    Arite Folks,

    My old mans hosting has come up for renewal and I thought I would ask what everyone else is using right now?

    Looking to host a few simple websites and the odd wordpress install. Ideally UK based and as cheap as possible but reliable.

    Cheers

    When I was looking into it the other year both Krystal and EUKhost were well recommended. I ended up with EUKhost as it worked out slightly cheaper for my use case or something.

    Used to use Vidahost/Tsohost but they went rubbish from what I hear after selling out to GoDaddy. Shame.

    Krystal.

    Couldn't recommend Vida/Tso/Godaddy from what our customers that migrate away from them have to say but never heard a bad word about Krystal, definitely a company that cares about reputation and will look after you though.

    Hi Dez!

    Dedicated server:
    I use "Kimsufi" it's a subcompany of OVH : https://www.kimsufi.com/en/servers.xml
    I pay like 7€/month for KS-1.

    Simple Hosting :
    I also have some domain name/simple hosting directly with OVH.
    For Web Hosting (php/wordpress) and domain name it will be 40€/year.

    The only thing is, their servers are based in France or Canada.

    So if with you Website have a ".co.uk" and you mainly target people in UK, forgot OVH/Kimsufi.

    If your customers come from "everywhere" and have a .com domain name, why not ? It will didn't change much in term of SEO.

    ps : I'm based in Ireland, and they provide worldwide support. I never had any issues for probably more than 7 years.

    StablePoint or Krystal for basic cPanel hosting - dont think you can beat either of them. Avoid TSOHost like the plague
