How is any future domain change connected to your hosting?

The ISP I've been using links the web space to a particular domain. If you use a different domain name you have to buy another hosting account, they are not transferrable with this ISP.

Krystal is the business-facing other half of my recommendation above - same company, different brand and targetting.

After much research I decided to go with krystal.co.uk which is the same company as smarthosting.co.uk as Desmond said. I spoke to them via live chat and although you get less for the same price, I need so little hosting space that the Krystal plan was sufficient but has a few advantages with speed etc.
I am sure they would not mind me quoting an excerpt from the live chat which explains the difference:

Krystal: Actually Smart is much cheaper, for example the starter package at Krystal is £2.99/mo and includes 5 GB where's for the same price you can get unlimited at Smart which is £9.99/mo at Krystal. So in short Smart Hosting is much cheaper, but Krystal has a higher uptime 99.99% and the servers are much less populated which offers a performance and speed perk.

Me:
That means if I only need 1GB of hosting space and low bandwidth - I'm quite specialist - it would be better to go with Krystal for the up time and less populated servers?

Krystal: Exactly. With these requirements you would benefit from having the starter package with Krystal.
