I'm looking for a good hosting provider in the UK (in or around London), and need two options:

1. Shared hosting - Windows based with support for SQL Server 2008

2. Dedicating hosting (can be physical and/or virtual)

I'd prefer suggestions for providers that GZ users are already using.

1&1 is one of the biggest hosting providers in the UK and they have Microsoft shared hosting plans.

My main customer has had a dedicated server with them for about 4 years and all I can say it that just works, I don't think he has even contacted them because of any issue, so I can't say much about their customer service, apart from it's stable :)
