Default Which hosting service do you use?

I currently use 34SP, they want nearly 30 for renewal, which is a bit steep considering I only need around 100mb and LAMP.

Which hosting service do people use here? It must be UK based.

Thanks.

Am with Heart Internet as a reseller since started the business. No issues so far. Had a couple of business' who transferred from 34SP to my services due to lack of customer service and unreliability.

Give me a shout if I can be of any help to you if you need any space

Have not used his service due to being in the U.K. but have heard good things about it and have talked to him numerous times and he's a good guy.

We have used RackSpace, RackSpaceCloud, other related services of theirs...for years. They are one of the first..big...original large hosting companies. They've been around for a long time and will continue to do so. They are global..so they have locations across the pond in your area.

Have a search for VidaHost, they have been mentioned numerous times on here. I can't recommend them enough, Domonic was fantastic when I moved my site to them. They are based in the UK and oftern have 3 years for the price of 2 deals. Check them out.

Vidahost was probably the company I was going to use anyway but thought I would get some more suggestions. I have used the before for a blog project I started when my business went dead. My business picked up and the blog died so did not bother to renew the hosting.

My experience was good though.

I really do think 34SP are charging too much in this competitive world, its a shame as I have been a customer with them since 2003 but recently I've found the support a bit too patchy as well.

30 a year is just too much what is a simple static site.

FYI, Technibble itself now runs on Rackspace Cloud. Im pretty happy with it. There are a few things that are done differently that sometimes irks me, but they are done differently because it is cloud hosting rather than shared hosting.

Default Another vote for Vidahost

Hi All

Previously with Bluehost who were pretty good - then had over 12 hours downtime from 18 November - 18th December last year and with no reassurance of an improvement left for Vidahost.

The guys at Vidahost really know their stuff and the transfer was done very quickly - uptime and response time has been excellent so far.
