need free webspace that does not suck

Post by knorke »

does this exist?
It does not seem so. I just want to host a small site.
50MB or even less would be enough.
In a time where everybody can spam the tubes with their shit its still impossible to find a host that:
*offers 20+ MB
*can do ftp
*size limit for unique files > 3 MB
*allows all file types for download
*no fucking giant ass-banners or at least no pop ups. small banners or google adwords bla is tolerable
*does not delete the account if you do not post once a week in some stupid forum
*has webinterface bla where logging in and every click does not take half a minute. why can free email things do that and not webhosters?

Thats not really asking for that much, is it?

The most retarted limitation I have seen so far was:
Unsere Registrierungszeiten sind täglich zwischen 06.00 - 15.00 Uhr MEZ.
Yes, thats right. You can only open accounts during the day. Internet with opening hours. wtf wtf wtf.

so, any suggestions? :regret:

Webhostingtalk is an extremely good site for this kind of thing, and they have a sister site dedicated to free hosting. http://www.freewebhostingtalk.com/

And a quick search got a recommendation for http://www.000webhost.com/

There was another I was aware of but lost it.

I can host you (or AF can, either way), but I need more info on what the site is about. If you want to buy the domain name that's fine, jsut point it at ns1.dreamhost.com ns2.dreamhost.com and ns3.dreamhost.com (you'd need to do this for hosting on AF's stuff too), or I can set you up with a subdomain of one of my sites.

was a bit sceptical because the feature list said nothing about downloads but it seems they work. They just can not be linked to from outside but thats ok. I think I will use this.
HA HA I am using the internet!

AF, Forboding Angel thanks for both of your kind offers but for now this will do :)

when did sf get a new design :shock:
thought of that too but too professionell, i also want just to mess around like try making a php guestbook or something.

Btw does http://knorke.net23.net/ have any adverts on your pc? It does not for me and some friends in the same house. But another guy says he has a "you've won this car" banner at top.
Is it possible they check the ip so for the account owner it appears advert free and everyone else gets adverts?

Have you SEEN some of the Sourceforge project pages? These are sites designed by programmers, you don't have to worry about your site looking like shit.

i would suggest buying a domain and non-free web space, ive noticed through 10 years that free webspace always ended up sucking hard.
