Can anyone suggest a very reliable supplier of Windows VPS hosting in the U.K?
I am yet to find U.K. hosting reliable enough for my sites. I signed up with my current VPS hoster over a week ago, and still I am not able to host anything.
Has anyone tried a few different ones and decided upon 1 being the most reliable?
Is VPS hosting reliable, or do they all cause large amounts of downtime when there is a problem? I have never experienced such downtime with shared hosting.
I must host SQL Server 2008 Express, ASP.NET 3.5 and Report Viewer.

1&1 are very reliable, i've got a couple of VPS accounts with them and no problems at all

Someone I know has recommended MEMSET so I will give them a try. If that does not work out then 1&1 will be next.
Thanks for your suggestion.

A very quick summary of my experience – bear in mind I had no experience when I started. I tried:
webhosting.uk.com – their Plesk panel couldn't do what I wanted, so I decided to look for a host with DNP.
cyberhostpro.com – they were ok and helpful and I stayed for a while. They didn't offer many extras compared with their competitors and I was concerned also about what would happen if my site grew - they didn't
offer a dedicated sever (I should have spotted this before).
eukhost.com – ordered VPS with DNP. Unfortunately, I think they were new to DNP and they really struggled with the setup. One week later they asked me to go with Plesk instead.
ultimahosts.net – US Company recently launched UK servers. I'm with this Company now and things are going ok - reliability, service, etc. Early days and my site isn't busy yet, so time will tell.
