I am looking for a hosting company with servers in the UK, but significantly, have similar features to hosts such as hostgator. Specifically:
-I quite like the cpanel setup
- I also am a fan of having something the same or similar to fantastico, where I can easily install wordpress and other scripts with a few simple clicks etc.
I used to hosting with justhosts (I think) or one of the bigger UK ones, and it was a VERY involved process to get wordpress setup on their hosting (even when we were uploading wordpress to our own hosting!) and they charged us around £60 just to be allowed to use Wordpress on the server.
Clearly, this kind of service isn't really desirable.
But I would quite like the servers to be in the UK to improve UK search engine results.
