    Looking for a new hosting provider (UK) - can you help?

    So, my VPS provider is unfortunately closing up shop at the end of the month, which means I need to find a new home (quickly)! I'm a n00b when it comes to server admin, so I need a provider that is able to help me transfer from my old service to the new one. Ideally, I'm looking for a service provider that's been established for at least a year or two.

    This is what I'm running at the moment:
    Cent OS 5.6 with Webmin/ Virtualmin. Apache, Postfix, Dovecot, BIND and a few other bits.

    These are the specs that I need:

    1Gb RAM
    2 IPs
    UK-based data centre

    I'm happy to do most things myself, so I'm not necessarily looking for a managed service, but if you can offer informal help and advice on occasion, that would be a bonus.

    At the moment, I'm paying around 9/ $15 per month with my provider. If you can offer something for the same (or less!) I'd be happy with that, as I'm really on a tight budget (hosting comes out of my food budget!).

    So, can you help?

    Have you checked the burstnet.eu? I just ordered their service. Seems that they are old company in USA, new provider in EU, but I don't believe, that they are planning to close their business in next few years in EU. Their price isn't the lowest, but not the highest too.

    Do some googling.

    Hi

    Are you also looking for a uk company/uk call centre support??

    Do you use CPanel at the moment as it may make it easier for you to move your vps websites over

    It doesn't necessarily have to be a UK-based provider - just that they have a UK-based data centre. I've never made use of telephone support, as I'm quite happy with just using email support. To be honest, I don't often raise a support ticket.

    I don't use cPanel (the licence is a cost I can live without), but Webmin and Virtualmin are used instead - Virtualmin allows the export of virtual servers (as well as the import of cPanel accounts).

    Bandwidth isn't much of an issue for me at the moment, so I'm not expecting a large amount of it as part of any service I can sign up to.
