    Avoid NAMESCO and sister companies like 123domainnames as this group of companies are a complete rip off.

    They want £11.50+VAT per domain name to transfer a domain name to another provider.

    My ex-partner bought two domain names and was charges £90 for the pleasure of and I pointed out that she should have listened to me about transfer to another provider when it came to expiry time.

    The excuse that they give is that the process requires administration to unlock the account and they then transfer to the other provider.... BULL POO, COW CHIPS or whatever you prefer to call it... it stinks. Why? Because they should only supply the Auth code or EPP code required and the other host then transfers the name in to their own namespace.

    This is why I keep on barking about the whole industry needs severe regulation against rip off merchants like namesco.

    The host I have advised her to go to only charge £1 to £6 for a domain transfer in which I can understand as they are doing all the work.

    I can of course trawl the web, but God, there are so many and of course they all say they are great.... so does UK2.net.....

    Any ideas would be very gratefully appreciated, but please do not recommend your own companies to me.

    Thanks for any advice.


    Hosting fest is the company you're finding.They will provide you free asp and asp.net components are available and we can install any free asp component. They provide all the latest features like e-mail,mysql,php,joomla etc. You can try there.

    If you decide to go for UK hosting account, try following as I host first 2 sites with them.

    You have to remember that any trade issue when you purchase a service in another country will make it near on impossible to get any kind of help other that from a solicitor / lawyer if your in another country.

    The other issue I am seeing is everyone's suggestion for UK hosts all have cap limits or charge allot per month for what they offer or expect additional fees for services like databases, email and server-sides...

    The host I use for the past 2 years now has proven to me at least that you CAN have professional hosting on the cheap. To put the cost in to perspective, my hosting costs are less than 9p a day, the one in the quote above, more than 42p a day on the unlimited service and your STILL CAPPED on services.

    CAPPED = you have traffic limits or web space caps
    LIMITS = services like email, database, etc.

    http://www.uk-cheapest.co.uk/ - top package, 42p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.clook.co.uk/ - top package 39p a day, CAPPED, crap limits
    http://www.eukhost.com/ - completely unrealistic prices. £1.06 a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.servage.net/ - 18p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.pipeten.com/ 76p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS not UK hosting despite advertising
    http://www.fastsites.co.uk/ - 93p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.ukhost4u.com/ - 20p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.lcn.com/ - 15p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.ukreg.com/ - 19p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.evohosting.co.uk/ - 24p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.webfusion.co.uk/ - 29p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    http://www.wiserhosting.com/ - 42p a day, CAPPED, LIMITS
    This is only a cursory look at costs of packages that were either business or pro or the first package that was not aimed at the the home user.

    In every case, cap limits or limitations on service were present and in some cases the traffic limits would easily be exceeded if the design of the site was one that relied upon lots of graphics.

    You have to remember that you have people on-line that do not respect your traffic allowances and will hot-link to your content, images, graphics, anything to save themselves having to get, upload and code in properly and burden the traffic cost themselves... This happend to a friend who had a fansite and they were landed with a $300 bill because someone had hot-linked to her video content, she only knew because she made the company tell her what URL was the referrer and she found the site. Turned out exactly as I warned her, a script kiddie making a fansite and they were collecting email addresses in return for offering up her content!

    So be warned, buying too cheap can cost you.

    I only know of www.chimehost.com and they are based on USA. they are pretty fast when it comes to speed and pricing is good too. If you already have a domain, just use their trial and see for yourself.

    I just launched a site using uk-cheapest

    For small sites its not bad and the domains are pretty cheap (was about £6 for 2 years for a .co.uk) and they're a range of packages. Some people said it should be avoided but out of 2 reported issues they got back to me pretty fast, and everything seems ok with them right now

    On the other hand, I also work with fluent.ltd.uk which is several hundred a month but have very very good service.
    L.U.N.E for anyone and everyone who has an interest in literature

    The issue IS NOT the size of your site, it is to do with how much traffic gets burnt when some t*sser script kiddie hot links to your content.

    Personally I'm a fan of the bigger webhosting sites, but then again each one offers something slightly different. It really depends on what you’re looking for and then you can choose the right webhost for you. I'm personally a fan of green hosting. Do you guys know of good green hosts?

    Whichever uk web host you choose, just make sure they offer at least 99.95% uptime guarantee, 30-day money back guarantee, various features, multiple scripting languages and 24/7 customer support via multiple channels. These are the most important things you should ask to the web hosting providers before signing up with them.

    If Domain name contains your primary keywords then it will helps in improving keyword ranking and traffic as well.
