    Hi -

    A friend of mine is looking to start up a small business website. I've got some design experience with Composer (yuck!) and Dreamweaver (ok)....

    But I need to find a web host for him.

    He's hopeful that the site will get a lot of traffic, and he plans on putting catalog material up there (lots of photos). He'd also like the ability to have e-mail come to the site, and perhaps even host chats there (with clients, etc?)

    Anyway, I'm totally ignorant about that stuff, and in doing a few web searches it was hard to tell one from the other.

    He obviously wants 0 pop up ads or anything like that. He said he wouldn't mind paying about $250 for a year (and then see how it goes).

    Any recommendations? Is that even reasonable?

    Thanks

    Check out Future Point .

    I host a site there and in the last year have had zero problems. Very reasonable pricing and has all the tools a site would need. They will even register your domain name for you at no charge. [​IMG]

    Good luck

    Have you tried searching the forum? This has come up several times in the past. There should be many good suggestions in previous threads.
