Customer Testimonials

Winner: Best in Western Europe - Nicereply Customer Happiness Awards

In a world where web hosting companies seem to be solely focussed on attracting as many clients as possible and offering pretty basic (at best) customer service, Layershift excel in being able to provide truly personable and fast customer service.

When your business is your web site, like it is for us, knowing there are true experts on hand 24/7 to help when things go wrong is priceless. I have recommended Layershift so many times and will continue to do so.

Founder & CEO - Shiply

The Jelastic platform we are on is amazing - it provides us with a simplified toolset backed up by truly awesome scalable technology - the perfect mix for us - and it is proving to be incredibly cost effective to boot. We are paying no more here than we ever did in traditional hosting, with the added benefit of having portability, scalability and flexibility at our fingertips. Layershift's Jelastic platform offers BlueBox a fantastic toolset to scale and control costs -...

Paul de Villiers
Director & Lead Developer - The BlueBox

We design, develop and manage websites for a number of high profile clients, whose web presences are crucial to their business. With Layershift we can be confident that we have the resources to host all types of websites for them. We originally started on a shared server and upgraded to our own dedicated server to give us more capacity. Layershift's managed hosting option lets us concentrate on the things we are good at without having to worry about our servers,...

Tom Clark
Web & Digital Developer - Distraction

Layershift was recommended to us a few years ago when we were looking for fast, reliable servers and infrastructure and top rate support, and they have more than lived up to that reputation. Their engineers are knowledgeable, efficient and very helpful, and often go way beyond the call of duty to help us.

It's hugely reassuring to be able to leave our server management in such expert hands, and Layershift's consistently exceptional service means we can rely on...

Gary Baker
Founder & CEO - Swagger & Swoon

I've been running my web design business now for over 10 years, and it's only this year I've moved away from Fasthosts. The difference is incredible.

When I came to set up an SSL cert for one of my sites - something I've always found painful and fiddly in the past - Cristina made everything so easy.

I was guided to the most appropriate solution for my needs, with all costs clearly explained and approved before orders were raised, and then everything was...

Garry Crick
Director - Kent Web Host, Luno Ltd

Apart from the usual teething problems, it's all gone really well and we would like to say a big thank you to you and the tech support guys who are brilliant.

The servers seem to be much faster and it's very re-assuring to know you're on hand to help.

Alison Fraser - Your Name Here Ltd

I have used Layershift for our business hosting since 2008. I find their service reliable, their prices competitive and their support excellent.

I use a number of hosting services for various projects but have found none compare to the quality I receive from Layershift which is the reason I continue to use them day after day for my core business operations.

Dominic Goode
Director - Bludelta

You know when you are dealing with a well run company, and these people are as good as it gets. Well priced, helpful, highly skilled and really available 24/7/365.

We chose their fully managed service which turned out to be a wise decision. We have made extensive use of their tech support team who have helped us on many occasions where others had drawn a blank.

Julian Deghy
Director - Photographer London

Layershift is our most trusted supplier for one reason - reliability and going the extra mile. They are always there and respond in a considered and pro active way to every request whether its at 3am or 3pm, Sunday or Tuesday. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Rob Smith
Strategy Director - Blueleaf

Victor and the rest of the team always provide the best service whenever I put in a support request. Fast, efficient, and done properly.

Layershift offer by far the best support of any hosts I have used, which is why I always recommend them to clients. Thanks guys.
