Free webhost?

Postby footprintzinthesand » Thu Jun 22, 2006 1:56 am

Stupid question, but it needs to be asked: What's the BEST (or one of the better) webhosts for a FREE personal site? I've been searching for a fucking eternity, no decent results... I've already signed up for a few that ended up sucking horrendously, and i'm currently using Bravenet (eck)... :-?

I'd prefer one with either no ad's, bottom banner's/links only, or pop-ups only... Top ad's ruin the appearance of the whole page... and side ad's, omfg, whoever came up with that shit should be shot... I already have the site made (for the most part), just need to transfer to a better host... I don't need too much space, just enough so that I don't have to worry about going over the limit too easily... I guess i'm being lazy, i'm just tired of fuckin filling in tons of info for what appears to be a good host, and it not being worth the mold growing in your toilet... There are so many (millions?!) that are appealing but aren't quite what they say they are... Any ideas :?:

I used to use this one, but I have my own domain now.....


Oh yeah, and they allow "adult content"!

all the cool kids host their own.

netfirms.com used to be cool, but they got a bit annoying. they do, or at least, used to, allow ssi and cgi, however. that's something most free hosts won't do.

to warn folks, they don't allow dynamic content (ssi, cgi, etc), however.

looks like a nice free one, otherwise!

Cool... Thanks for the suggestions... I have Comcast, and had no idea I had a site included, just found out today... So much appreciation on that... The Web1000 thing, fucking hilarious choice of subdomains (I did have humanponygirl.chokesondick.com for a minute- they also have reallysucksass.com etc.)... it was a bitch to use though, and for some reason when I attempted to sign back in, I couldn't... maybe someone else will have better luck... Yeah, so thanks, I finally have a shitty site with no ad's (but at least there are no ads)... :-)

Oh, and i've also read that they randomly delete the Web1000 sites sometimes, so might wanna be careful about that... have another site set up somewhere or some shit...
