    Best Host

    Who would you say is the best host that you have used overall with the following factors:
    Quality - speed, uptime, help and support
    Price
    Features - languages allowed, updating to latest versions etc..

    thanks to the 3 who answered you will all recieve rep
    Aero im from UK, that would be less that 10GBP / year, how ever i dont like this part (I cant access my E-Mail from ISP)
    E-mail Address: The e-mail address you specify on the order form must be the e-mail address given to you by your Internet Service Provider. You must be connected to the Internet through this ISP while placing the order. Submitting a free, web-based, or e-mail forwarding address will result in cancellation of the order.
    and i guess they would take cards from the UK? as im part time this sounds like the best option for now, ill need to contact my ISP before i sign up though

    xe.com says that currently $12 = 6.04891 GBP

    Do you have any of these? Maybe cleverdot.com will be better for you. Not as inexpensive but still a good price. 24.99 US a year.

    Godaddy seems to be okay for domains. I don't like their webhosting mainly because of they non user friendly control panel. I like the fact that they call you after you've got your domain to make things are going okay.
