    Charity Web Site

    Hi, this is my first post - please be gentle...

    I've just taken over the role of webmaster for a small charity based in the South East of England.

    We have a very expensive agreement with an ISP to host our domain name and provide us with "industrial strength" web hosting. I'm now looking to obtain better value for money.

    From the web stats, I've been able to estimate our needs as:

    - 20Mb of disk space
    - 500 hits / day
    - 200Mb / month bandwidth
    - Support for Perl scripts
    - UK based hosting company (all of our work is done locally - we are unlikely ever to need to reach a global audience )
    - Reasonable access speed and prompt technical support
    - Cost? Well, we're a charity - so as little as possible

    I've already found a company who will host our domain name and now I'm looking for a web host ONLY. If they're cheap / free I'd be willing to subscribe to 2 hosting companies incase one failed or didn't deliver on the performance / service front.

    Can anyone recommend a hosting company that meets the above requiremnts?

    Thanks for your help.

    There will be someone who will tell you to post in the Requests Forum and that you posted in the wrong place (even though you didn't). So I'll save them the trouble and let you know that you can also post here to get offers direcly from hosts:
