    Hello,

    I need a new host!! My email has been down for the past 12 hours, and everything is being bounced back - not good!!  No one from the company has actually said anything yet.

    So I have a set of requirements:

    Cost - around £10 per month

    Windows / ASP.net 2.0
    SQL Server Space
    20 - Unlimited Domains mapped (like a reseller account).  I need my personal space Wink

    Anyone got any advice?

    Looking at 1and1 at the moment as they have a 50% off deal for the year...brings it in directly on budget - but heard bad reports about them...

    Please help!!

    Thanks

    Ben

    If you do a search this question about UK ISPs has come up MANY times in the past and usually resulted in quite a few recommendations.

    Yeah, Google is great!!! but there is nothing like a human recommendation.

    Hosters pay for good reviews from the directories, and generally people only post bad things when theres a problem - and rarely post good things just because.

    I expect most of you have hosting, so was just after your reviews...

    www.netplan.co.uk  are good professional high level uk provider,  however they are over my budget.

    www.1and1.co.uk seem cheap! but heard bad reports - but 50 bad reports out of a reported 400,000 clients isn't bad.

    www.redfoxuk.com again cheap! with them at the moment - but my email is down and no reports on when it will be back up.

    I meant search here in the Coffeehouse!

    I'll repeat the same reply I've given every time it's come up before...

    I've been with hostinguk.net after several other ISPs (Demon, Netscalibur, now Claranet, Pipex etc) - they are not only much cheaper but give the best service I've ever had. Several times I've been working on a Sunday afternoon and needed some help or IIS/SQL Server config changing (I use their shared server hosting) and they've always come back to me within half an hour of being contacted by email.

    I'm sure there's cheaper available elsewhere (they just put their "dedicated server hosting" prices up Sad  ) but I'm not moving after years of incompetence from other companies.

    Oh right, sorry Smiley

    Looked at HostingUK and they look good, but not great for multiple domain names per account....

    What I really want is a dedicated/virtual server....but thats way too much money for me at the moment.

    Why not drop them an email/give them a call explaining what you want and why they don't appear to be offering it. I've found them very flexible/helpful when the need arises.
