The company I work for is moving its data storage and processing to the cloud—with the exception of the intranet (which the company’s currently paying to be hosted). There’s a feeling that the intranet should be kept separate from the company’s other documents. What are the options for free intranet hosting? Does such a thing even exist? The current system is very basic, and we really just need 200-300 files (Word, Excel, pdf) to be available in simply displayed categories in an area accessible by staff. Any suggestions?

Client requested a single page website. Same client has bought himself a shiny new domain name - www.client.com. Given likely very low volume of hits, I propose hosting that single page under my existing Apache-enabled webspace - www.existing.com/client. How do I set things up such that Google results show client's domain and not my own? Thanks!
Multiple domains- I know how to forward them. I could start a Google account for each. But I'd really like to get the email to forward instead? I want it to be that you send an email to (anything) email@example.com and it ends up going to my main domain/email account.

What is the hands-down cheapest way to store a large amount of data online: say 100GB with say 100GB transfer per month? Bandwidth and transfer limit aren't a priority as long as media files can be streamed right away any time. Why? Because we would all like to put our music collections online. The lowest I've found is about 10 cents per gigabyte.

We're sending out about 55,000 postcards to members of our organization. Those postcards direct them to visit a brand-new website for information on a new program. Assuming that all 55,000 members have at least some interest in the new program (which they likely do, or they wouldn't pay for the membership in the first place) what kind of website traffic should we be prepared to handle during that first week? What specific hosting package (vendor and package name) would you suggest we buy to best absorb the traffic for this project.

I'm looking for a good way to share files with my clients that average about 20-25 MB each.

I'd be okay if users had to create accounts, or if it was tracked by click-through from email links. But it must be private and allow user tracking.
