    Anyone recommend reliable UK VPS?

    Hi,
    Can anyone recommend a reliable UK VPS company - somebody likely to be around for a few years and not some fly by night merchant.
    Currently paying 35 a month - so where around that price ideal but would pay more.
    Hosting approx 60 sites with 20 of those being wordpress.
    Thanks
    Tel

    For a managed server I will recommend SolaDrive.com, since you don't list any specifications I think their OpenVZ Corporate plan will meet your budget.
    If you use one of their promotion coupons, the price will be even better.

    VPS.net is worth looking at.
    Three out of four people make up 75 percent of the population

    If those mysql sites are intensive you might want to look at using XEN or KVM for better reliability and to control your processes better as its more contained. 1-2GB Ram should do you just fine depending on how resource intensive each site is though. I definitely would recommend using cPanle over Direct Admin though.

    I would personally stay clear of VPS.net as I've heard a few bad reviews about them.

    Your budget is actually very reasonable and for around 35-40 per month you can get a very good Fully Managed VPS package in the UK perfect for your specs.

    Other than the WordPress sites, do you have any other special requirements?

    Bearing in mind the topic is for a reliable UK VPS, I would focus your energy on a company with fanatical support.

    This means that if anything where to go wrong, you can either get in contact with them and have them fix any issues straight away, or better still, rely on them to pro-actively monitor your machine and resolve problems before you even notice them.

    Essentially, what I am saying is that promises of 100% uptime and great SLAs isn't necessarily everything because if something does go wrong and their support is nowhere to be seen, you'll be stood there looking a little foolish.

    Hi,
    I have been trialing vidahost (as in your sig) but their custom cpanel does not offer anywhere the ease of use I require from Direct Admin!
    Support and price 10 out of 10 but functionality would only be a 1 for me.
