    I think that one thing to be mindful of (in case you had not already picked up on this) is when you submit the request to specify you want it hosted on Linux - not MS.

    That's not really an issue - ours runs on MS quite happily

    Going back to security - Hosting on BGFL will also give a little more protection as it is within the BCC Grid. Every little helps.

    I'm going to shut up now as I'm sounding like a Link2ICT Salesman - I'm not - but the Darkside is strong here

    Knowing how Little-Miss likes to learn new things I would say go the Joomla route yourself, will learn much more that way. Plus you can do it all locally without having to touch your webserver.

    As for the security issue, unless BGFL update peoples Joomla site for them this issue will be the same which ever route you choose.

    Last note on the Security side of things... if you go for an independent host, talk to them before hand about providing mod_security for many of the standard exploits in PHP/SQL as well as specific rules for Joomla. That is an incredibly useful shield to have.

    @Jmoss: I disagree that Joomla is something that anyone can do though.. As with anything you really do need to have some basic knowledge and there is a lot of conflicting information about so it does still require that investment in time. That said, as rush_tech pointed out, there's plenty of help here so it's a case of using/abusing it
