The Search for a new Web Host

The Assigned Project

One of our website's, www.inputyouth.co.uk, had to be moved from one host to another. The move was to accomplish three main objectives.

These were:

  • To lower the yearly cost by at least £30.
  • To swap from a Windows to a Linux server.
  • And to find 1st class customer and technical support by reading independent reviews.

After much deliberation we finally decided to try one of the hosts recommended by PC Pro in their Reliability & Service Awards of 2009 - Fast2host.com.

Fast2Host is a British company focused on providing web hosting with top support. And it shows in its results, with 95.8% of its customers happy to recommend Fast2Host to friends and colleagues.

The Input Youth account with Fast2Host was set up on Friday 2 October 2009. We selected the Linux Enterprise package which has 100 sub domains, 50 email accounts and a LAMP configuration (Linux, Apache,MySql and PHP). The whole set up can be managed using CPanel V11.

Changing the TAG

The TAG change from the old host toFast2Host was complete on Saturday evening and the whole site was uploaded and working on Sunday 4th October. A pretty stella performance. There were no hitches along the way even though the Input Youth site has a WordPress blog and several film shows to slightly complicate matters.

Our Final Thoughts

This superb hosting company have been trading since 1999 and seem to go over and above what other hosting companies typically do for their clients. Their service and support are exceptional, which is borne out by the many positive reviews that litter the Internet.

So far we are extremely happy with Fast2Host. The Input Youth website has experienced no downtime and even loads a bit faster than it used to.

Fast2host are a superb web hosting company who offer loads of useful features as standard. Other hosting companies may well charge extra for these goodies.

So, if you are looking for a good quality hosting solution providing the latest technology at the best possible price, look no further than Fast2hosts.
