needing a host

Hi all, would like some opinions on a reliable, easy to use and reasonably priced host. I am new to this world. Seems like I cant tell legit reviews from paid ads, there are so many out there when I google search. Want a simple site, that offers email and mobile also with an easy to use website builder. Any recommendswould be greatly apreciated

Bear in mind

That so far, mostly spammers and re-sellers show up on such posts.

I'm interested in your easy to use question. That is, as a web master wouldn't you be adept at running Apache and such?

I am helping my daughter who wants to open a site for simple community stuff, we are not pros

Then use a provider with tools.

GoDaddy is often maligned but they and others provide tools and site builders for those that don't want to become a web master, programmer or don't want to employ such a person.

Again, almost all the replies with offers to host invariably are spam. But you should by now know the usual players and costs involved.

-> Why not use a Facebook account for this and skip a web service entirely?

I thinka site would do better for what she wants to do plus for about 10 bucks a month this is a. great teaching and social skills lesson

Sounds like you found it.

Go with the 10 bucks a month and you're done.

However I've yet to find folk avoid learning HTML and more. Maybe someday but look at the conversations here and many require some learning of the technology.

It's also safe to bet that at 10 bucks a month you would never expect support beyond "Is my site down?"

my learning i dont mean code and stuff. Just her taking charge of something and having to interact with people.

All of the above.

I hear you and let's be clear there is no perfect host at any price today. If it is for what you revealed so far I think community centers could easily get by with a Facebook page.
