I'm designing a website for a local theater company. Because this will be their first experience with an online presence, I've also been put in charge of designing, hosting, and maintaining the website.
My first instinct was Yahoo! Small Business or perhaps Geocities, but after visiting their website, I found it cluttered with all sorts of things that are supposed to help beginners design, build, and host their new website.
I'd much rather find a good no-nonsense hosting company that expects me to know what I'm doing, and will leave the designing and other aspects of the project up to me.
Any suggestions as to where I might find a good company like this? All of the pages are pure HTML, so I don't need a lot of hosting space, but the host does need to be able to support a small CGI script (for the online sale of show tickets).
