Does anyone know much it costs to host a site as cheaply as possible?

Cheapest way is with your own ISP (blueyonder etc) 30Mb free. But avoid Orange/Wanadoo if you dont want the nasty advert at the top. If you want advanced features like scripting your isp may charge more (100Mb and Perl etc £4pm) 1and1 seem to offer quite a good deal for £2.34pm. Also check out 123-reg.co.uk seem to offer a good deal for £3 a month, but I dont know what their service is like, and if the servers ever go down.

Saw this the other day...bought my name as a domain as it was still available...now problem is...what do i do with it? I'm not really the sort of person who would stick photos of his wife and kids on it and tell you what i had for breakfast - any ideas for something useful gratefully received!

oh for heavens sake, go namecheap with the "yaffaspecial" code- its $7.99- under £4. and thats any time, all the time.

Thanks good deal on the domain name reg - just got a .com & corresponding .co.uk. Cheap is good in this case as you can always swap to a hosting company of your choice later.

However as for hosting service avoid 123/webfusion/pipex - appalling! My websites was down 8 times in the first 2 weeks of being with 123/webfusion/pipex. Poor service and even worse customer service - no replies to emails, long times on hold over the phone, very slow to honour their 30 day money back guarantee.

After much research (web magazines) I eventually moved to Fasthosts, emailed them regarding changing nameservers & was pleasantly surprised to receive an email from a human being (vs automated) giving me a step by step guide to doing this. Within hours I was up and running & never looked back. Cheap hosting is a false economy in my opinion especially if your website is important to you.

I've yet to find a UK company that offers .com / .net / .org domains as cheap as US companies can - vis versa where .co.uk / .org.uk etc are concerned, so if you have a credit card, I'd recommend using an established US registrar which has ICANN approval

Indeed, this is a really bad offer...not sure why everyone seems to be snapping it up, I have never paid more than $8 for a domain name in my life.

Shop around chaps, don't just jump on this offer because it's up here...

Yes, but this is a company based in the UK. I've found them really reliable.
#10
This current domain name deal is brilliant.
nearly half price :)
VOTED HOT!

Yes, but this is a company based in the UK. I've found them really reliable.


Regarding domain name hosting with them though, a few points to consider:

1&1's servers are based in Germany.. if you take hosting from oneandone.co.uk your site will physically reside in Germany (so you might struggle to get high listings on Google.co.uk)

The customer service team will act promptly to ensure that your domain is migrated without any delay.


The 1&1 customer support is terrible!... US call centre.

Very slow response to emails .. usually around 3 days to reply. And I'm on their most expensive pro hosting package.. god knows what they'd be like for their basic hosting package!

I'm speaking from over 3 years experience with 1&1
The uptime on my domains has been good though, and it's easy to add more domains to your account. I wouldn't necessarily recommend them, but I've stuck with them for a long time. The only reason is that I've had very little need to contact their customer support


ps.
I can't believe I've been buying domains from 1&1 all this time and not taking advantage of Quidco cashback
#11
Well it's probably me but I cannot get the domain name any further than the basket....no checkout or registration button...ok guys ....where is it:shock:
#12
I must agree 1and1 are terrible, I had nothing but problems for two years!! I cancelled my contract after the first year due to hosting always being down, poor customer service, slow response to emails, list goes on. Even after cancelling I still received a bill every few months from them asking for money they even sent it off to debt collectors and threatened to take me to court. I must of called them in excess of 32 times and cancelled every time. In the end i threatened to sue them and even had to get a solicitor before they paid me back for everything they owed me.

Now I am freeeeeeee from 1and1 claws….

Hope I didn’t scare anybody to much, but would like to save anybody from the stress I endured. If anyone knows of a stress free hosting site please let me know and I’m sure others are interested.
Thanks

I have five domains with them, haven't had any problems yet, but I have heard bad things about them too. GoDaddy are supposed to be the best for domains btw.

I've been using 1and1 for the past few years for a .co.uk domain registration and for hosting my mail and never had any probs.

My .co.uk domain registration seems to have been the same £1.99 a year all that time which is pretty good.

My opinion having purchased well over 50 domains and hosted them is to bear in mind a few issues.

Firstly, I buy the domain from a separate company to the hosting company I use.

Secondly, make sure you have full control over the domain name in a good control panel once you've bought it. As domains are cheap to buy anyway then if you have to spend an extra couple of quid a year - do it. Also if you want to swap around with hosting firms in the future you can very easily by redirecting to a new hosting firm (see DNS things below).

When you purchase your hosting, make sure you use a firm that's email part of the hosting also gives you an outgoing server (so you never have to change settings wherever you take your computer and on whatever connection) AND that they give you webmail as standard so you can access your mail from any computer anywhere in the world.

Here's my current choice of budget places...

Domain names buy from www.ukreg.com, they're part of fasthosts and thats a big company, they shouldn't disappear tomorrow! When you buy the domain name select 'host elsewhere' (something like that) and it will ask for a primary and seondary dns server. Type in 'ns1.wiserhosting.co.uk' for the first one and 'ns2.wiserhosting.co.uk' for the second one and proceed and buy.

Then go to www.wiserhosting.com and buy a wiser web start package for an annual payment of £25 inc. VAT and follow the instructions putting in the domain name you just bought elsehere, that'll give you full control over your domain name. If you don't know what you're doing after its all done you can actually get hold of wiser hosting on the phone! ....and they're really helpful and knowledgeable not like most call centres.

Hope this helps some people get sorted or has brought up some good issues at least, my way you will be billed from two seperate companies, one for the domain and one for the hosting but you will be in control.

DONT GO WITH 1 AND 1
Trust me - if you are buying a domain name dont be sucked by stupid offers - just pay a fair rate. 1 and 1 are terrible - awful customer service - and believe me if you ever have problems with their servers you will want some answers fast. The real issues start when you try and move, stop or sell your domain - 1 and 1 make cancelling the charges VERY difficult. I have even heard from others that they can change the price. AVOID!!!!

Do your research before buying a domain name.

DO NOT USE 1&1 !

i tried to buy 2 domains with them 3 weeks ago. two hours after i "bought" the domains they were still available to register so i bought them elsewhere. (i only tried 1&1 because 123-reg was down at the time).

next day the send an automated message saying they couldn't register my names because they weren't free (yes, i bought them!) and then i get a newsletter. a couple of days later i get rubbish in the post...

i've been trying to get them to delete my account ever since. i've spoken to them on the phone and sent and received over a dozen emails. their system wouldn't let me cancel for a month, even though I had *no* business with them. i have requested the delete my account that day and eventually they agreed - twice! both times they lied as I could still log in and it said "Hello Mr ..."

i am still waiting for them to delete my account but i will be reporting them for abuse of my data and refusing to delete it.

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE

Well I knew I wasn’t the only user to have problems with 1and1, absolutely useless company and I only went with them as they were based in UK. Could I ask mfin or anyone else who could help about a domain issue.........

After finally taking a year to cancel my contract and everything being sorted with 1and1, I tried to buy my domain with someone else, to find out I still own it. How do I get my domain from 1and1 to another company like [url]www.wiserhosting.com?[/url] Any ideas I would really prefer to have no contact with 1and1 again. They have cost me a fortune on the phone already.

Thanks for that code by the way!

I use ukGraphic.com
The account size is huge and you get the Domain for Free. They also do Web builder packages (I used it as I am not familiar with web design and I don't have maney to spend for web designer)
It looks Great!

Just my two penn'orth...
1&1 are an atrocious company to deal with. They were damn rude on the phone and actually threatened to sue me for not paying for a second year after I cancelled before the end of the first year (as I was entitled to do).
You get what you pay for. Avoid.
