    I am currently looking to get a domain name and for the price it seems fasthosts are offering the best deal as they can offer me .co.uk for free as well if i buy a .com.

    From reading the reviews on the internet there seems to be a lot of bad press about fasthosts.

    Does fellow edugeekers recommend fast hosts?

    I looked at uk2.net, godaddy, netfirms.

    If anyone uses fasthosts. can anyone recommend them? if not does anyone recommend any other companies just for domain name registering?

    thanks

    Well, for just one example of their (cough) support, take a look at this Register article on Edugeek's issues in the past: Fasthosts brings down Edugeek - and leaves it there - The Register

    I've used UK Web Solutions Direct for school + personal sites over the last 3-5yrs (after a LOT of searching / trying other companies before them!)
    I've found them to have an amazing quality service with fantastic support when needed. ukwsd.com

    I think all the admins and mods will agree with me here, but Fasthosts are NOT recommended by Edugeek in any way or its members


    Try CS New Media Carl is great

    I'd thoroughly recommend Layershift . Run a VPS with them and in the past have hosted all sorts of customer sites with them.

    Transferred VPS over and they handles all the data move overnight and kept me well appraised of what was going on at all times.

    I decided to go with 123 reg based on feedback from here and other sites.

    I think it was the safest bet.

    I am going to look at hosting next but for the time being just host it internally until the website is complete

    thanks

    peo i was in the same situation as you. I went with CSNM. Nothing but good words from me about CSNM. Quick support, very helpful even when I came out with some noob questions.

    we have our domain (Sheldon Heath Community Arts College) with BGfL. We got a static IP address from CSNM. Then all we did was ask BGfL/Link2ICT to create a subdomain (web.shheldonheath.bham.sch.uk) which pointed to the static IP address we got from CSNM. Then they jsut create a redirect page in your SINA webspace. So when someone types in www.sheldonheath... they get sent to the website hosted by CSNM via the redirect. So no it wont affect your mymail, etc.
