    hi

    seems to be people ignoring you...
    how can you involved with website thingy but you can't find yourself a home...hehehe.

    i suggest you go to altavista...and type for yourself;
    free webspace.

    There will be alot of choices;
    if you needs to run scripts on your website you must look for free cgi hosting.

    then you'll find the best is http://www.f2s.com

    for free web hosting without cgi capabilities;
    i suggested you use geocities.com.

    ok thanks...

    maybe it will help

    best regards,

    http://www.brinkster.com is used by a lot of FK members. They offer 30mb of Windows server space where you can run asp. Downside is that w/free option, you can only upload 5 files at a time.
    Also, do an 'advanced' search in FK of Coffeee lounge posts w/keyword "hosting". There have been a few very active threads over there on this topic.

    Here's a decent place to start looking. It's a web host seasrch engine. You can filter your query to weed out sites with ads/banners, only include sites that support CGI, and specify minimum storage space. Check it out:

    found a good one

    I was also looking and actually took hanafi's advice and signed up with F2S. I was having trouble with running an ActionScript variable on a .txt file with this other host I signed up with before so I went looking for a new host to see if the problem was with the server and sure it was (I'm kind of a newbie). I find a lot of free services are shutting down and I have only found 2 hosts that allow relatively large file size uploads (2.5mb) for my .swfs . I love F2S because there are no banners :-) and I haven't hit an upload file size limit yet, and above all, my variables work...

    How on earth does a free web hosting company make money?
    Are there banner ads or something?

    Well, I've tried adding a couple of directories just to test it out and you're right... If you want your links to work you have to put everything under the same directory. It sort of sux but it doesn't look as if there's a way around it... My main problem now is the server cache, I can't test my site because the server is caching the page and no "no cache" tags work...
