As told by one of our customers…
About 8 years ago I was running from one low cost hosting company to another and all the time I ran into problems with absolutely no support, thankfully I had a friend from the UK who was more techie than I was at the time and he was my go to guy when I had a problem, one day I asked him to recommend a good hosting company with great support and he recommended a company based in Manchester. The company was expensive but he was correct the support was really good.
At the time I was running a website for a local company Tramore Surf School and I had a chance & brief encounter with the owner of Hosting Ireland, telling me he found our company online, a conversation ensued about websites and he asked me to give Hosting Ireland a go for my next website. A little time past and the Irish economy worsened and I became ever more conscience of supporting local businesses so I moved my own hosting to Hosting Ireland, I found Hosting Ireland brilliant, the knowledge, professionalism and passion the guys working their have for their company was amazing.
As time passed by I felt It was time to put my own technical knowledge to use and I started my own waterford website design company, initially I went with the reseller plan which gave me access to a shared server the price was cheaper than anything comparable offered in the rest of Ireland and the software worked great, it used CPANEL which I was already very familiar with and was compatible with most of the different CMS I was using including Joomla, WordPress, Magento and Drupal. As my company expanded I realised the need to establish my own hosting company (to make billing my customers easier) and I registered an account with WHMCS, this was a big step for me and also meant purchasing my first VPS which at this stage would be from Hosting Ireland, again from a quick research online I found the price was the best priced option for my business and I was happy to be continuing my relationship with Hosting Ireland.
Having never used a VPS before I found myself a little out of my depth but the team at Hosting Ireland did a great job of supporting me and the VPS till I got the hang of things. We purchased the VPS a year ago now and I am happy to say in our first year in business we setup over 60 websites (more than 1 a week) and are super happy with the service from Hosting Ireland.
I would recommend Hosting Ireland to any of my friends or customers because of their amazing support, quick response to support tickets, technical knowledge, passion in what they do and great price. Hosting Ireland is a great example of a company that does things the right way, they look after their customers and know how important good customer service is, in the 100 times I have called Hosting Ireland on the phone I do not think I ever waited anymore than 60 seconds for someone to answer the phone.
Hosting Ireland treats its customers like real people.

There’s lots of talk about Postcodes coming to Ireland and the latest is they will be here in the first quarter of 2015, another year away. No doubt this is good news for Ireland, especially if you’re dependent upon that important parcel delivery and have that nagging doubt in your mind that it might not get to you.
Online it different, getting a .ie domain means an address that everyone can find and people know it’s authentic. True a .ie domain name is a little harder to get than other domains names, but that is what is so great. If your a legitimate business with a RBN (Registered Business Name) number or have a Company Registration Number then it’s easy…
Alternatively you might have a legitimate claim to the domain because your a charity or association and in most cases a claim letter will provide the necessary information for your .ie domain name to be registered to you.
If you have any questions about .ie domain name registration ask our team by calling 1890 987000
Register your .ie domain name here.

Recently there has been letters sent out to Irish businesses from ‘Data Assortment Ireland’ requesting confirmation of information and requesting credit card details to pay a fee of €958.00.
We advice our customers to read any small print carefully.
This letter has originated from Germany and has no relationship with the IEDR – .ie Domain Registry, Data Protection Commissioner or ourselves. It has nothing to do with your domain name, website or hosting.
This is very similar to a letter sent out a few years ago from an organisation in Germany for a business listing on a German company’s database.
