    Just wondering if they are any good as they offer 4 year prepaid hosting for under £60 all in and after 4 years charge £2.57 / month

    https://www.hostinger.co.uk/cart/

    Would be for a single website only with low traffic and tempted to buy 4 years.

    Found that a bit to cheap for SSD hosting. If somebody can rec. a another provider. Currently we use Siteground, more expensive but very good. This is for a friends business website as a side project. Dont want him on my hosting.

    If this is the case, does it ned to be great? As long as it can host the features you want and it has the uptime you require, so what if it is a little slower or doesn't have all the bells and whistles?

    I am using a low-cost provider (not SSD) for a simple, low traffic site.. It is clunky and slow, but does the job.

    It's a business expense so get them to pay a little more for some decent hosting.

    Your friend would be on a shared server - so expect slow page load speeds. That's not going to be good for business.

    They’re quite a large company so get mixed reviews. Have you looked at places such as Trustpilot and HostAdvice for reviews?

    In terms of other hosts have you had a look in the offers section here at UKBF? There’s a few different web hosts who advertise in that section.

    Good luck :).
