    For a 5 page website with very niche targeting, do you recommend free hosting from Awardspace or freehostia? If you have taken on clients who are relatively small and don't have much budget for hosting, do you ever recommend free hosting? I have fornd awardspace pretty good for personal blogs etc, don't know much about the others. Suggestions?

    I never do -- hosting is so cheap today there is no point in it. If they cant afford 1.99 or 2.99 for their business, they are too small to need a site. Also free hosting can have ads/etc as well as possibly being on a subdomain instead of a .com/etc, it just doesnt come off professional to me. And I figure a customer will feel the same.

    Also if you can get a reseller plan, host them yourself!
