Is it a big site or have a lot of traffic?

There are a number of network attached storage boxes around that can host websites and act as an email server.

May be an option if it's not a big task.

Thanks for that. No it is a tiny site, and even when fully developed will be a matter of 10 or 12 pages total. am interested to hear more of the options you mention. The business email is my lifeline so up tiem is key.

I have a synology NAS box that has web server and email. The version I have is the DS209, which is a midrange. 2 discs for RAID. Does web hosting, photo hosting, FTP, and surveillence amongst other things.

I'm with BT Broadband so have a dynamic IP, but I use a dynamic DNS service to point to my IP address as it changes. My biggest problem is not the server, but the router which has a habit of falling over. I think I've only had server issues a couple of times in the almost a year I've had the box, which is on 24/7.

No expert on these things, but it does for me.

I use IXWebhosting.com

They are cheap and very reliable

Unlimited space and traffic for $3.95 month.
Does this look familiar?
