Mrs C wants her own website for her Pilates business - anybody any experience of buying a domain and having a website hosted ? It's going to be a pretty simple website - just a blurb about her and where her classes are. I don't think she needs all the bells and whistles. Thanks.

May as well find somewhere that'll host a WordPress site on her own domain.

No recommendations but I have the same question!

I don't know anything about websites, but Wordpress is the name I hear bandied around.

Dyn are pretty good IF you can write the site yourself.

Cougs, you might want to try kicking the tyres on squarespace.com- you can setup a trial website for 14 days for free.

I user 5QuidHost for my hosting (they also do a free version too) and they've been great so far.

For domain names I use 123-Reg.co.uk who have also been pretty good, but for domain names I would take a look around as different ones often have differnt offers on for various URL's.

Siteground.

Great value, great features, all in one service including domains. Good support too.

Make sure you can transfer the domain name if required to another hosting company. Many budget hosting companies tie you to their webspace by charging a premium to transfer (and generally making it difficult)
www.blackfoot.co.uk are not the cheapest but offer a good service

We use Tumblr for our running club site. It's free and fairly user friendly.
