Recommendations for that age-old question of how to host a website once you have an idea. Please provide a justification for your recommendation - spam will be ruthlessly pruned.

Static

  • Google App Engine (GAE) - OK for infrequently changing sites that you don't want to worry about - Mark

DNS

Basic

VPS

  • Bitfolk - "they provide the server for hackspace.org.uk, their support is ace and they don't enrage me even a little bit" -Alexjs
  • Bytemark - Renski, Nat, Alexjs
  • linode - "I've been using them for a year, no complaints" srimech

  • contextshift.eu - a friend's organisation, servers based in .nl, support over IRC and email. Excellent value, brilliant uptime, very little latency. - Tajasel
  • Idaq - Yiannis
  • Digital Ocean - very nice service, cheap, APIs Mark
  • Hetzner - popular for VMs or web
