  • Recommendations for web hosting providers? -- UK

    I've been asked to take on hosting a web site for a local business group and am looking for recommendations for hosting providers

    It appears to be php/mysql based so I assume a unix server is the way to go?

    Suggestions / advice appreciated

    I've been using Streamline for a couple of years, very happy with them. I get a 2 year deal including Domain Name registration and the price is pretty good. A quick look at their site shows MySQL is an option, and I got the choice of UNIX or Windows servers when I signed up. I'm only hosting a basic website so can't comment on any other aspect of the service. Email works fine though, webmail is available or I use a POP3 Connector into SBS 2003.

        yep - you want a linux server, with php and mysql - commonly called the LAMP stack..
