easy to create a simple website like that?</b>
If you are using something like Wordpress, then yes. You can start with one of many templates and then basically just plugin your content.
<b>I read that
wordpress is good for this so maybe I should be looking for a host that
has wordpress scripts installed right?</b>
Any paid host will do. Most likely they will come with a one-click installer of Wordpress, but even if not, you can manually install it. Just make sure you get a host that has databases, such as MySQL, included.
<b>Also, how much disk
space/bandwidth do you guys reckon I will need?</b>
Most hosting companies will provide more than enough.
<b>Also, will I need to pay extra for those SSL
certificates or stuff like that?</b>
You will only need this if you are selling things or are asking the user for sensitive information.
