We are considering changing our host for an existing commercial website in the UK. Does anyone have any recommendations? Reliability is key and servers must be in the UK. Frequent backups and option for SSL important also.

We are also looking for a reliable and customer focused replacement developer for our website for now and future projects.

Digital Ocean have a London based datacentre I believe.
Or Linode perhaps.

Does it matter where this developer is based? Are you looking for someone to be in the office or just contract work (err, 'freelance' as the UK seems to define 'contractor' differently to how I at least would expect).
