Can anyone recommend an Irish or British hosting company?
Depending on exactly what you're looking for then options could include (both of whom we use);
hosting a 'database or two' (or more) see http://www.filemaker-hosting.co.uk/
if you want a server (VPS, Dedicated, or cloud) then we've had good success with Rackspace http://www.rackspace.co.uk/
I'm also aware that Rapidhosts (http://www.hostfilemaker.com/) offer a FileMaker solution, though haven't used them personally though the guys from there were at Pause last year, and periodically show up at the FM TechNet sessions, so others may have made use of their services and be able to comment.
Thanks Steve, I'll check them out. I'm with a hosting company based in USA and the latency between Dublin and there is making it unfeasible. The latency between my computer and http://www.filemaker-hosting.co.uk/ is at 60ms at its highest. This is much better than the 200 I'm experiencing between Dublin and America.
The other advantage with filemaker-hosting.co.uk is that the guys who run it are FM developers, so they really know their stuff…
Best of luck.
