No way! Don't do that!
There are so many hosts out there for way less than that. I am a freelance website designer, and (I don't get anything for my recommendation), but I suggest Bluehost.com.
$107 for the year, and in laymen's terms, you get unlimited everything.
Once you have a host, you can install a Content Management System like Wordpress or Drupal, and choose a theme to have a MORE customizable, larger site than you would with a 5-page template. You might know wordpress as a blogging platform, but it's so much more than that. Check out http://www.stopcrime.org, http://www.nemealsonwheels.org, or http://www.buckeyeboysbbq.com for examples of some wordpress sites. Then take a look at www.wordpress.org.
Bluehost will install it automatically. If you are interested in this but need help, I can help set you up, but PLEASE don't spend $49!! a month for a measley 5 page template when you could have SOOO much more!
