am new here and find this forum kind fo confusing i.e. can not find a thread about this that convinced me.
Am lookinf ro two hosts for new project, both should be .co.uk domains. They are my first british domains.
For one I just need a cheap host with a stable connection. Only html pages on there. I would need a .htaccess file to be working with though. relatively little traffic is enough for it, about 1 gig
For the second project I need a host that supports php, has a mysql database and supports .htaccess as well as mod_rewrite.
Would need about 5 gig here. Or for the start one gig and where I can update to a higher level after 6 months or so.
Do you know good ones that have all of these and are cheap?
Service would not be that imortant!
Does google when I go on google.co.uk and klick on pages from UK" the end of the URl or where it is hosted?
If it only cares about the ending that I would also accept a host in US!
Are there cheap ones there? With mySql Database?
Would I have to pay in $ and therefore get charged a lot because of changing money???
Google looks at the location of the host, not only the tld AFAIK. If you want to be found under "pages from the UK", you must have your site hosted in the UK on a UK server, and my advice is also to state your UK address and telephone number on every single page of your site. Your site can be .com or .co.uk.
