First post but hopefully not the last.
We are currently using 1and1 uk for our e-commerce store but are now looking to move to a dedicated host . The pricing firms charge to run a dedicated server in the UK are pretty expensive. We are looking overseas but its a mind field and we cannot
afford to make the wrong choice.
Can anybody recommend a good company to go with.
We are with Clook uk
We went with a host in the USA but we were told by lots of people that you should be hosted by a company in the same country as you reside.
Clook are good and reasonably price.

I’m with MK Hosting for the last 4 years. I have X-Cart, Opencart, Litecommerce, a few Joomla websites and CS on their servers. No problems whatsoever. Contact them at [url]http://www.mkhosting.co.uk/[/url]

I’m not sure if they are doing a good job if they host your website. Your homepage took over 10 seconds to load. I didn’t click anything else on your site though, so it may have improved.
Also check their contact details and how easy or difficult is to get in touch with them. Working support phone number is the most important if you’re in trouble.
I had one of the Litecommerce websites on some servers and most of them couldn’t generate the static HTML catalogue. to the end [Resellerpanel, 1and1, Fasthostand some other]. With MK, first attempt and success. The speed is good and CPU usage per user pretty good. Have free trial and see for yourself.

Godaddy is the same way… I couldn’t generate the html catalog either…

This is because the CPU allowed usage was too low. Now, HTML catalogue generation goes like thunder.
I am testing VPS.net at the moment, and so far it looks quite promising to me. It you know how to manage a server, I myself prefer to use Debian, this could a pretty good solution if you need upscalability.
You get SSL-certificates for free, and you also get a free ISPManager Pro license for every VPS you use. ISPManager even let you use Nginx which cPanel won’t let you use.
PS: Stay away from cPanel as it’s quite bloated and it will need at least 512 MB on a server.
Tons of great hosting for less than $10 a month.
Hostgator for the last two years for me, I’m actually running two licenses/website and haven’t had any problems Seems to run smoother with the 2.0!
