Hosting for a small website


I have a very basic database driven website which I need to host somewhere. The website has been made in ASP.NET 3.5 with SQL Server 2008.

Does anyone know of a reliable, UK based hosting company which will support these two things? I need hosting around the £4.99 per month mark.

I will not need much space, 1-2GB is fine.

Hi Luke,

Any reason the hosting needs to be in the UK? I find US based web hosting to be speedy and within your price range. Managing US based websites when I was living in the UK wasn't an issue and the same applies now I live in New Zealand.

I use for a number of small sites I have including and And I've used the service for a number of SQL Server driven sites without any issue. At US$7.77 a month it comes in well below your £4.99 a week budget. You can also host 6 seperate sites under this plan at no extra cost and all the bells and whistles are installed ready for you to use.

Hope that helps you out,

Web Hosting / Database choices for a small web application???
I'm proud to say that I just finnished going through David Sussman's Beginning Dynamic Websites with ASP.NET Web Matrix. I'm super excited about building my new web site. But now I have even more questions than when I started. My web site is basically a real estate classified ad site. Realtors, landlords, etc. can login, post ad listings and manage their property list. Web surfers visiting the site can search for properties that meet their criteria, view descriptions and pictures of the properties. I estimate that once the site gets going we will have ads listings for 500 to 1000 pr...

Host pending/Host down
Hello, I have had to change the IP address that GW uses. Everything seems to be working fine except GWIA, which will not resolve any domains and reports "Host down" in the log. The email at the client says "Host pending" and then "Transfer delayed." I think I may not have changed all the IP Addresses everywhere I should, but did go to properties of the GWIA and change the IP Address there. And have restarted the server. Still no go. It is a filter issue, because if I turn off packet filtering it works fine. However, all I did was take the filt...
