Every time I called the customer service I got different answers. People were rude and unhelpful. And it's not possible to update your website through FTP if you are in Taiwan, Hong Kong or China, and they wouldn't admit it, kept saying something wrong on my end, until I tried and tested everything. AVOID the service.

AVOID - Namesco will start your hosting at a modest fee then increase the payment to extortionate levels - Their customer care is Awful they will repeatedly close your "support ticket" as soon as possible , without ever resolving your concerns - Their customer service phone line is only effective in creating a huge phone bill charge for you the customer -No webchat available etc AVOID Namesco

Initially cheap to register but then extortion renewal charges.!! you also have to pay to transfer away your domain name. Who does this? they say its an admin charge however everything nowadays is automated, changing an IPS tags and unlocking a .com should attract an admin charge. Not recommended..

Avoid this company at all costs. Access to my email denied twice - on both occasions I made payment. Cut off twice while speaking with them now cant get through. No response by email. Now they are selling SSL as an additional service. My company is losing money because of these guys. I ve had a moonfruit website for about 10 years and initially email was included.

Hi Robert,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

I am really sorry that you have been disappointed with the service you have received lately and I would like to see if there is anything we can do make things better.

I believe I have found your account - could you let me know whether you are experiencing problems with your emails? If so, I will ask someone to be in contact with you.

In regards to the SSL Certificate, this is provided by Moonfruit. They should be available via Live Chat to help with this.

Thank you,
Terri

Awful company and I am ashamed I to say I used to work for them! The reason I left was the attitude of the staff to their customers, one or two are okay and try to help. Their atttitude is 'we have them signed up, what they gonna do if they don't like what we say'. The reason I left b cause more often or not I cringed at what I heard on the phone especially from the Domain Admin side and management. Believe me there are far better companies out there

This would be zero if I could give it.
email services down too often
The last 2 times it was down it was more than half a day. Now it's down again. How do you run a business with no email. As soon as I get a window of slacker time I'll be transferring to a more reliable provider

Would be zero star if i could. They absolutely suck, and i will be migrating all of my business to a new service provider asap. Basically, their domain registration service is too slow. I missed out on a prime domain because someone else registered it 10 hours after i did but managed to gazump me. Customer dis-service is arrogant and quite frankly useless. Avoid at all costs,

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.

Their customer service is lousy, their products are over-priced and they are not transparent about their pricing.

We were migrated over from UKServers and lost functionality that we were not told about. When we logged it as a technical problem they told us we had to upgrade to get that functionality back.

Will hold your domains hostage with large renewal and transfer fees, they are NOT transparent about pricing.

Has an antiquated control panel making it slow and awkward to manage your domain(s).

Will threaten you with legal action for defamation if you voice your opinion.

Would score 0 stars but this site will not let me.

When Namesco took over UKServers I have been forcibly off-line more than on-line. At random times throughout the day I will be said to be off-line. The last episode lasted from Sat 24 am to 10am today Sun 25.
Their phone helpline involves a 60 mins wait, although I now give up. It worked fine with UKServers. To be told (by them) that this wretched company is the biggest and best is the last straw. I suffered from the email 'bounce-back' they mention on their status page, which now reports gleefully "no incidents" for the past few days. Rubbish.

Do not purchase your domain names from here unless you are willing to page over the odds. If you decide later that you wish to move your domain names away to another provider it will cost you £12 inc vat. NO OTHER domain seller dupes you like this.

DO NOT BUY DOMAINS FROM HERE

Poor web builder. Got this as a simple members support site paid upfront for what was supposed to be a years cost then received monthly invoice. thought i'd try a new provider.
There is no where to delete domain and account. Unacceptable.
No email to confirm there will be subscription costs or additionals.

I own 2 other websites with one.com and all additional costs are confirmed up front, web builder is easy, customer support is almost instant. and they are cheaper too.

They charge £10 VAT per domain to transfer away from them... SHOCKING!!! after registering a domain i started receiving phone calls and emails from a company in India about web design and seo services which i did not request! i can conclude that names.co.uk had passed my contact details on! FURIOUS!!!

The other reviews I have just read are correct!

I have been paying a lot of money to names co to host my e mail account.

I got a call this morning saying that I had exceeded my storage and my e mail would be suspended immediately unless I paid the man money.

I suspected phishing / scam call. I logged into my control panel, and can find nothing there about storage, how much I am using, how much I am allowed, no upgrade options.

Then moments later, my e mail account is completely suspended.

Online queries takes more than 24 hours to be answered.

I am on hold now, for more than 46 minutes, just like the other posters, trying to get my business e mail to be working, worrying about my clients who are sending e mails and getting no replies from me! Incredibly bad for my business.

This is a company with incredibly awful support and dreadful practices, and even their online panel is incomprehensible.

Over three years, the e mail consistently doesn't run, because the SMTP main out and mail in ports and passwords just don't work very well with Apple Mail, and so iPads and phones and Mac computers just keep being unable to connect.

The frustration is awful and the lack of any support makes it even worse.

We were obliged to go to Namesco to be able to continue to use our demon email.
Then our email went off and no warning and I have tried for 2 days now to phone through and I have requested online support and no one answers.
This is the worst IT company I have ever used.
Do not use them if you do not have to.

We were obliged to go to Namesco to be able to continue to use our demon email. I was told before we signed up that we would get all the help we needed to set up our new e-mail accounts. THIS IS A LIE!!! It is SO frustrating. I've had 3 calls answered after 40 minutes each where the person was unable to help. I'm on hold at the moment - nearly an hour!!!!. Still not able to set up accounts on my computer. A complete disaster. I would give no stars 1 is too many!

If you value your online business then avoid this company. They are very keen to contact you to upgrade your hosting but then when they inadvertently delete your site and you try to urgently contact them, then you can't get through via online support, emails or especially on the phone. They don't care that because of their ineptitude, they leave your website down for 24-48 hours - loosing you valuable orders & your reputation. They don't answer the phone for half an hour while you are on hold & when they do they simply cut you off. Absolute nightmare company who simply don't care about their paying customers.

I am appalled as well at the after sale service I have received from Names.co.uk To sum up my recent experience my business was brought to it knees, their response was lame, and during the tenure of paid for SMTP service, my service was stopped so that their support team could do what they should have done before shutting me down which was to clear-fully check their records. I suspect someone in Names.co.uk has the job of drumming up more wallet share from existing customers. Maybe in their charter they are allowed to hold customers to ransom until they get more out of them but based on my experience, I will be moving to another provider soonest.
