UK based?

OK, so I was about to buy some hosting from Compila (www.Compila.co.uk) but I've just heard a few "less than glowing" reports about their services, so...

Does anyone have any suggestions for UK based hosting companies with a good reputation, excellent support, reasonable prices, etc.?

I only need less than 10mb of space, but a considerable transfer allowance would be good (upwards of 10gb/month).

Any suggestions? :)

(p.s. I'm looking for established "larger scale" companies, by the way. I'm not interested in hosting offers from invididuals or tiny one-man-band "companies"...)

Thanks Jan and D MaN - I think I've decided to go with United Hosting... Unless anyone can come up with a better solution or reason not to? :D

<Duran, read the rules please. The thread starter was asking for suggestions, not offers and he already decided on a host.>

Hello!

We currently have no issues at our end. Please email or PM me your IP if you cannot access our site. Around a week ago one of our servers was ddos attacked and we blocked a few IP's. As a result of this you or your isp may have been included in error.

You wont be able to ping our servers, even on a good day, as we firewall out ping requests. If you contact our support team they can provide you with a router IP to ping/traceroute to.

Feel free to contact me or the team if you have any further questions or concerns - all systems are go this end.

Thanks for your interest.

Althought i live in Romania, i'm planning to buy Enterprise Resseler package from unitedhosting.co.uk. Me & some friends used their services for a while and i can say that they are AWESOME, even if the prices are a little high.
Go for it.

(delete this if you think it would be best jan)

Unitedhosting, how come your main currency is in $USD yet you are using a .co.uk domain? I.e. how come the sterling pound prices change upon exhange rate, its usually the other way round for UK based hosts.

Also, for your pound sterling prices, you suggest £UKP. The currency is actually called £GBP. Just a friendly tip :)

That's a pretty interesting point... Answers UH? :)

It is possible that the majority use US dollars to compare hosts. If he had it in GBP, people would only ask what it is in USD :p Some people are too lazy to use a converter :confused2
