I'm looking to develop and launch a website, but I'm not familiar with the web hosting providers. I can think of Godaddy and a couple others, but I really don't know what I'm looking for.

The site is intended as consulting and information. Nothing major, nothing more than text and graphics, and maybe (but I doubt it) a message board for the subject matter.

Perhaps the Zeds could recommend a provider? Do any include a URL as well? Any work here as a referral to help with the cost of running the site, kinda like Amazon?

I've only really run sites from free providers (Tripod, Geocities, etc.) so I'm relatively new to this. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I've been using Liquid Web for years and have no complaints.

Lots of space for decent prices and a great control panel to manage e-mail accounts and such.

If you want it to look slick, check out Squarespace.

I have a website that I use for my class, so I mostly use it to post links, assignments, news, etc. I use to register the domain and for hosting and the web software. Total for both services is under US$50 a year, and there are no ads. Designing/developing the site is click and drag, easy to customize and I've been happy. The customer service is really good too, and I did use it a bit when I first started to develop my site.

I should also point out that I have absolutely no programming or design experience and was able to get the thing set up and looking (IMHO) pretty decent for not much money and not much time. A few of my friends with small businesses have used the namecheap/moonfruit combination and have all been very happy too.

If you're interested in the results, shoot me a PM and I'll send you the URL for my site.

Better than IE, but don't dump IE completely. Some interactive sites don't show up correctly in Firefox. I needed to buy stock photos through and couldn't figure out why my lightboxes and selections weren't appearing.
