The £5 Plan
We don’t mess about at 5quidhost. We know how important your website is, and we know how frustrating it is to deal with untrained support monkeys.
So we don’t have any - just hardcore techies who are ready and willing to do your bidding.
Don't take our word for it - there are over 900 genuine, independent, positive reviews of our cPanel hosting service to be found on the Internet at large, with more added on an almost daily basis by happy customers.
Joomla hosting is a speciality, but our PHP hosting service is also ideal for WordPress hosting and Magento.
We're happy to assist with moving your site to our service from another host, at no additional charge.

We specialise in LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/Python/PHP) hosting. LAMP is the archetypal open source hosting platform. Linux is a UNIX-like operating system, Apache is webserver software, MySQL is the database software and Perl, Python and PHP are web scripting languages.
According to Netcraft over 65% of the Internet’s websites use Apache hosting. O’Reilly reckon that LAMP is ‘the platform of choice for the development and deployment of high performance web applications. It is solid and reliable...’.
You could run PHP scripts under Windows with Apache, but we prefer to use the industry standard for reliable PHP hosting. 5quidhost don’t think there’s a better platform for PHP hosting, or for web hosting in general.
We also offer low cost Joomla hosting, which runs on top of the LAMP platform. Joomla is a Content Management System (CMS) which allows anyone to create professional looking websites that can be updated and managed easily, without an in-depth knowledge of PHP scripting, MySQL and web design.
Joomla can be installed on your hosting account free of charge (even if you only have a Level 0 free hosting account) using the Softaculous automatic installer. Or, we can install it for you at no extra charge. You can learn more about Joomla on their website.
We don't offer SEO services ourselves, but we're happy to point you in the direction of this Search Engine Optimisation site from Steve Dawson that contains a variety of tools and information you may find useful.
