Yes and i encourgae anyone too use them there domain setups and control over domains is out of this world. They need too add something to help with billing but everything else in there control panel is cool.
Thanx for your reply.
2 or 3 questions :
How much the uptime of their server ? Is really that they have 99% of uptime ?
If you have a problem, does they answer to your mail quick ?
May you tell me one of your domain under fasthosts so I can test their line ? Even via e-mail if you want (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have talk with the support of the fasthosts.co.uk and this is my impression :
- the support answer in about 24/48 hours (it's ok for me)
- The unlimited space reseller account have theese limits :
2Gb/months trafic for every domain
10Gb/months trafic for the sum of the domains
you cannot exceed the limit of 10Gb/months AND/OR the 2Gb/months for the domain.
- you can have the personal DNS server at L. 100/moths but you cannot register on it american domain but only .co.uk domains.
This is too limitative for me right now.
If you have some more information i would be happy to know
I was unaware of the exact limits on the account, thanks for the information. I'm not likely to exceed those limits at the moment, but i'm not sure about the future. I don't want to commit for a year and then find it is not enought.
The Fasthosts website doesn't answer all my questions, and they don't seem to be responding to my email.
Have you ever had any problems contacting them ?
Basically I want to know the following (can anyone help with any of them):
1) How many database connections are you allowed ?
2) Do they have SQL Server 7.0 (does it cost more) ?
3) Can I have access to raw server logs ?
4) Can I do server-side XML processing (using MS XMLDOM) ?
I have seen all these offered by other companies. However what attacts me to Fasthosts is the free adding of additional domains, all other sites seem to just have a discount for new domains.
why why why choose an UK provider when you can get an US one for the 1/3 of the price? Other things are that UK providers tend to be "backwards" and "stuck" in their price structure (sometimes useless). I am in the UK and never will I choose an UK provider over an US one.
Ah, before you say. Because a provider is located in the US doesn't mean it's slow and useless.
A good UK provider but based in the US is ultraspeed.co.uk / ultraspeedUSA

Coreace, what package do you use on Ultraspeed.co.uk. I'm looking to host 3 seperate sites. With the Fasthosts reseller option these additional sites will not cost me anything to set-up. However, with Ultraspeed I need to pay an additional monthly fee.
An another UK provider dedicatedserver.co.uk and dedicated-servers.co.uk hosted in the UK and not abroad.
Allan, it's personal taste I have always used US ISP's and never have had any problems regarding "the hops" don't look blindly how many hops your server is. UltraSpeed is compared to the UK ISP's a decent contender, don't just look at the price itself give Jordan a ring he is based in London and I am sure he can be flexible to offer you a solution better than what you have found on their webpage.
No, I am not hosted with them and receive no credit. Good hosts don't come cheap i.e vservers.com have a high pricetag on their virtual accounts but whooo years in front of their UK cousines. Oh..well that is just me got this paranoia for UK ISP's and at some stage I was planning to run a similar service like F9's because I was tired of all these useless/incompetence services that floated around couple of years back.
Or I could host you myself but then again the server is in the US.
If you would like some options or advise in good providers UK/US please feel free to email me email@example.com Finding a good host can sometimes be a nightmare and one's good comment can be useless for an another. One's good experience may be different for an another... and so on
