Heart Internet Web Site Hosting Review

Heart Internet Review

Heart Internet is a UK based web hosting company with a data centre in Nottingham in the United Kingdom that offers web site hosting and domain name registration. They are owned by Host Europe, a company that operates in several countries in Europe – they also own 123 Reg in the UK. They offer reseller accounts for web designers and developers with a complete white label and customizable reseller hosting offering with unlimited hosting. The website hosting that is available is cloud based with shared hosting, virtual private servers (VPS) and dedicated servers. The Heart Internet  data centre is secure and has fire protection and redundant power supplies with standby generators.

There are 3 shared hosting plans the ‘Starter Pro’, ‘Home Pro’ and ‘Business Pro’ at £2.49 + VAT , £7.49 + VAT and £10.84+ VAT per month respectively. They only allow one web site on ‘Starter Pro’, ‘Home Pro’ and 3 websites on ‘Business Pro’. Also on the basic ‘starter pro’ package they also charge a setup fee of £10. There is a charge for 2Gb Mail Boxes with POP3 and IMAP of £10 per year and on 10GB Microsoft Exchange Mail Box there is a £10 per month charge. Virus scanning is included in the ’Business Pro’ package but costs an extra £19.99 per year on ‘Starter Pro’ and ‘Home Pro’. They don’t include the Website builder on the Starter Pro package either. When all of the extras are taken into consideration the shared hosting packages at Heart Internet are not the cheapest available compared to companies such as Hostgator, Go Daddy and others.

They don’t have the live chat and telephone support that can be found with other web hosting companies.

Conclusion

Heart internet is one of the most reliable website hosting companies in the UK which is one of the reasons that resellers keep using them.  The shared hosting is a bit more expensive than is available from some other web hosting companies and they have a number of chargeable extras which are included free by other companies. Also if your intention is to host more than one domain on the same account, other companies include this at no extra cost. However they are a reliable web hosting company and if you want to keep your website hosting in the UK then they are a good option.
