Please avoid

Service used: Shared - Starter
you can't cancel payments, I transferred my domain away but they still charged even after switching off auto renew. I don't know how to stop them taking money on the next renewal. They are one to avoid, pretty much a scam. NO REFUNDS policy.

Service used: Shared - Professional
Shocking service. I went on their website and cancelled all renewals. I checked twice and received confirmation that I had done.

However they still took the money. I contacted them and he said “No nothing I can do it’s been ren...Read More

absolute cowboys

Service used: Shared - Platinum
i was with names.co.uk, they put up all my prices after an agreement on renewals, wanted £10 per domain name to unlock them. With over 300 names, they ripped me off and the small print is how they trick you. AVOID at all costs. Their hosting is also a rip off and their customer service is a joke.

Expert Overview

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.

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
