    UK Host reccommendations...

    Hi All,

    We currently use VirtualNames.co.uk which are excellent both feature wise and regarding customer service. Now, I'm acutely aware that ALL my clients use VN, what if VN die!!?

    So I'm on the look out for another UK hosting co. with a decent feature set but more importantly perhaps is their support response time replying to queries etc.

    So, those of you in the UK, can you reccommend anyone? I'd appriciate your thoughts.

    Rob

    Do you need a managed hosting provider or unmanaged ? Also, let us know the hosting plan you are interested in ?

    Hi,

    It might help to list what features you're looking for and in what sort of price range, then people will be able to make suitable recommendations to you (providing of course they follow the forum guidelines and have actually used the companies they are recommending).

    Yes, of course!!

    We're looking for shared hosting with the usual PHP/MySQL/PHPmyadmin facilities. A half decent CP with password protect folders, CRON jobs, comprehensive setting control such as safe mode/global vars, registry setting, DNS setting etc. We'd need SSL certificates, various hosting packages from simple (small site) to larger e-com (busy site) etc. So nothing really that out of the ordinary.

    Above all we need excellent customer service and support.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks again

    Rob

    Hi,

    If you're looking for control of PHP settings then you're really going to need to be looking at a VDS or a server, unless you find someone running PHP via mod_php which is getting rarer due to the lack of security it provides. PHP run via suPHP or as a CGI is a lot more common these days.

    I have seen at least one thread in here with the same request and I believe there are a lot of the same threads over there. All what you need is doing the search for the question you have. That is big and old forums and 95% you will find your answer
