ISPs block port 80 for servers... they don't want you doing that.....

I can hook yah up with a good enterprise level one ;-)

If you're in newcastle then there's a few places there that offer online backup and stuff so they're bound to have data-centres, try contacting them and ask? (We had one do a talk at uni, forgot the company he owned, but he said his servers were in newcastle).
I looked at co-lo years ago and decided against it, 1U in red house or something in london with 100Mbps was something like £100/month!

As you are in the UK...

If you go the colo route try to find somewhere within an hours drive if at all possible.

Don't pay attention to any uptime institute tiers salespeople throw at you, generally they just don't work with co-location data centres.

I've worked in and around colo for about 5 years. In that time I've seen some shockingly bad facilities and some blow your mind amazing ones. Most fall somewhere in between and have their positives and negatives. The amount of connectivity options is usually a good indicator of quality, the more third party carriers the better imo.

Oh, **** gets expensive quickly, unless you will be making money co-lo is a bad idea.

What you want is a colocation.

pricing isn't going to be inexpensive for a single server for an individual, I believe it is around 2500 usd pre month for a 48u rack and a 10mb pipe (a set of static IP's included). For a business it isn't that bad for space, monitored temperature and power.
