UK web host recommendations

With so many web hosting companies out there, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. Website reliability and page loading speeds are an important factor in search engine rankings, so it is important to choose a web host providing fast performance and responsive customer support.

We have had lots of hands-on experience and there are two providers that we always end up recommending to clients:

Krystal Hosting

From £4/mth + VAT
Krystal is an established UK hosting company providing traditional shared hosting with UK based customer support. From our experience this company offers good WordPress performance and value, with exceptional customer support. Email hosting is included for free.

Recommend plans: “Ruby” for high traffic or e-commerce websites / “Topaz” for lower traffic websites


From £8/mth + VAT
Cloudways is an international hosting company providing “cloud” hosting plans, with UK based servers available. We recommend this to more tech-savvy clients as the performance is great but customer service can be a bit slow. Email hosting is not included so you would need to use a separate provider for this.

Recommended plan: DigitalOcean 1GB London

Domain registration

Our recommended domain registrars are Namecheap and Gandi. Namecheap provides some of the lowest cost registrations available, while Gandi is a bit more expensive but includes free email hosting.
