I have been looking for a REAL + FREE webhosting server.
I have always thought that i would one day buy my own domain and webspace but the problem is that inorder to get some money i need to work on projects on rentacoder.com (slave labour for coders) Mean while inorder to attract customers i need to learn more programming and make a sample website of my projects etc.

Short : i need some reliabale + free + php + mysql webhost

i really dont like posting in forums for no reason as many of the free webhosts require 50+ postst a month.(personlly i think its so lame)

if you know a free host let me know ..if u can lend me some space for say 3 months it would be sweet :D

and mods i am asking for a suggestion ..so dont come running when ppl suggest and u call it advertising

peace

If you don't mind the fact that it sometimes gets really slow, 50Free is quite nice. I was using them before I started using the paid hosting which i'm using now.

Hm...
Solution 1: ask your friends who have broadband and whose ISP doesn't block port 80 (i.e. not Verizon).
Solution 2: build a machine out of junk ($200 is more than enough money), put linux on it, and forward ports 80 and 22 to it (no need to set up a full DMZ).
Solution 3: get a $5/month shared hosting, and use Google ads to recoup some of the costs (viable if you will be hosting popular content).
Solution 4: get a $5/month shared hosting, and pay $5/month. Your love for Linux is worth $5/month, right?

Hi there,
Does anyone know of a hosting site that has a free hosting plan with over 100MB of space?
I also would like no ads, and PHP for message boards.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

We'll i host for free, I usually give out Unlimited space php,perl,cgi,asp,fronpage. Cpanel FC4 webmail etc etc..

For free the only drawback to that is that i host off my petty DSL line at home 512Kbs upload, And my server will currently be down for about a week due to me moving to another house.

I currently offer subdomain hosting under 3 domains.

bcstechusa.com - down
bcswireless.net - down
yourowndisaster.com -down

external dns servers.

Video tape that toaster, and then slashdot that!

Also if you want free service. My buddy down the hall hosts some websites on his extra bandwidth. http://synced.org/sfn/ (If it sucks, don't say I didn't warn you)

http://evonet.ro

1gb, ftp, mysql w/phpmyadmin and no popups. It's romanian, and I don't know a bit of romanian but I still managed to sign up without a problem. Decent speed for a free host (30-60kb usually, I think; at home I've only got 256kbit so it's hard to tell for sure).
