design clients a complete design and hosting service and Fasthosts appeared to offer an ideal solution. They offer free instant online setup, a 30 day money back trial period and the option to pay-as-you-go monthly which all helped seduce me into clicking the submit button. After having to rely on others to register domains, set up email, ftp accounts and web space it's a great feeling to do everything ..." Read review

Not suitable for commercial websites

AdvantagesUnlimited domains, file space, email & ftp accounts

DisadvantagesPoor reliability

"I have used Fasthosts to host some of my own and also customer websites for about 18-months now. Their online Control Panel which allows you to configure domains, database connections, FTP and email accounts amongst other things is a great idea and very user friendly but the service overall lacks any kind or reliability. Fasthosts target their hosting accounts at businesses and also resellers. There reseller accounts allow web designers like myself ..." Read review

Pretty good hosting

AdvantagesPowerful, as many domains/webspace/emails/ftps as you want

DisadvantagesNot the quickest, more downtime than it should have (but still not much), unfair managers.

"Despite what others have said here, fasthosts do provide quite a decent service. I am on the onld NT accounts and the power that I have is amazing. With unlimited websites and webspace the only thing you have to watch is your transfer - of which you're allowed 10GB a month - fairly generous. Admittedly they do have a few downtime problems but the FTP has been speeded up and is a lot better now and for the price it is an amazing deal. The new deal ..." Read review

Just not good enough

Advantagescheap, easy to add domians

DisadvantagesPoor service, shareware ftp server, poor availability, poor speeds

"I have been a fasthosts customer for over a year. When I started out, I thought it was great and started adding domains for myself, friends and customers. Occasional downtime wasn't a problem as none of the sites I was hosting were seriously commercial. However, a major client wanted a site and I used my reseller account at fasthosts to host it. In November 2000, the server on which my files were hosted fried. With no back up for 2 weeks. ..." Read review
