    What a crap host indeed, if you upload or use code editors like dreamweaver then you get a ip ban, they don't allow wordpress installs to send emails like password reminders blah blah

    The service is awful indeed, anyone else use them?

    I tried them due to them being based in the UK!

    I never had a problem with them but I always had a Semi Dedicated or Dedicated server. Their support was a bit lacking. They're live chat feature was almost always guaranteed to be operated by non british people who would leave you waiting for ages before responding or updating you.

    I moved to Vidahost as I wanted a more custom setup server to run a magento store very quickly - and the level of support there is beyond fantastic. There is no live chat, but if you email you always get a response within 10 minutes, and if you require a custom server setup like mine, they are cheaper, and run 10x quicker due to the configurations than webhosting uk.

    They are owned by 2 guys in Bath, and both have a 'hands on' role with the business, I dealt with one of the owners when deciding on my VPS and server setup, and he did everything for me.

    Give them a try - vidahost.com

    Yes they are terrible. I have about 10 wordpress niche sites on there purely because they are uk hosts, and the server is so old that half the plugins won't run, AND they won't transfer the sites to a new server.

    Avoid like the plague!

    £44 annual hosting is far from cheap for a host that states its good at wordpress hosting with a limit of 800mb

    PM me details, are you hosted in the UK?

    And be honest, are you a reseller? I will find out anyway but I prefer to know before hand
