    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

    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....

    Yes, of course. Why not?

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

    Take a look at http://www.bigbytes.co.uk for a list of hosting packages and email response times (this is not my site.

    The newsgroup alt.internet.providers.uk is the best place to ask this question.

I've mailed most of them hosts and the average time aint what it says on there. a few of them are right thebrickhouse.net answer fast so do webneticss the others ive found take there time.

    Eddie -

    True, people should restrict the whole TH topic to the TH thread. But someone looking for a UK host should be aware not only of TH's practices, but of the fact that while they are a UK company, their servers are in the States (at least until Alabanza gets rid of them).

    Another thing to look out for (to the original poster) is awardhosting.com - looks exactly like TH, and is regged by TH as well. I'd tend to avoid anything associated with TH completely.

    You might want to ask on alt.internet.providers.uk, as Mark suggested, for some reputable companies, as they would probably know better than someone here in the States....

    Look scum. You have been told to go back to your hole in the ground. Nobody believes your fraudulent ramblings. Nobody is "getting rid" of us, face it that we are not going to be shut down. We have thousands of very happy customers, and no we do not have any problems.

    Go back to your day job of robbing little old ladies.

    You are possibly the most unpleasant person I have had to deal with, ever. Put up your evidence or shut up, weaselboy. And I guess we'll see what happens on May 5, which is the dealine Alabanza has given you, won't we?

    To the original poster, who was looking for a UK-host: this is exactly why True Hosting, or any derivative thereof, should not be on your list.

    Do not go with fthosting! It is a one-man-band operation, that cannot afford to pay its debts.

    They were a reseller, but ran up debts they could not pay. They are currently the subject of collection and court actions. Watch out - he could try and disappear at any time. I would not trust any money with this guy!

    Yeah right - pretty funny coming from a real one man operation. I'm sure Eddie is just like everyone else who is the subject of "court actions". Who's your "lawyer", weaselboy? What are the case numbers on all those legal proceedings? Shall we direct people to http://www.technogirl.net/99tales/suing_lies.htm so they can see the veracity of anything that you write/say/post regarding legal issues?

    Sorry, folks, for running off the track previously.

    I do have a question, though, about UK hosts. It seems that if you were to do a search on Yahoo or the like, the ratio of US to UK hosts is what seems to be 4 to 1. Is there really a large number of hosts in the UK from which to choose?

    Umm, in responce to your last line, how is "robbing little old ladies," as you put it, different than robbing everyone who is unfortuneate enough to sign up with your pathetic excuse for a "company."

    Give it up, weaselboy, you've lost.

    Look scum,

    If Eddie cannot afford to pay his web hosting bills, since he is a reseller, how can people expect to get good service from him?? He is a one-man-band operation.

    Everyone is well aware of your multiple aliases. How is "Stephanie", "Joey", or "Paul" these days? Shame nobody believes you.

    Go and try and scam somebody else.

    Your act is getting old. Come up with something original, will you? Nobody uses any aliases but you, and the only thing you do by repeating these things ad nauseum is convince everyone of exactly what sort of jerkoff you are. Piss off until you have something substantive to say.

    Back to the original, now. Did a quick search at Yahoo for web hosts in the UK, and came away with a pretty long list. Didn't bother to go down and see if they were all really in the UK, or if they are buying their space elsewhere. It would seem that if someone wanted a UK-based host that there are quite a few from which to choose.

    Annette including resellers etc there are 500 to 600 uk based webhosts. Quite a lot of them have servers based in both the usa and england. but as british telecom are now opening up there network connections seem to be getting faster ask webfusion who spent 1 million on there new data center there providers include the likes of uunet.

    Oh Weasel, Weasel....

    What are we going to do about you?

    Making defamatory comments against Annette and Eddie will do you no good. In fact, if I really wanted to, I could point your ISP (BT Internet) to this site, and ask them to disconnect you on basis of violating their TOS. Not only is it *not* the way to present yourself and operate as a professional web host, but you're just embarrassing yourself.

    Oops, he never did run a professional web hosting outfit, did he peoples? ;-)

    Look you ugly piece of scum,

    True Hosting is not some one-man-band operation like eddie's little scam.

    The only weasel here is YOU. Nobody believes you, so go sit in the road and do everyone a favour.

    Prove it. Eddie at least has the guts to post up the (real) names of everyone who works with him - and his own. How's "Bradley Goodman" doing? Remember him? How's that New Orleans office coming? How come every piece of email anyone gets from you always has the same header information? Why don't you try giving your (real) name here? It's very interesting that anyone who disagrees with you or hates your "service" is some sort of scammer.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch - does anyone know if there's actually quite a wide variety of actual UK-based hosts out there? It must be difficult for someone who wants a real UK-based host to track down a relatively decent one.

    Annette,

    I dunno... I tend to find UK hosts a bit slow from where I am (well, duh, I'm half way around the world!) so I tend to rely more on US hosts. Pings are slower and it takes me usually 2/3rds of the time to reach US hosts compared to UK hosts.

    As much as I'd like to use my own country's hosts, bandwidth costs *HACK HACK COUGH COUGH* - not surprising that there are absolutely no unlimited bandwidth hosts around here ;-) (unlike a large portion of hosts)

    Meanwhile, Davey, who was that directed to? Annette? Eddie? Saint? Me? Everyone you've dealt with in the past? One more and I WILL have no hesitation following it up with BT.

    Yeah, but you're in Oz. What do you expect, since you're at the bottom of the world??

    Seriously, though, I'm curious about folks who are in the UK and what choices there are available to them there, and about folks like you. Surely there are hosts down under. Is the expense of local hosting prohibitive? Are there no good hosts? Are there just not enough? What's the scoop?

    ROFTLMAO. sorry i was just wondering how long it would take before he went public saying im going to court. I've been subject to this fake court proceedings since March 3rd 2000. I basically told him bring it on. i've sat here daily everytime a police car drives past or someone knocks at my door expecting your under arrest. Well this aint happening.

    Im a one man band yeap sure am i have a keyboard under one arm and violin under the other a drum kit at my feet and a harmonica in my mouth. I can play the tune *it's a long way to tiperray*. Well me and my staff are laughing at this. look here http://www.bitsmart.org one of my support guys called andrew prentice look at his deatils they all point to the usa man i must be a big guy to reach right over to america and log onto the internet . Also http://www.robhost.com who are now going to be running my free hosting its run by a 16 year old from miami now im in three places. And theres heather she runs my graphics department shes in new york. who else lets think oh yeah adam Kramer from london. Tysha from Bristol and micheal moore from texas. I must do a lot of running around to be all these people. There is one person you could sy im impersonating thats malcolm my flat mate but i think hed be pretty offened by being called Eddie.

    Fraudlant activity's thats grand coming from you. Im so a money grabber aint i i give out free hosting no catches they then have the option to upgrade to paid hosting i have around 30 paying customers who all like what they get. i have some annoyed free hosting ones who say this dont work that dont work but at least i try to fix the broken stuff.

    Oh well gonna dash it's a bank holiday monday here im halve drunk maybe the reason for the sarcasm i dont know ill have a drink on you davey.

    "Davey" - give it up. Your day is coming.

    Eddie - When you say that BT is opening up, what do you mean? Did they (do they) charge exhorbitant fees for the use of their network or something?
