    Talking FREE web hosting..

    Hello all,

    this has been doing my head-in for days now.

    I was wondering if anyone knew a free web host? I want these features:

    AT LEAST 1gb web-space
    Php/mysql support
    easy signup

    Zymic has been counted out - not enough space and unreliable servers..


    Cheers,
    GCoffee.

    If you have high speed internet you can make your own server. I've done it. It's about a 4 hour process if you don't know what you're doing.
    Acer Aspire 3680, Intel Celeron M, 1.41 GB RAM
    Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

    I highly doubt you will be able to get those features from a free host.

    I have considered this but there are numerous problems:

    1) I only have 1 pc suitable for the job - my personal one
    2) I can't leave it on 24/7 - holidays ETC
    3) dynamic ip software for linux is limited..

    Thanks for the suggestion though!

    Maybe, but I would at least like to look.

    No, you can get those features with x10 hosting -

    http://x10hosting.com/

    The only annoying part of x10 is that you have to log in to thier forums every 2 weeks, or your account gets suspended. You get a (10?) day grace period after that and then your account is completely terminated. They don't even bother to e-mail you if you are suspended or on the verge of termination - they expect you to actually visit your website and see the suspension notice there. It's sort of retarded, but I guess the features it offers for free make up for this huge downfall.

    Sign up and enjoy. In the meantime try convincing them to e-mail the user a courtesy notice when they are suspended or on the verge of termination, PLEASE. (Yes, my account was terminated).

    Whats wrong with paid hosting?

    Also keep in mind that most ISP's don't allow internet hosting from home. If you only have a few visitors a day there won't be a problem, but the moment you get allot of visits they will shut your connection down.

    In the and there infrastructure isn't made for this kind of purpose.

    I host my own stuff and I also use http://hostmonster.com

    Thumbs up on the hostmonster. You give them 100 bucks and they totally take care of you for 1 year.

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    I would just like to point out that I want links to free hosts!

    BTW, forgot to mention, but I really need ad-free!

    Cheers,
