New web host

I’m looking for ideas for a web host to replace namezero. I’ve been with namezero for years and years for my personal website mostly due to laziness, but now their service has got beyond a joke and I’m looking for a replacement.

Can anyone recommend a (possibly UK based) hosting provider? I need about 1GB/month, about 50Mb webspace. I need just apache for static HTML pages, no MySQL, PHP, or any CMS fancy-whatsits. I need to transfer a single .com domain, and setup a few mail redirects — no mailboxes needed.

I don’t mind paying a little extra for uptime or for a company that isn’t going to go bust anytime soon. Ideas welcome. Thanks.

    Hurricane Electric ( is both crazy-cheap and crazy-fast. They’re not UK-based but they are very central from a web-topography point of view. 2G storage/125G transfer/static content is US$1/month; for US$10/month you get 5G storage, 500G transfer, and CGI/PHP+MySQL. I’m not using them at the moment but have used them in the past and been very pleased, ymmv.

    I can give you some DreamHost space for free. Could probably also offer you cheap hosting on our servers at CWCS datacenter in Nottingham.

    OVH in the UK is quite good. You can get a VPS or RPS server for less than £10 a month depending on what you want to do with it

    I’m using One since a long time back. Cheap and reliable, at least to me. Try .

    I use vidahost, who are far from bad and quite helpful. They even rang me up when I joined.

    Google them, great reviews.

    Possibly over the top for what you’re asking for, but the bytemark linux VMs are good and fairly cheap.

    I use a VPSs from which are not in the UK, but are stupid fast with connectivity.

    I third the suggestion for

    Awesome good stuff.

  15. G is cheap at the lowest of the low end. Linode is hands down the best I’ve found.
