    Re: Best Free Web Hosting?

    In that case, does your ISP give you any free web space? They often do, and if your username is, say, grantstoner, you end up with a website URL of something like:

    http://www.yourisp.com/grantstoner
    or
    http://users.yourisp.com/grantstoner

    or something similar to that.

    Is that do-able?

    Its only 110mb(100gb bandwidth) but it does offer the sub domains upon registering free

    If you want to leave your computer on 24/7 dyndns is a great service. You get a yoursite.dyndns.org url and as long as your server is running you'll have web access.

    To use ddclinet to send dyndns your ip address.
    You will also need to install a lamp server on your system (but is sounds like you have one).

    I can't leave my computer running 24/7. I take it with me everywhere I go, including school. I use it during most of my classes. And I don't think I do have a lamp server, since I don't even know that is. ^_^

    However, the cost to run a computer 24/7, if you are not already, will be significant. It would certainly remove FREE from the equation.

    Unless, of course, you could set up an exercise bike with a generator on it, and persuade some members of the family to go out and pedal. That would restore the FREE aspect, and be good for the health as well.

    Again, I have no intention of running my laptop 24/7. Plus, I'm pretty sure my mom (whom I live with, and who pays for everything) would pay the electric bill. So it'd still be free to me.

    I just gave you a website (post #12) that has 110mb data free with 100GB of monthly bandwidth, and when registering the free account it gives right there sub domain signup
    110mb.com

    In other words it gives you what you are looking for lol

    http://0000free.com/hosting.html - haven't tried with them, but that's pretty shiny, it supports everything, cgi, php, mysql, etc. You get 10GB Bandwidth and 1GB Space. I'd look into it.

    Re: Best Free Web Hosting?

    Thanks sendblink23, I'll look into that one. Sounds promising. As for 0000free, I've already tried them. I don't remember why, but something compelled me to not use them for more than an hour or so. (I don't remember the reason cause I've been trying one host after another and denying them all for various reasons).
