He is frustrated with the guy that hosts his site (that's pretty much all he does, no content updating).

I know next to nothing about hosting and how to technically produce a web site.

What I do know is that the technical capability is secondary. The important thing is content. Specifically, keeping the content up to date. That's requires journalism or public relations type skills primarily, and technical skills only as a secondary matter.

Lots of very savvy technical people can produce a wonderful looking web site; but it takes someone who monitors it, takes down old content, and puts up fresh content on a continual basis to make a *good* web site. The person who makes the site tick doesn't have to be a technical wizard; he or she just needs to know enough to put up and take down content, and needs to be steady enough to stay on top of it.
