Its very fast, 400mb''s a second, multiple lines in fact you would need a hundred or so t3 lines pulling at it before it gets angry.... as for bandwidth - the more you use the better as it means more people are coming on your site and therefore looking at my banner....

Not necessarily too big, but if it''s merely a plug for the host and not third-party ads (like what GameDev uses) then I think there''s no reason for it to be quite that big. Basically it should be big enough to be easy to read and you should summarize hosting stats on the banner (price, "ASP/CGI/FTP", etc.)

From over a hundred viewings nobody wants free hosting? Compared to any other free hoster I giving;

-Very Fast Servers
-Loads of Bandwidth
-ASP CGI-BIN etc...
-FULL FTP ACCESS (no messing with these browser upload clients)
-Much More Space

I Have now finished my pathetic effort to start a community.

Please, come children of the night! and Join!!

Since it is in exchange for showing a banner it''s not free.

People that care anything at all about their sites understand that reliable hosting can''t be free and are prepared to pay for the service provided. Those that don''t care might still not want to act on an offer where a hotmail address is the only contact point...

I work for an ISP host my stuff for free. LOL. As far as you know someone could post source code to linux and most likely use 10 GB to a day. With info and banners to other stuff.

As for the last guys comment about a ASDL are you kidding? Its 1.54 mb not 400 MB. Asking that dumb of a question about speed and the internet is begging to be slapped.

As for the 400 MB you say nothing about SQL 2000 or anything else on your add nor do you say diskspace........ Those are very valid arguements.

Just ping''ed the address and get destination unreachable. 100%.

Which on a tracert says its in london. Yeah I am going to put anything worth while half way around the world. With no way of adminitrating the box its on nor debugging any connection or speed issues to it. And the price of 1.99 tells me I get little to none in the way of support.

Personally I wouldn''t look at this add if it was posted on Gamedev''s main page.

Thanks for that negative thaught of yours

here''s your comments blasted---------------

"I work for an ISP host my stuff for free. LOL. As far as you know someone could post source code to linux and most likely use 10 GB to a day. With info and banners to other stuff."


- Thats great my friend! but my little hosting site is not a Blooming ISP HOST IS IT!!! - banners are a few kb say 15, Its going to take 666,666 (well over half a million) hits A DAY to use that much bandwidth, good one!

"As for the 400 MB you say nothing about SQL 2000 or anything else on your add nor do you say diskspace........ Those are very valid arguements."

- If you READ what i type you would see that I was offering hosting on a basis of get as much disk space within reasoning. One person will need more or less than the next.

"Just ping''ed the address and get destination unreachable. 100%."

- Thats just your crap PC my friend


"And the price of 1.99 tells me I get little to none in the way of support."

- Support, presumption is the mother of all *uck ups. You get very good support. Better than wringing an ISP like AOL, their trainees dont know the difference between broadband and dial up.

So you see my hosting is fast, click on my sites. Its for people who want a good deal and want to speak to people, not an answerphone system.

AND IF YOU READ WHAT I SAID I WAS OFFERING IT FOR FREE

Doesn''t that suck? If you give the person a www.namehere.com/YOURSITE/ wouldn''t that allow you to look at the person''s stuff and change stuff as you want? Why not offer a subdomain instead of a folder? Correct me if I''m wrong about this but this is only an opinion. Disregard this this if it offends you.

no Im giving the person www.thesite.com/thepersonsfolder/their files.htm, Im not going to edit or change them, why should I?

Even a subdomain can be edited or deleted by admin and any site mirror can see the entire directory of a website.

Dont confuse the FREE HOSTING IM GIVING ON MY COMMUNITY WEBSITE with the hosting I offer to firms and individuals.

Sound like a good deal, as long as you don''t one day disappear and leave many ppl wondering where all these sites went to :D

In fact, I''d prolly sign up if you had PHP support...

How much space and how much bandwidth per month?

400mbps is useless if you only get xGB per month transfer.

I can''t see banner.gif, I get a 404. Also I agree about PHP - it''s free and more commonly used than ASP so you might as well support it.

I wouldn''t say useless; even if your site needs to be low-bandwidth, it''s better that it downloads quickly rather than slowly. But the bandwidth cap is definitely important so he should state it (though I''m guessing it''s just "anything in reason").

You get very good support.

Yes, such quality tech support.
