Hi, all,

I've been approached by a non-profit to recommend hosting.  And quite
frankly, I'm not sure where to go on this one.

They're requirements are modest - 200MB disk space and 1GB/mo. bandwidth
are more than enough for what they have.  More would be OK - they want
the ability to expand.

They also need a small number of email lists (double opt-in with
moderation option) and the usual PHP, MySQL (small database), etc.

The only other thing I might have problems with is they need secure
protocol, so they need an SSL certificate.  It could be shared, as long
as it is recognized by browsers.

I do see has the option to purchase an InstantSSL
certificate.  But I'm not sure if that is recognized by browsers as well
as Thawte, etc.

As always, price is a concern.  But they're not looking for $0.99/mo.
hosting.  Reliability is more important, and they understand they need
to pay a reasonable price for that reliability.

Thanks for any suggestions.
