    Default Best UK Hosting Recommendation?

    Hi

    Could anyone recommend a good UK hosting company?

    I've used 1and1 but don't like the fact that their servers are located in Germany. Not great if you want to target UK customers!

    Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I use:


    Inexpensive shared hosting.

    I would like to see what others are using and their recommendations.

    I think a lot of it probably depends on what you're looking for. I can't speak for the LAMPs brigade; all of my sites are C#/ASP.net & SQL Server, and my analytics are all based on IIS log files...so I look pretty much for hosting companies that offer .net framework, Sql Server & access to IIS log files.

    To that end, I've used

    fasthosts.co.uk
    webfusion.co.uk
    hostingUK.com

    Out of those three, I'm not sure really which is the best; each has strengths and weaknesses (i.e. hostingUK FTP is tempremental at best, and my sites seem 'slow' compared to the others, but it has a far easier to administer interface than either fasthosts or webfusion).

    TBH, I've ultimately found it easier setting up my own server; that way I can configure it any way I like! Unfortunately I'm currently living opposite a building site where they have the unfortunate habit of cutting power/telephone/any cable thats in the way.

    As I said though, it depends what you want out of it; I honestly don't believe there's much to choose from on any of them.

    If you like setting up your own server, you may want to looki into a virtual server, or co-location.

    Virtual servers give a lot of freedom.

    Co-location or dedicated is not the cheapest, but gives you the most freedom.

    I have had outstanding service from EZPZ hosting. Very little down time, once to do an upgrade on the servers which was less than 2 minutes. I would recommend them to anyone.

    I've always found Register1.net to be very reliable and support has been very quick when needed.

    I use easily.co.uk. The servers are located in Docklands, London. Good uptime and no problems.

    I use eukhost.com, like WagerX. Very happy with their service, pricing and support!!!

    Also good choice for VPS, if you need one.
