Just like many actors in the game of web hosting, Easyspace started from the bottom, in 1997, and grew to be one of the largest web hosting companies in the UK. Their mission is directed towards the client, regardless of their level or web design and hosting knowledge, and they want to offer the best service possible by constantly improving their technology, uptime, and reliability.
Their business thinking doesn’t rely on offering the cheapest service, but the best value for businesses that need professionalism and efficiency. Easyspace invested heavily in infrastructure in the last few years, reaching the impressive number of 10 data centers based in UK. This way, their services offer great speed, security and uptime.
Although their main area of activity is occupied with shared hosting services, they also offer domain registration, email hosting, cloud hosting, ecommerce, dedicated servers and VPS hosting plans.
Hosting Plans & Features
The web hosting package includes features that make it great for sites that require a connection with a database, like WordPress sites usually do. The features that make the web hosting package a great pick for any type of user are as follows:
- Great database management and speed for the most modern web platforms
- Up to unlimited bandwidth and disk space with the right plan choice
- Free domain name – unless you decide to take advantage of their 7 Day Money Back Guarantee
- Up to unlimited databases and mailboxes with the right plan
- Free setup
- Backup & Restore included in the Business and WordPress packages
- Free FTP client
The site building tool is considered a separate service and the user can purchase various plans starting with €12.34/month. Even more, they have a special service called Pic ‘N’ Mix. This allows the user to build his/her customized package by selecting the operating system on the hosting server (Linux or Windows), and the amount of emails, databases and disk space necessary. The price for this package is calculated as the user performs the customization.

Bandwidth & Disk Space
According to the type of plan a user chooses, Easyspace will offer unlimited access to storage resources or not (the same as the Hosting.co.uk). The bandwidth is unlimited on any type of plan, as long as the site doesn’t abuse the existing resources. The company has the possibility to support high loads of data traffic, due to their 10 data centers, but there are other options available for an increased traffic of data like the dedicated servers or the VPS.
Reliability & Support
The service is reliable as the company promises 100% uptime. According to tests, they manage to keep their promise, offering a safe and reliable online environment for a wide variety of sites.
The support team is based in UK and is available 24/7, allowing people from all over the world to get in contact. The contact channels available are phone (extra charge and only active during business hours), email and the ticketing system available after login. There is also a comprehensive knowledge database and self-help user guides.
A user must be very careful with the Easyspace renewal policy because they will not send any notifications before charging the payment method. The renewal is automatic and discussions with support on this matter are not always successful.
Ease of Use
They offer three platforms dedicated to site building: the regular site builder, the e-commerce builder and the mobile site builder. Each is charged separately, but they are all modern and easy to use.
- Amazing site building tools
- Extensive knowledge database
- Clear feature distributions among packages
- The possibility to customize your packages
- By adding feature, the submission can be quite expensive
- The renewal is automatic and they don’t notify
- The website builder is charged separately
Easyspace seems like a reliable and efficient web hosting company that promises to continue developing. They are serious in their actions and their orientation towards client satisfaction creates great offers.
