UK Hosting Accounts
Hosting your site on a UK server is highly recommended if your business is based in the UK, and your main target audience is in the UK. A UK server not only gives faster response times, it also performs better in search engines for the UK market. If you require an online presence focussed on the US, we can also provide US hosting accounts at an even lower cost than our UK ones (as online services cost less in the US than they do here in the UK).
Although our hosting accounts are supplied with Joomla, Drupal, and Wordpress in mind, most 3rd party scripts will also work just fine on these accounts (but we only provide technical support for Joomla). We are currently offering a choice of 4 UK hosting plans:
If you are planning a fairly small, brochure-style website, without too many photos or documents for download, then a Starter account should be sufficient for you. If you are expecting a fairly large number of visitors (eg. 500 per day or more), or you have a number of photos or documents, you will probably need a Silver account. Gold accounts should cater for most sites with a high amount of website traffic or a number of photos/documents.
If in doubt, start with a Starter - you can always upgrade later if you need to (or you can contact us for advice).
All plans also benefit from the following features:

* Using an addon domain also uses up a subdomain, as a subdomain is required for an addon domain to work.
** Prices shown are applicable if account is paid annually (lower prices are available on our US hosting accounts). Monthly payments are available for Starter plans and above, but the monthly cost is higher due to increased administration and card processing fees. If you pay annually and cancel your account before the end of the year for which you have paid, you will be given a pro-rata refund for each full month outstanding, so annual payments give better value with no extra commitment or risk.
*** Registration and annual renewal of 1 .co.uk domain is completely free for as long as you host your account with us. If you already have a domain name, you can of course use that with your Netshine hosting account (see this faq).
