A friend of mine used his own ISP company for hosting. One day he noticed, while in a customer's office, that the firewall had blocked out his site. He had purchased a domain name and had it pointed to his own ISP web space. On making enquiries he found that part of his domain name supplied by his ISP, was recognized by the firewall as blocked content. Although his own domain name was suitable it was the actual host name that was containing the wording that the firewall did not like.
After shopping around a company called UK2.net was found to be suitable.
