I am a MASSIVE fan of Vidahost, they are a wonderful, wonderful hosting company, based in the UK. They host this blog, and for my business they host 15 or so of the sites I’ve designed, I also host my two of my friends blogs with them too – Miss Louise Kay (she’s an Adult Star so her site is a bit NSFW!) and Vicki Higham (her blog is mostly cooking!). The problem with having, and hosting big, popular blogs and websites is the amount of bandwidth they all get through in a month can be obscene (and it’s growing monthly!) Thankfully Vidahost and their team of brilliant staff have always been there to assist and have come up with a solution that is both cost effective and scaleable!

If you want to take the plunge and go into the fun world of self hosting I’d recommend them, and you can actually use the voucher code ‘KIPHAKES’ (without quotes) to get 10% off your hosting package! Their CPanel Hosting also has ‘Softaculous’ which will install WordPress onto your new hosting package in a couple of clicks too, fabulous stuff! So if you want to support a fabulous UK company, give them a go!

Note – This may sound like a sponsored post – it’s really not!

    I keep wondering about doing this…. I don’t really know why I’d be doing it though! What would I gain from what I already have with blogger? Advice/help appreciated! And if I decide to go ahead I will definitely use your code 😉 x

      I found blogger far too restrictive, the way it handles images is appalling, and the theme control is dire. I’m a massive WordPress fan, you can change almost any aspect of it, also the mobile app is FANTASTIC. I’m a massive Google fan, but Blogger just isn’t very good.
