  • Best UK vB Hosting?

    Hi,

    We currently use a windows server at Rackspace to host our vB forum as that is what our main site runs on. That is of course maybe an overkill in terms of cost.

    We are now looking for a solid UK linux server to host, it doesn't need to be dedicated as we have no more than 100 concurrent users, but we would prefer a "semi-shared box" if there is a such thing. It needs to be very robust, good uptime and fast. They need to have a great reputation and solid history of performance. Happy to pay that bit extra for that.

    Not sure if any hosts offer this, but a "managed service" would be great. Where they do vB upgrades etc...does this exist?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

        100 concurrent users is not a huge requirement. You can even consider a VPS for hosting your VB forum.

            I too would recommend you visit www.globalgold.co.uk. We've been with them since 2000 and their service is outstanding. They also have many different packages, giving you the choice of making sure you buy the best plan per your requirements. Global Gold will also help you migrate when you're ready to upgrade. They are with you every step of the way.

            Good luck with your project.

                  Add my +1 to that GlobalGold recommendation
                  100 concurrent would suit a VPS fine IMO.

                  I'm sure they'll help with the vb upgrades too if required.

                    Just a quick thanks from myself, your answers to olivercookson helped me a lot as well. Wasn't even aware of Globalgold previously.

                      olivercookson, your requirement is not big at the moment a mid range VPS would be enough at the moment.

                            A web host that is a web host, not a web hosting & SEO & Design firm & a domain reseller, or a hosting reseller for that matter.

                              You don't get much for your money though. For £4.95 month they offer.

                              Space: 300MB
                              Bandwidth: 20GB

                              Pretty poor when you see NameCheap offering this for £5.41 month (10p a month extra)

                              Space: 100GB
                              Bandwidth: 1000GB
