Lee Attwood

Most companies that have those cheap hosting packages as advertised on TV do not offer the same level of support I have had from Pickaweb.

We can find our way round most things but the Pickaweb´s online chat is the most helpful tool to hand. It’s very rare that a problem can’t be solved in minutes via their online chat.

Customer Testimonials

After so many troubles with other webhosting companies in the past, I really love working with Pickaweb, their customer support is always available, easy to contact and sort out things quickly.

Céline Bourillot

I've been with Pickaweb for a number of years and they are not only efficient with running the hosting and domains but are also proactive in sending out tips and other useful information including a book on how to make the most of your website. Their helpdesk also lives up to its name which is unusual with lots of web companies.

Brian Sceats

I have been a web developer for 18 years and this is the best hosting provider for reliability and support. 10/10!

Guy Houghton

Servers are servers - when it comes to business hosting it is support what really matters. I've run webdesign business for couple of years and I know most of companies on the market. I've been using Pickaweb for 3 years now and they never let me down. Tech support is amazing, always willing to go extra mile to ensure everything is OK. Pickaweb has the best UK tech support - this makes them no 1 provider.


This is the best hosting solution out there.

I have experience with several other companies and one thing is for sure - Pickaweb is the best amongst them. A very professional support always watching out for you that comes at a very competitive price: I couldn't be more satisfied.

I would rate it 10 stars out of 5 if I could.

Rebecca Smith

I would recommend Pickaweb to anyone looking for fast and reliable cloud hosting. Pickaweb offer an outstanding service at a competitive price. It is a pleasure to deal with their UK-based technical support staff who have managed to quickly solve any issue that I've thrown at them.

Robert Bradshaw

This is the best company I have ever known, just click on the chat button, and someone is there, and are most helpfull.
I previously hosted with another provider for some 7 years, and they never offered anything like Pickaweb's service.
If you need a hosting service look no further, you won't be disappointed.


This company is really dedicated to good customer service. I have been with them for about 18 months and they have helped so much with any problems I as a non expert have faced with my developing site. Some of the problems were definitely at my end but the support team handled them.
I would definitely recommend them.

Gnoname Atall

They may not be the cheapest host, but it does go to prove that you get what you pay for. I swapped to Pickaweb a couple of years ago after using one of the bigger hosts who promise unlimited space and bandwidth etc.

What the big hosts don't tell you is that their server performance is much slower because they host too many sites on their servers and that this has drastic effect on both your visitors experience and your google ranking.

Having researched the options, looking at customer reviews I chose to swap to Pickaweb and haven't regretted it once. I haven't had any problems with the site going offline and on the occasions I have had to seek technical support, Pickaweb have been both easy to contact and very quick to understand and resolve the issue. From my own experience I can't fault them at all and would recommend them to anyone.

Martin Slade

Pickaweb are honest, reliable, supportive and approachable. They are far and above the best of the hosting companies out there.


Excellent service. Very quick expert advice.

Web Hosting FAQs

The definition of web hosting, also known as website hosting or shared hosting allows you to have a website and email accounts for your business or personal use.

With a web hosting solution you store your website files on our servers and your site will then be available at all times.

You may have a web designer who has built a website for you which is now ready to be published and therefore need a hosting solution so that the site can be published and be available to the world.

You can also design your own website using the tools that come included in the service. (Website builder & 100´s of popular applications that you can install in just a click.)

When anyone types in www.yourdomainname.com, the published site will display.

If you need hosting space because you have been asked by your web designer you have come to the right place.

Pickaweb offers different options: shared hosting, reseller, vps and dedicated servers.

Most people will need just a shared package. It is the most basic and it is suitable for most websites.

If you ever outgrow the service you can always upgrade to a higher plan or go for a cloud hosting, vps or dedicated hosting.

Pickaweb is a leading web hosting company based in London, offering website hosting and domain names with exceptional levels of service and support.

Just because you are using Windows or Mac, it does not mean that your web site hosting needs to be the same. The system that your web host runs on its servers has nothing to do with the system you are running locally on eg your pc.

Linux is the most popular web server operating system. It has all the features that web designers are after.

You will need a linux hosting plan which is what we offer on this page unless your site needs a specific windows application.
