12 bucks a month is too expensive? 2 gig is too little storage?
find me the typical lco that, with proper site construction, has more than a couple of MB used of that storage capacity, and that would be someone with many pics of their work. as a point of reference, chrysler's website could be hosted on that plan, albeit the traffic is another story.
i would always direct a newbie to a company that is geared towards that market any day of the week. you could get hosting for less than that but you also are damn near on your own and don't know whether the money you've paid will vanish with the host and i know icc is on a budget.
now, if icc says he's got a bit of web experience, then sure.
