GeneralWeb-host question - m6.net Pin

I am volunteering for a local non-profit organization setup their new website. It's an entirely DB-driven website so what we need is SQL server space rather than web-space. Most hosting packages give 5-10 GB web-space but usually only about 250-300 MB SQL storage space. I've asked my webhost (the one I use now) if they could offer a customized plan and they only offer VPS hosting which is more expensive, and for the budget we have only offers really low-end packages (example just 1 GB memory).

I came across m6.net which offers some nice pricing : http://www.m6.net/prices.aspx[^]

Their Flex hosting plan is $7.75 / month and gives you 50 GB SQL space, not to mention 250 GB web space (that we dont need). Has anyone used them? I am concerned that they are so affordable given what they are offering.

Can you also recommend any other webhost? We are looking to spend not more than 120-130 annually on this, and need at least 5 GB sql space to use. We'd also need ASP.NET with MVC 3 but I can't imagine a Windows host not having that feature. Note that we specfically need SQL server (since we are using EF).

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Nish
