Can anyone recommend an affordable and reliable web host in Europe?

Shared hosting or a dedicated server? I have researched this extensively before, and here are numerous providers with examples of their packages (usually the cheapest option). Bandwidth is based on monthly increments and prices are based on yearly subscriptions. Double check the host's web site as the package details may be a bit outdated. Also, the shared hosting providers are generally large storage/high bandwidth options. I have not fully researched small storage/low bandwidth ISP's.

Code: Select all
L = British Pounds
E = Euros
$ = Dollars

Dedicated server:

That's a tough one to answer- what do you want to do with a European provider? There will (at the very least) be questions re. international contracts.

I haven't had much interest in this subject, but as a regular c't reader sort of skim over most reports they have on anything :wink:. They had a test on mid-range providers in Germany in the 7/2007 issue and "" did very well there.

I'm sure that you'd be better off with an English language site, though, and I can't help you there. jase might be able to give you some advice, but he hasn't dropped by here in the last few months.

Looks like TheWizard beat me in answering this one- his info is more useful than mine anyways. :D
