My last host disappeared like a fart in the wind, So im now looking for a 99% trusted site to get my hosting with.
With my last hosting i had my own personal site and i had my own blog & 3 of my friends had a blog each with my hosting to. But im only looking to get hosting for my site atm!
So im looking for a 99% trusted site who can host my personal site with a blog. Then ill be wanting to upgrade to a resellers so i can offer a small hosting service to my friends to host their blogs for a small free & maybe offer a little web hosting to them.
Im looking for UK only hosts, I dont want sites that offer unlimited space, DB's because we all know unlimited dont exist! And it puts me off looking at a host when i see unlimited. Im looking to spend around £5 a month shared hosting then upgrading to a resellers and paying around £10 a month for a resellers.
I hope im not asking to much but i know what i need
Sounds resonable; you can try the Find a Host link at the top of these forums. Also make sure you research the host as well to see what people say about them.

You should definitely check out the shared hosting offers section on this forum. You will probably see alot of USA based hosting but some US based hosts also have EU operations. Good luck in you search.

Well not going for unlimited offers is really a good start since some kept buying that kind of promotion. Like others have suggested, try the offer section forum. And when you see a host that you like try searching for reviews on them =)
It is good to see that someone doesn't want to get "unlimited". I really appreciate such requirements. There are plenty of good UK hosts and my suggestion is to try to find a local company. I know a few excellent providers but I dod not have any kind of customer history, business relationship or experience with them, so I can not recommend them. However I'm interested to learn more about how did your web host disappear? Didn't they transfer your account to someone?
Ive taken a look on the 1st few pages of hosting offered forum section and seen some i like. Ive sent a few emails to them and i might be sending some more later on to other sites.
Im just looking now and comparing the sites etc.. to see which would work out the best of just getting shared hosting then upgrading later. I also go on the speed of emails to get back to me. One site i have come across the emails between working hours are answered within 30mins or less! and the guy is so polite and gives me what i want to hear! even gives me a 2nd back up idea!!
Edit: my last part was about trusta host WHO has replied in my topic which i didn't see, Btw Dominic i was talking to you via email as your shift was just finishing! if you remember me!
Why don't you buy a hosting package and add your friends domains to it? A lot of my clients host blogs for themselves and then add their friends accounts as addons. It wouldn't cost anything extra and means you wouldn't need to get a reseller account unless you really had to (or liked having WHM control).
