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 Start Up package, suitable for most small businesses, is around £50 per year plus VAT for up to 3 websites and includes a ‘Let’s Encrypt’ SSL certificate. Note one way they keep costs down is to limit their support from 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 £8.95 per month plus VAT, inc free domain and SSL certificate.
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.
