I intend to set up a website soon. What is the cheapest adequate service to use? There will not be a lot of traffic and the site will consist of text and a few photographs.

If it's gonna be a low traffic site then shared hosting is probs gonna be adequate enough and is quite cheap. Sub-$10/month, and most providers include in their plans 'click to install' easy access to freeware blog/CMS/Forum software for your site.

Not saying it's the best or the cheapest, but as an example check out Fat Cow. That one gives you a raft of website software options, and for a 36 month contract it'll only set you back about $AU250.

Defs slower than dedicated hosting services, buty if it's low traffic that shouldn't be an issue. Hell, back in the day we had PCPP Forum sitting on SiteGround for a while, when we were stuck for hosting facilities. Forum was pretty damned active back then, too, and page loading wasn't slow enough to piss people off.

Depends what platform your website is sitting on . Wordpress? Plain old Html? Something bigger (I doubt it from your low traffic statement).

https://www.binarylane.com.au/ does cheap servers . Super fast. Starting at $5

The data center is in Brisbane in the NEXTDC B-1 facility. Also soon opening a two data centers in the US on each coast.
