Penguin's sales manager has just written to me thanking for my review beginning "cheaper than others" and adding some information.

I first used Penguin several years ago when they were a new hosting service, based in Wales and I think I asked them to quote to fix or refurbish a computer. The current position is that they are a "computer repair company, offering a range of Computer Services in and around the local area", but selling "only ... new products including the building of bespoke computer systems to suit the customer specification & budget, networking, maintenance & repairs."

About speed. I don't know if the speed of my cheap web presence account is typical of Penguin's more expensive services as they provide "shared hosting services over a large number of servers as well as providing Reseller accounts and Dedicated servers

Cheaper than others I've found for cheap hosting and domain packages: they quote a price per year at what other companies charge per month. What impresses me is that they have stayed in business, stable, with no hidden costs and even some email support. Others in the same price range have gone out of business and re-started, disconnected customers before the ends of their terms, or done anything to make money. Penguin just carry-on offering a good service on my four domains.

One of their secrets, I think, is that they are a computer repair company as well. They will quote to equip your office with refurbished equipment and I guess they got started with their hosting the same way.

Another secret is a medium server speed, rather than a fast one. Penguin are ranked somewhere above the middle of the speed test league www.webperf.net .
