My requirements for my two domains are not much. I have a
"Professional" domain I'd like to have a bit of a business-ish front
on it, and a "Personal" domain I'd like to use for a bit of blogging,
sharing photos and files with family, that sort of thing. I registered
my "Pro" domain in 2002. I'll start using it as intended any day

My SO currently just needs to put files up and let her boss take them
down, possibly with HTTP auth. Longer-term, she may wish a bit of
portfolio of her work. "My" fourth domain is actually my Mom's
website, mostly for family photos at the moment, though she may end up
putting some family research on there.

So nothing that is high-traffic. I don't necessarily need five 9's.

While I'm not interested in it now, I'm glad it is pointed out for
possible future use. Right now I just need bit storage somewhere.
