UK hosting - can anyone recommend a UK based host?

by 22 comments
Hi. I want to host some UK targeted sites, and am looking for a host with servers in the UK. I hate googling for this - anyone got any recommendations?

    Second for Heart Internet - i've used their reseller package before - my first IM idea was to sell hosting!

    Check out D9 Hosting - very responsive, great service, good prices.....

    Zen hosting has been great for me, they are very expensive but well worth it in my opinion.

    And their customer support is one of the best around.

    It could be to get better results from Google UK, as Google checks the location of where sites are hosted. So for example if you're running a site about London Gigs, but host the site in LA, Google might not give you as much love as a rival site that's hosted in the UK.

    I exclusively use hostgator even for my Uk specific membership website.

    I have a friend who hosts with and is always praising how good they are.

    These are mine:

    h t t p: / /idealhosting.duoservers [dot] com - The best thing about them is the fact that they're FANTASTIC with customer services - I'm suprised if I have to wait 15 mins for a response in most cases and really quick to resolve any issues (I think in the two years I've been with them, I've had one issue, and it was completely resolved within the hour.

    The packages are good too - AND you can choose your datacentre - UK or America.

    Good luck finding the right one for you,

    I prefer hosting in the UK since i am in EU, and i get better speed to my sites for maintenance/uploads. And usually access speed *from* the states is not bad either. Its a good compromise as opposed to hosting in the US when you're in EU.

    I am with for years already, they're simply fantastic and incredible cheap, but very high quality hosting. I know since i am working with so many scripts and running into incompatibilites can always happen with other hosts. Support is also top notch. I tell them i want PHP5.0....few hours later i have it...things like that.

    And my VPS is also in UK but from solarvps.

      My friend uses Hostway. He told me about some problems that they helped him to solve fast. So I think customer support works pretty well there.

    I have used as webhosts for years after going through many others. They have servers in both USA and UK. Not cheap - but the most rock solid host ever. Support is the best I have encountered. My biz partner has one site that serves over 600K visitors a month with Kualo without a hitch. We have both had sites on their UK servers.

    Depends what level of service you're looking for. My recommendations:

    Best customer service (if you're looking for lots of back-end support for add-ons etc.)
    islandwebservices dot co uk

    Cheap (but never let me down):
    123-reg dot co uk
