Hosting.co.uk offers UK based cPanel hosting and offers plans for all types of WordPress sites.

Running their our own server network in the East Midlands, Hosting.co.uk is a good choice for anyone looking for a UK data centre which also offers 24/7/365 support via their HelpDesk ticket system. Talking of support, the team at Hosting.co.uk work all day, every single day of the week and say their average support ticket response time is under 30 minutes.

For anyone that needs to host multiple websites with seperate cPanel logins then the reseller accounts start from 10 accounts and go up to unlimited.

For both the shared hosting and the reseller options you can take advantage of a free transfer from your current host if required. If you are new to WordPress and hosting websites then fear not, the Softaculous plugin is installed on the cPanel (your hosting control panel) which allows quick and easy “one click” installs of the latest stable version of WordPress.

Krystal Web Hosting Review

Krystal Hosting (http://www.krystal.co.uk) is a UK hosting company who offer cPanel hosting with Fantastico scripts so you can get WordPress up and running in seconds.

There is a lot to like about Krystal – UK phone support, stable company history since 2002, 30 day no quibble money back guarantee, Fantastico installation scripts, decent prices and so on, but the completely unique thing is the Krystal data centre. You have to see this : http://www.krystal.co.uk/datacentre — What do you think ?! There can’t be anything that offers more secure hosting that that ?

There are three main plans in the web hosting section (they also offer business hosting and private servers) – Amethyst, Topaz and Ruby – all are good for running WordPress since they come with cPanel, Fantastico scripts, full support for PHP and MySQL databases. The difference in the plans is the number of domains you can host and the traffic / bandwidth  and storage you can use.  Another handy feature is the automatic backups (weekly & monthly).

For more advanced users / WordPress addicts / Web developers, the reseller hosting package offered by Krysal is pretty powerful. They offer a full white label where you can offer up to 250 cPanel accounts.

Evohosting (http://www.evohosting.co.uk) is a UK host based in Maidenhead. Evohosting have been offering web hosting since 2004. When looking at whether they are a good host for wordpress they tick all the boxes.  Their control panel includes Installatron which makes installing the latest version of wordpress a doddle. It takes just a few minutes and once you have done it a few times you will be able to install wordpress in more like 30 seconds.

The Starter Plan is a great place to get started with hosting wordpress since if you are unsure how much bandwidth and webspace you will need why pay more now… You can upgrade at anytime. If you want more than one domain though look at their “Home” package which allows you to host ten domains. By paying annually instead of monthly you’ll save money and if you sign up for a biannual deal you’ll get money off as well as other bonuses.

They also have  a useful blog which is well worth a mention and includes wordpress tutorials.

Fat Cow Hosting Review

FatCow Hosting is a US based company but if you visit their website it’s easy to select UK from the top menu and see their UK pricing.

Installation of wordpress is done through their own conrol panel where they offer installation scripts to make it nice and easy to get up and running in minutes. Despite being in the US they do allow you to register a .co.uk domain name for free if you prefer that to a .com.

Fat Cow offers a simple hosting plan for blogs which includes what now seems to be pretty customary for US hosts, unlimited diskspace and unlimited bandwidth. One of the optional added extras when you register is daily backups. This might be something you should strongly consider or bear in  mind if comparing Fat Cow to UK hosts such as native space & Heart Internet Hosting where backups are included.

Fat Cow offer a 30 day money back guarantee along with 24 / 7 customer support (especially important if you are from the UK and are going to be hosting in the US). Last but not least, Fat Cow also promise that their hosting is 100% eco-friendly… Their offices and data centres are powered by wind energy.

nativespace (http://www.nativespace.co.uk/) is a UK hosting provider with HQ in West Yorkshire that offers 24 / 7 support and an advanced data centre in London.

Every web hosting package from nativespace comes with the widely used cPanel control panel and features fantastico deluxe to enable a one click install of wordpress (no FTP or zip files to worry about). One more nice feature is the continuous backups which mean that you will be able to restore your site should something go wrong.

Packages range from “Premier” which lets you host 1 domain to “multi 50″ which lets you host 50 domains and unlimited MySQL databases. There’s also reseller accounts and dedicated servers for more professional users.

To top it off nativespace offers carbon neutral hosting as standard.

Pipe Ten Hosting Review

Pipe Ten Hosting ( http://www.pipeten.com ) has been hosting WordPress websites for customers in the UK since 2002.

In this Pipe Ten Hosting review we are looking in particular at what they can offer for WordPress webmasters. Firstly we look at if there are installation scripts available to make installing WordPress as easy as possible. Here Pipe Ten have something called EasyApp which makes installation a breeze.

Next we look at the packages available and it’s good to see that even on the cheapest package with Pipe Ten, it is possible to host WordPress. The cost of each of the hosting packages is inexpensive and customers can save money by signing up for a year and getting two months free. Pipe Ten’s servers are based in The UK which should mean fast loading times and some SEO benefits for anyone targetting UK customers.

Finally we look to the support and guarantees offered by Pipe Ten and things look good here. The support staff are UK based and available 24 hours a day. One reassuring feature on the Pipe Ten website is that they actually display the average time it has taken them to respond to support tickets that day. There is also a 30 day money back guarantee and it’s good to see that they offer this on a “no questions asked” basis.

Every so often a new company / product launches and a million would be entrepenuers have the same collective thought :

They have created a package of domain+hosting+wordpress+themes+plugins which is just a win win, it saves time and makes life easier for wordpress bloggers – especially useful for first time bloggers or an established blogger making the move from the free version of wordpress to the freedom of self hosted wordpress.

There are a large number of included themes to choose from as well as optional upgrade to premium themes. Also bundled are some popular plugins to make your wordpress experience more even more user friendly.

Well worth a look – http://page.ly – and definitely a good place to get started with self hosted wordpress.

WebHosting UK (webhosting.uk.com) are a UK based hosting company that have all I like to see when considering hosting for wordpress. Even with their shared hosting package they have cpanel control panel equipped with Fantastico for the pain free one click install of the latest version of WordPress as well as other open source applications such as php forums, Drupal and Joomla.

One stand out feature – especially useful for developers and affiliates is that you can host unlimited domains even on their cheapest Linux hosting shared packages. A dedicated IP (said to be good for SEO purposes) can be added to the Linux hosting as an optional extra. The data centres they use are in The UK as is the head office and support which is normally a good thing. When looking at hosting reviews,  most negatives are about offshore or ineffective support.

The company has some more encouraging features too – a 30 day money back guarantee, free transfers for existing websites, their own lively forums and 24 / 7 support.

Webhosting.uk.com Hosting Promotional Code

The best code we know about for WebHosting.UK.com is WHUKMAGIC which will give you a flat 10% off. This promotional code should work for an order on all their hosting plans.

EZPZ Hosting Review

EZPZ hosting is a relatively small web hosting company started by a group of web designers when they became frustrated at the performance and support of a large hosting provider. With EZPZ you get great value UK hosting with good service.

Now I need to start by disclosing that EZPZ host this site, so if it’s slow you know what to think ;-)

So far I have been very happy with EZPZ hosting. The speed they answer my queries is in single digit minutes – it’s always nice to see that the after sales service is as quick as the pre-sales ! I have had to do a couple of technical things like request a restoration, and also used the automated back up system to restore a site I made a mess up of (they auto back-up 4 times day) and both were fine.

I find the cpanel very practical, mostly using the file manager, and of course fantastico for easy installation of wordpress and other programmes.

Sign up process was fine, no hidden costs and a very fast set up with plain English instructions on how to get started. Few minor points I noticed – they take paypal or credit card via Google checkout, they are carbon negative and have the 30 day no quibble money back guarantee that I always like to see.

Small and friendly ? You decide.
