    I no longer use or suggest people depend on NameCheap.com as a primary domain register. They are usually the cheapest to register, but upon renewal I find they cost most. Further anytime I depended on them, I found my site always routed slower... Even when using an outside DNS.

    The reason for this is unknown, but given that the sites were all using different host, geographical locations, and hosting types (managed, semi managed, unmanaged); and the improvement always happened when I transferred out... I was able to repeat this process repeatedly.

    They're good for when you want to first register, but after that I usually transfer them out ASAP. So I guess they're good for getting an extra year at a discount (if you want to go through the trouble).

    Small update... I found out I could use a 30 day trial with DNS Made Easy. I may have to rethink my original stance. Things seem to have improved since I last used them (2 years ago).

    Regarding the above talk of domain names, I tend to stick to Gandi.net or name.com for all my domains.

    ImagineLayer hosting - I actually spoke to a helpful human being today on live chat, and not a robotic generic text talking monkey.

    I can't recommend them highly enough!

    If I had the money and wanted UK based hosting, I would use RackSrv
    I do work for the company, but I also paid for and used a VPS with them for about a year and a half.
    But like nearly every UK company, you do pay a fair bit more than you would in say, the EU or USA.

    Managed:

    http://www.urljet.com/ - Forum specific hosting, excellent support with hourly backups and cPanel. Prices aren't cheap for shared hosting, but it's not typical shared hosting - We're on a highly optimized 16 Core server running Litespeed Enterprise - outperforms any VPS I've used (including surviving DDOS attacks that we only noticed due to high activity in the logs, the server didn't flinch). To get similar service and support elsewhere we'd be paying a lot more.

    UK hosting - https://www.tsohost.com/ - very cheap, very high level of support. Looking through my previous support tickets, average response time has been between 2-10 minutes.
