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:
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!).
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.
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.
