Not satisfied

Installed wordpress, chose a template, didn't even finish editing the homepage within 5 days and already reached max 5 gig of outbound local traffic. Scam site just wants you to upgrade to a paid plan.

Poor Service rating

I signed up and have done a great deal of work on the site. Then I hit the 5GB limit. I think they are counting more than reality. I know how much I have uploaded and downloaded and it looks to me the count is double the real amount. So my account was blocked. They offer a $2 per year plan for the first year. So I took it, paid, and waited, and waited. 48 hours later I wrote to their support. Then I got a message that they don't offer that plan to my geographic area, gave me a refund, and said I violated their TOS and deleted my account! I lost all the work I have done, well, if I have not done a download of all the data before. And that is exactly how I knew they overcount my traffic. My whole download was 200MB, and I saw the increase in counted traffic by more than 400MB.

Award should not be apart of their name! rating

While building the website, it was shut down when I was almost completed because it had too much traffic! No Cpanel access and no access to my file manager unless I purchased more. Great concept! Kidnap my files and ask for more money! &*(*(^%$$###^^

Andrew: Reviewer Country With the free plan we offer 5GB of monthly traffic and the account in question was suspended for exceeding this limit with 2GB (total of 7GB used). Access to the files also consumes traffic, so that is the reason access was suspended temporarily, until the beginning of the next month.

Very happy customer! rating

I am a website designer and I've been using Awardspace for since around 2006-07 or so. I have been more than happy with the services offered by Awardspace. Support questions were ALWAYS answered within minutes and I've not experienced any serious down-times. The hosting control panel is great (even on slow connections), and their online file manager is even better with many options. I have recommended many people to use Awardspace and will continue to do so.

The best hosting service i've used rating

Award space is a great hosting service and i've used it for 2 years now, their support team is the best i have seen in my life, the uptime is very good, the server speed is awesome, the only downside is the limit of mysql even after i upgraded.

Faultless hosting rating

I have been with them for a couple of years and I have nothing but praise for awardspace. They are hosting my simple php site without me paying them and they require no ads, they seldom suffer downtime (checked with pingability)what else do I want? I am happy with them and would recommend them to anyone. Granted, I don't open tickets, I have never tried to contact them either, but here's no need for me to do so.

GloriaPerezMolina: Reviewer Country Yo he usado awardspace por varios a?os y nunca he tenido problemas ni con ellos ni con el sistema. Lo recomiendo. En un comienzo lo us? gratis y luego les compre otro plan. Lo recomiendo

It's All Good rating

Overall: I've been using AwardSpace for 2 years now. The UI is very nice and intuitive and you can customize it by moving widgets around to your liking. The Zacky installer works perfectly and I've used it to install several WP sites without a glitch. Server Speed: Before I renewed my hosting I wanted to know if the loading time was good so I downloaded app.telemetry Page Speed Monitor (a Firefox extension). I've done many tests and I can say that my pages load very quickly. Although I'm on shared hosting I'm on par with one of my favourite websites. I did the tests on pages containing similar content i.e. videos, text etc Server Uptime: I can't recall that my site has been down. So no troubles here. Support Service: The staff on support have always been very quick to reply. They give friendly and concise answers and they write perfect english. When there's an issue they can usually fix it quickly. Very competent people.

outrageous to call it a serious hosting rating

After 2 years, 27 domains registered or transferred more than 50 open tickets and uptime that is unacceptable .... finally we go! Two years were terrible, from the technical point of view, a lot of problems with e-mail, sites down one day, and another one as well ... But the best is the slogan "unlimited everything!" Good joke, for there is unlimited only 20% of the power of space. Nice space if you have 1 singular static html website; Do not buy here!!

Andrew: Reviewer Country We indeed had some problems with the servers throughout the years, but we were always trying to notify you and give you on point explanations. There were 63 tickets opened by you, while just 6 are for downtime, sometimes on scheduled server maintenance, where we strictly informed all affected accounts 1 week earlier.

Andrew: Reviewer Country We also need to mention that you left our service, because you were banned due to almost 2 months of server abuse. This server abuse actually resulted in multiple server timeouts during this period.

Andrew: Reviewer Country We didn't disable your account, despite the fact you breached our service, because we believe bad things can happen to anyone. Unfortunately when the same problem rises constantly for 2 months, we cannot tolerate that.

Andrew: Reviewer Country We tried assisting you with your website issues as much as we could, but unfortunately the regular management of softwares and plug-ins of your websites is not part of the service included in the hosting package, at least for now.

Richie: Reviewer Country We wish you good luck with your next hosting provider and hopefully they will be able to meet your expectations

Good host:) rating

These guys are pretty good at everything! Enjoying so far:)

Really Pleased rating

Have been using awardspace now since the start of my company and i'm really pleased with the service provided, the servers are 99.9% of the time and i cant complain. The servers can be a little slow sometimes but thats to be expected in a smaller company so It's something I can live with. All my clients are happy with the service and we will continue to use as we expand. Thanks 5*****

My name as a domain- free! rating

With a little searching I found an extension which has my name available, and free accounts! They have just updated the file manager and it's really great now! Only not so many hits per month are allowed, but that is fine for a small personal website. :-/

Excellent service rating

I have used both free and paid. There service is topnotch, they do have ocasional downtime but they do get everything up and running pretty quick. I will definately recomend them for both free and paid, I converted over to paid service,. I do wish they would allow cache and other small details.

Vin: Reviewer Country We offer 1 h response time even on the free hosting. We do not have an account with email address [email protected]. Our support even persist 30 min and less on response time. This is the average resp. time for the last months. The review is fake.

Nelson: Reviewer Country I have to agree. They are very fast with email support and super friendly. The main reason i switched from free to pay infact

Free web hosting rating

Yes it is good free web hosting service provided by the awardspace company. As this company provides 24*7 hrs service. And it is a reliable & best company as compared to other Hosting company.

Too much downtime rating

I don't know if they keep attention to their free hosting plans. I have a lot of downtime and sometimes cannot enter my account for days. This is very disturbing :(

By Tamiko Reviewer Country July 24 2013 Add Comment | Report Fake

Mahmoud: Reviewer Country the free hosting plan not good but the paid host is very good, just try it ;)

Always down

We have no complaints regarding the price of Awardspace. It's very affordable. However, the servers are frequently down. Once every 2-3 (sometimes daily) our site is down for an hour or two, which for a paid service provider, no matter how cheap, is very poor. Overall a 4 or 5 out of 10. Very affordable but the downtime really messes things up for us sometimes - theres only so many times we can apologize to the people that use our site

Awardspace is great! rating

I am using the free edition for markasoftware.getenjoyment.net and it is great! I don't have much images or video, so the 250mb limit is fine. I have searched through several other free providers, but this one is the only one that met up to my needs. It is really great, and I am considering moving to the basic plan sooner or later.

sodikin: Reviewer Country like this

Must Use Registered Domain

From what I can see, this host looks like a very good one. It was easy to create an account, their automated signup/confirmation email came fast, and they seem to have all the basic tools anyone with moderate intelligence can learn to use to set up a free website. However, I must clarify that I closed the account before even using it. Why? Because I could not upload my website files without already having a registered domain set up. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be a problem, especially considering how inexpensive domains are. But, for reasons I won't get into, I don't want to have a registered domain for this particular site. I thought AwardSpace would, by default, have a domain for my site, such as http://mysite.awardspace.com or www.awardspace.com/mysite. But this isn't the case. In any event, if you want to set up a website, and you don't want to pay for an official domain, then look elsewhere. Otherwise, awardspace would probably be a good host.

By Tom Reviewer Country December 14 2011 Add Comment | Report Fake

Richie: Reviewer Country AwardSpace offers Free Subdomains. Got to the Subdomain Section f your control panel. There you can register a free subdomain exactly like you mentioned it.

Lucien: Reviewer Country Subdomain option has been disable since like 2010 on Awardspace; in additions, they don't accept free domains like Tk, Cu.cc, Smartdots, etc., either.

Limit on outgoing Emails rating

I like AwardSpace.com generally, but there are a couple of things that bug me. 1) You are entitled only to 30 outgoing E-mails each month. I use them up in a few days and then I can't send any more E-mails till the first of the next month. 2) Loading of my site is very slow sometimes. And I have a very small site with small images. 3) Owners aren't flexible. They point out a lot that you have a free account and therefore are not eligible for other options. I felt like I am asking for a handout. Steven
