Small Company Web site hosting?

Hello.
A pretty small business I work for would like to set up a simple website, which would mostly be just to have a web presence, have some info and photos of our jobs and designs, and the only interactivity would be an email link and a request information form. (probably less than 10 seperate pages) We'd like to be able to have a simple address too...(no popups)

Could someone suggest a web site service that would meet these minimum requirements at a relatively low cost? I looked at homestead and a few others......I am familiar with and have Frontpage if the web service doesn't have their own sitebuilder (like homestead.com does)
Thanks in advance

I have several sites hosted at UplinkEarth and am happy with the service. They offer Windows hosting (which is something I needed) starting at $4.95/month, cheaper if you pay on a quarterly/yearly basis. I've not noticed any downtime in almost 2.5 years. I wouldn't trust a business site to a free/nearly free host, just because of reliability issues.

I am doing this same thing. I want to create a simple website for a new business. I need to register and host the thing somewhere. I would rather use a single place for simplicity's sake. I am willing to pay a reasonable amount.

Can anyone recommend a good site to do this?

Thanks!

I use www.godaddy.com for registering, and currently I use www.8-95.com for my site. They are the low cost side of www.Dixiesys.com , which if read at webhostingtalk they are considered very good.

I'm very happy with them. I've never noticed any downtime, they have webmail, and directAdmin (which is an online control panel - Very nice) You can go as cheap as $8.95 every six months (50MB/1G transfer.

Just like breaux124 I used godaddy.com and 8-95.com for domain name purchases and hosting. I've had 8-95.com as a host for over a year and haven't had any problems. Just helped a friend set up a site as well with it.
