    Default Recommend a Hosting company?

    Hi All,

    I'm looking around for a hosting company primarily to start a blog and I've stumbled on this: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    it seems to provide a lot of features and is relatively cheap. Does any one use them? or have any other recommendations?

    I notice many hosting companies don't provide Java hosting, worth having or not?


    Thanks,

    Rob

    No not yet, it seems like most places give you a free one.

    Hi
    I used to use justhost and if you go to website and keep leaving it they keep coming back you get pop ups offering you cheaper and cheaper....but after one year the price goes up steeply. I now use TSO hosting.

    I can highly recommend Vidahost. I've been using them for a few years now and their support has been awesome and very personal when I've had to use it.

    Been with hostgator for a few years and never had a problem. Have also got some on stablehost who don't promise the usual unlimited this that and everything else but the server speeds seem better because of it

    Thanks to hoponbaby

    Hi,

    I have been with ChickHost for a while now. Very good, T&C's are clear and direct none of this mad language used in some T&C's. Service is good aswell never had any issues. Thats my suggestion.

    Thanks for reading.

    StableHost are excellent, good prices and I know discount codes for them to get 50% off. Other I have used are SharkSpace and GeekStorage

    Used Siteground initially then they turned out to be an absolute nightmarem would never touch them again, forever suspending the hosting wanting more and more money. Hostgator were difficult for me too as they wanted me to upgrade every so often due to high CPU utilization. Plumped for valuevps.co.uk a couple of years ago and have never looked back, spot on with support and cost is perfect too.

    Krystal.co.uk ... Been with them for years. Very well priced and excellent service. To be honest, most of the hosting companies around are ok.

    Fast Hosting Direct, I've got a few sites hosted with them and their service and pricing's top notch, even more so if you need to set up as a reseller.

    Has anyone had to raise a support ticket on Hostgator recently? I've been waiting for an email issue to be resolved now for 13 days despite bumping it a couple of times and chasing via live chat.

    I use Hostgator for a hosting service I help run with multiple domains on it. Personally I use transip £5/month for a full VPS...
