    Default Web Host???

    Hi guys
    I need a host for a website that is just over 1 MB in size, the website is hardly ever updated but needs to exist simply so the company has a web presence.

    The host can have one ad or popup (prefer not to !!) but must be free.

    It must also serve PHP for me though!

    Suggestions, anyone??

    Seems to me 14.95 a month is about the best your going to get with the requirements.

    Try www.siteserver.net. I have used them for several years with good uptime stats...

    netfirms.com allows a free 1MB site

    No pop-ups, just a banner add across the top.

    Here is an example of a free site:

    260z.netfirms.com (you even get a decent domain name)

    Lachlan, try http://www.brinkster.com/

    They are the best free host you will find. No pop up adds but not sure about PHP.

    The best way to find one is to go through a Host Search site like

    http://www.hostsearch.com/

    or

    http://www.tophosts.com/

    or

    http://www.hostreview.com/

    There are plenty of host search sites so I'm sure you can find waht you are looking for.

    I have signed up with Brinkster and a couple of others now, will see if any of them work.

    Biggest problem is the lack of FTP with any of these places!! Frankly if it was my site I would just pay for proper hosting. No one seems to do a good job of free stuff anymore...

    Try- helpinghost.com - Not free but real cheap, reliable and they have ftp and php. I use them for alot of smaller customer sites.
