It causes a bigger processor load on the server (it has to run the programs).

Plus it can be more easily exploited by hackers than html, and will therefore need more and better admins.

Solution: Buy hosting, or...(fun but tiring and hard sometimes): Grab Apache and host your website yourself. Very fun. Write CGI programs in C/C++. Or even QBasic (as I''m doing).
(although getting mysql up is a nightmare).

I wouldn''t write CGI in C - it''s a joke. Really. Stick to something like Python or Perl. I do Python myself. You could even use PHP or ASP (with VB).

Why is writing it in C a joke (assuming you are capable of doing so given the circumstances). I have written some quite speedy and powerfull internet applications at work that would cause major problems written in Perl or another interpreted language.
