Which web host?

Million dollar question I know but I'm looking at companies to host my small business website and wondered if anyone had thoughts on good hosts?

Looking at Fasthosts at the moment -good price, built-in site builder etc sound good to me - and have heard various things about them (good and bad) from various parties.

Any thoughts?

must admit do like heart now, after getting to know how everything works. hope this helps.
Plus you can get a free one initially, and it is free, only prob is that if you start getting traffic it goes offline due to going over bandwidth, but this is a good prob to have, so go with the free one to set it up, and as soon as it starts going over then convert to paid. What i did.

OVH can also provide you with proper SSL at extra cost but it provieds a basic SSL with their cert. for free.

Also it is based mainly in france but there is a london base too, you can request an IP from several locations, including France Germany and the UK so with some Web wizardry you can provide contant according to geo-location.

OVH, uk 60gp £0.90/m (works out over all about £13/y)

Disk space with 'High capacity': 600 MB
Web traffic: 20 GB/month
Email accounts of 2 GB: 5
Email aliases: 1000
Email forwarding: 1000
Server Side Tech: PHP
MySQL databases: 1
FTP Accounts: 1
OVH Manager Acces (Inc. MoM)
Plus FREE domain name.

Also full control of DNS.

The next plan is £3.90/m and considerably better but for a small business with low traffic, OVH 60gp is good, plus almost 100% uptime too. and load balanced over several servers.

so I can't help with them. I have tried WebMania in the past, but I needed a bit more than they could offer in terms of facilities at the time.

I currently use Heart Internet, and have been doing so for about three years now. So far they haven't put a foot wrong.
