    Buy cheap, buy twice

    Their website doesn't give me confidence in their abilities when it comes to hosting either. There is no such thing as "unlimited" disk space either.

    Does anyone recommend 123-reg? I'm a private customer of theirs, but I don't do much with my website.

    They offer one-click installation of Joomla. Has anyone tried it?

    The one click installation software is probably similar to those offered by many companys using Installaton and the like, I have used it in the past and it does work quite well to be honest.

    I use 123 Reg to look after the domain side of things as it's just what i've used from day one and it's always worked.

    It's a very old version (1.5.3) so you are still going to need to update it manually, so it would be easier to just do a new install the manual way or go with a provider that provides single click installation of the very latest version of Joomla.

    I started hosting on ETGlobalSolution which vanished off the face of the earth after a power outage. Tried GoDaddy and they weren't bad but a little difficult to use their control panel. Then I moved to Memset who I unfortunately experienced some major customer service issues with after years of good service (fallout is on here somewhere, lol!). Currently with CS New Media and they have been pretty good so far.
