    UK Hosted

    Hi Guys,

    I was wondering if anyone here could recommend any UK based hosting companies.

    I need someone with servers in the UK, that are fast and reliable.

    I'm looking to run php 5 with mysql, I also need .htaccess, and also to run ioncube. Any with SVN support would be an added bonus!

    I was wondering if there is a common favourite amoungst you guys?

    Any thoughts /advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Do you have a specific budget or any specific amount of space or transfer ?

    Are you looking for a host headquartered in the UK, or one with servers in the UK? I imagine the list would be vastly different depending on your answer.

    I've recently (a few days ago) moved to a UK host and must say so far I'm pleased with the support and speeds I've been getting. The host I'm talking about is GeekSRV. You may want to have a look at them.

    Domains I currently have with them are nilscroes.com and substruction.com.

    Last I checked, SVN is built into most Linux distros by default, I know our servers run it without any need to install extra software. So I guess find a host with Linux that's willing to give you SSH?

    I had signed up with webhostuk a few months ago and I have found them to be very reliable in terms of uptime and support so far. I had signed up for their linux business plan and have found their network to be pretty fast from my location.

    I recommend EZPZHosting without hesitation.

    I've been with them for about six months, if you want to check my site, one of the domains is pleasurefishing.com, to give an idea of speed etc.

    Support is very quick, Dan knows what he's on about and very friendly too. I get a response within a few minutes, even for the trivial things I've needed to contact them for. Recommended.

    Forgot to mention uptime, I've only noticed one short period of downtime in the least few months. Every host has this, hard drives can fail etc. The nice thing was I was kept informed.

    Thanks guys for the feedback.

    I don't mind if their HQ is the other side of the world, but their servers need to be in the UK.

    I know that while you can set your website geo location from google webmaster, having servers located in the UK does help also from an SEO view point, but also for speed (as my users will be UK based users).

    Im looking to spend between 10-20 a month, but speed is important so depends on what you get for your money and whether this price is realistic.

    I will look at the sites you guys mention, and if anyone else has personla recommendations please add to the list!

    Cheers

    For 10-20 per month there is a lot of companies that would meet your requirements so I would look at the offers section on these forums.

    The annoying bit, I have some questions regarding your requirements:

    Question time:
    Any ideas on a control panel? (cPanel / Plesk etc)
    Windows or Linux hosting?
    Hosting space / bandwidth?

    Good luck and hope I can help

    Take a look in the offers section; always find a few good deals in there and then call or email the host to ask questions.

    Thank you for the recommendation

    @crebbo do you have any preference on data center/location within the UK?

    Innohosting


    EDIT: I guess you already found a host. Best of luck

    I would recommend to go for catalisehosting ( an UK based hosting company - Headquartered at UK and most of their servers are also in UK itself). They do provide a very reliable hosting service at reasonable price tags.

    Cheers for all the input

    You can get a quality web hosting plan in the UK for under 10 per month, depending on how much web space you require of course.

    One thing I would recommend that you do is email potential providers and ask what specification server you would be hosted on.
