    Hi guys,

    Been using Bluehost (I know, crap) and Host Stage (great company), but none of them offer .co.uk domains.

    Does anyone know of a good UK based host company. I have looked online of course, but you guys will probably have better advice than Google.

    Thanks in advance for your help and time.

    James :)

    you can take a look at webhostUK or Rshosting

    I have personally been using webhostUK LTD from last 3 years pretty happy with support and service I get, bluehost is best to avoid after EIG takeover.

    Those hosting co's are most likely domain resellers and not accredited registrars. Just get your domain from Namecheap or GoDaddy and hosting (if you don't have one already) from someplace else. Don't put all your eggs in one basket, they say.. :)

    I use Vidahost, great service and the support is remarkable. I'd recommend these any day of the week.

    Ive used Vidahost for a few years now, have 5 sites hosted there. Would definitely recommend them because even when problems do occur they seem to fix them quickly. If you do go with them make sure to use the coupon code 'JUSTASK' as well, it takes 20% off hosting packages and sticks for every time you renew. Over the years it should add up to quite a bit of saving compared to without using it.

    As SharkServers said, if the hosting is good why are you leaving due to domain name? Buy domains from somewhere like Namesilo or Namecheap and then point at your hosting.

    in my opinion get domain registered on any domain register you think is good for you and get hosting from where you like it ;)

    I would recommend HostForLIFE.eu service. Their web hosting is very reliable, 99.9% uptime guarantee and can handle concurrent visitors with unlimited disk space and bandwidth.
