I want to go ahead and add two, since it's the same company but is technically separate between their free and premium hosting services.
I searched and haven't seen them mentioned yet, so:

Host Name: x10hosting
Notable Features: Free CentOS Linux hosting on LightSpeed web servers.
Pros: It's free, bandwidth and storage space are unlimited
Problems: Occasionally downtime because of unlimited storage (depending on which server you're on), usually fixed pretty quickly.
Overall: It's nice to start out with, test some things, etc... but eventually you'd want to upgrade to premium for a real community/site.

Host Name: x10premium
Notable Features: Cheap CentOS Linux hosting on LightSpeed servers
Pros: It's pretty cheap - $6.95 for a months worth of unlimited everything including bandwidth/storage, MySQL/PostgreSQL database 'slots', support tickets included. OR $3.95 per month for three years of hosting and a few other plans that they have- I thought the monthly hosting was most notable though.
Problems: I haven't run in to any problems using it so far for the ~5 months that I've used it.
Overall: I liked it a lot and I would recommend it for sure.

Host Name : UZR Hosting
Notable Features : Cheap, outstanding support, I have experienced no downtime (in just under a year)
Pros: Cheap, customisable packages to suit your needs, great support when needed, website management options are available.
Problems: VPS prices are a little on the expensive side...
Overall: A great host, I'd give it 9/10 overall.

I use Zen Hosting




  • Linux
  • Apache
  • MySQL
  • PHP
  • Windows Hosting



  • £3.99 a month (before VAT) for bronze package.
  • £9.98 every 2 years for ".co.uk" domain.
  • Great support.
  • Secure thanks to Linux hosting.






  • Had to create a php.ini file to increase the PHP memory limit.
  • Ask your host before doing this your self. Like I did. If you use a lot of plugins then you need to do this otherwise you risk destroying your WordPress installation.


Location: Manchester, UK




Honestly this is a great host.  Had no issues apart from minor technical hiccups when setting it all up. Great for setting up a WordPress installation, or for creating a portfolio of work.
