    Do you know these companies?


    I'm trying to select a new web host (with UK-based servers) and I'd be happy to hear comments (good and bad!) about the following companies:

    > cwshosting
    > kdawebservices
    > k1z (formerly ukwebhosting?)
    > sonnetuk
    > tsohost
    > ukwsd

    I'm particularly interested in the quality of their support, uptime and connectivity issues.

    Many thanks.

    We're in funny mode now, hey?...
    C'mon, I've done my homework and came up with a nice shortlist. If someone has good or bad info, I'd appreciate. Thanks

    I've used SonnetUK's design service and found their customer service and attention to detail flawless. I cannot image their hosting would be otherwise. The user "I, Brian" has posted reviews and comments on them here.

    If you have considered with the list already then why don't you consider to have check with the support quality by yourself. You can send some of the sales query emails to these hosts and check for the support quality. You can also try out the other support quality by yourself may be at odd hours of the day or any other time preferred by you.

    This will provide you an idea as to what can be the support quality like.

    KDAWebservices is a member in this forum. I suppose you are looking for hosting based in the UK. should help you if you haven't been there yet.

    Good luck on your search!
    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    I use k1z and they have a good service.
    I never notice any downtime, and adam is a very flexile guy.
    The server where I am is fast (dual processor with raid) and very stable.
    From where i live (portugal) i got 50 ms reply ... so it was a good choice for me.

    With regards to those companies, I have heard of both UKWSD and KDA - I haven't hosted with either, but from the looks of things, they both provide a flawless service. They both hold fort on and : very nice chaps

    Angry KDA hosting

    I recently opened an account with KDA, I ordered the K100 Special. When I finished ordering an automated message was sent confirming my placed order. Nearly two weeks later, during which a polite email was sent querying my order, I received an email with my account details.

    However the price I was to be billed had changed from 117.50 (100 for package including 1 years domain registration plus VAT) to 135.07.

    I have sent an email enquiring about this, but still have not received any response. In light of this I have now suspended my account, and will now switch to either united hosting, or maybe webconexion, since United hosting is much cheaper, and I have had a good experience with webconexion previously.

    I have found out the reason for for the price increase since, it was listed in my billing profile on the control panel. I was being charged for domain registration, which I can swear by was supposed to be included with the package, or at least that was the impression the I was given when opening the account. I am very careful to check these things (I hold my money tightly since I don't have very much of it), so I can safely say that it was them not saying it, rather than me mis understanding. Besides the final figure at the end of registering put the total at 117.50.

    So to summarize: Very slow account opening, Very slow or no response from customer queries, and unclear billing/hidden extra costs.

    I would not recommend them to anyone, and I hope this review does make a difference.
