After trying to host our client's websites ourselves, for a number of years, we took the decision to outsource our hosting and take on a managed service. Flint Hosts has not only freed up our valuable time, but has provided the security and scalability that we needed too. We cannot recommend them highly enough

If you are looking for a UK-based, managed cloud hosting service, then I would recommend Flint Hosts. I've had no security issues; I can quickly upgrade to host my online shop and if I need any help their in-house support team is just at the end of the phone.

Blink PR has been using Flint Hosts for just under a year and I can honestly say their UK support team is second to none. They provided an exceptional migration service with no downtime at all to our website. Our website now loads much faster and we have a managed hosting package that enables us to upscale and downscale on a monthly basis, so we are not paying for any more than we need. I really couldn't rate them highly enough.

---- Note regarding reviews ----
I cant believe the reviews here - we have no track of any of the email address or names list in our current of backup database and I cannot believe that these reviews are true.

We dont get everything right and sometimes things go wrong but we would never leave emails unanswered, support tickets are always responded to with 12 hours and normally within a couple of hours and problems solved quickly. We host 4000 ColdFusion domains and the vast vast majority only have good things to say. I would like to try and answer some of these individuals issues in more detail and try and find out what happened as I dont believe that they are at all correct. If they could post their domain name that they had hosted with us then perhaps that would help us find out what the issues where and what happened.

As for a server clock not being updated.... The poster is indeed correct - it does happen automatically and all servers were updated when BST kicked in - perhaps the users code was wrong?

Very Poor Hosting Company
I had continious problems with Flinthosts throughout my time with them. I have now switched to a different company and have noticed a huge improvement in service and servers from the word go!

The last straw was when my websites index pages were being deleted for no apparent reason from my hosted websites on a daily basis and flinthosts support said that they didn't know the problem and was nothing that they could do about it.

The was also a hacking attack on flinthosts servers which resulted in ALL my website being overwritten by an Islamic extremist page!

I would NOT recommend flinthosts to anyone looking for reliable web hosting - their prices are very cheap but you get what you pay for!
