    Question Starting a new business eCommerce website, who to host with?

    I'm starting up a new business based around an online shop...

    I expect it to be very slow starting up and low visitor numbers, as I'm going to be investing pretty much all of my money into stock...

    So I've been looking at Heart Internet, Fasthosts and Daily.

    After early research, I decided on Heart Internet... However, their basic package doesn't provide any databases, and shared SSL on all their packages costs additional £49pa.

    Fasthosts offer cheaper hosting that includes databases and SSL, although I've read a lot of bad reviews...

    Then I stumbled across daily.co.uk, who are cheaper again, and offer all the things I need, and I've not found bad reviews as bad as fasthosts or heart... but is that just because they are a smaller company? - I'd heard of heart and fasthosts before...

    So can anyone offer any advice?

    EDIT:
    So after reading some posts on here already... tsohost sound good... I've also heard qiq mentioned?... and also vidahost (but are they just a reseller of tsohost?)... But how on earth are their prices so low?!?!?! £14.99 a YEAR?!?!?! how?

    They keep popping up as a recommended host on WHT. Which is as good enough review as any.

    As always, I'll throw Evo hosting in to the mix.

    There are so many hosting services out there these days. I think you should keep in mind the a cheap price doesn't necessarily mean a good host. I would go with a recognized eCommerce host as they have better security features. If you need any help setting up your website I would recommend these guys http://www.1and1.com/amazon-ecwid-pa...roduct-options. When I set up me eShop they showed me some features that I had never seen before but really helped make the process a whole lot easier. And of course my customers loved it.

    Hope you get set up and running in no time
    Sarah
