    I'm lookin to buy some webspace with server side scripting allowed (specifically ASP and PHP). :)

    Where is the best place to start looking?

    My isp is Blueyonder so naturally I had a look there but they wanted to charge me £120 for a year! :(

    ASP and PHP will be rare to find...PHP is commonly available on *nix setups whereas ASP is Windows-based.

    So you'll have to have a Windows-based server - Catalyst2 offer PHP & ASP here :)

    They also seem to have a good rating on www.ochostreview.co.uk :)

    Not really - just means you're restricted to Windows. But as you're doing ASP primarily that's probably what you use anyway :)

    I am just about to register a .co.uk domain name with 123-reg.
    Is it as simple as registering my domain name and then transfering the name to say tsohosts to host my site?

    Register the domain, then adjust the nameservers to your host's nameservers in order for it to start working :)

    Most hosts ask you for the domain name you'd like to use when you sign up, however with tsohost I believe you choose a [something].tsohost.co.uk subdomain and then need to fiddle with cPanel's parked domains to setup a domain - ask their support :)

    Thanks for that :)

    I'm now gonna buy the domain.. and I'm going with catalyst2 for the hosting.
    £15 for the year and 250MB space with ssi.. its a steal.. :D

    Also, you can run mod_mono on any *nix environment but I wouldn't install it on a production shared server :)

    Pfft Cobalts, it's not 2001 any more :p.

    Beansprout - I think the RaQs actually run Chilisoft :).

    To the OP, I think you'll be fine with Catalyst2 if you want Windows hosting.

    Sounds like that insane Dreamhost offer with a coupon - but that's not ASP hosting :p

    Ohh sounds like a nice pacakge. I have 20gigs worth or storage that I could do with popping on a nice reliable server.

    How long do you think it will take me to get kicked off? 2 days?

    :eek: thats insane..

    I've still got the option to cancel catalyst2..
    Are there any packages from american hosters that will offer asp??

    Edit..

    I've just had a look at dreamhost and they list their programming section like this..
    Does SSI generally mean asp??
    Just noticed that it says $9.24 a month though..

    SSI are server-side includes, so no it doesn't mean ASP.
