Hi i hosted one of my customers sites with streamline.net, but experincing serious database issues with their server which keeps going offline. I am now looking elsewhere to host this site, which uses an invision board forum.
I am not sure whether to host with a UK or US basd web hosting company after reading - 'Hosting a UK based site on US based servers - what difference does it actually make?' the only concern for US companies i have is of the time difference and when downtime and backup will occur.
my client is looking to spend less that £160 for two years web hosting (thats around $300).
For better timezone response time, yes an european host would be better, even if a US host is quite good as well. The daily backups are often running when a few people are browsing, most of the time at 2 am, it depends each host configuration but it shouldn't be a problem either.
