Web Hosting Help

My sister is trying to set up her website to attract attention to her Graphic Design Portfolio/Work. She has won a competition to do some work for a charity and so feels she might actually be able to move her work further. She is still at University at the moment, so can't focus to heavily on self promotion.

She has designed the website herself, and has purchased a domain name from 123-domains. The problem she has is how to go about hosting it. I've no knowledge whatsoever in this area so was just hoping for some websites or service providers you guys would recommend etc.

The website has quite a few photos and images, but at the moment she wouldn't expect to get anything more then 10 hits a week if she was lucky.

What would you guys do?

Re: Web Hosting Help

Depending on anticipated traffic & the size of the completed site, how about using the Free Clan hosting from Game On??

Im sure Rasher would allow it for such a good cause.

Re: Web Hosting Help

Failing that, 123-reg do hosting plans for small sites like that for as little as 3quid p/m - possibly cheaper. Should be ideal for her.

Re: Web Hosting Help

Thanks for all the tips guys. Ive let my sister know everything, but at the moment she can't move forward as her Mac has failed and is being repaired.

The Mac has now been at the repair centre longer then she has actually owned the bloody thing.

And the moral of the story is.
