[lug] website hosting recommendation

I did just give *Gandi.net* a try for hosting a little thing. Not having 
that domain registered with them made their "Simple Hosting" anything 
but. I didn't at first understand why it was so darn complicated:  They 
had me using my domain registrar's DNS servers, instead of providing 
their own.  That's a bad place to cut it -- virtually no high level 
online tools are available to manage the things I would want to manage.  
I even had to dink with my registrar's DNS zone records just to prove to 
Gandi.net that the I actually owned the domain I was arranging hosting 
for.  (Why do they care if they're not even doing the DNS?).  Another 
problem was that I needed to NOT choose the "python" package if I wanted 
to publish directly with SFTP.  (That package requires publishing via 
git).  On the positive side, Gandi.net's technical support for new 
customers was very responsive.
