... I hope that you are all doing well ...

I am new to 'web hosting;' I hope to obtain enough info to make some intelligent decisions.

I want to establish a site to accomplish:

1. Central location for family information gathering
2. I'll need to establish 'something' to allow gathering of:
photos; data; audio; and videos for each site family visitor ... do not know
how to do such
3. Would like email accounts
4. I do not know how to send/receive data to/from site
5. A chat room would be fine

Probably more if I knew what could be accomplishd.

So, I will ask many questions of the fine members of these forums.

Take care all.
