Fan St. began in 2006 because I was tired of free fansite hosts who required ever increasing amounts of advertising, and because I needed somewhere to host my web design clients.

Nearly 10 years later I’m still providing cheap web hosting to some of the same customers who joined me right at the start. I always give you the lowest price I can. I’m not trying to get rich off this so I just cover my costs and I pass those savings on to you. There’s a proper technical support team who help if things get tricky but after more than 15 years of my own fansites and business websites there’s not much I haven’t seen especially when it comes to WordPress or Coppermine hosting.

So if you’re tired of big web hosting companies or advertising-funded fansite hosting, I hope you’ll find a suitable home here with us and here’s to the next 10 years of Fan St!

So what are you waiting for?
 

Questions?

 

How can you be so cheap?

When you buy from a big name company, you’re not just paying for your hosting, you’re also paying for the number of staff they employ, their office space, their marketing and all of that other stuff.

Fan St. isn’t a big business trying to make loads of profit; it’s just me and my assistant, we work from home and our marketing is by word of mouth. So we can’t always give 24/7 support, but in nearly 10 years that’s not been a problem and most customers get a response within 6 hours. There’s a technical support team I can call if I can’t help you, but I do a lot of the support myself which means my prices can be much cheaper.

I have X number of sites, do I need to buy the City plan more than once?

Nope. The City plan is just one price to host as many sites as you like. You tell us the domain names, we set them up. You still pay the same amount no matter how bad your fansite addiction is.

Do you do transfers?

Transfers cost £7 per site. This is a new service we’re offering so prices might change in future. To ask about a transfer, please open a ticket. If you’re doing a transfer yourself and get stuck we will still help you figure it out for free!

Can I pay by PayPal?

You can but the page is a bit bare at the moment whilst we’re sorting out the workflow/process. If you can use the normal method it really helps us out but we get that some people prefer PayPal. You can pay with PayPal in pounds (GBP) at the normal prices or you can see if the US Dollar or Euro prices are better for you.

Do you host collectives or other types of site?

Yes! We’ve got collectives, personal blogs, and company websites on our servers.

Why do I need my own domain name?

Fan St. doesn’t sell domains because I don’t believe in having your hosting and your domain name with the same company. Also unlike for hosting, big name companies actually offer domains cheaper than we can, so it benefits you to buy elsewhere. I get my domains from Namecheap because they offer cheap domain names with free whoisguard so you can keep your details private (this is an affiliate link which means we get a bit of money from the sale at no extra cost to you).

What does ‘Unlimited’ actually mean?

You’ll have all the space you need to store your files, and you’ll never have to worry about traffic limits but we do ask you to comply with our terms and conditions about acceptable use.

Do you host WordPress video archives?

Yes. You can host video as long as it is for display on your website (so you’re not just using it as file hosting). Video can be quite demanding though so super busy sites (over 1000 sessions/day) might find themselves using too much of the server resources.

My sites were slow on Site5, will they be slow on Fan St?

Probably not. If you host more than one fansite with Site5, they all affect each other. So if you’ve got 1 really busy site, it can make all the others slow. On Fan St. all of your sites are treated separately (even on the same payment plan). So a really busy site won’t affect your other sites. We host on a cloud network with hundreds of servers linked together, so your sites probably aren’t even on the same physical server.
