I'm a french webmaster (sorry for my english...) and I'm fed up with France (taxes, administration, etc...). I will go to live in england in few months and create my company and a web site (cross the fingers for me )
I'm looking for an excellent host with very large data transfert, PHP4 + MySQL. Can you help me please ?
Thank you very much

Visitors of your site won't notice it either. Hosting your site in the USA will roughly add 100ms (= 0.1 second) to the response time, which no one will notice. It's much more important that your host has good connections and speedy (non overloaded) servers. I also cannot remember the last time transatlantic connections were down.
It's easy to check out off course: just visit a few US sites (especially the hosts were you might want to go) and decide for yourself if they are fast enough.
I already posted 2 links above but if you need quality my recommendation is go with FutureQuest. They are not the cheapest, but if your site is important there's no better place to host it. I did a lot of research to find the best host and they are it. Just try to ask them a question a 4am at night. Never ever did I get a response in less than 15 minutes.
The only disadvantage is that if you require MYSQL you need the Gold Package which might be expensive if you have a low traffic site.
