Looking for UK hosting because of support; it's a pain in the **** / ass waiting for 6 / 7 hours for support to open.
That's not a problem with decently sized US based companies, because they will have true 24/7 support, and definitely not a problem with a huge host like Hostgator etc.
Keep in mind though that many hosts make a difference between support and sales/billing. While support is often 24/7, billing can be 9 to 5 Monday to Friday.
I would not suggest Godaddy, because I found their servers to be slow.
