    US hosts are much cheaper. Why does it need to be in the UK?

    I'm in the UK and I've never had a problem with US hosting. I'm confused why you need it to be in the UK?

    if you are established UK company you need to be on UK hosting as you'll have that edge with Big G when it comes to local indexing....

    My site ranks locally quite easily and I don't live in Houston but that's where my servers are. A lot of UK companies just resell American hosting anyway and I work in the US a lot so overall I prefer it.

    Also, if you have a reselling plan or you're an affiliate it's much easier to get clients as US companies are well known around the globe compared to a guy in the UK with a server in his bedroom.

    In my experience and I have tried many hosts in the UK and by far Vida Host is the best by far. http://www.Vidahost.com they have good packages at a cheap rate and also have a cloud platform where you can be a re seller and make loads of money and still only pay a cheap shared package rate. Not only that they have an English tech guy on the phone line in the UK till 10pm at night. When i call them they answer within 2 minutes and you have quality support. I'm not affiliated with these in anyway just a happy customer.
