Pinned Review

Jonathan T.,
I was looking for the best hosting in the UK, and I am pretty sure I found it. I'm ok with paying slightly higher prices than other companies because it is well worth it for the stability. You also get a free .uk domain name when you sign up with them, which is great! You'll love them. I know I do.

Avoid at all costs.

Avoid at all costs, this company will damage your business!!! I recently purchased hosting for my business, the configuration was a disaster, my IT techs were unable to make sense of what was done and Namesco didn't to respond to...Read More support tickets leaving me with critical downtime, and they refused to speak with my tech on the phone. Customer services have also refused to speak with me. I have moved my hosting to another UK provider and I am now receiving the service I require. Namesco have refused a refund. This outfit has cost me a fortune in tech fees and lost business. Do not do this to yourself stay away!Less

I can see why they charge 12 pound for a domain release, its because everyone is transferring away based on exceptionally horrendous service.
I have been begging this circus to assist in ...Read Morea VERY basic problem, the website is so slow, I feel like I am on dial up internet, there BS excuse "the site is killing the resource. Ive installed the WP instance and the site on a more trusted hosting provider and its lightning fast. I need my IPS Tag changed and behold, they holding the domain to a 12 pound ransom.

AVOID...trust me!!!

They are scammers

I ordered a domain name. But I could not find any domain in my control panel. When I opened a support ticket, they replied the next day that due to some security reason we are unable to register domain for you. But they never refunded the paid amount. Stay away from these scammer.

Scammers, Can't access account

I can not access my account even though I verified it twice and sent numerous password reset links to my email, I even get the emails that my account has been verified, and that someone is accessing my account. WTH kind of softwar...Read Moree is being used and what am I being protected from? I'm consistently using the same email and computer to access my account so there should be No reason why I can't access my account, and the only way you can reach them is if you create a ticket or call and I can't do either because I am unable to log into my account to create a ticket, and their phone number uses UK area code and not a toll free number since they provide services outside of the UK. And since I don't have international calling, I am unable to get in contact with anyone, crazy how they have an option for people living in the US to create an account, I provided a US address, and they took the money off my card yet I can not access my account.
Fortunately I used my cashapp card so this fraudulent scamming company can't get anymore money out of me.

Is this Extortion ?

I have been a loyal customer for well over a decade. Today namesco has frozen one of my customer accounts for 2.36GB over quota. They email a warnings, but not that they will freeze your account.
I want to stress i pay for the un...Read Morelimited storage service. Unlimited now means 5GB tops. The account is now frozen and no one can delete emails to get the service activated again, unless you pay them extra money. No more 24hour grace period. This feels like extortion.

I'm now moving all hosting services away. Be careful with this company.
There are better hosts out there that will work with you to build long term relationships, and work with you to resolve issues.

Expert Overview

Very Well-Established Hosting Provider

Names.co.uk has been in business for over 18 years now, and have built a good company offering high quality hosting solutions.  They work hard to provide powerful, flexible web solutions with a friendly support system.  They offer web hosting, website building, ecommerce and much more so that individuals or businesses can get everything they need from this one company.

While their site is a little hard to navigate at times, they do seem to provide a very nice service as a whole.  Lots of options, reasonable pricing and much more make this an attractive company for anyone hosting in the UK or surrounding region.

Uptime & Reliability

Good Reliable Hosting

While I did not see any real uptime guarantees in place, the reliability of the hosting does seem quite good.  When looking at social media and other webhosting sites I found that most people are quite happy with with the stability of the hosting from this company.


Hosting and Much More

When looking at the hosting options provided you will see that they have a lot to choose from.  You can select either windows or Linux for the operating system.  They have shared hosting, VPS, dedicated solutions and more.  They also include one click installs of many of the most popular hosting applications.  When you look at their packages you will see that they have a lot to offer with a few small restrictions. Disk space is limited only in their entry level shared packages.  They do limit you on how many domains you can host in some packages, which is unfortunate.

In addition to the hosting you will get access to their app maker solution and SEO assistance and much more.  As a whole, you will see that they have a lot of nice features available to keep their customers very happy.


Quality Technical Support

The technical support is very easy to work with.  You can contact them through the ticketing system or other options and they have a good reputation of getting back to you fast.  They do have some online documentation available, but it is somewhat limited.  Overall, however, most people will be very happy with the level of tech support they provide.


Fairly Standard Pricing

The prices with this company are quite standard.  They start at just $3.99 per month (plus VAT) and go up from there.  There is no real great deals here, but the prices aren’t out of line either.  For most people, the price won’t factor in too much because it is not high enough to be a discouragement or low enough to really attract people.


Nice Overall Hosting Option

This company is a good option for people who need nice hosting in the UK or surrounding region.  They don’t have too much that really stands out as great, but they do have a good overall service so most people will be very happy with them.


  • Offer both Windows & Linux
  • Nice extra services
  • Very well-established


  • Some limits on some packages
  • No obvious uptime guarantee
