5quid host was aquired by TSO Host and now it is part of TSO. Read our TSO Host Review instead.

Simplicity - That is one of the best qualities of 5quidhost. If you visit their site here, you will notice that they are straight to the point. And to make it even more simple, everything with 5quidhost hosting plans is unlimited. The difference comes with the space. For 5p/month you get 1GB of space, which is more than enough to get you started and then for 10p/month you can upgrade to unlimited space as well.

Buyers confidence - 5quidhost is one of the few companies that offers a FREE plan. You can test their service at the maximum without purchasing anything. The free accounts are limited to 1 database and only 50MB of space, but that is enough to get up and running a WordPress or Ghost blog and get a feel of the control panel and meet the support team and see if you like them.

Support - Another excellent advantage is the UK based support that is made of tech staff who are willing and capable of solving your issues. The first encounter with them is when they move your site from your old host for FREE and from that point you just got to love them. Please note, VERY IMPORTANT: the support is great, but it is only trough email and the form on their site. If you are the person who likes to call or chat at the moment and want their problem resolved at the moment, this is not the web hosting provider for you. Please consider that!

Overall 5quidhost runs on a fast machines based in the UK, so the loading times to your audience will be also fast. We have tested their Cpanel Linux plans and they are perfect for any PHP platform - Joomla, Wordpress or Magento.

To sum it up, 5quidhost made it in our list of best UK web hosting providers because they have unlimited features, free testing of the service, capable inhouse tech support and are trusted by their customers.
