Frequently Asked Questions
Do your packages allow me to host multiple websites on the same account?
Yes, all of our packages allow you to host additional domains and websites on the same account. How many you’ll be able to host will depend on what solution you’ve chosen. You can host anywhere from 2 domains right though to unlimited domains. They’re easy to add too via cPanel’s add on domain feature.
Is it possible to upgrade my web hosting package half way through a billing period?
This is actually quite common. We simply ask you to pay the difference between the packages on a pro-rata basis. So for example if you’re being billed monthly and you wish to upgrade half way through the month, you’d simply pay half of the price of the higher package. You’d then be billed as normal on going.
Is there a reason you don't offer unlimited disk space with any of your hosting solutions?
First and foremost it is very rare that someone would need an unlimited amount of disk space. We’re aware that other website hosting companies offer this but it tends to be somewhat of a fake sales pitch. Some hosting companies will tout unlimited disk space but limit you to a maximum amount of files. Or they’d restrict you based on file type so typically large files such as zip archives, music or videos wouldn’t be allowed. Or they simply restrict you on the individual file size itself. All of these restrictions are designed to stop you using a significant amount of disk space. HostPresto have no restrictions of this nature, we prefer to be up front. We offer a fixed disk size and you’re effectively free to do as you please with it.
It says you're a UK hosting company, does that mean your web servers are located in the UK?
Yes, all of our servers are housed in a state of the art data centre located in Maidenhead. Our support team is also based in the UK and we’re a fully registered UK private limited company. We even pay all of our UK taxes.
If I host my domain with HostPresto, does that allow me to have my own e-mail address?
Yes, and not only that, with all of the hosting packages at HostPresto we offer unlimited e-mail accounts. So you’re free to create as many POP3/IMAP/Webmail accounts as you like. This also includes forwarders and catch alls. There are no restrictions whatsoever. We also offer powerful anti-spam software on all plans and packages.
I want to resell your hosting services - is that an option?
Of course, we offer a range of reseller hosting solutions designed to suit any level as reseller. All of them come fully managed and fully loaded with WHM (web host manager) and cPanel for each individual account. They also feature full package and quota management so you can define exactly what each package has at its disposal in terms of features and resources.
I am not sure your hosting packages will be enough for my site - what else do you offer?
Given we own and operate our own web servers we can pretty much create any solution you desire. We host a lot of clients who have completely bespoke enterprise level solutions. HostPresto is currently hosting some of the highest traffic websites in the UK on fully custom hosting solutions. If you’d like to know specifically what we could do for you then please get in touch with us.
Do you charge extra for additional bandwidth? I run a high traffic website.
There are no bandwidth charges at HostPresto whatsoever. All of our hosting and server packages come with unlimited bandwidth as standard. We actually encourage high traffic websites to host with us. You will never get an over bandwidth charge at the end of the month with HostPresto!
Do you only offer website hosting? I just need my domain for personalised e-mail.
We have a vast array of dedicated e-mail hosting solutions here at HostPresto. All of them come feature loaded with powerful spam protection, webmail, unlimited e-mail forwarders, mailboxes and more. You can also host multiple domains and control all aspects of your e-mail accounts via the popular and powerful control panel – cPanel.
How do you offer your service so cheap in comparison to other UK web hosts?
Our mission is to provide a premium quality web hosting service for some of the cheapest prices in the UK. There are many reasons we’re able to do this. Primarily it’s because we’ve invested heavily in our own hardware in the early days which means we have no expensive hardware lease charges like other UK web hosts. This means we can pass those savings onto our customers.
How much do you charge to backup my data?
We don’t charge for this at all. We offer a free daily backup of your entire account. And we don’t just backup your website. We also backup all of your e-mail accounts, your website statistics, your databases and everything related to your account itself. We take a complete snapshot. You can even restore as far back as 3 months ago!
Long time customer!
"I hosted my first site with HostPresto back in 2011 when they were then known by their previous name, Dream Hosting. Since then I’ve setup countless more sites, migrated to a reseller plan and now I’m on one of their cloud VPS plans. The service quite simply is second to none. There is a reason I choose to stick with these guys year in year out and that reason is simple. They’re the best at what they do."
"Finding a true UK web hosting company is actually quite rare. Lots of companies are based out of the UK but make use of cheaper American hardware and data centers. Thankfully, that is not what HostPresto are about. They claim they offer a premium service at a cheap, affordable price and that couldn’t be more true. You will not go far wrong with the folks let me assure you of that."
"There are lots of companies claiming to offer a reputable hosting service, some are legit, some are fly by night providers. HostPresto have been hosting websites for 15 years and it shows. Each time I’ve had an issue with my site, the support team have been on it within minutes and there has not been a single occasion in 3 years of service where the issue has not been resolved. For that, I thank you. Top service!"
