Our previous hosting company had become unreliable and I searched about for a new provider which offered good value. In particular, I was looking for a reliable service but, knowing that our bandwidth requirement is quite low, didn’t want to sign up to anything fancy or expensive.
5quidhost’s Free Hosting UK package fitted the bill and allowed me to trial the service. To date, I am very pleased. The instructions provided for setting up the account and pointing our domain name to the website were very good and, despite being relatively ignorant of I.T., I managed fine with a bit of patience.
Our site is to publicise a small, specialist vocal group called Cantiones Sacrae which is based in Dundee. Details at www.cantiones.net
It may well be that I will upgrade to a Level 1 package in due course but it has been really useful to be able to gauge how well the hosting works before committing financially.
I know I went for the free service but the paid for service would only be the same with higher bandwdith.
I really dont want to have to change my name servers to use the service. A simple web record change would do. Not going to carry on using it
Great hosting service and fast support - I've not needed help very often but whenever I have they've always been quick and efficient at dealing with my enquiries. Can't recommend them highly enough!
Good, Honest, Reliable, Trustworthy, Solid, Value For Money ... I have hosted with 5Quid on and off for the last few years on both their free and paid for hosting packages and I cannot praise them enough. The service is outstanding the support is as good as it gets.... seriously these guys have got it nailed... look no further.... you are in safe hands.
Having moved from a previous hosting company (Bluevoda- don't touch with a barge pole!) I have experienced excellent hosting with very minor if any issues. The pricing is also excellent so I would recommend the company to anyone.
Print out the confirmation email, then follow the details step by step, and you can't go wrong.
Very fast set-up, the getting started guide has been updated to make it easier to understand, and within minutes your web site is on the internet.
How they do all this all for free, is unbelievable in todays world.
If or when you exceed your Bandwidth, nice little email to warn you, not just your site taken down.
I managed to win free hosting with 5quidhost. I received immediate replies from them when I signed up. So far all support has been brilliant and I would recommend this company to a friend.
I've just started to try the free service offered and so far it's performed extremely well. Good amount of space, bandwidth and functional elements, such as PHP and MySQL DB. I'll continue to use and assess again in due course.
5quidhost.co.uk is excellent value for money. Unlike any other hosts they are very generous, not only do they provide true free hosting but recently they gave away FREE for life hosting accounts at Halloween on all levels. As a result I have got a FREE account on their Turbo+ plan which has 500MB disk space, UNLIMITED e-mail Accounts, UNLIMITED MySQL databases, UNLIMITED websites, UNLIMITED subdomains, UNLIMITED FTP, Accounts, UNLIMITED Bandwidth - all this in one package - UNLIMITED and FREE for life - WOW! what more can you ask for ?! this IS truly an excellent service that you dont get with any other host not even once in a life time. This is one of the things which makes 5quidhost outstanding from everyone else.
...But not only free give aways, most of their hosting accounts are much better than others in terms of competitiveness because they all have unlimited features, you just have to choose how much disk space you need and that is very good. This shows their hosting accounts are better than others because they are well structured; there are different plans on different levels for different needs/requirements which means they provide a genuine, decent and prime service and not everyone from all over the world are crammed on to a unlimited server with no end in sight on feautures.
Keep up the excellent work ;-)
I have used 5 quid host for years. Rarely a problem and the system they use just 'works'.
I have used various platforms from Dreamweaver , to iWeb and now have installed from their system Joomla. Just one of the many open source products they offer and support. Compare it with a more expensive 'ONE' (you can guess who I mean) and you will see the difference in price. In fact there is little difference in the products they offer. Whenever I have contacted them to resolve something they have usually sorted it within the hour. You do need to be savvy to get the best from the products.
I have used your serrvices before and both times your service can not be faulted.
Your customer service is always extremely helpful.
Please keep the good work up.

In every aspect this is the best hosting company I have used. Having tried many others in the past 20+ years 5QuidHost exceed all expectations: speed, uptime, support, ease of use. Even at the weekend they are quick to respond and solve issues. Don't go anywhere else - these people are the best.
I signed up for a free package with the intention of upgrading when I was sure everything worked. Late on Sunday night had problems and emailed 5quidhost thinking I might get a reply on Monday if I was lucky. Five minutes later I got a reply asking for more information and shortly after that (at quarter last midnight!!) I got another email to say I had set the permissions wrongly and they had fixed it for me. Very impressed.
I was really interested in buying hosting from 5quid but wanted to set up my site as I liked it before committing to purchase, speed was excellent, stability of connection excellent but my bandwidth was soon swallowed up and I felt I hadnt been able to fully try out all the features. Sadly I had to transfer my site back to my previous host temporarily as my site was inaccessible due to insufficient bandwidth. So for now I will get my site sorted and may well give 5quid another go if they up their storage and bandwidth. Not many other hosts restrict bandwidth to such a low limit. this does not give you chance to really try before you buy .
I've only been using 5quidhost for a few weeks, but am very impressed with the quality of service received. When a small query arose, I received a lightning-fast reply, and the issue was quickly sorted. My WordPress site is now up and running successfully. It's still early days, but based on my experience to date I would definitely use 5quidhost again in future, and am happy to recommend their service to others.
I wanted a host that was good value and yet didn't compromise on quality.
Having chosen to go the WordPress route I needed a host that would support its features and give me the flexibility to configure things exactly as I want. The information they supplied me on how to set things up was clear and comprehensive and so far all has gone smoothly.
The tools in the control panel give me a range of options as to how I can configure email, subdomains and much more. Also, while I'm getting to grips with WordPress the free low usage option is ideal.
Can't complain for free at all (although there's plenty that would - they do need to get out more!) but nice to find free hosting from a UK company that comes across truly genuine, rather than the faceless free hosting sites plastered all over the place.
Hassle free, great online knowledge base that got me out of a sticky spot.
When I need more space I'll certainly consider upgrading to the paid for packages.
I have found 5quidhost to be the most reliable hosting service I have used. Knowledge and ability of the technical staff is second to none and I have had no problems with down time or email failure. All at a great price!
Have recommended to friends before, would do same again.
I needed to create a wordpress site and had a couple fo questions. I was able to put my questions as part of the order and a support rep answered them very quickly. Setup was immediate and installing wordpress onto the FREE host was quick and easy.
To be hones,t it worked like a dream. So much so I transferred another Wordpress blog site I had from a paid host to this another free account with 5quid host.
Great deal if you want to host simple blogging sites for personal use. Not tried for larger more customised solutions, but I cannot see how that would pose too much of an issue.
Fantastic support and help even before I puchased a service, I woul recomend them 100%
I've tried a number of hosting providers and only wishes I'd found 5Quid host first and saved myself the bother. No more holding for hours on some crackly line to the Phillipines or wasted time spent with incompetent customer support. Their uptime is flawless, competent customer support and they get stuff done really quickly. And yes, they make back-ups of your site and will roll your site back if you have a problem with it and instead of suspending your entire online presence if you get a virus, they quarantine it and let you know which files and directories are suspect. An really terrific service. Thank You.
Prompt, friendly support & service. They even have a free hosting option, from which you can run a small site and e.g. test the water, whether for traffic or for (like me) to see whether you can actually put up a site that actually works!
I like 5quidhost, I also run a reseller option through them, and on that score, I can happily say - I don't know exactly how good to rate them, as there have been no problems to assess them on.... What more can you ask for? Totally opposite to MS Word 2013, which doesn't do what I want and has an opaques mind of its own.
