I've just bought a cheap Mr Site package but then I'm computer orientated and enjoy starting from scratch. I've heard good things about Prestashop though :wink:

I wouldn't, I am too much of a control freak and also enjoy the challenge of setting up a website from scratch.

I would say the decision should be based on whether you enjoy the technical side of it or not. WAHM cart is great if you just want to set up and go without worrying about all that.

I can recommend this lot for hosting:

I'm sure Mr CM would approve of them too. :wink: :giggle:

We use the free plan which comes with everything you could possibly need and more.

I'm not familiar with them personally, but hell you can't go wrong for £0 or £5 for that matter. Worth a try and if you don't like it you've lost nothing. Both those accounts would run a small shop and your email. That's why I don't sell entry level hosting any more. lol. You wouldn't believe how many other similar offers there are out there.

If you have a look at the inclusions here:

http://www.5quidhost.co.uk/hosting.php

it mentions a free Magento install, which is a pretty good shop application.

http://www.magentocommerce.com/

It also mentions Fantastico, which is a simple auto installer for many many other free website applications including some other shops.

What are they like for reliability/uptime?

We use them to host Jenna Knits (and plan to transfer our own site too) as well as recommending them to our customers. We've heard nothing but great things about them. The support is fantastic, they are all very knowledgeable and incredibly helpful.

They get rave reviews here too:

Providing you agree with all their decisions, not try and have an opinion of your own or challenge theirs in anyway then they're great.

We found it very easy. Obviously there's a learning curve with any new software but the CMS and other software provided is very good.

I use WAHM Cart and its brilliant for what I need, simple to use once you have had a play around with it, always had fantastic support and the people who run it have always been helpful and the mods are lovely as well :)
