    Just wandering if you guys can recommend a good web hosting/reseller package.

    Currently pay £60ish a month with Heart but the sites I have on aren't really that important so would rather cut down the £720 a year cost.

    Have about 60 sites but most low traffic, could probs cull half of them.

    28740MB used so far this month so assume double that and bit more per month.

    Ideally unlimited sites/bandwidth/db's etc

    Cheers

    Well mr money bags, we can't all afford yearly invoices lol

    I agree heart are expensive, seeing as companies like whb are only £29

    Plus whb move your sites, there's a week or twos work

    Tell us who you moved to when you do, as i am sure it will help a few people.

    Don’t get me wrong, every time that renewal comes up I have to find a tin of caviar in the cupboard to sell, it kills me.

    I've been using RShosting for years paying £40 a month. You've prompted me to think about reducing my costs there, especially as my Adsense revs are in steep decline.

    WebHostingBuzz are doing a promotion on Acorn right now:

    I haven't used them personally but thinking about switching my sites over when I have some time.

    Use WebHosting buzz hosting standard package unlimited add-on domains will cost around £100 a year
    if you like each site to have its own cpanel then there reseller package is worth a go as well

    Could give UK Servers a shout, you could get a dedicated server with cpanel for your budget and you wouldn't get close to the 10TB a month bandwidth:

    You've got to be confident and competent in managing the server though. It's way too risky just to sit there and leave it running with just software updates. Much more involved than shared or reseller hosting.

    I'd also be a little wary of using a CPU that is 6 years old (the E2220 came out in 2008)...

    He sounded like he knew what he was talking about so didn't know if it was an option, I don't know much but the support guys have always been helpful if I have had any issues but you are right. It is a bit more work to manage the server yourself.

    Well joined and paid but seems your techie people can't transfer sites from Heart to yours ... which I'm surprised about seeing as Heart are pretty big
