Is UK Cheap Hosts the host for you?
By KeriLynn Engel
True to their name, UK Cheap Host boasts the cheapest web hosting in the UK since 2006. They offer shared hosting, reseller hosting, and domain registrations for anyone who needs to build a website on a tight budget.
UK Cheap Host specializes in shared web hosting. All shared hosting accounts include cPanel control panel.
They offer three levels of hosting: Value, Value Pack Plus, and Business. The Value Pack Plus and the Business hosting plans include a free .co.uk domain for one year. Unlike many other hosts, UK Cheap Host doesn't offer unlimited storage or bandwidth with any of their accounts, in order to avoid overloading their services and ensure enough resources for all of their clients.
The Reseller hosting plan, intended for agencies or web designers, includes WHM and cPanel, as well as private nameservers. It's 100% white label, so you can use your own branding and your clients won't know UK Cheap Host is involved. You can create and customize your own hosting packages for your clients. Space and bandwidth is limited, but you can host as many clients as you want to as long as they fit within your allotted server resources. You can limit the amount of resources each client uses, and automatically suspend accounts that go over their bandwidth limits.
UK Cheap Host uses a data center based in the UK, though they don't reveal the exact location.
UK Cheap Host offers support via a ticket system.
They also provide a knowledgebase on their website that address most common questions and issues related to web hosting, including transferring domain names, ensuring your website's security, and installing software like WordPress or Joomla!
UK Cheap Host runs weekly backups as a courtesy, but their terms of service note that your use of their hosting service is at your own risk, and they don't guarantee their backups. You must take full responsibility for your own files and maintain your own backups.
UK Cheap Host has a 99.9% uptime guarantee. If they don't meet their guarantee, you can apply for a one month credit on your account.
All accounts are charged automatically on a recurring basis. UK Cheap Host provides a 3 day grace period from the time the invoice is generated and the invoice due date. After 3 days, a late fee will be applied and your service may be suspended.
UK Cheap Host offers a 14 day money back guarantee to new clients on all hosting products. Your request for cancellation and refund needs to be submitted via support ticket within 14 days of creating your new account.
The refund does not include domain registrations. If you took advantage of their free domain registration offer for new clients, the cost of the domain registration will be deducted from your refund and you get to keep that domain you registered.
UK Cheap Host is a good choice for those looking for basic web hosting for a small website on a tight budget. Since support options are limited, this web host is best suited for more tech-savvy website owners.
