Wordpress hosting recommendations?

Hi all,

 

We're happy with our plusnet service, but would now like to use WordPress for our smallish co site, which is not something plusnet offers. 

 

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good (UK based - preferably) WordPress hosting outfit, that we can point our domain to from the plusnet control panel?

 

Thanks in advance

 

McGL

Tsohost are UK-based and offer Wordpress hosting (although I don't myself use this feature). Their support is exemplary - I've hosted my site with them for years, and had no problems of any consequence.

Hi OldJim

plusnet hold the domain for the co, and do all the email. So, was hoping we could point to another provider for the company website. Would prefer not to migrate all that stuff away.

 

cheers
