So Many Web Hosts, which one to choose?

So you want a website but don’t know where to get it hosted? Here are a few recommendations to help you decide.

Tsohost – great value hosting

If you are on the budget and you want to get very good value UK based reliable hosting, then go for Cloud Hosting by Tsohost. The lite package, suitable for most small businesses, is just £14.99 per year, or go for Standard at £34.99 a year for larger or busier sites.  Note one way they keep costs down is to limit their support to 7am- midnight.

Siteground – best all round hosting

If you have a bit more to spend, then go for Siteground with good all round performance and support. Website performance is generally a notch better/faster than Tsohost, and Siteground are recommended by the makers of WordPress themselves. Prices from £6.95 per month, inc free domain.

Fastnet  – Local Hosting in Brighton

If you want local (to Brighton) web hosting, then try Fastnet from £3.99 per month.

Anyone to avoid?

From limited experience, I’d definitely avoid Easyspace and  Fasthosts, and probably 123-reg.
