    Question Looking for a good UK VPS

    I've got a fair sized site that gets between 10,000 and 20,000 pageviews per day, uses up around 40GB per month and has roughly 2,500 unique visitors per day. It's quite database heavy, linux and shared hosts generally can't cope without slowdown, while dedicated servers are too expensive.

    I'm looking for something in the 25 to 35 price range and found a good list here

    host-review.co.uk/cgi-bin/listman/exec/vps.shtml

    However that site looks a bit new and there aren't many reviews, though I was able to track down these three as potential candidates from the search

    34sp.com
    serverchoice.com
    interhost.co.uk

    Anybody know anything about them or could recommend somebody else?

    You have several good providers thats offers UK based VPS now.

    I have used SolarVPS.com for 1.5 years now in the UK. The price is some high, but their services is great.

    You have also FutureHosting.com after they started offering UK VPS. I have to say that their VPS nodes is one of the fastes I have had ever, and their support is great. They have done a very good job with my VPS and tuning up my VPS.

    And you have cheapvps.co.uk that provides cheap and good VPS, and they have also a great support team, but they offer unmanaged VPS plans.

    All three providers have good offers here at WHT, so you can do a good deal if you choose one of them.

    At SolarVPS you get a Linux VPS with 576 MB RAM, 25 GB disk, 600 GB monthly transfer and Choice of cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin for $57.60, thats under 30

    At FutureHosting you get a Gold managed plan with 512 MB RAM, 20 GB disk, 450 GB monthly transfer and Cpanel or Plesk for $34 with their 15off offer.

    At cheapvps.co.uk you can get a VPS with 512 MB RAM, 20 GB disk, 300 GB monthly transfer, without any control panel for 10,5 with their RAMx2 offer. If you want Cpanel you have to pay 22.25

    Good luck finding a provider...

    It's strange that no one's made a really good comprehensive website, like adslguide.org.uk but for hosting providers - especially considering the rate at which the UK market is expanding

    This post might get pulled by mods as I dont have an IP or domain to verify, but we were using Interhost just over a year ago for a cPanel VPS.

    Performance was OK, Support seemed to be a 1 man band. Server would go down at it would take over 6 hours to get a response. It may be different now of course, but at the time all of our tickets and such were handled by 1 person.

    A2B2 or cheapvps is a great choice

    I just got my vps from cheapvps for testing purposes, and I like the network speed/latency.

    I've been with CheapVPS since about August and would recommend them (and by extension A2B2).
    I think the server saw what was required of it and just committed suicide instead.
