    Thanks for deleting...

    I am glad to see the community helping again.. we are a school offering incredibly cheap hosting or any ict support and a link to a testing control panel specially when below are links to giant hosting companies is going to harm..

    How many sites? there are companies that will host 8 or more for £10 per month. Better off buying a developers account and then selling the hosting cost on at a profit.

    Tsohost have been mentioned recently... their prices are good, speed is good, service is good. I'm quite impressed with them, as is my colleague who moved his site over to them.

    Personally, I use these guys: Virtual Server Web Hosting, UK Virtual Private Servers, Cloud Hosting from Switchlink

    Reliable (although, they had a bit of a mess up recently but gave everyone affected 2 weeks extra hosting time for the day it was down), fast and easy to manage (as its just a linux box, or a windows box so you can do as you want with it).

    +1 for Tsohost. Currently using them for a couple of personal sites and they've been very very helpful. Getting a question answered in 5 minutes at 3am is great service

    Currently looking at moving the school site to them (when we eventually get around to redesigning it!)

    Also agree on the CSNM, looking at trying to finish migrating all my domains and stuff over to them from my previous firm (easyspace) who are just a joke now.

    Carl and team are very supportive and helpful, couldn't ask for better service.

    Yeah for Paid Solutions i recommend the only two companys that have always made me smile whom are CSNM and VeloxServ both really nice chaps!

    If your looking for FREE Hosting, Then i am more than willing to set you up an account on the servers i hosted. Only for Schools, Charities and Non-Profit Organisations though.
