Have you ever looked at a website and been impressed? Have you ever had an idea for a website but didn't know where to start? Have you ever looked at a website and thought 'I could do better than that?' Do you want a source to get information to a wide audience or maybe sell something? That was...

Poor 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...

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...

“Pulling a Fast one”

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...

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...

I decided to move to Fasthosts after finding Lycos such a disgusting service, assuming of course that a UK based company may be a little better to deal with. The packages seem reasonable, although I am not sure whether you can bolt multiple domains onto one package or not (I never actually got...

“Not for the home user”

published 14/12/2000

Banner free, combined domain and hosting packages

problems with FTP, e-mail settings deleted

I originally wrote this op back in December 2000 when I had just taken out hosting with fasthosts.co.uk. The fact that I am still using fasthosts for my hosting needs some three and a half years later has got to be a sign that I am relatively happy with the experience. I'll do a comparative test...

I went with Fasthosts because they came highly recommended by a trusted friend. Initially I thought they were quite expensive compared to other hosting companies - but they were very helpful and in the beginning; they were very reliable. After a few months Fasthosts change their pricing structure...

demonstrate just how bad customer service can be

everything else

I have been involved in web hosting for over 10 years now and have bought from all the top names.... but never been so badly treated or shocked at basic problems as with fasthosts... Hosted a business website with fasthosts for 5 months, in which time fasthosts seemed to treat my business as an...

“As fast as they say”

published 14/12/2000

Reasonable price, wide range of free services

upto 24 hours to activate the service

I had previously used easyspace for domain registration and then getting cloaked web redirection for the various websites that I run, and tried fasthosts.co.uk out following a recommendation from a friend. Whilst they are very strict on bandwidth use, and therefore this is not an entertainable...

price, service, hosting

They have absolutely no support whatsoever, and are ridiculously expensive, especially considering how cheap and good US hosting services are. Anything you ask (even if it's their fault) and they will charge £70 on your credit card immediately. Without doing any work. Yes. That's right. It's...

This review is based Fasthosts dedicated servers. The other hosting services they offer is generally ok. However it seems that they cannot cope with the customer support demand in an efficient and quick manner. Fasthosts dedicated servers offer very poor support for any physical hands on work to...

published 15/07/2007

I have had a reseller account for 4 years and dedicated server account for 1 year. On the reseller account they constantly charge me double. The techincal support is lousy the worst I have come across. Still awaiting a fried dedicated server to come online after a week! Despite their adverts they do not offer 24/7 support. I am going to quickly move my accounts elsewhere.
