My group is looking a web hosting service that would include chat, a blog and a calendar. The actual amount of space isn't all that critical. If we can post those plus an extensive home page and a couple of downloadable PDF's and a few largely-text pages, that's pretty much all we need.
I estimated that we'd probably end up spending about $5 - $7 per month, but we can go a bit higher if need be.
You can easily find good webhosting with that budget in mind. Just look for a host that you can upgrade at any time when you need higher requirements. A host with fantastico will make it easier to install your blog, calendar with just a few clicks.
I think you can fullfill your needs with a simple *nix hosting account with Fantastico, looking at your budget it wont be hard for you to find a reliable host.
Do a Search around this board and you will find it quickly.
Many thanks to all. Much appreciated.
In answer to PTNHosting: Windows as I might be able to swing Linux, but I've got a buddy working with me who took a course in Frontpage.
Transfer and diskspace, I'm not seeing a whole lot needed. Like I said, I expect the site to hold a blog, a calendar, a set of HTML files and a set of PDF files. I saw a plan that offers 25 MB. We'll need more, but it will take us a while to use that much.
I've gone to the sites y'all provided links for. Lot of them look good!
