Terrible Company To Deal With

I bought one of their whmcs add on modules and it was just the worst experience. Support is lost, and management is no better. Based on my experience I dont see how the hosting side could be much better. There are so many hosting options out there with better support.

Hi i do not work for first2host but a few things that might help.

Try sending a second support and see why they did not answer the first i'm sure there will be a reasonable explanation. Failing that you can always try firing a...Read More message over on twitter.

Awful Services

First2Host kept closing my support tickets and even closed a dmca ticket. Would not recommend. Going to have to get a court order against them to shut down a phishing site. They are not cooperative.

First2Host,
Kieran,

Your request was about sponsorships, and not a DMCA request as you incorrectly state here. In case you forgot what, you asked us, I'm including it below. As advised, First2Host DOES NOT offer free services to anyone. T...Read Moreherefore, your review of our service is not only unfair and biased but a total lie.

Department: Sales Support
Subject: Sponsorships
Priority: Medium

Would you guys be able to provide me with a reseller hosting sponsorship? I'm the owner of a not-for-profit organisation that is aiming to allow students and entrepreneurs to start a online business free of charge. I'd offer business advice, support and other such things myself. I'd also monitor all accounts on a weekly basis to prevent any unauthorised use, and manually verify registration information.
I require a modest reseller account with unmetered bandwidth, overselling enabled and around 50GB storage. A monthly leased WHMCS license would be preferable where possible. I'm splitting my Service across multiple suppliers, so each supplier has relatively low needs to fulfil.
Regarding my half of the deal, I'll list you as an partner/sponsor in a prominent location on my website, and depending on how well you meet my requirements, potentially within my logo as well.
I know this is possible, and I hope you can help me with this business venture.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Uptime & Reliability

Good reliable hosting for most types of sites

first2host.co.uk offers technical support and domain management.  They have a live dedicated team that will help you solve an issue within minutes. They offer service monitoring and performance control. Most hosting provider’s only use phone calls for questions and concerns.  first2host.co.uk web services also has a resource center full of tutorials and a frequently asked questions center to help you troubleshoot through any technical issues you may have. Their servers are on a high speed network and are up and running  24 hours a day, 7 days a week. first2host.co.uk also has a customer community forum with advanced Cpanle guide where you can communicate with other members and learn new things about VPS servers.

I like recommending a hosting provider that offers more than one way to resolve technical issues. First2host.co.uk only offers a phone number on their website along with support tickets. Talking to a live person is important when it comes to trouble shooting an error. However, they do provide fast internet connection speeds on a secure network . They have a dedicated server which ensures accelerated speeds and less to no downtime involved.

Features

Hosting for all types of sites

first2host.co.uk offers four different types of hosting packages to choose from. You have the option of choosing between a shared hosting, unlimited reseller hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated server management. Each plan is structured differently and varies in space, connection and bandwidth depending on the size of business and website requirements. Each plan varies in disk space and domains per account. Their Unlimited hosting plan offers across the board unlimited web space, bandwidth, database storage, multi-domain hosting and much more.

If your website needs  VPS, first2host.co.uk offers a large selection of  core space and management to help accelerate your data on a large secure network. There is over 4 plans to choose from varying in space. First2host.co.uk offers VPS on One core, Dual Core, Four Core, and even eight core processors. They come with unmetered monthly bandwidth and offer a DDR-4 Ram ranging from 512MB-8GB.  If your website or businesses is doing high volume of traffic and require a lot of space, backup and reliability to operate smoothly, then I recommend using their VPS solution. It is also affordable for all size businesses as detailed below.

Pricing

Very reasonable pricing

first2host.co.uk offers an unlimited shared hosting plan for only  £2.99 a month. Domains around £9.99 a year and up. All plans are on a month to month basis and all include support and client portal with control panel. first2host.co.uk  also offers an unlimited reseller plans ranging from £4.95-24.95. Their packages are set up on four different reseller tiers. Reseller one, two, three and four. All four plans provide different amounts of disk space and bandwidth. Diskspace for their reseller plans range from 20GB-Unlimited and Bandwidth from 5GB- Unlimited. All Plans come with control panel and domain management tools to easily toggle between sub domain management and email account management. Their prices are very affordable for the space and storage they offer per plan and they offer discounts up to 25% off  when you sign up for your first month.

Summary

Overall excellent hosting

first2host.co.uk has a very structured and competitive pricing plan for their web hosting services. They have surpassed competitors brand name hosting companies like Hostgator in customer service, cost and product features. I like having confidence in a company that can promise a secure and reliable server all at an affordable price. I would recommend first2host.co.uk based on the amount of positive feedback and reviews that I have come across on their website. They are known to be inexpensive, have impressive uptime, Lots of OS choices and have a 5 out of 5 star rating on Host Advice.com

Pros:
