Hosting and Registration



Log in to see fewer ads
I have been experimenting lately with some free web hosts. Haven't found anything too special, but awardspace.com isn't too bad other than no SMTP. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any good experience with a free web host that allowed for fairly decent cgi/php/smtp to put up a domain?

On another note, I have never used one of the free domain registrars. Anyone have any positive feedback? I have heard they take a while but I have never tried one.

Thanks,

m

P.S. I know, you get what you pay for. I just have some older, barely used domains that I am helping others with and they just don't want to spend anything on them so I figured I would go get some experience.

Matt,

I couldn't find anything free at prohosting, did I miss the link? I wasn't able to connect to owns1.com so maybe connection/reliability issues? I am trying to stay away from banners like 50megs.com and freeservers.com. So far I have been testing awardspace.com and it is ok, but although I can receive mail, doesn't seem like I can send it...that aint gonna work. Any other suggestions?

-----------------------------------------

Ok, just read the FAQ and I get pop3 for free, but no smtp. Took a look over at freehostia.com it is the same deal. Makes sense for a freebie I suppose. Not really a comprehensive solution but I guess that it will do for now.

Hey no problem, I'm trying freehostia.com and awardspace.com. Other than the no smtp they are both pretty good. Freehostia's support is fast, too.

why not just pay for a cheap host? you'll get more space, better reliablility, and you won't have any ads. I mean with some places hosting for as little as $4 a month... you can't go wrong. That's cheaper than some ammo ya shoot.

for $6.95 a month, you can go to like http://www.bluehost.com/ and get 50G of disk space and 999g of bandwidth.. per month

You get full SMTP domain, you can host 6 different domains off one account, 2500 email addresses.. 24/7 support if you need it..

I am hosted on bluehost and they have been freaking great. You can pay for a year or 2 years in advance, and your done!

Yep

I did that once to get more bandwidth and to do away with the banner adds ..

I went with Freeservers.com never a problem ..

problem is that banner free hosts dont last very long ...

It's not for me. I already have hosting at server101.com, theplanet.com, interserver.net, powweb.com and a few others...actually I have been consolidating most of my "own" at another host. I am just pursuing the free alternatives for a few sites that have very little need of bandwidth, etc...frankly, little need of a web site, but that is there choice.

I used infinityfree.net for website hosting and free email hosting . When my visitor increased, the infinity.net blocked my hosting and said me to update with premium hosting.
