"Ok my years hosting will be finished in 6 days and I thought I would leave a little review about valuehost (NB I'm leaving as im hosting my site on my own network now)Overall I would say Valuehost have been excellent.I have only noticed downtime twice in the past year.There servers are allways fast (downloads etc).Support is good and I normally get a reply within 40 mins 9-5.I would recommend them to anyone.Best Regards Matthew Keen"

"I was thinking about joining up to Valuehost.co.uk myself actually... they seem like they have some pretty nice deals going on.One of the things that worries me at the moment about them is their unlimited bandwidth offer that is supposedly around '40-60GB/month' or so... also I wouldn't mind getting a demo or a look at their control panel, but they don't have one to show or use. They also don't use PHPMyAdmin as far as I can make out, which is also a shame, although they do have some form of MySQL manager.Good things about them are their speed... well for me at least, their pages (and their client's pages) are lightning fast at loading. And of course their price is great for all the features and webspace they offer.I've seen some decent reviews on them, and their own forums seem quite positive (if a little empty at times)."

"What? this is completely contrary to my 3 months hosting with them. I lost my site for almost 5 days during one stint of downtime and I never had a responce from their support quicker than 24 hours.They oversell, I regularly I have FTP uploads fail and get a "device full" error (i was only using 70MB of my alloted space), these errors often meant scripts malfunctioned and index files became corrupted until the next day when it gets fixed.I have had many problems with them, as have many other customers, just search here for some horror stories. I emailed their support last week about an issue, and I'm still waiting for a reply."

"A little late for a reply, but I am making a concerted effort to warn everyone of the lack of support you get from valuehost. I purchased a Virtual package from them a year ago, and it seems whenever I need them to do anything they never respond to emails, support tickets, phone calls, faxes, however you may choose to contact them.Telephone number simply dont work anymore (Number has not been recognised) - and when they did the voicemail was always full, and it was VERY rarely anwered.Fax, well good luck.Email support, tried this way too, never had a response after numerous email support requests. Eventually after about 3 days of trying to contact them I finally managed to get them on the phone. And they tell me "Oh, you must use the support ticketing for fast support", hmmm, so support@valuehost.co.uk is just a gimmick. Tried ticketing. Their promiss is they will respond within 20minutes. Its been 24hours now and no response. Again, phone calls, emails, numerous support tickets, and no response, even a post on the forums which I know they moderate.All I want to do is transfer in a domain name, thats all.This is by no means the first time I have had trouble either. Their servers are consistantly slow, and MySQL databases are intemittenting simply not working. I have also had this trouble transferring in other domain names.Would NOT recommend ANYONE uses Valuehost.BTW. Their forums are full of good testimonials. (They moderate the posts before allowing them to go public)."

"I have to agree with Richard about the VH service. Slow is even a friendly statement, and beside that they not read the question in the email it seems, but just reply standard or auto pilot. About the servers, I not have comments and of course they can speed up (but even than I want faster servers) but in common all is working well. Database I not use really and what I use seems ok.The package is a good deal but when you need support, even the forum died some time ago. Reason to moderate the forum is experiences in the past. Moderating is done by some good willing guy who is not working for VH. VH is on the forum as well.When there are no problems, you will have a good package. Beware for technical issues, because than Richard explained well.I have to tell that when you manage to contact them by phone, the problem is solved quickly.Hope this helps."
