Just want to say that publicly WordPress.org professes that there are
no monetary relationships between their site and their "suggested"
It seems to me impossible that there are not some financial ties somewhere.
But I would select a medium-sized hoster, not something outrageously
big, but also not something you have to maintain yourself. If you can
get sysadmin support included with the package (for when things go
amiss in your manual configuration/configuring) that is a definite
plus and the whole reason you'd go external.
I would suggest Rick Timmis clearly outlines what dependencies might
come into play in choosing his company, they sometimes say only the
sun rises for naught, I mean that. Don't get into some form of
personal relationship that migth get at stake when the personal
relationship with whomever is involved would go sour, if any chance at
I think Rick's proposal is good but there have to be clear agreements
nonetheless. Confusion needs to be avoided as to what is required of
whom and if anything is asked in return, and if, what.
Just my two cents. Personally I would probably choose a cheap hoster
with SSH and FTP that I have good experience with (if any such has).
You want email support. I would choose Rick Timmis' company if a fee
was asked in return, say a cheap offer of 2/month and then there is
still a monetary agreement (so it's not entirely for free) but at the
same time you are with friends and you can count on good lasting
You are a customer and a friend at the same time. I think it can't get
better than that. But don't do it for free entirely, would be my
suggestion and mild warning.
I think that's important because you want to remain free to go
elsewhere without insulting the relationship or breaking a friendship
in the process. If you are now discontent about Rick's company you are
in trouble because you can't look a given horse in the mouth. And you
will have a troublesome relationship where you must always take care
not to offend the one who has given you.
That's why you must not readily accept such gifts. Try to give a
little money in return and it is at least a real customer relationship
with requirements and rights and demands.
My two cents worth of advice, at least....
