Web hosting for Not-for-profits (advice needed)
I'm currently working on a pro-bono project with some fellow designers to help a recently started Not-for-profit organisation. The NFP is a group of refugee women who have started making handicrafts & jewellery and they require a website in order to raise their profile and sell their goods online.
They have some questions regarding web hosting which I'm currently unsure about, and wondered if someone could point me in the right direction...?
- Can anyone recommend any suitable web hosts? We're based in Aus, so is it better to go for an Australian hosting company?
- They have a domain name in mind - can anyone recommend a registry, or do you recommend registering the domain with the host at the same time? If so, what are the benefits of this?
- Does anyone know of hosts that offer discounted rates for NFPs?
I'm hoping someone on here can help me answer a few of their questions. As a UX consultant I'm not usually involved with this part of a project, but I'm working on this in my spare time and want to be able to offer them some advice.
Thanks in advance,
