Keep away from this company.It has a lousy customer service. The Control Panel is so difficult to use. The staff are so unhelpful, they even block accounts and emails. Being so many years with them has been a real struggle, the emails dont work for the staff and have to use hotmail accounts. Complete watse of time and money.

Have given 1 star, I would have given 0 stars or (-) negative if I could.

took money without permission
Ok with domain for new start up company - web hosting unsatisfactory but I was ok wiht that . What was utterly unfair is that they claimed a second year contract and charged way more like 200 euors plus for something I do not use. They replied to none of my emails but use my original credit card details to take the money

Very sneaky and dishonest company that relies on it's T&C to scam people out of money. Read them very carefully, because they don't like to tell you important information, example when you sign up it is a 2 year contract, after your initial payment of £5 you must them pay £118+ every year until you cancel (once the minimum 2 year term is up you must manually cancel and it is made difficult to do so in order to discourage it). They don't like to refund even though you are paying in advance so technically you haven't even used the service, and the customer is very poor, almost robotic. All they could tell me was "read the T&C" and "we will take you to court if you don't pay or charge back the money". Shameful
