Maybe Nick they could get a better deal out in the US!
I mean, I host my personal site http://www.bunder.com with a US firm for
$25 a month and the features and functions I get for it would cost much
more than in the UK.

Anyway, this is such a small point, I don't understand why you have made
a big issue of. Maybe the issue here therefore is the cost of hosting
in the UK compared to the US. The fact that if you host in the UK you
pay 17.5% VAT on your fees whereas if you host in the US, you are paying
in dollars and there is no local taxes to be paid.

Sure, people are going to go for the US option unless something is done
in the UK.

Methinks someone doesn't understand the difference between a domain name
and the location of a particular server.
