With over 20 years experience in the Internet hosting market, FidoNet is ideally suited to helping you and your business prosper. Here’s what a few of our customers had to say about us.
Forbidden Planet International (FPI) is a world leader in the sale & distribution to individual collectors, of Movie and TV related, Science Fiction & Pop culture merchandise, collectibles, and books. FPI run several web sites, the premier one of which is http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk Our sites were hosted in the USA. On review we found that housekeeping regimes had not ben performed, redundant files littered the server and security holes existed. We decided to transfer all ten sites, allied mail servers, and all data to the UK. After an extensive search, and interrogating several candidates we chose Fido.Net as the host. The entire transfer was carefully planned, a full copy of everything was implanted on Fido servers and checked for compatibility. Some of the programmes had to be upgraded and re-integrated. When it came time to complete the actual transfer and upgrade, Fido were superb. I’d like to single out Jon Morby and Cliff Stanford especially. Most of the problems encountered were due to very poor housekeeping. Those two were always on call. They worked with us over a weekend and through the early hours of several days to solve the inherent problems we both found. Finally ensuring a full and complete working install. This experience prompted me to request that Fido.Net personnel review our sites with a brief to improve the Customer experience and streamline the operations. Again they have come through. Their initial recommendations have been implemented. Other long term goals are now in planning and test mode on a development copy of the site. All in all, for dedication, perseverance, knowledge and application, I would unhesitatingly recommend Fido.Net

So much more reliable than Office365! I love Fido Apps!! Great value for money!
I have been hosting my mission critical web sites on a dedicated server with Fido.Net for many years now, and clients’ sites for several years before that, and I have been continuously impressed by the hardware’s performance and the team’s knowledge and approachability. My website streams and serves crisp HD video to thousands of users. It does this from a server setup purpose-configured by Fido.Net themselves with no extra intervention on my part. Software upgrades happen transparently in the background, and I’m safe in the knowledge that everything is constantly monitored. For high performance hosting in the UK I would look no further than Fido.Net.
Simple, effective and reliable! We’ve tried other systems and none came close to Fido’s service and simplicity! Easy to use interface and friendly staff. I can highly recommend these guys! A superb service, with fast delivery and easy to use control panel.
We moved our biggest customer to Fido over a year ago, since then the site has had a 100% uptime record – no outages, no reboots and as a result a very happy customer..
Firebuy Ltd is the Non-Departmental Government Body (NDPB), responsible for specialist procurement within the Fire and Rescue Service. Firebuy Limited’s initial needs were the provision of a robust and reliable platform which would allow Senior Managers to operate the business whilst out in the field and globally, and also allowing them to remain an integral part of the office even when several hundred miles away from it. FidoNet beat stiff competition from a number of considerably larger competitors to win this prestigious contract; based upon the technical merits of the solutions and not principally on the price. In close consultation, FidoNet identified the needs for a unified messaging service and distributed working environments, and were successful in winning the contract to supply services to the National Procurement Division (FireBuy). Firebuy Limited has purchased the following services from FidoNet since 2005: 1. the provision of server management, 2. the provision of an IT infrastructure to support remote working facilities, and 3. the provision of mobile / data access solutions. To date FidoNet has responded to all of our customer requirements in a flexible and helpful manner. Since the engagement by Firebuy Limited, FidoNet has developed an integrated electronic communication system and has provided Firebuy Limited with a service that has been maintained 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week to ensure continuous operability of the system.
My office is running like clockwork since we moved to Fido’s mail service. My staff know what they’re doing, I know where they are and they all have access to their emails on their phones and laptops. Simple and cost effective! Worth very penny!
100 million paid mailboxes worldwide can’t be wrong. This is an amazing platform and leaves the competition standing!
We use Fido for bandwidth and colocation and cannot fault them in the slightest. We’ve never had any outages and both planned maintenance and support requests are efficiently communicated and actioned by their highly trained team of engineers.
Hosting has been 100% uninterrupted and the intuitive Control Panel has made admin simple and straightforward. Queries been resolved quickly and efficiently by the support staff.
