Alternative Web Hosting

Plusnet does not currently support expanding beyond the basic 250mb space / bandwidth limit.
My question then is does anyone have any recomendations for budget Web Hosting providers I could use to shift my forum / web site to?
Having spent the last week looking online I seem to hit a minefield of mis-information and lack of independent review.
Any Help would be appreciated, and my apologies if this is posted in the wrong section.
Thanks.

also:
www.streamline.net
Web hosting from £13.99 per annum (subject to 2 year contract), but would recommend moving up to their next package.

Re: Alternative Web Hosting

I've hosted a forum with http://www.dream-hosting.co.uk/ for a couple of years using the £9.99 pa package.
No major problems and they respond to tickets.

Re: Alternative Web Hosting

Is there any news on Plus Net moving into web hosting which I think was mentioned in another thread. I think its a shame that PN don't incorporate a higher web space allowance in Option 4. You can only get 500mb of space if you upgrade to a Business account but that is not really suitable for home use because it is restrictive in some uses.

Re: Alternative Web Hosting

Servage is very slow and they offer stupid limits to entice people onto a slow service
I avoid free services as to be honest there is no comeback if something happens to your site. where as with paid hosting they have to offer a certain uptime guarantee
I have idle accounts on Servage and also on a server in Redbus so if anyone wants some free hosting PM me i'd be happy to sort some out.
i don't use them much.

Re: Alternative Web Hosting

I like these people : http://www.openhosting.co.uk ; Used them for my sites from about 2003 before we needed a dedicated server and relocated the sites to the US where they were cheaper.
After a couple of years in the US, I've just brought them back to an OH colocated server.  🙂
Service and support is fantastic.  I like the 'personal touch' they give.
