Ok this is basically for a really simple website that will have something like Wordpress on it along the bloggy type lines. I don't expect there to be many visitors at the begining but it should and hopefully will gradually build up. I havn't got a huge budget so its for around £5 and under per month.
Anyone got a specific experiance which would tell me "No" don't go with them because they're rubbish or is the water clean with them?
Also is there any companies that are smaller and that you could recommend (no yourselves, against the rules) that gave you a good service.... ie- support, uptime, value for money etc.
UK2 hold a good reputation here and are one of the most popular web hosting companies for customers who wish to have their servers in UK. However, 1&1 hold have been critisized by many for their bad service and support. You can search the forums and you will find plenty of bad reviews for 1&1 as compared to good reviews.
I personally would recommend webhostuk when it comes to budget oriented web hosting. Have experienced a decent support and uptime so far from them. Goodluck with your search though.
I've only ever used UK2 for domain services, which apart from one occassion has worked flawlessly. Doing a search for 1and1 brings back some intresting results, mainly people complaining of slow support.
