    So, I was ready to start my site and did a lot of research on who I go with in terms of hosting. I looked around all day, and weighed up the prices and advantages and disadvantages.. And then evenrtually I went with "Fast hosts".

    Im not going to beat around the bush, they are terrible. It literally takes 10 seconds for my site to load, and its actually quite a light site. I pointed this out to their live chat and they didnt seem to care, just gave me a link to some shitty php thing that does nothing and then told me there's nothing they can do. Dicks.

    Anyway, I need a new host and fast. Im looking to pay around £15 per month, not the best budget in the world but I do want the best loading time possible. The host also has to be well established and have good support cause Ill need to switch my entire site to a new host now.

    So please, fire away with your best hosts. I would also appreciate it if you sent me a link to your site so I can see the loading time my self.

    Fire away with your best UK hosts....

    Why does it have to be a UK host? I'm from the UK but use a US based host.

    Have a look in the marketplace, plenty of hosting companies advertise here.

    Because my website is selling in the UK. Why would would I use a US host? Also, the reason im asking is because I want to hear from people's experience. It would be naive of me to just choose some random host, of course every hosting company advertises them self as "super quick, super fast speeds" but I want to here from peoples experience rather then falling for their shitty advertising. "Fast hosts" for example contradict themselves straight away with their fucking company name, because their hosting is slow as shit

    £15 a month? :eek:

    What kind of server are you looking at? I'm in the UK and my server costs me £19.99 for 2 years hosting unlimited everything on a shared, load times are absolutely fine.

    TSO are my favourite for UK smaller sites.

    OVH for everything else.

    Looking for speed, try coolicehost! I know the guy behind it and he is crazy about fast and secure hosting. Try for yourself, you will not be looking for any other shity host with shiny website and many tricks to hook you up.

    I suggest OVH if you need someone in the UK area.

    Why do you even need a UK host?
    Try Netherlands or Norway with Cloudflare
