.On my website https://norm4webdesign.co.uk I have used for hosting TSOhost, for this site and https://logolfminscot.org.uk, I have used this host for many years.

For another site, we selected for Hosting  Siteground and made a migration of the website to Siteground from another host, successfully.

The SSL, secure server status on TSOhost, is at a price, though they offer free encryption for a period.
Siteground offer full SSL as a standard with no extra cost.

Finally, the choice of Website Hosting is yours and there are many to choose from in the marketplace, should you need any further information or assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
