    Hosting recommendations

    Hiya

    I'm currently with godaddy for my hosting, but i'm getting really sick of their slow loading times and they're clunky admin interface so i'm looking for a better host.

    I'm after:

    • Windows hosting with .net 3.5 (preferably IIS7 based and with MVC support)
    • Preferably UK based
    • MS SQL db (one will do but pref more)
    • Doubt i'll ever need more than 100 meg of space
    • Low bandwidth (its only for my personal/portfolio site)


    The cheaper the better, but happy to compromise for speed and service

    any suggestions?

    Sounds like you are after quality service and you should be able to find a quality host here. I'd recommend you to browse through some of the posts here in Windows hosting section along with browsing through offers section - I'm sure this will help you in getting your next host!

    Good luck!

    definitely check out www.uncorrupted.net . They use some very expensive high quality equipment, and good customer service. I don't know too much about hosting but these guys are certainly a top bunch

    Cool, thanks for the replies

    Had a look at uncorrupted, but it seems 50% of their site is still under development!

    Had a quick look at softsys hosting, seems they tick most the boxes apart from being in the UK! Had a look around some shared hosting examples and they seemed pretty nippy here in the UK, so tempting...

    Rick: do you bill monthly?

    Whats your actual budget for Windows UK Hosting?

    Well as its only for my personal site, quite low. I'm looking less than 10 a month preferably.

    It'd be great to take a VPS, but the cost is a little ott for me as per the usage.

    I've been offered by my work to host on our dedicated server, but I'd rather keep my personal things elsewhere!

    I see. You should still be able to find good UK based Windows hosting for 10 GBP per month with London based support etc (ie not Indian outsourced).

    Any idea on places to look? Google seems severely tainted with paid for search placings and this site, although good, is swimming with lots of information thats taking a while to sort through

    Thanks! On shared/reseller accounts, we only have Quarterly/Half-Yearly/yearly cycles and monthly cycle on VPS.

    Thanks,

    Discountasp.net should meet all of your needs listed. They offer a UK data center with IIS7 servers. MVC is supported too so I would say give them a look.
