Most prices are also higher because of VAT in the UK! If I host my
personal site www.bunder.com in the UK I would pay VAT, because it is
being hosting in Califonia there is no tax on it at all!

Prices will be higher for a number of reasons, but I don't think British
people are that stupid. VAT is one of the reasons for higher prices!
