Streamline.net Web Hosting Review

Streamline.net Web Hosting Review

Located in the UK, Streamline.net got its start in 1999 as a diversification of its main company, Dollamore Limited. Not only does this company host web sites for clients but it also is involved in charity work. To that end, Streamline.net discounts its web hosting fee by 50% to any registered charity that decides to utilize their services.

Reliability (3/5)

★★★☆☆

Streamline.net touts its services as exceedingly stable and secure. The hosting company uses several internet providers and has backups in place to maximize the hosting company’s overall stability. Not much regarding the actual data center or servers that the company has in place can be garnered at its web site. Additionally, recent reviews indicate that the web hosting company may have some issues with up-time capabilities.

Price Value (4/5)

★★★★☆

Web hosting packages with Streamline.net start as low as £2.99 per month and max out at £99.99 per year. All accounts come with a free domain name or transfer, a huge amount of free credits to be used for advertising at Google, MSN and Mirago, and are all created with no setup fee. Scripting needs are covered with all accounts being equipped with PHP or ASP (depending upon OS choice), MySQL or MSQL databases, Perl CGI and Python (Linux OS hosted accounts only). While offering a great deal for very little money, the pricing setup of Streamline.net can easily confuse even an expert web hosting customer. Careful perusal of the pricing setup of Streamline.net would be prudent prior to choosing an account. One nice feature is all web hosting accounts come with unlimited amounts of monthly bandwidth. Also, if one is a bit nervous or uncertain of what may be needed in as far as web hosting, Streamline.net offers a 3 month free trial with unlimited amounts of web space and bandwidth.

Control Panel (3/5)

★★★☆☆

Streamline.net touts an easy to use control panel but does not offer much else in information regarding which control panel program they use for their web hosting clients. The web site indicates it allows for easy administration of a web site and not much else.

Customer Support (4/5)

★★★★☆

The support area of Streamline.net offers a toll-free 24×7 telephone line to call for support as well as a separate link to the main support center for the company. At this main support center one will find a knowledge base and FAQs to help if assistance is required. Beyond this, Streamline.net indicates that logging into ones account will garner further support through a support ticket system. Overall, the support section is about average for any web hosting provider similar in capacity.

Overall Value (3/5)

★★★☆☆

Based on a severe lack of information with regard to reliability, which control panel is used or preferred and an average customer support channel, Streamline.net comes out slightly below most web hosting providers offering similar web hosting deals and setups. The web hosting company’s site could stand a major overhaul with regard to providing more information for the potential web hosting client.

For a limited time, Streamline.net is offering new web hosting clients their first month’s web hosting fee absolutely free.
