    You are asking a very common question on this part of the forum which is very difficult to answer as it obviously depends on your budget. I am doing some work for a small company at the moment who require a small website and they are on a very limited budget (until they go global <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>)

    They are using http://www.webfusion.co.uk/hosting/ if you want predefined pages you could download a few examples from the internet <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Why try and limit yourself to the UK. A lot of hosts are in different countries and a lot have been moved. So what is in the UK today may not be next week.

    Check around for the requirements and price and go there. I use http://www.1and1.com, and they start at $2.99 (USD) and up per month.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    For 1 & 1, the trade name of a major German company offering bargain pricing in North America and elsewhere, you will want the UK URL: http://www.1and1.co.uk/

    Thank's everyone. Looking at UK vendors in order that I can pay in good old UK pounds sterling! Not looking for anything fancy., just a minimal plain vanilla.

    Re: Registering a Website

    I would like to register a domain name with the suffix .pl, for Poland, eg www.name.pl. The sites mentioned don't allow for this. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Re: Registering a Website

    This is not as flippant as it first sounds, but I have found this link to Google Poland I did a search in there and there are plenty of links to be found on how to register with Poland....may be worth a try <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Thanks' Jerry. Looks good. They don't do web hosting so I can't set-up web pages. Wonder Iif could transfer the domain name to someone who does.

    <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> Don't know about that, pity we don't have any Polish Loungers. We certainly have a group of well travelled mainland European Loungers that may have had some experience of this, sorry I cannot help any further on this <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Re: Registering a Website

    Companies that serve the corporate market typically have local agents that coordinate registrations in country-code domains that are not wide open. Here are some, but I am not in a position to make a specific recommendation to use any of them:

    NetNames - http://www.netnames.co.uk/

    Marcaria.com - http://www.marcaria.com/register/domain/do...?country=Poland

    BB online - http://www.bb-online.co.uk/international/p...h-domains.shtml (found in Google UK)

    No way will I reccommend easyspace, since Iomart took them over gone and spoilt the customer care!
    Took five months to transfer contact details from my name to another, for one domain all within easyspace & cost

    Well, I haven't had any problems - including with customer care, which I have had to contact on a couple of occasions. When were they taken over?
