Web hosts are a dime a dozen on WWW. My philosophy is that you should hire someone local -- it's easier to get in your car and drive across town with your baseball bat when things go wrong, than listen to elevator music all afternoon.
A couple of referrals:
Nice guy, personal touch. If you mention that I sent you, he may waive the setup charge -- unless you know me personally! Store is extra, but it's a good one with an honest-to-goodness secure server for card tranactions.
Not much after-the-fact personal touch, but if you don't need it these folks make it look easy. Free store -- if you want to work through the learning curve.
That's it for personal testamonies, and they are all local. The ball bat is in the car. No problems to date.
