    Any recommendations for UK-based web hosting companies?

    Does anybody here have positive recommendations for a UK-based web hosting company?

    I'm looking for a low-cost solution at the moment (5-10 GBP per month), so I don't mind shared hosting. This will be for a small one-person business.

    Thanks in anticipation for any recommendations.

    I use 1and1 in the USA, but they have a UK branch. I have had no problems with them other than my complete lack of knowledge when I first started setting up my site. I used their FAQ pages to help me learn.

    34sp are a medium sized independant uk web host worth checking out. They have a good forum where you can interact with existing customers.

    Hi,

    It's worth noting that 1&1 aren't UK based - their UK offerings are actually hosted in Germany from memory.

    Thanks,

    Karl,

    Thanks for that. I was just going by what I saw on their website, and I obviously drew a wrong conclusion.

    Do your research on other hosts and see if you can offer the same feature set for a competitive price, some features may not cost you anything to include (such as language support or plug-in stuff like ZenCart). You do not whatsoever want to offer “unlimited” services though, they are a con and impossible to achieve, show accurate limitations and you will seem more trustworthy.

    Fasthosts.co.uk is owned by 1and1, and has data centers in UK. Not that they would be my choice or anything, I just thought I'd mention it.

    They are indeed, but still run as separate companies at the moment to the best of my knowledge - although they have taken to off-shoring the support recently.
