    Vidahost used to have amazing customer service, but not any more. I’ve had a problem accessing my domain via ftp for 14 hours now and still they have not resolved this issue. I phoned them three times, then opened a suport ticket, but still no help of any real value. They say they offer 24/7 support, this is clearly not the case, or I would not be here sitting writng this review, having tried for over 14 hours to get help to resolve this issue.

    This is really perfect domain registar in UK.
    Several days ago, I started a support ticket when I was facing a little problem when using their service, they answered me in two hours.
    Perfect indeed.

    Cannot recommend vidahost enough! Great software to access your server, loads of apps which can easily integrate with your website. And the customer service is awesome! Never dealt with a company who reply to support requests so fast and by people who have the capability and knowledge to be able to solve any issue!

    Another 5. Support is phenomenal. I swear Dom and Seb are acronyms for two support teams. I can’t believe just two people can be doing this. All responses I have had have been less than 5 minutes. I was in a state of shock when I first contacted them and their reply was virtually instant at 10:30 p.m. in the evening. Its useful responses as well, not the passed on to a tech expert after two days crap I used to get from my previous supplier and then nothing. And its half the price. Moved my other site there, been with them for 3 years – absolutely no complaints – they even sent me an e-mail explaining the reasons for a short service breakbreak. Top Notch

    I have been with Vidahost now for nearly 2 years and I must say that it has been first class all the way. I have been with other hosting companies which don’t come anywhere near the level of service and commitment Dominic and Seb at Vidahost give there customers. As a novice they have helped me and my company no end and would have no worries in recommending Vidahost to anyone.

    I’ve been with Vidahost since December 2006, so 4 years now and thought it’ll be a good time to write a review.

    I selected Vidahost as I wanted fast, UK based webhosting. I read many forums and reviews before making the decision. I also emailed Vidahost directly to ask questions, to which they responded to each question directly 15 minutes later.

    4 years on, I don’t regret it. Support is both very prompt, normally with 10 mins (I don’t know when they sleep), and very polite and helpful.

    This year, I’ve even moved my domain registrars to Vidahost as I wanted to use a company that has personal fast support and not slow, scripted responses.

    So in a nutshell, very happy and no plans to move, infact, that reminds me, I need to renew sooner, especially before the VAT increase :-)

    I have been hosting with Vidahost for 5 years and experience no problems at all with downtime / server issues etc!

    That said Dom and Seb (the two guys behind it) have been massively supportive going above and beyond with helping me get on from novice to someone who has now invested in their reseller account and is getting his clients online!

    Their level of support is unprecedented!
    And as just about everyone else has said, almost everything is standard through to everything open in cPanel to mySQL databases to install blogs etc

    Awesome company that puts people first and who are not afraid to talk to you on the phone

    First of all my background is of a medical nature so my IT knowledge is very limited indeed . During the short time I have been with you I have consulted support on numerous occasions re tech problems I have encountered. To put it mildy I have struggled and at time I have nearly been in tears . However one of my knights in white armour namely Dominic has come to my aid during many of those times (like today for instance and has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help me and sort things out .
    This has always been in an expedient way and yet I know you must have plenty of people like myself wanting help

    The main point I wish to make is that because I know my own field of work inside out I have felt very embarrassed at having to (as I feel ) pester the life out of him . However not once has Dominic made me feel stupid or a fool and yet Ive often thought that he must dread seeing my name on the ticket when it arrives ha ha

    Seriously though you have no idea how much this means to someone like myself who does feel a fool re the techie side of things.

    The second of my knights in white armour namely Seb has come to my aid during many of those times and has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help me and sort things out . Seb appears to take over when Dominic leaves and it is always seamlessly .Clearly these two guys work as one

    Having had a terrible experience with previous host who took my money and then provided nil support I was determined to try and find a hosting service that provided top support and service, after doing research on web I opted for vidahost.

    I the short time I have been with them I know I have made the right decision, the couple of problems I have had transferring a domain has been fully supported by vidahost. They have responded quickly, have great communication system and given I have purchased just a basic service, have made it feel like a 5 star service. I am delighted.

    We are a company with business activities in both the UK and Poland. We found that having our online sites hosted by a Polish ISP a bit too risky after much down time, lack of support and various language problems. So we had to find a new ISP who we could trust and also who could offer all of the requirements we currently needed to maintain our online sites. Vidahost have proved to be that ISP. We have had great support in moving back to the UK from Poland some of our hosting requirements and getting the 1st of 2 online shops back online (the 2nd online shop still has to be moved). The technical help is also 100% as is the speed of returned emails and fault finding. I always think first impressions count and Dominic has sure shown that Vidahost cares about each and every one of its customers.

    We are now looking forward to a long and happy business relationship with Vidahost.

    We moved to Vidahost when our previous hosting company transferred all of their hosting accounts to Vidahost. During this transfer we experienced problems with Vidahost’s invoicing system, these were soon recitifed.

    We have just launched our new website and have got to say how helpful Seb and Dominic have been during the transfer process, they have answered all questions asked quickly and have sorted out problems that have occurred during the transfer process. I know that I can ask a question and it will get answered usually within 10 minutes at the max a couple of hours!

    I have had a few hosts and some have been ok, while others have been disastrous. I came to Vidahost purely through word of mouth when I was having a bad time with my then host.

    I have to say that so far Vidahost are the best hosting company I have had yet. It is not that they are 100% trouble free – no host is ever that – but it is the way that things are dealt with.

    First of all the speed! Every ticket is replied to extremely quickly. You actually get to correspond with somebody who speaks English AND knows what they are talking about! Somebody who doesn’t pass the buck and blame everything other than their servers. Somebody who is ALWAYS polite and helpful – what a breath of fresh air!

    Secondly, they go out of their way to help you, even when it has nothing to do with their hosting but perhaps a script you are using. They actually WANT your site up and running all the time!

    Vidahost definitely get a thumbs up from me!

    I used another company prior to switching to Vidahost, and thought that their service was good. However, since I made the switch to Vidahost I’ve discovered what a great provider they are – they put the previous company I used to shame.

    I’ve been very, very impressed with the level of support that I’ve received from Vidahost over the past year. I’ve asked them questions and have made some unusual requests, and in every case they have responded incredibly quickly – within minutes even when I’ve contacted them during very unsociable hours – and they’ve always been extremely helpful.

    Hosting is a cut-throat business but these guys are awesome at it. I shall be sticking with Vidahost for the foreseeable future as, in my experience, they really are fantastic, offering great packages at very good prices. Did I mention that they’re very reliable too…?

    I first became aware of Vidahost through a large thread on a bargain forum which is very apt as the low hosting prices give a great deal for what you get with them, and prior to discovering them I found it hard to get consistent good reviews or feedback for other webhosts. I’ve only just started to create websites and has been my first to be hosted on the Internet – I had a couple of issues getting it up and running, but I always got through to Vidahost quickly and was aided without any fuss.

    I would like to say a massive thank you for your incredible service that I have received from you with regards to the hosting of my domain and emails. You were the most cost effective solution for my company and the services that are offered far surpass the competition. Many companies offer great support until they have your money but I have found this different with your company. When I was looking to purchase you answered my queries and always phoned back within minutes of leaving messages.

    When we were looking for a new host, we were overwhelmed with the sheer number of providers out there. We decided to go for Vidahost based on the numerous recommendations out there. We have found their servers to be fast and their support excellent with most queries responded to within 10 minutes! They treat you as an individual, not just another number. Thank you Vidahost for a fantastic service!

    Had been with a USA based host for years and finally got sick of slowness and downtime. Transferred to Vidahost today and blown away by the server speed in comparison. (and this is only shared hosting!?!) Vida missed a call of mine during sign up period but rung me straight back to my surprise, tech guy on phone was extremely helpful and knew his stuff. If things continue like this I will be recommending to everyone. Big Thumbs up

    Vidahost are the best! We were worried at first that Vidahost might be another let down after bad experiences with a few of the “bigger” hosting companies, but they have been absolutely brilliant. Vidahost couldn’t have been more helpful if they tried. We had a few problems swapping our sites over and they offered to help. They answer quesries within a few minutes and genuinely want to sort problems out. My last hosting company had a massive help department and it seemed the game there would be to pass your problem around to as many people as possible. Not so at vidahost. Most of my problems sorted out within minutes

    I chose Vidahost from a shortlist of 5 other hosting providers. Being new to affiliate marketing, I chose a hosting provider on price alone when I started out at the start of 2009. With a combination of an increase in traffic and revenue on my website, and a decrease in reliability from my previous provider, I was forced into moving my website to a new host in July 2009. I sent each hosting company a number of questions and waited for their feedback. Though I’d researched those that I’d short-listed, I still needed something more to help me decide. I chose Vidahost based on response time. They, I believe, responded before anyone else to the questions, even though I sent them quite late in the evening. The friendly nature of their telephone contact that I spoke to the next day, the expertise in helping me choose the right product. the non-pushy sales talk as I said I was still looking despite taking their time on email and telephone and they were fine with this price; not as cheap as the previous hosting company but not as expensive as others. loads of fantastic positive reviews around the internet they’re based in Bath, Somerset, with people you can call on that not only know their stuff but also respond in lightening quick time. My previous host had a contact centre located in Asia and at times explaining my site issues became an issue in itself. I was losing sleep about the migration, but in the end there was minimal downtime, Vidahost guided me through all the necessary steps and I was live within half a day. Since then any small issue I’ve had has had a lightening quick response (they claim sub-10 minute response times but I’ve not had to wait that long) and they will ensure that anything you raise is fully looked into and acted upon. So in summary, I feel I’ve made a fantastic choice. On a technical side, one other, perhaps startling thing I found was how fast and responsive WordPress all of a sudden became! As this was my first personal installation of WordPress on the previous host I didn’t know any different. After the migration, posts were saving quicker and pages within WP were loading faster. However Vidahost have set up their infrastructure is making my life as an affiliate marketer so much more easier now. I shouldn’t have to worry about the technical back-end of my site and now I feel I don\\\’t really have to. All in all, job well done from Vidahost and I look forward to many many more years hosting more websites with them.

    A couple of months ago I switched from to because I was after a more flexible and cost effective service. The migration of both my .com and domains to Vidahost was effortless. The support was very fast and it was a great start. Following the migration of my first 2 domains, I migrated the rest of my domains as I was very impressed with the service, especially the incredibly helpful and fast responding support. Any queries or changes I required to my service were implemented very quickly. I have yet to come across an ISP that is as flexible as Vidahost and that is prepared to tailor the service to my needs. I wanted to add a shell account to my services and this was done within 5 minutes of me calling in! All in all, a very happy and impressed customer. I have already referred people to Vidahost and will continue to do so

    Vidahost have proved over many years to actually deliver superb service, and continuous service – just the sort of thing a small-scale custom webdesign studio and reseller like myself is looking for. Previously I have tried a dozen others, both market leaders and internationally recommended hosts – only to find their service, customer support, or restrictions rendering their services untenable. One even had 5-weeks continual downtime, refused to answer my support queries, and then did not renew a domain name – even though they charged me for it. I eventually had to report them to Nominex, and their parent company finally sorted things out (With Nominex guidance). Eventually I did receive a communication from them, simply asking me to supply my bank details so they could take payment – they didn’t even know I had moved all my domains to Vidahost 6 months previously! Hahaha!BT are another load of idiots – there service is probably fine, but their servers are actually located in USA and accessed via a third party who only support defined browsers (IE 7 or higher). I now have this domain hosted with Vidahost for my client
    \r\nI really like Vidahost for three reasons. 1. Excellent service 2. Excellent support from Seb and Dominic 3.Excellent Control Panel with full root access and the ability to alter cmod permissions (Sometimes required to update certain things like Forums, weblogs, etc) They also continue to update their hardware and software, always adding new and useful things to their packages The only downside is that it is not free (Joke) – but heah! These people offer the very best service in the world at very competative prices. Try it and see, you won’t regret it

Every query I have made through their website has been followed up by a personal email within a few minutes. All technical issues I have had have been solved just a few minutes later. Indeed, the service has been so good that we are planning to move our business-critical systems into their dedicated server hosting package, again the cheapest in the industry with an unparalleled level of reliability.

    I’ve had a Vidahost shared hosting account for several years. How good are they? Good enough that I recently consolidated all my domains onto Vidahost’s hosting.

    In addition to my websites, all my email goes through Vidahost’s hosting, so it’s essential that the service is reliable. Fortunately the company’s servers are fast and very rarely experience downtime.

    It’s the support that won me over, though. I recently inadvertently attracted 100GB of traffic to my website in a five-hour period. Not only did my site stay online until I hit my bandwidth limit (and remember, this is shared hosting), but when I discovered the issue at 3am, Vidahost were on hand within the hour to restore service to my site (something which they had no obligation to do.)

    My first experience of vidahost was when I transferred my domain names over from 123-reg. I had heard wonderful things about vidahost on various forums and so decided to give it a try. I was very impressed with the professionalism shown even in the simple task of moving over domain names. The guys seemed very friendly and helpful. As a result I decided to try out the high speed UK based hosting services. The ball kept rolling and now I have all my domain names and a reseller account with vidahost. The service is quite outstanding. The latest episode was an 11pm one that required accounts to be transferred urgently from an older host. Even at this time of night the guys were most helpful in supporting the process and helping out. Not only is the support and service excellent but the wealth of information they possess and are willing to share ensures that everything runs smoothly and I learn alot in return. Absolutely no regrets so far and I cannot imagine that changing any time in the near future.

    In 2007 I hosted my own server, providing myself with whatever service I wished. Unfortunatly it was expensive…I needed a cheaper solution.

    With a sigh I started my long search for a hosting provider fitting the following requirements:

    1. They had to be cheap, dirt cheap, after all im an educated technical person I know this stuff isnt rocket science.
    2. They had to be reliable..when im round my mates house and i show him my gallery photos I dont want to see some error 404 message
    3. They had to have a damn good control panel, as a technical person I want to control every aspect of my hosting space…ftp…web…access, email, exceptions.

    I tried no less than 6 providers (happy to give you exact details of who I tried upon request).

    In the end I tried Vidahost for a month…

    I would like you at this point (if your still reading) to imagine an extremly awkward customer. One of those people who seems to just want everything for nothing. That great service you thought you provided…with this bugger of a customer think again they want double.

    Thats me that is.

    Vidahost have satisfied every request I have asked for…look at this:

    1. I didnt like the choice of 4 web based email services they provided…so they specifically installed a new one for me (roundcube)

    2. I didnt like the fact I couldnt access my control panel for work…they set me up my own proxy server so I could access it

    3. My gallery photo site didnt work (desite the fact it also never worked on anyone elses hosting space)…they got it to work for me and even told me how to update it.

    4. Their responses to tickets have always been less than 30 seconds.

    Sorry…what…you meant 30 minutes right?

    Nope, I mean exactly what I typed, 30 seconds – try the trial, see if im wrong…

    I keep coming back to vidahost. The prices are good, but more importantly the support is superb. They have rang me back if the line was engaged, and have answered my emails without fail. A quality hosting company!

    This is the second hosting with Vidahost. Have set this one up for a friend, after having great service myself.

    Top marks! Ordered the site and domain name, and 1 hour later all the account and space had been setup. Four hours later the domain was active and everything was working. Five hours from nothing to having a site on the net! Can’t give a high enough score.

    The email response is also very quick and polite.

    One very happy customer.

    This is my first go at finding hosting. I chose Vidahost mainly because there’s a telephone contact number where you can get help quickly. That’s the most useful thing for me because I’m not in IT and I don’t have any IT mates. So I’m doing this blind and alone.

    Setup was easy and it took about 2 hours from paying to getting my webspace. The control panel is a bit overfacing at the start (1 billion options). But in fact, I didn’t have to touch any of that. Just uploaded files to the IP and voila! I also wanted to install a forum but wasn’t keen on the phpBB automatic install. So I emailed them and within 30 mins I had a reply saying they could install SimpleMachinesForum (which I wanted) for free. They did it and within 10 minutes it was up and running. Stunning stuff.
    I’m still at an early stage .. but I am very happy with them. They seem to know their stuff very well and don’t speak in IT jargon, thank god.

    Perfect. Up time is around 99.9% and not a single problem, absolutely faultless! Any problems (if any) are quickly resolved via MSN or a freephone number. Prices are really good and they were more than happy to move me to their new, high-end London servers.

    My first experience of using a Hosting company.
    I entered the wrong domain name by mistake.

    My email asking if it was possible to correct my error was answered within the hour and the error was fixed within 24 hrs.
    ( a new domain name which I originally wanted was provided free of charge )

    Everything works as it should so far.

    Very impressed

    Had hosting with Vidahost for several months now, and so far I cannot fault it. Plenty of bandwidth with good speed, good controls with cPanel X.

    The hosts themselves are incredibly friendly and helpful, and seem to never sleep either!

    Set-up was very fast, overall highly reccomended!

    I found Vidahost from OcUK after my bargain deal with dreamhost had expired. I would recommend them to anyone, the transfer of the domain was extremely painless and the service so far has been excellent with no major or noticeable downtime.

    First go with a web host, as i have previously played around with xampp on my own machine.

    So far so good. Rapid response to questions via email. Friendly guys. Easy to setup.

    Havent put a site up yet so will update when i have.

    Vidahost seem to pride themselves on being extremely helpful and friendly while still being excellent value for money.
    I’ve had no problems at all with their service and the guys are always helpful whenever I have a question about anything.
    Both uploading and downloading speeds are great and the flexibility the large amount of mysql databases brings is fantastic.

    Couldn’t recommend more :) Best webhosting company I’ve used over the past 5-6 years.

    Discovered Vidahost when asking on the OcUK forums for a decent hosting resellers provider. Too which was quickly answered by a couple of customers and a member of Vidahost Staff.

    Shortly after I started chatting to Beansprouts on MSN and he was addressing any queries I had as soon as I had them.

    Very helpful and friendly service, not too mention the quality and reliability of it as well. Have nothing but good too say about these guys!

    2000 Mysql Databases included in the package was like music too my ears, after paying £80 per DB from fasthosts.

    Moved from Krystal due to better available offers on Vidahost, and i must say the service is far superior to anything i’ve had with other hosting companies. Not only do you get a personal service, with directors being available on MSN pretty much all day (i’ve heard Dom doesnt sleep, they just charge him like a laptop!) and replying to emails before i’ve even had chance to flip to another window, they’re great value for money and offer all the tools you need to get your site off the ground.

    dont let the fact that they’re a fairly young company put you off, they conduct themselves with far more professionalism than you could ever need :o )

    Switched from 1&1 despite their hosting service being very good. But when a problem arose their CS let them down.

    Vidahost was on my shortlist (after finding this site) and my mind was made up when I discovered I knew one of the directors. He answered a few questions and I signed up.

    I’m still figuring my way around websites and VCpanel so any mistakes are usually fixed by some RTFM.

    Service so far has been reliable. Vidahost are verfy good value for money with more than enough webspace (for me) and data transfer.

    I have had experience with several hosting companies in the past. I am what is considered a very-light user. All I require is a domain name and catch all email.

    I know the MD of Vidahost but made sure I looked into the service and it’s competitors before offering over any money as I have been burnt in the past.

    I liked what I read on their site and from other users, so signed up at a very reasonable rate.

    It was made very clear to me that the hosting is based in the states but this has had no effect whatsoever.

    Customer service is fantastic, I always get a human reply within a few hours (to be honest it’s usually within minutes!) so cannot complain there at all.

    I needed the control panel software customising a little for my forwarding needs and this was performed immediately upon request.

    I would very happily recommend the company to anybody ranging from light users such as myself to corporate use.

    All in all a fantastic service which I cannot fault at all.

    Vidahost are excellent value for money. I have a customised reseller account which was up and running in no time. Any problems (read: Me not having a clue about some things) were sorted and explained straight away. Support and help is always available.

    Do it!

    Very personal and friendly service. I have a standard package and paid extra for SSH access which is a god send for minor changes to my php files. I also transferred my domain to them, which went through promptly and flawlessly.

    Can’t fault them yet.

    I have one of the starter packages from vidahost, mainly for hosting my photgraphy galleries. The download speed is very good, and like others it uses cpanel for administering your space. Only once did I have a problem, and the guys were very helpful with fixing it and providing a short-term alternative. Recommended. :)

    VERY friendly and personal service. The added bonus for this company is the fact that i directed a charitable event at them for a website redesign. The company policy (i have since found out) is that all not-for-profit organisations and those who are made of volunteers, can have sites designed for them for free!! (by those nice guys at VIDAHOST). Top marks all round IMHO.

    (Reviews merged)

    Vidahost have recently updated some of the packages. The Starter package now includes 5 addon domains, aswell as 5 parked domains. This coupled with no less than 20 MySQL databases makes it very good value. When you concider the amount of badnwidth and space you get aswell, your in pure heaven. The support. as i have already said, is also brilliant. I really cannot find any faults with this company. The company may be based in the USA, but i am yet to notice any difference, and compare the features you get on similarly prices UK servers with these.

    Vidahost provide domain names, shared/reseller hosting, and have servers in both the UK and USA meaning there are options for everyone and all services have been flawless for me.
