Thanks everyone for reading this. I'll cut right to the chase:

My brother is a budding sports journalist (just graduated from a community college with a sports journalist degree), and has had a site suited for sports fans around Denver. He coded it in HTML, and it was pretty much just a few editorial articles written by him, and people could register and write replies. There were no forums.

He had it hosted by godaddy and it cost him $100/year. For him this was too expensive considering how little content he put up, and I'd like to find him a new host that costs more in line for what he was using (read: a lot cheaper please!), so that he doesn't let his site die (and with it, part of becoming a professional sports journalist).

I would like a reputable site hoster with reasonable rates (perhaps even free, if it isn't ridden with popup ads, and doesn't harvest info), if such a thing exists. Thanks, this is a good cause for a good kid.

edit: I'm not sure if this is the right sub-forum for this; if not, please move

He should check with his ISP to see if they include some web space with his service. If they do, it should be large enough to run a small site. For several years, I ran a a gaming Clan website on my ISP webspace. When the site got too big, I started linking parts of it to a computer in my basement.

Btw, many of the hosting services like GoDaddy have a service where a domain name is redirected to the real URL. For example, when I had as a name, my service would re-direct that URL to my "" actual address. These services can also automatically update for dynamic IPs too.
