Pickaweb Web Hosting

Pickaweb is a London-based web hosting company. They were founded in 1999, and are one of the UK’s oldest hosting companies. They now host tens of thousands of websites, serving primarily UK-based small and medium sized businesses, as well as personal bloggers.

Services and Specialties

Pickaweb offers several tiers of shared hosting, two different types of VPS plans at multiple service levels, dedicated servers, and reseller hosting plans.

Shared hosting plans are available in several tiers, each with higher limits on usage and performance. They are also larger groups of service offerings. Basic shared hosting packages use conventional hardware, while Premium shared hosting packages run on better machines equipped with Solid State Drives (SSD).

All of Pickaweb’s VPS offerings are “cloud based” (though some of their technical marketing copy is a little confusing on this point). This means that their VPS plans are not running on single machines (“bare metal”), but are deployed on a cloud, or cluster of scalable computing resources. VPS hosting packages, which are available in several usage-defined tiers, are available in conventional and SSD plans.

Pickaweb offers a small pre-configured selection of dedicated server plans, and they also allow for custom rigs.

They also offer reseller hosting packages, for customers who want to set up their own UK-based hosting company.

VPS and Dedicated server plans from Pickaweb have the option of full server management service.

Datacenters and Technology

All of Pickaweb’s servers are in London, putting them close to a major center of world finance and business. This is also ideal for UK-based companies serving content to a primarily local audience.

The physical building features multiple redundancy in protected power, HVAC, fire suppression, network connectivity and on-site armed security. It operates on 100% sustainable energy.

  • 24/7/365 on-site security team
  • Dedicated N+N in line UPS arrangement
  • Centralized N+1 HV diesel standby generators with 72 hours on-site fuel capacity
  • 6 self-contained Data Halls within main facility
  • Diversity of carriers offering fully resilient connectivity
  • Diverse fiber entry points to site
  • 3-meter high perimeter fence
  • Manned vehicle entry gate to site
  • Internal and External IP CCTV complete site coverage
  • Leak detection system
  • Online ‘realtime’ interactive environmental monitoring system
  • Biometric entry system
  • Full authentication & access policy control
  • Security bollards at building perimeter
  • Secure on-site parking bays
  • Centralized N+1 water mist fire suppression system with VESDA detection
  • Free-cooling features in environmental infrastructure
  • Effective metering and monitoring

Pickaweb uses high-end Dell servers, with Intel Xeon E3-1220v3 processors. Some plans come with Solid State Drives (SSD).

Support and Customer Service

Pickaweb’s customers enjoy 24 support via phone, email, and live chat. There is also an extensive knowledgebase and a set of tutorial videos available.

Security and Backups

Pickaweb’s datacenter is physically very secure, and its network is protected by several layers of security and redundancy.

Some web hosting plans include premium daily backup service, with CPanel-based restore, but not all plans include this feature.

Uptime Guarantees

Pickaweb offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee, subject to the usual restrictions:

  • Pickaweb is not responsible for downtime caused by user action or user negligence
  • Pickaweb is not responsible for downtime caused by third party apps or upstream providers
  • Regularly scheduled maintenance does not count against downtime

Costs and Payment Policies

Pickaweb is a little more expensive than US-based hosting companies providing similar services, but is fairly inline with other UK and European-based hosting companies. If you are serving content and web apps to that market, it makes sense to pay to have a datacenters closer to your audience.

All major credit cards are accepted, as well as PayPal.

Value Added Tax

US-based customers who are used to zero sales tax on web hosting and other services might be surprised by the VAT (Value Added Tax). This is a form of sales tax used in the UK and most other European countries. It is not a strict percentage on final sale price, but is based on the margins. (That is, two products at the same price to you might have different VATS, and therefore different costs).

Some web hosting companies include the VAT in their advertised pricing, but Pickaweb does not. It is therefore important to get information on final, VAT-included pricing before making a decision about which hosting company to use.

Summary / Conclusions

Pickaweb is a high quality hosting company suitable for a variety of use cases where the primary audience is based in the UK. This is includes British bloggers and publishers, London-based financial industry businesses, and developers of app targeting the UK market.

The worst customer service ever, More like pick-a-fight! I've had ongoing problems with pickaweb and have found their livehelp to be very lacking. Staff seem uninterested in issues and try to get you to jump through all manner of hoops rather than actually sorting problems.

They upgrade things and won't admit screwing site access up, staff are in total denial. You get differing answers to the same question from different support staff. I can't recommend pickaweb, they are their own worst enemy when it comes to customer service with argumentative support staff. Get a grip pickaweb, you have the customer service skills of a brick!.

We have been using PickaWeb for a number of years and they are always available for support, there is hardly ever any downtime, and they would be very hard to beat on value for money. The staff are always helpful and polite, and have great patience. I would recommend them highly,.

Honestly, having used many companies over the years for various sites and projects, Pickaweb is by far THE best! anyone can be a hosting company, but to be the best you need world class, non sarcastic tech support and customer service and pickaweb just outshines everyone else by miles and miles.

I'm a newbie and have taken out a resellers package. I decided to go with picaweb as they seemed big on support and value for money. I tested out support before i signed up and got Really quick response times from telephone calls, email and live chat.

Since i' signed up i've had to call on support a few times and have always had a quick and satisfactory result. Knowing i have helpful support is a godsend to a novice like myself. Hats off to pickaweb and the support they provide.

I am a new customer but so far my experience has been very good. I have had a few issues moving my domains from Plesk but your support team has been excellent on every occasion and they have helped me to overcome the problems. This almost instant support is the biggest plus of the Pickaweb package.

The service that I received in all areas were fantastic, when I called the main phone line and wished to place an order for web hosting, they set me up right away. No messing they were able to give me directions on what I needed the payment enquiry was sorted fast and then was able to establish my account right away. They all worked quickly, they did not mess me about and take things and drag them out.

They are precise in all areas and move swiftly on the next task ahead. I give them my full commitment and will recommend to my friends and family I have been on the help department as there were certain things I did not understand, trying to get my site up and loaded, trying to move the domain name and get it loaded to the web hosting that I had just ordered. Each step was taking me through all the right members of the team from email, enquiries, Billy but I have had no need for them but there is a enquiry of help you can go to. I will recommend them to all I meet.

I have been with Pickaweb for nearly 15 years. In all that time any help needed has been easily forthcoming and superbly dealt with. I switched to VPN server last year and have been delighted with the backup service.

Cannot fault them. They have always been there even late at night. Super value for money too.

Pickaweb is my go-to domain and hosting provider for all the websites I manage, my own and my clients'. They offer value for money, all the functionality I need, an account management website/interface which is simple to navigate and to find what I need when I need it - but where they really shine is with their outstanding support and customer service. Whatever happens they are always just a chat away and I've never had an issue that hasn't been solved within minutes, whether account/billing or technical. I highly recommend them and I wouldn't use anyone else.

Have had very few issueswith Pickaweb and any issues I had were dealt with promptly. All were actually related to something I did wrong and the guys were great at helping me out - especially when I wiped out a whole subdomain. Talking about the world ending.

Not a problem for Pickaweb. Back up and running within an hour. Great service. Declan Barry

I am very much a novice when it comes to websites, yet I have had no problem purchasing a domain name, hosting pack and creating my own website. Pickaweb has given me lots of solid support when needed and nothing is too much trouble. I highly recommend this hosting company.

I have only had dealings with one support member; Liam, who is either extremely busy or I'm just fortunate. Either way, result.

Not being technically gifted I've found the support team absolutely brilliant. Quick to answer and very quick to solve any problems. I did a lot of searching for a new hosting package and it looks like I've chosen the right one as the cost was one of the best and it is a UK based company. Marvelous.

I cannot say enough good things about the support I received today. Bradley went over and beyond what I expected. Both of my sites on my server had been hacked and I was left with nothing.

I had to clear my /home folder and restart my build, fortunately I had clicked backup on softoculous at some point and he managed to revive and reinstall my sites from this. Then found the infected files and removed them. With service like this, why would you ever use another hosting company? I know we won't.

Fantastic! Their online chat is immediately responsive and so helpful. I've been using them for years and will continue to do so.

This is a complicated thing for me and with Pickaweb, I am able to do so much on my own (with their expert help). I have speedily been able to buy a number of domains, set up hosting, set up redirects and even some email accounts. Highly recommended!

How do you value or rate a hosting company? Not by what others say, not by you having 99.99% uptime. But by them been there for you when you need them the most.

A service I normally would pay for, I was given for free because it was a lifesaver at that very moment. They were there when I needed them the most. Thanks Liam. You literally saved my ass

Each time I have had a problem with my website or domain name Pickaweb staff have never failed to deliver since I started with them a year ago. This time I thought I had totally lost my website and had even consulted a friend who knows quite a lot about running websites. Guess what?

Liam from Pickaweb sorted the problem in seconds. I was quite impressed again. Well done guys keep up the excellent service you provide.

Sometimes I feel I am asking a basic question - that I perhaps should know - but they are cool with that and resolve it. Great job guys!

I had to use the chat line to tech today and they were very quick and efficient, sorting out my problem straight away for me. I was not able to see the problem but Tim went onto my account and sorted the problem from his end. I am not a great tech person myself and so find it really useful that the chat line is so quick and efficient in sorting out my problems.

They are always really helpful and never show that I am really a dunce when it comes to doing all the tech stuff. Thanks for being there

When needed, Pickaweb's support is always easy to get hold of and in my experience they are always really helpful in sorting out whatever problem I may have. I can usually measure any problems being resolved in minutes rather than the hours or days that I've experienced at other companies elsewhere.

Liam did an excellent job this afternoon in helping me a problem I was encountering with a Wordpress 4.5 upgrade. He managed to sort the problem whilst I was online and everything is running perfectly. As always, I find myself praising Pickaweb's superb customer service. It's why I've been a customer for so many years.

Affordable and simple website builder with excellent support. The most basic package allows you complete website control without any annoying adverts being placed on your website, you can connect your domain, add a favicon and have access to a load of templates! Every time I've contacted the support team they have resolved my issues quickly, would definitely recommend!

I needed help with my site today and spoke initially to Bradley who sorted everything out for me. Lter I had another problem with my cPanel and this time I chatted to Liam. Liam sorted my problem out within a minute!

I have the greatest confidence in Pickaweb support. They have never failed to solve whatever problems I have. This is something that you can't really put a price on when you are dealing with such complex issues.

I always find that Pickaweb are not only price competitive but also top class when it comes to back up. I am happy to recommend this company they will not dissappoint

I have an ongoing issue because my web site was compromised and consequently my email - vital for my small business. After a bit of back-and-forth, Adam has managed to help me brilliantly this morning. Thanks go out to him.

I'm still not out of the woods yet and I still need to establish how it happened - what role exactly does Pickaweb play in hosting my domain name for example? Should they spot the hack and suspend the site as they did when it happened a few years ago (they didn't this time)? The live chat is very good - I'm a telephone person (I teach effective face-to-face communication for a living) so do find it rather frustrating. Thanks again to Adam and Liam.

First of all I love that Pickaweb is a UK based company, I feel they're around when I am and listen. Every time I ask for help, I get instant responses using the online chat. They are also available out of hours.

They then provide me with scripts of those conversations so I don't forget anything. I have only received excellent service. Today I contacted them to find out how to migrate and retain my old emails and they are taking over the whole process for me. For an amateur, they make me feel confident.

Always on hand when I need, literally 24 hours a day as we do work round the clock. Even hold and restore backups of our files as and when we bump into a crisis. We have a number of domains and fixed IP's.

Pickaweb really can adapt to our needs. We have to move away from Go-Daddy as they didn't understand our requirements of a fixed public IP for outbound applications.

Pickaweb provide a service that, although not perfect, gives results you would not achieve with other providers. For example. I just had a problem accessing my webmail.

Through Pickaweb's online chat I had the problem sorted within five minutes. No fuss. I've never had an issue with downtime on my website, and when I was cluelessly setting up the website, Pickaweb's online tech team helped me with some set-up issues which were beyond their area of responsibility.

Pickaweb has the best customer service I have come across in a web host. Their chat support can do anything! Instantly.

Resolve simple and complicated issues - help the untrained to set things up properly - sing, dance and wash up maybe too!! I've been really impressed. They are a professional bunch and treat every question - no matter how daft - with care and attention.

Their client area and control panel are crystal clear and well supported. I am delighted with every aspect of their service so far.

So Google suspended my website because of an SSL cerfiticate... pickaweb worked hard and closely with my self and developer to help us resolve the issue. I contacted the team via the chat on their site and was very satisfied with their support.

The team would spend the time required to help and if their shift was over they would pass it on to a colleague. Excellent service. Thank you guys

I have been with Pickaweb for the past 6 years. They have supported my web platform from the beginning. The uptime is superb.

The price is affordable. You can contact them at all time with a friendly response . I have cases in which I have to restore my websites to early dates due to corruption of files.

They dealt with with my request swiftly in every professional way. I will recommend their services to any one hoping to start a new business or looking for a reliable web hosting partner. They have packages for all your business needs

I've used a few hosting services and often been frustrated by waiting for a reply from support which, when it comes is in gobble-de-gook-speak. The great thing about Pickaweb is the 24hr support Most things are sorted in minutes and even complex things done in a day. Also, we have been able to host 3 domains while paying one fee. Great.

Does the job as should be done . Helpful support . Any problem I had I received assistance with and all the time got issues sorted out.

I do ask often questions as I am quite new in web development so they did well for me . My website is responsive and never down as far as I can see . I am happy with the hosting plan as well.

Pickaweb Frequently Asked Questions

  • What types of hosting plans does Pickaweb offer?

    Pickaweb offers several tiers of shared hosting plans, as well as VPS, cloud-based virtual servers (which is, essentially, VPS), dedicated servers, and reseller hosting.

  • What forms of payment are accepted?

    Pickaweb accepts all major credit cards, and also PayPal.

  • Is there an advantage to paying for a year or more upfront?

    Yes. Annual plans have a lower monthly cost than month-to-month plans. Biennial plans are an even better value.

  • Can I pay for hosting month-to-month?

    Yes, on most plans. The lowest tier of shared hosting does not allow for monthly billing.

  • What other payment terms are available?

    Most shared hosting plans are available for monthly, annually, and biennially billing. The lowest tier of shared hosting can be paid for quarterly, annually, or biennially. VPS and Dedicates hosting plans have billing options of monthly, quarterly, and annually.

  • Does Pickaweb offer any type of money back guarantee?

    Yes. Pickaweb plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee. (This does not apply to Dedicated Servers.)

  • What type of support does Pickaweb offer?

    Pickaweb offers 24/7 technical support via phone, live chat, and email. They also have a comprehensive knowledge base and extensive video tutorials.

  • Will I have to pay for renewal registration on my free domain name?

    Yes. Free domain names are only free during the first year.

  • Do hosting plans come with a free domain name?

    Yes. Almost all of Pickaweb's retail hosting plans include a free domain name. The lowest tier of shared hosting does not include a domain name, though.

  • Should I get an SSD storage plan? What's the difference?

    SSD, or solid state drive, is a type of hard drive. Conventional computers have spinning disk drives (most people have these in their desktop and laptop computers). SSD, similar to the type of storage used in USB Flash Drives, is much faster than conventional spinning disks. But it is also much more expensive. If you need faster loading times, and can afford it, SSD hosting plans are usually a better option.

  • What is the difference between Pickaweb's VPS and Cloud hosting plans?

    VPS and Cloud Hosting are (usually) interchangeable terms. Pickaweb uses "Cloud hosting" to refer to their VPS plans that are built with Solid State Drive (SSD) storage.

  • Which hosting plan should I get?

    That depends on what you need. If you are setting up a personal blog, or a simple website for a small businesses or local non-profit, then one of the shared hosting plans is probably right for you. If you are setting up an enterprise web server (a server for internal use in a large company), a high-traffic site, a SaaS web application, or another type of site that either will generate a lot of traffic or require a lot of custom set up, then a VPS (or cloud-based) plan is usually the right choice. People who need dedicated server equipment usually know they need it. This is often used for the same purposes as VPS, but when there are specific custom requirements about hardware configuration or security.
