I am based in the UK and at the mo have a hosting account with Hostgator, which is great. BUT I have a few sites that are targeting the UK only with co.uk - will this effect the search results if a searcher restricts a search to UK only bearing in mind that Hostgator is US based
If I am at a disadvantage can anyone recommend UK host with a similar cpanel to HG as I am familiar with this.
the only negative is the amount of addon domains. With HG ...and a lot of US hosts unlimited seems to be the norm, whereas UK hosts seem offer just one, two or five
Hosting an unlimited amount of domains on a standard hosting package is not "normal"... perhaps it might be normal from the cross section of hosts banded about on WHT. Being able to host an unlimited amount of domains would generally come with its own requisite charge...

I have one site that is hosted in the states and is ranked #1 for a search string on google (googlewide) but off the radar when restricted to UK
No matter what anyone says, that is quite common; I recommend having a UK host for all of your "uk" domains but you will have a different price structure to what you have been used to in the US - UK is much more expensive for what you get (or more generally what you don't!).
How much do you want to spend?
