they are simply crooks
they stole my money

months of the site going down. Each time they suggested a cure and made me pay, this went on and on. Then they sent me an email saying it had been their fault. I asked for the extra money I had paid them to be returned and they refused point blank. I said I would take it further and they suspended all my sites ans all my email accounts without notice. My business went into freefall. Every time I called to complain they hung up on me. These people are crooks and since they are based in scotland you cannot take them to the small claims court

Be very afraid - it was all great until they were taken over - no longer.

it is worth pointing out that global gold are no longer in harlow - they were bought by iomart in scotland so the contact details on this sight are just lies.

Terrible and just getting worse
Started out OK with these guys, until the down time started out. They really do use every excuse in the book. Completely full of shit. The guy who started the company and built their good name is gone now, and has hit own company. was taken over by iomart, and they have ruined the entire setup with crap support, and really poor uptime.... keep away, and don't let the cheap price tempt you.

Noticeable decline since the move
Globalgold of Harlow were great until they sold out/moved to Glasgow. After sales service is a joke, emails go unanswered and telephone conversations are hard work. My forums have been off line twice in under 10 days. Half of Globalgolds own website have dead links. I am actively looking to move my business away. Not impressed and no I would not recommend them. Their customer service is now a joke. I always wanted to use a UK based hosting company because it puts the money back into the UK, now as I have already said, I am looking elsewhere. Globalgold, if you are reading this then get your house in order!!

service quality failing after company takeover
There was a time not so long ago when you could email Globalgold and get a sensible reply and good help when needed. Since GlobalGold has been taken over we have had at least 2 instances of downtime with no notice. When I called their support number the call centre that responded was almost unintelligible. I had to scream and shout to get a domain renewed even though it was ordered via their own system and now all our sites are down and they no longer accept emails to their support address. The online system automatically recycles you so you don't get to submit a message so we seem to be heading toward the pits of customer service instead of the paragon that USED to be GlobalGold. The recent so-called improvements they have promoted are not reflected in the customer service standard. Time to look around for a better supplier. A pity because the plans they have offered have been good - but now something seems to be going badly wrong.
