Anyone host with Need Cloud hosting in the UK

  • rossagrant


    Hi guys.

    launching a new site in 3 weeks. I quite fancy trying out cloud hosting that is flexible and affordable. Would probably need to be managed as I’m clueless but wondered if were good. I have heard some good stuff about them but open to hearing alternatives.

    Cheers :)

    Don’t do it. I signed up then bailed within days. Got a weird feeling. You’ll get a much better deal with Stormondemand.



    I think they are horrible Ross.. Seriously it has been the worst hosting experience ever. I came there knowing NOTHING about managing my own server, and they did absolutely nothing to assist me with setting up my server. Besides that the Lon-H and LON-E clouds have proved to be very unstable. The amount of downtime is just crazy. Currently I have a great setup at, but that might not be what you’re looking for. But I would not recommend for a unexperienced user at all.



    Ross, take a look at, I use them, the support is great, the prices are great…. I believe that have a setup in the UK as well as the US…



    Wow, thanks for the heads up guys. Won’t be going down that route.

    @pisanojm will check out now.

    Would love to hear from other’s who already host in the UK on a decent, reliable cloud.



    I’d recommend TigerTech and CloudFlare for free CDN and enhanced security. Gee, I feel like I’m an ad. No, I don’t work for them but started using CloudFlare the other day (used TigerTech for a long time). CF cut out thousands of spammers on my site and stopped many threats (hundreds).


    @jasonmartins are seriously bad. I had so much downtime that I only stayed with them for 3 weeks. I’m with now which is the other end of the spectrum in terms of reliability (and price!).



    Thanks guys! It seems like a minefield out there!

    Anyone heard of TSO host? Stumbled across them too in the UK but their cloud hosting plans look far too cheap to be that good? £20 a month they start at.



    +1 for stormondemand

    Hosting is a minefield, finding a good host a draining experience. Packages vary wildly with few conventions apparent, one has the disk space you want but only moderate memory, the next one the reverse.

    Why are you after cloudhosting? is there a specific reason? or, and forgive me if this sounds rude, is it simply as it’s the buzz word of the moment?

    Is there a reason EC2 hasn’t been mentioned? it’s ability to create some unique setups and recover things within seconds unique, however I think it expensive to run 24/7.

    Rackspace cloud? next biggest one after EC2 probably.

    One thing be sure of good, reliable hosting and ‘Cheap’ do not go together it’s an utter fallacy – expect a good – but moderate spec RAM/HD to start from £30.00pcm something with better allocation all round is going to be closer to £50.00pcm
