Top 10 Hosts to Host your Website

See comparison table ยป

Below, I have conjured up a list of the best website hosts that I have personally experienced from the UK and from the US. Again, I will emphasize here that even if you're from the UK and your business is in the UK, targeted to the UK people, the physical location of your website does bot need to be in the UK too. Of course there are added benefits to having your host in the country that you are in but if you're looking for lower costs with good web server specifications, I would recommend you go abroad such as the US, which is why I have them listed here too. Trust me on this one...I have lots of websites hosted in the states but targeted to the UK audience. For me it makes no big difference but I get to save a lot of money.

HostPapa: HostPapa is a web hosting company that's been around for a long time which is up there along with the likes of BlueHost and HostMonster. They're been in the game long enough to provide a good hosting service and meet all your normal needs for a normal website. You will of course find a lot of criticism about all these hosting companies on other websites reviews but that's a given. I've used HostPapa before and I would recommend people to use them for normal websites such as CMS's, ecommerce, informational, blogs, forum sites. They will do their job and host your website without any problems from my experience. Based in the US using green energy technology, with ample bandwidth allowance, storage and free setup. Customer support 24/7 and my favorite, free domain for life.

Bluehost: Top web hosting provider in the US with fast speeds in the UK, umlimited email accounts and free domain. Anytime money back guarantee. 20,000 new websites sign ups every month. Bluehost is located in the United Stated and they hosts thousands of sites around the world. I've used them before and I still do and I don't have problems with them as of yet. Their hosting plans are relatively cheap for what they are providing and often have promotions for new sign-ups. I would recommend them for small to medium sized website hosting needs.

Hostmonster: Another cheap web hosting company that does its job thrill-free. HostMonster web hosting is good for small to medium sized companies. Good up time, support and given full bandwidth power. I've used them before, still using them and will continue to sue them for at least a while yet. You might be wondering why all these recommendations are for small to medium sized websites and that's because this website is dedicated to beginners who wants initial recommendations on their 1st website. Professional web hosting service, one of the biggest in the hosting industry with unlimited server space, sute bandwidth and host any number of domains on same package.

EUKhost: UK based web hosting with good uptime, fast connection, good customer support, a UK leader with 5 plans to choose from. Resources restricted but should be enough for any blog, forum, CMS, small company ecommerce site. EUKHost is based in the UK and one of the largest of it's kind in the country. Hosting plans are really cheap but you get more limitations as a result such as bandwidth and space. You do get a free domain that comes with it though which is also cost saving measure. If you have a small company and you're not planning on hosting a lot of images or videos and you want to stay locally hosted, then EUKHost is a good choice for you.

Godaddy: GoDaddy is the biggest name in web domain name registration and web hosting which they are equally big in. Their hosting plans are cheap and they do work reliably for small to medium sized websites. You'll hear a lot of complaints about them but that's only because their customer base is massive, can't please everybody. I use them at the beginning but now I only use them for domain registrations. Still recommended though. 24/7 email, web and phone support. USes state of the art technology and supports just about any web technology that you can think of. Unlimited resources and cheap price.
