    Possible for that rate, but the service you might get might not be 'the best', I think you need to look at increasing the budget a little to find something suitable.

    I think the diskspace / traffic quotas will be difficult to find for that budget, and all the hosts claiming "Unlimited" of both are not quite as unlimited as they claim to be....

    If you can reduce the diskspace a bit you could go for a VPS?

    The UK rates run a bit higher but if you need servers from that location you will have to take that into consideration. Unlimited doesn't mean an infinite amount and that is also something you will want to add into your considerations.

    Have you looked at tsohost clustered package? They have good/quick email support and have been very reliable for the 2 years I have been with them.

    Update, the total diskspace usage for all the accounts, in total, for the month of June 2014, was 30 GB and the total bandwidth for all domains for last month was 160 GB. and I could pay up to 80pm. With this extra info, and bearing in mind the other requirements below, can anyone throw in some extra ideas on totally reliable hosting with excellent 24/7 support please?

    The host must be physically based in the UK
    Over 99% uptime
    Hosting 50 websites
    Anonymous servers/IP's
    Quick email support and livechat - both with people who can converse intelligently in English
    Total of 200Gb bandwidth
    Total of 50Gb diskspace
    Able to use PHP includes on all the domains, from and to other internal and external websites

    Any help much appreciated.

    Clook might be worth a look, you'd need to ask the price for a larger reseller package than their standard products

    I have a couple of small sites on shared hosting with HostPresto! I haven't used their reseller hosting, but their Business Reseller package looks to cover your needs. I can vouch for the speed and quality of their e-mail support service.

    Dev,

    I use WebHostingBuzz with multiple accounts on multiple servers in the US. They have been EXCELLENT!

    Because they do have a datacenter in the UK and, I believe, share the same OUTSTANDING support staff, I recommend that you take a look at http://webhostingbuzz.co.uk. I'm sure that you'll find an account to suit your needs.

    If you have questions about WHB, their CEO, Matt, is a SitePoint member and you should be able to PM him directly (mdrussell).

    Regards,

    DK
