    Hi Everyone,

    Im in the process of developing a new website and need hosting for it, although i am reasonably happy with the hosting i have there has been a few issues.

    Does anyone know anywhere which is cheap and reliable with a nice CP?

    Thanks,

    There's a few fellas on here that offer hosting: eShop (Allister), Pete (fairly obvious) and Saajan.

    I can certainly help you out. Paid monthly about £4, paid quarterly about £10 and annually about £35. Actually priced in USD, but these GBP rates have been about the same for a couple of years.

    I offer the what I like to think of as the "industry standard" CPanel Control Panel. *****************************************

    Many here host with me, I'd appreciate your custom, as well.

    Define 'best'. I use Godaddy, and even though I haven't had any reliability problems the general consensus is that they're not the best in terms of reliability.

    However if you're fairly technical, for the price, they can't be beaten. I think it cost me 60 quid for three years worth of hosting.

    Hi Mishkon,

    What sort of hosting do you require?

    We can offer shared hosting with set quotas or unlimited quotas with full cPanel.

    If you need it we also offer VPS hosting with a choice of server locations and we are just about to launch a new range of Cloud hosting plans.

    We also offer a Try Before You Buy with our Free Hosting Trial so you can test our server speed, cpanel and support etc.

    I use Pete, although I have made the mistake of purchasing a domain with GoDaddy and getting caught up with their heavy handed upsell technique and purchasing the hosting.

    Then I did have a problem. GoDaddy support - not great, it feels like they send automated scripts back sometimes.

    Compare to Pete. Quick, no fuss answers, reliable and affordable, and the job gets done, no matter what you need. That's why I won't be going anywhere else.

    Hostgator or dreamhost offer good value for money with good support. If you are wanting to keep to a TWF member then pete.

    Unlimited Domain hosting isn't a problem, we have a package available with unlimited web space and bandwidth for just under £90 a year (£24.99 quarterly).

    We had the .ME domains at a promotion price so could have cut you a deal but the promotion ended December 31st and reg fee is now back to £19.99 per annum.

    Best I can do is 20% off the .ME domain, drop me a pm if you want me to generate the discount code.

    Really sorry redspell but i can buy the .me domain for £10 already and have found hosting with unlimited web space and bandwidth for £70 for 3 years.

    I appreciate the offer though.

    Can go wrong with Saajan's hosting (http://www.electro-host.co.uk/) in my opinion its a bit more expensive than some other hosting companies out there but I have never had a problem with them and whenever I have a question their live chat or ticket service is always very helpful and quick to respond!
