So heres the deal, my cousin has a B&B in Europe and wants me to make a basic website for her.

I've never built one before so this is new territory for me. I was thinking to register the domain with something like

Now, which hosting service should I opt for? I'm thinking about basic HTML here since I know it pretty well, maybe multi-language, with a form for bookings which emails it. Can that be done with HTML? Also, will the location of the host be a problem? most of the customers are European.

I was also thinking about registering the domain as .travel since its a B&B. Good or bad idea?

Suggestions welcomed.

hmm can't be more happier with for me for both hosting and registrar. .travel is a 'long' domain, but I would say most of the addresses will still be available, so good options. Godaddy hosting not the cheapest one but the middle of the road one has an automated system for installing joomla, drupal etc for you.

Edit: it's called godaddy hosting connection :)

have fun.
