Jordi,

You're going to have a very hard time finding a (free) web host that offers 2 gig of data space with unlimited bandwidth. The reason for that is that web hosting is a business like any other business. Disk space costs money. And whereas some ISP's may offer 25-50 mb free storage with an account, there's no incentive to giving away 2gb of data.

Secondly, Bandwidth is a precious commodity in the web hosting business, which is why most hosts charge a premium each month to give you any more than x amount of gb's of data transferred. So it doesn’t make much business sense for them to just give away that bandwidth.

So in conclusion, you're going to have a hard time finding a free web host with you requirements due primarily to the fact that it's opposite of their business model in every way.

Web hosts which did this would quickly go out of business unless they were making serious money from advertising. And I'm not sure you'd want all your web pages to have banner ads automatically inserted for you.

With that being said, you can get a web host with all the features you're looking for, for about $7.00 a month - less than the price of going out to see a movie.

You might want to check out the Web Development Forum as there are a couple of threads listed with some very nice offers going on. There's also a list of free services listed in the FAQ. What are you looking for exactly? I have quite a bit of space on my server. I'm sure I can afford giving you 25MB storage and a GB bandwidth for free until you find something better (I have PHP installed). PM me if you're interested.

Heya Rob,

Long time no see. After I started working in the industry and got stuck working 14 hour days with a 1 hour drive each way to work. So I didnt sign on much for a year or so.

Now I'm working at a much better company, its just taken me a while to get back in the habit of posting. So hopefully you'll see more posts coming from me and I'll try and follow your threads as well.

Cheers, mate!
-Jeromy
