If a website is a static one with a few pages, 100M-200M space is sufficient, but go through some hosting providers, take one for example, the economy hosting plan is as follows: 5 GB Space; 250 GB transfer; 500 Email Accounts; FREE! Software; 10 MySOL Databases; 50 Email Forwards; Forums, Blogging, Photos; metropolis Hosting Community.

The minimum offer is far beyond the space of a mini website, it is somewhat an aircraft carriers to me, as old saying goes, don’t waste grain; thrift is virtue, it certainly waste resources though someone only spends a few dozens of US dollars per year.

To find a suitable partner, I would like to hear your suggestions about hosting providers in US and Europe.

I think you have found it, it's ProZ, but you have to be a member. I have been very satisfied with it and can only recommend it to others.

With FTP account and what your heart would also wish.
For paying members for free

I'm using it since it exists and can only but recommend it. A nice small provider.

For your needs - as you describe them "redred" - hosting through Proz would seem ideal.

I use it with no problems at all and have always found the hosting support staff quick to respond and very helpful.

Deborah
