    Hi Everyone,

    Sorry if this has been posted a thousand times I have tried searching the forums and google but all I have found are advertisements, which I assume are affiliates.

    I am going to set up my first website (which is quite a big deal for me) I will want to monetize this and hopefully be able to turn a profit by using affiliates etc.

    What I want to know is who would be the best host provider for me based in the UK, price isn't too much of an issue but ideally the cheaper the better as with everything in life.

    Thanks in advance.

    TSO Host are outstanding in my experience

    They offer packages from £15 per year, ideal for noobs.

    As a former EUK Customer do not use these guys

    My mysql kept crashing, they told me its because google was crawling my website too much????

    In reality their server hardware had a fault.

    No one is perfect in this industry...each of them have some or other bad reviews...not everyone will have good experiences...if that would have been the case then there wudn't be other hosting companies popping out every day....

    Dude this issue went on for 2 months. I am all for giving people a second chance but they took the piss.

    2 months of "its your problem", "your codes wrong", "you're using too many resources"... Turns out everyone on that shitty telford server was having the same thing. They then admitted it was their fault.

    I wouldn't use them.

    I have a OVH dedicated server for £69+VAT and a couple of TSO shared hosts for email and experiments.

    I've had no faults with either company. EUK can suck my dong.
