Prices look expensive, particularly when you look at "add ons", which can be free with other hosts. It is hosted in the UK though.

You need to be a bit careful when chosing a host - you dont want to be buying from reseller account.

Personally, I'd recommend taking a look at 34sp.com or liquidsix.com

Take a look at [url]www.surpasshosting.com[/url] - They are doing for a years hosting for $1 (53p for 200gb space, 2000gb bandwidth)

It's where someone rents a server which they can then sell hosting on...

i host with them and had no problems so far.

34sp.com looks very expensive compared to other sites.
#9
I am a web designer and use freeola to host my 37 sites free of charge:

Very relable with feedback and problem solving, also a forum to discuss / exchange or offer mutual help:

Can't fault them

£18 per year for hosting with MySQL, Perl, etc... best price I could find and exactly what I need for my little site. :)
#11
Nearly every host these days supplies MySQL, Perl etc - even surpasshosting which is just 53p for a year supplies that ;)

And then after that year, its $6 per month. Its also hosted in the US where you will be fighting for CPU and bandwidth with other users all having huge allowances.

34sp is in the UK and is fast and reliable - and as duckmagic has just found out has good customer support.

I guess it depends what you are after. If you want cheap and cheerful, then a US host such as the one you mention, may be good enough. Personally, I wouldnt host a site on a host such as these that I wanted to run a business from. Ive got 2 US reseller host accounts. One with Dreamhost, the other with Netfirms. Both offered similar start up incentives. Both are relatively slow. ie you get what you pay for. Ive got webspace coming out of my ears in the US - but if its important - I would use elsewhere.

This is a site I am webmaster to for a local charity at 34sp. www.bromleyautistictrust.co.uk have a look and compare for its loading speed.

The OP asked for recommendations. I gave one based on personal experience. Its not expensive, though I wont argue you can find cheaper. You will also find that if your market is UK based, google search engines will rank it higher for a UK search, than it would if hosted in the US.

I have reseller accounts with both Dreamhost and Netfirms in the US. If I wanted to, I can sell the space I have via a website in exactly the same way as streamline have. (I dont do so - and I am not saying that streamline does - but that is why you need to be careful.) Pretty much every company on ebay are doing exactly this. They all have authentic looking websites to sell - and you would be none the wiser - until you buy and see speed and downtime issues!

eg I also have cheap hosting with a company that was advertised on this forum "qiq". Good first year price and things seem to be ok. However, this company are resellers and are hosted themselves with "easily". So what happens when you are sharing on a server with heavy loads? Not a great deal that qiq can do about it - youve just rented space that they themselves have also rented!


As a webdeveloper - would you be wanting to host multiple domains? Slipstream looks like one domain only until you pay for their highest package. This may be ok for you - but worth mentioning.

I have checked website, no probs with load speed, just noted one thing:
If you click on the - Adult Services tab (without using the pop out) it gives you an error
Not Found
The requested document was not found on this server.

Before the year runs out simply make a full site backup and move onto the next deal, I find it silly to pay full price for web hosting when there always seems to be a special deal on for a year/few months to make the most of.

I've only ever used USA based web hosts and I have always had great customer support and with a good broadband connection the difference between loading times of a UK and USA based site is hardly noticeable.

I'm not saying don't go for 34sp as it's his choice, I was simply showing that there are much cheaper alternatives out there and seen as this is a deal forum i'm sure people are interested in saving money ;)
#17
as far as i can see by searching the whois it looks like streamline have their own servers so i guess its not reseller
#18
i cant find anywhere that qiq is hosted with easily?
#19
I'm with streamline and i've got to say, they're great. Everything is easily set up. I did multimedia design at university last year and my whole class were looking for a good web hosting service. almost everyone in the class settled on Streamline because their prices and service together were the best.

If they are like dreamhost, whist you would be able to open a new account - you couldnt host the same domain name. (Done to stop what you have suggested!) If your site is pure html, then it wont be a big problem to find a new host and upload. Not so easy though if you have used databases.
