    Can anyone recommend me hosts that:

    - Use wordpress (or a similar blog style updating system)
    - Doesn't use FTP - it's not allowed on my Uni network for some annoying reason
    - Has a fairly high bandwidth limit (more than 2Gb a month as it'll be streaming a few .movs)


    Links to the sites would also be incredibly useful :]



    Cheers

    There are plenty of threads that recommend hosts to use. I use A Small Orange to host my site. They offer cPanel, which allows you to manage the site through your browser. Any host will allow you to host your word press blog.

    I'm pretty sure most hosts with management software such as CPanel would be able to accomodate you. You can just upload files through the built in file manager, straight through your web browser. Try www.evohosting.co.uk.

    CPanel is very easy to use. WordPress is included with "Fantastico" which is part of CPanel.

    Fantastico basically provides 1 click installs for all of those programs on your account!
