err ... the hosting provider should provide reasonable nightly backups, etc.

I use godaddy for a small charity site. It's been reliable (I have a pinger on it), and it's something like $40/year. No backups, but I just keep a copy of the website.

Why do you need ASP for just a few pages?

www.PairLite.com - $100 a year, and unless you get slashdotted or don't know how to compress JPGs for the web and end up with a 100 mb thumbnail, more than enough bandwidth.

She may need a few functionalities in the future who knows. I am not familiar with the fruity technologies such as php, Ruby On Rail and shit like that.

So there.

Too bad, 99% of the web is built on fruity (even fruit showy) technologies like PHP ROR and shit like that.

I've been using http://freedombi.com.  They're reliable, affordable and responsive.  Their website absolutely sucks, but their servers and customer service are excellent.  By way of full disclosure, I now work for this company part time, although I hosted with them long before I worked for them (n.b. this is not the boss I gripe about).

No ASP.NET, but if you need "fruity" features there are people on staff (some of whom look remarkably like me) who can implement features in those "fruity" languages.
