(Cheap) recommendations for domain hosting (email, basic wordpress website) to transfer out plusnet

Hi All,

 

I'm looking for a cheap option to transfer my domain name out of Plusnet into another provider. It's mainly for email access, but I've also got a very basic static wordpress website as well that would need to be transferred. Any recommendations for a very cost effective provider in the UK?

HI, I've been using Ecohosting for a while now for email on one of my domains. They're good value and support ( via ticket ) is very quick. Their hosting prices are here https://ecohosting.co.uk/hosting.html and optimised hosting for wordpress here https://ecohosting.co.uk/wordpress-hosting.html. Even the very basic hosting includes up to 10 mail accounts.

Beware though, that domain transfer to/from PlusNet is largely a manual process so expect some downtime , particularly in the current circumstances.

I use EUK Host, and have done for a few years now. £36pa and I get my mail and several domains hosted for that. If I have ever had problems, online support have fixed it, usually within an hour or 2.

I've used NetNerd (Was FVS  Free Virtual Servers) for 4 separate small domains I support. Their 'Essentials'  package @  £30 (+VAT) should suit.  https://netnerd.com/unlimited-hosting/ 

Excellent support, usually < 15 minutes to first contact and 1 - 2 hour resolution.
