http://www.fasthosts.co.uk / Worst web hosting company ever

BEWARE - read the small print - Fasthosts lure you into their ‘web’ with nice web hosting prices - LOOK very carefully - they say next year it will cost you double - it will, and they automaticallty charge you whether or not you want renewing unless you inform them - it’s in their terms.

Do a net search, you’ll find many people are unhappy with Fasthosts.

Their vulture like techiques at getting you to renew autromatically will be their failing. Don’t just tick the terms box - READ IT, otherwise it will cost you dearly, then they freeze your account and you have no access to other hosting accounts you have paid for.

So although it was all my own fault - QUESTION, do you want to use a webhosting company that uses agressive ways of getting your money? If they were so fantastic they would not need to. I’ve taken my business elsewhere.

    Hi, from time to time we run offers on our products. These are always displayed as per ASA guidelines in the UK which have recently become even stricter. I can categorically deny that we increase the cost of our hosting each year, added to that were we to do so we would send you an amended Terms of Service notification to your registered email giving you a minimum of 30 days in which to contact us and ask to leave. We now send renewal reminders 30 prior to the end of our contracts to ensure consumers such as you are not caught out. And as always billing terms and dates are available in the billing section of you control panel. If you'd like to discuss this more I'd urge you to contact our team on 0844 583 0777 to discuss.

    Utter ### / OPEN your eyes people and DO NOT TRUST COWBOYS FASTHOSTS!

    Follow @FasthostsShit on Twitter and read all his Tweets, Retweets and related links. Plenty of comments from unhappy, rippedoff and pissed off customers that had a CRAP service and their credit debit/credit card debited after they attempted to cancel the 1 year renewal TRAP. PLENTY OF EVIDENCE THAT CONTRADICTS FASTHOSTS UTTER PILE OF ###!

    SPREAD THE WORD - AVOID FASTHOSTS !
