Does anyone know of a UK host for OC Portal ? I am currently with Streamline.net who disable exec.

The recommended host on this site is USA based and do not register .co.uk domains.

Anyone help ?

Have the same problem with my US based host not registering .fr and .eu domains.
For all my .fr and .eu domains, I register them in france and point the dns to the us host. Works fine.

Now that ocportal has recommended a host, I would think it has to be an obvious choice. Host staff come on this forum, obviously they want to get involved, they already know about ocp…
Honestly, I wouldn't hesitate one second.

(my 2 cents…)

I would agree with moimaim. Register your domain with any registrar that supports the TLD you desire then point the DNS to your host. Maximum flexibility.

I was always taught its a bad idea to have your domains and hosting with the same company.
Use a domain register like name.com or namecheap.com for domains and a web host like elief and downtownhost for hosting.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Hi Chris,

I see that you've already signed up but I just wanted to let you know that I've also enabled the .co.uk domain registration option for you.

Where not go

I have just left Fasthosts and gone to Elief.com. Kept my domain with them though. Unfortunately they also disable exec and a few others. No wonder OCP wouldn't install.

Fasthosts is one of those oversellers to look out for.
Never host with a host that offers unlimited space and bandwidth as they normally limit other things like you found out.
You should have much better lock with elief :)

I might go with them but I like directadmin and I need shoutcast.
