    Talking

    Can anyone recommend a Good UK Host, one where I can move my entire site to.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Question

    How much do u want to spend? How much space do u need? What technologies do u need? How busy is your site?

    Unless u need hands on access to the server, u would find a more cost effective solution hosted in the states (due to the sheer number of host's there).

    Thanks for your reply. Have a look at the site yourself. People tell me it is impossibly slow. Yes I need to be able to change file and upload new pages from my PC.

    The site is currently hosted by a Free Host (Value Web).

    I don't mind paying but not too much.

    Regards

    Hiya again i hope you get back to us when we are fully operational again. All we are waiting on now is for the mysql databases to be sorted out and we are up and running properly.

    Had a look at the site (see what you mean about valueweb being slow!). Looks like just plain HTML pages at the moment, so you can literally take your pick. If that's the case, I've used Demon in the past (comes free with the dial up account, and they are pretty quick). If you want to expand, db on the back and stuff, then I'm not sure who to recommend in the UK, but I've used InterLand in the states before, and they were OK.

    By the way, quick tip: take all the spaces out of your files and directories. e.g. "what clients say" should be "whatclientssay" in the actual directory, otherwise you are going to have some trouble with some browsers.

    Wow. That is pretty slow - though I think I would make the distinction that your "Value Web" (namesdirect.com) is not the same US-based Value Web, which is much better, speed-wise.

    I don't know any UK-based hosts other than the ones mentioned already, sad to say....

    Years back I used to use lochnet.co.uk, from what I can remember they we're quite good.

    Yes, of course. Why not?

    I'm in the UK and hosted by a US company.
