With so many different companies out there offering website hosting and domain registration, it is hard to know who to use. These days there are only two providers that I use for domains and Hosting. Both are UK registered companies with UK based operations.
UK Cheapest, as the name suggests is a UK based company offering competitive hosting and domain name registration. I have been using UK-Cheapest for around 10 years directly and also have a number of previous clients who also utilise their services.
During my time with UK Cheapest, I have never encountered any billing or account issues. I have had the odd technical glitch over the years, but nothing of real significance. Where technical glitches have occurred, the technical team have always been available and quick to respond. The only downtime I have experienced has also been out of hours, and assume this was maintenance related.
As well as good packages their technical support is also available 24/7. I would highly recommend UK-Cheapest if you are looking for a new domain register or hosting provider in the UK.
The second company I use for both domain registrations and hosting is Unlimited Web Hosting. Unlimited Web Hosting also has all of its operations based with the UK.
I have not been using Unlimited Web Hosting for that long, around 2 years. It was recommended to me by a colleague due to their excellent packages and pricing.
I currently only have one hosting package with this provider and two domains. During my time with them I have not experienced any downtime. The only technical issue I encountered was when transferring in a .net domain name. However, this was resolved quickly by the support team.
Based on my experiences with Unlimited Web Hosting I would recommend these as a provider. There does seem to be a few different sites using this name, but the one I am referring to in this post is Unlimited Web Hosting.
