Morning all,

Is there anyone who reads the list who might have some useful feedback 
on UK based dedicated server companies; I would prefer them to also be a 

 From an initial look around, prices appear to range from around £80 to 
£120 per calendar month for servers that would be ample for my hosting 
needs. Currently pay about £1300 per year but recently there has been a 
lot of downtime with my host and I'm not getting the support I feel they 
should be giving us.

In terms of domains we have several hundred as we buy the .co.uk / .com 
/ .net and several variations on each of our main sites so obviously 
billing and admin wise it'd be better to have one company to deal with 
it all.

I've been looking at:
www.ukfast.co.uk , www.heartinternet.co.uk , www.rackspace.co.uk and 
so far, but as is typical, it's quite difficult to see properly 
independent views on these sites (I visited one review site where a host 
had consistently poor feedback but heavily interlaced with over the top 
praise and scoring which actually gave them the highest score, and then 
another where the #1 host was tied in with the review site).

Of these four Heart Internet have been the most impressive.

If anyone has experience of any of these, or other companies they feel 
are worth a look at, I'd appreciate your views.
