    Shared hosting in Europe

    Hello all,

    Im looking for a quality hosting provider within Europe. As close to Italy as possible. Payments must be accepted online.

    My site is not heavily busy just need:

    1) Good fast connection with quality uptime.
    2) 2GB + Disk Space
    3) php and mysql (Recent versions)
    4) non overloaded server
    5) safe mode off and mod rewrite mod enabled
    6) Customer service in English
    7) control panel

    You may ask why i dont find a host in Italy and to be short the answer is customer service is Poor. Too many forms to fill in and many hosts have strange customer service hours (mon - Fri) 8 - 1800. The list goes on.............

    Like i say im interested in quality not quantity (Unlimited disk space + bankwidth etc)

    Can any of you suggest some hosts please?

    If you are looking for services in the UK, I have found http://www.surpasshosting.com/hosting-uk-solutions.php to be good in past, they are based at bluesquare, who I also use, and they are very very good.

    Simsnet, for Italy i recommend to look into the big three, with that i mean the countries with the largest internet exchanges and likely having direct peering with Italy;

    Those three are: UK, Netherlands and Germany, where of course geographically the Germany would be the closest; although that does not necessarily mean they have the best peering with Italy, but you could do some tests from different locations in Italy.

    All the above countries often offer also English support with their packages, so that should not be a problem.

    For all your other requirements you should contact the providers you shortlist and see if they can help you out with this; besides it gives you an idea about their (sales)service as well.

    You can check stablehost.com as they give you option of German based server and it would be closest to you, they are also very active on WHT, but its better to talk to them first.

    I would suggest you to check who is connected to Tiscali and other providers that have direct connection to the Italian internet users. I mentioned Tiscali because they are quite big in Europe and their network seems to be a good one.

    That doesn't really narrow it down all too much - even if its not direct, there is always good peering in place.

    UK/Germany hosting should be fine, we have a number of Italian customer and none of them have ever complained about slow site speeds etc.

    I would recommend InnoHosting.com
