Hi, as a new guy to web hosting I need advice please on a replacement hosting company.
My present company oneandone.co.uk is incapable of offering me satisfactory online or telephone advice.
I have 10 domain names:-
4 of them are .com
4 are .co.uk
1 is .us
1 is .biz
they are not very active sites but I consider (not sure) I would need a minimum of:-
2.5 gb web space
20gb monthly use
can any one advice please on suitable helpful and affordable hosting company.
I do not wish to break any "no advertising" requirements therefore if you wish to check the type of domain/s I am dealing with (vacation/holiday related) you can see them from my details.
There are a lot of good hosts offering 2.5 GB Space and 20GB bandwidth. I would suggest you do some looking around at hosts that look good to you and ask them (if they don't already have it) about a custom plan.
I also reccomend to take a look at Midphase - they seem to be reliable too.
I would NOT recommend MidPhase. I was with them for a while, they were ok at first. Over time they proved to be not reliable (email service was particularly bad, server was often unavailable).
They cancellation procedure sucks, too. They will not let you go unless you remember to cancel TWO WEEKS before your contract is up. If not they will auto-renew you and charge you. They give you really hard time to get out of their "service", and will NOT be cooperative. They will NOT reimburse you for unused portion of your contract, too.
They're out there only for your money. Keep that in mind.
I am glad I am over with them. Stay away or be dissapointed.
Well not sure about that Dan may be he has subscribed to this thread. But I would like to comment in this thread.
There are good number of hosts around offering the bandwidth and the space that you are looking for. You need to have some search around the forum in order to select the one. It will be really helpful if you could also know the budget which you are looking forward to for hosting your website.
As many have said, there are a ton of great hosts here at WHT that can fill your needs. Just read some of the SIGS in the posts. Then doa quick search on them - see what people are saying about them. That should help you quite a bit.
Let us know where you go! Good luck.

I would suggest BlueWho.com as I was with them for over 8 months in the past and never had any serious issue AND most important their service is awesome. You always get an answer within 15minutes at any hour of the day.

You can also try micfo.com
I had been using micfo since November 2004. Since that time I've had two incidents where their server hosting my site began running painfully slow. The first incident, back in January, lasted a few days and was resolved when they moved a heavy-hitting account off that server. Then, about a week ago, it happened again. My sites stopped responding and my SQL databases began experencing corrupt tables. After FOUR days of downtime they had still not resolved the problem. I was forced to move to a new hosting provider which, as expected, resolved my problem.
I am now trying to get Micfo to refund the six months of pre-paid service that I have with them. So far they refuse to refund my money even though it was clearly their fault that I moved. I'm still working with them on this refund but it doesn't look good.
