He is welcome to the current design and content, I’m not all that excited about it. I pulled a more complicated design and sold it to someone else since it was being wasted on this service.
As far as the domain name, I offer all of my clients as part of a purchased package domain name management so I didn’t think anything of buying this domain, and I considered it a donation (only $30.00 for 3 years but still) but I’ll be sure to let him know I’m willing to transfer it into his name.

As far as hosting and keeping him as a client I think I’m going to have to call him up and let him know how I’m feeling about it. I will of course offer my services as a web designer and go through the regular process as I would with any client if he is interested but I’m certain that the cost will be too much for him.

I also think I need to consider a more detailed written contract that includes details of pro-bono and free services to keep a hand on the scope of the project and not let this happen again.
