Hosting provider - Fasthosts not good

Post by boiledsweets » Fri Feb 22, 2019 8:41 am

Hi,

can anyone recommend a hosting provider in the UK? I have been using Fasthosts for yonks but their PHP is an old version and they won't let me set System TMP Writable to true unless I'm on one of their really expensive packages.

Thanks

Rupert

I'd suggest Siteground. I think they were founded in the UK, but have since gone since international (mostly Europe/Asia/North America). https://www.siteground.com. They are a little more expensive than most, and you should consider if their shared or VPS plans are within your budget, but you shouldn't have issueds with tmp folders or selecting a modern PHP version.

You probably just need to also search the web , and read up on some web host reviews.

(Moderator: perhaps this question should moved to the "The Lounge" as it's not about Joomla specifically).
