    In search of UK VPS...

    Well, following the recent series of incidents at RapidSwitch which resulted in a sleepless night for me, I'm taking this opportunity to investigate other VPS providers featuring services in the UK. I'm not fussy over the platform - Xen and OpenVZ will both do the job...

    Here's what I'm after:-
    * FULLY managed VPS
    * 1GB RAM (minimum)
    * 4IPs (minimum)
    * cPanel 11
    * Hosted in a UK DC with a good network

    All for a maximum of $97/mo. I look forward to seeing your input!

    Out of interest, why such an exact figure for your budget?

    they have limits of IP addresses on account like starting from 4 IPs, which is not enough, but I am not paying extra 40 to have more IPs

    I'd recommend www.clustered.net too

    Also consider, www.xtrahost.co.uk - They don't charge for extra IP's but they all must be justified.

    @alex-developer, contact clustered and see if they can give you a customized package, they are very flexible.

    already tried:
    Hi,

    We have plans that include 4,8,12,16 and 24.

    If you look at each plan, that is the maximum IP each plan can have.

    Thanks

    If your budget was in i.e 99 you could do it and maybe even get a managed server for that, just.

    I can only say you won't be disappointed by paying that bit extra for the 60 per month Clustered package, we use them and are very happy with them

    We use the top package and the server performance is outstanding

    But if your budget won't stretch to 60 p/m then i'd contact Xtrahost, our main site is hosted with them so we can spread our dns over two locations.

    - That's merely what I'm paying right now, so that's why I've quoted that figure here.

    - Indeed I have, but given the fact that I usually use US companies for VPSes, I feel that I could do with a little input from people more experienced with the UK market.

    Xtrahost seems like a good choice, and I'm also taking a look into EuroPhase. Thomas seems to be a decent guy, and the management plan he's offered to me seems to be reasonable.

    If you have any other good providers you can point out, then please do - either way, I'll keep you updated on my progress!

    Another vote for Clustered.net here. Excellent company and always very helpful. I also highly recommend iFuseHosting.com as I have some VPS's with them and never had a single problem.

    update from John at clustered.net

    Hi Alex,

    Additonal ip's cab be purchased for 1pm each. These also need to be
    justified with ripe rules.

    Thanks

    John

    I'd personally recommend Coeplic LTD

    I have a VPS there and have done for about 2 months now, no downtime what so ever and they offer really good support, usually with there CEO Karl. There servers are based in the bluesquare datacentre in Maidenhead and there office is actually based on site meaning if any problems go wrong with the hardware your VPS is on it will be back up quickly

    Many thanks,

    I'd recommend Xtrahost as well, I've been with them two months so far, and the performance of their VPS and support team is excellent. I'm on their XenVM-3GB package.

    Only thing is they are unmanaged servers.
