How do I sign up to use a Sharepoint site?

What is the best site to sign up and start using a Sharepoint site in order for me to transfer and use MS Access 2010 databases developed for in-house use?

Hi

AccessHosting.com looks good.  I think the only way to compare this with Office 365 is to set up a trial account with both, and test them out with your databases.

Hi

If I understand your question correctly, you have some Microsoft Access databases and you wish to link these to SharePoint, so that your data resides on the server.  And you are looking for a hosted SharePoint solution on the Internet, rather than setting up your own SharePoint server.  Is that correct?

Yes, I am still looking for the best option where 5 users can share the data via a SharePoint site. Do you know whether or not AccessHosting.com is as comparable as Microsoft SharePoint online services? Any suggestions or comments are welcome.
Thanks,

No new information was provided. But I appreciate the effort. I was looking for someone who had experience and actual issues about the procedure.

Sorry I couldn't be more help, Lisa.  Few companies are using SharePoint Access Services at this point, and even less of them will be doing it using a hosted service.  I would be surprised if any Experts here will have tried the 2 services that you've identified.

So, from your perspective, what is the best way for a small non-for profit organization to move a database to the web/cloud computing? Is SharePoint a reasonable approach? What would you recommend? Users are comfortable creating queries and reports using MS Access.
Thanks,

Yes, it sounds like a reasonable approach, albeit one that not many organisations will have tried before you.  You'll need to be prepared to forge some new ground...

Thanks again ... I had hoped to learn from you Experts, without having us forge some new ground. I appreciate your effort!

Best,
