Are you looking for a .net host in the UK?

If you’re struggling to find a good host for your .net based website then you’re in the right place.  We’re going to look at who are the best providers of hosting for .net apps and sites in 2023.

The hosting providers we’re going to talk about are all providers we’d be happy to pay to host our own sites and apps for us.  If you pick one of these we honestly believe you’ll have a great hosting experience.

Why are we recommending other providers?

For starters, we don’t offering .net based hosting at the moment, sure, you can run .net core on our Linux hosting, but we’re no way near as familiar with running .net apps as we are with PHP and Node. Secondly not every website is suitable to be hosted with us (see: 5 reasons why isn’t a good fit for hosting your website) and we sometimes get asked which provider(s) we would use if we didn’t use our own services.

Unlike most websites you’ll find in Google with a “Top 5 hosting providers for your business” or similar, we do not make any money from the providers we are recommending, a lot of the time the lists of top providers are really just a list of the top 10 provider who pay the highest commissions to their affiliates.

We initially wanted to include at least three hosting providers in this list, but we honestly couldn’t think of a 3rd provider we’d be happy to use right now due to various buyouts and consolidations within the industry. If you’re working with an amazing Windows based web host then let us know and we’ll take a look and see if they can be included.
