If you’re just looking to have a play and find out how it works then a local install using WAMP or XAMP won’t cost you anything.

Hi there,

If you’re interested, Magento runs absolutely fine on our Shared Hosting.  Our prices are competetive if you want to browse our site - http://www.nublue.co.uk/shared_hosting/ - and there is a link to our demo site in our signature if you want to have a look at the performance (it’s running on the same service you would be on, so it’s a very accurate indication).

Cheers,

Ewan

I’ve set up Magento for quite a few UK users now with shared hosting if you want to give us a try.

I’m not getting paid to say this (!) - my experience with NUBlue has been good so far.  I’ve only been with them a couple of weeks so early days, but their customer service is excellent, and when you ring up I get the feeling they have a good understanding of the technologies.

If only NuBlue were a tad cheaper, i’d instantly sign up for a year, as i’ve got a Magento Site to get running ASAP and love thier credentials, info, etc.

NuBlue is about as cheap as you get for Magento hosting.  Haven’t had a great experience with them however.  Web hosting, at least on a commercial level, is a case of “You get what you pay for”.  I recommend Xtrahost.

these days any sensible hosting company will support magento… even 1and1 will run it.

there’s this myth that Magento has some really special requirements which is basically not true. It just needs some up to date software (not too much to ask) and that’s about it really for a basic hosting environment.

Of course there is more you can do if you want.

I’ve had good experiences with NuBlue, UKFast and Rack Space - covering a breadth of clients from small to pretty big (you have to be to afford rackspace)

I’ve been using United hosting. Great customer support, had them install magento the first time instead of wasting my time with ssh, backups for the whole site for up to two weeks (came in handy a few times). Also, their support team regularly assist people on the united support forum, even though they have great response times for the support tickets.
Also, load times for magento are quicker than other hosts I’ve tried.

You could try Heartinternet - you need to play around with the file permissions on install (just google ‘Heart internet Magento’ and you should find a tutorial within the Magento forums.

Once it’s on there it works a dream. (especially if you turn caching off - strange I know, but it really does speed things up).

Kind Regards

Pete
