What Webhost do you recommend?
  • I got banned from 000webhost for not uploading anything for almost a week.
  • 0fees.net was given a bad review by WOT.
  • comphost.info was just horrible, I can name 50 reasons.

Now I can't find any other good web server.

Could somebody recommend me a good webserver that...

  1. Allows me to have at least 100mb of storage
  2. Email accounts would be wonderful but if the server doesn't have it I wouldn't mind.
  3. No ADS, banners, or pop-ups.
  4. Domain name with gluxon in it.
  5. ftp accounts.

I have no idea what bandwidth means so would sombody please clear that up?

Post as many sites as you want,
Thanks.

A web server would be Apache or XAMPP

technically, Apache is the webserver component of XAMPP, which is a server package. thats why it also has Filezilla Server, Mercury Mail Server and MySQL Wink

I said nothing about platform specifics, but now that you mention it, although apache is a webserver by itself in linux, there is also windows builds available for use. Doesn't XAMPP use a build with SSL?

Well...

First, I think your site was deleted, but the account wasn't on 000webhost, because it is their code of conduct.

So try to log in with your old username (aka: your email) and pass, and on the top, right below the navbar, make a new site with your favorite domain.

Then, upload files or something, because they don't like storage only sites, or empty sites. You can also use the website maker or the fantastico autoinstaller to make your site.

Second,

PLEASEDON'TMAKEYOURSITEWITHDEPRECATEDCODEANDTABLESANDAMARKEETAGBECAUSEITISBADCODEANDITISUGLYANDIFYOUWANTICANGIVEYOULINKSTOTUTORIALSONHOWTOMAKECLEANHTML4ANDCSS!!!

Now seriously: please, give up of the table design. Give up of deprecated tags. Start using clean HTML4.01 or XHTML1.1 with clean CSS2. If you need I have some links to HTML4 and CSS tuts. I also know sites of webdesgin (not lots, 1 or 2 Blum ).

Can you do that please? Biggrin

Okay,

Alright I will, but I never knew there was a CSS2.

And I would love to have the links.

As for creating a new site on 000webhost, I can't, whenever i do it it says, "Your account is not active".

And it says I have to review the TOS.

I think...

Ok... been checking their FAQ and I have a few links and a word about this situation:

Their Terms of Service say that you can't have a site online that is not fully functional and more stuff. You didn't upload a functional site. So they terminated your account. You can't have that account back. But you can make a new account. Actually, you can make how many accounts you want. So just make a new account that it will all solve.

(if you can't make the account, try with another email. It seems they don't like to have the same email registered twice).

Also, Comphost now is pointed out as a malware site by Firefox. So you should leave it NOW!!! Biggrin

EDIT: Don' forget to Disable the Analytics Code when you make your site. The analytics code is a new code that they added after your html that is really buggy, slows down the website, and generates a multitude of php errors, actually, it screwed up my last Drupal install. At least it is easy to disable.

Also: check this link on how to keep your website active.

Blue is everything.

Thanks.

But I if only I could make a new account.

I just created one and I didn't get the verification email.
I couldn't find a way to resend it too.

And now... I'm out of emails Blum

Ouch!

Ouch, that is hard... the only thing I can remember is to make a new email Biggrin.

Anyway, send me an email trough here because I made a functional prototype for your site and I want to send it. If you email me trough there there will be no need to post our emails in public.

As I have my site install in another language, here is the fields translation:

Name
Address
Subject
Message

You'll only get 100mb and you'll need a text ad for them, but SimplexityNetworks might fit the bill.

About Bandwidth

From Wikipedia

"In website hosting, the term "bandwidth" is often used to describe the amount of data transferred to or from the website or server within a prescribed period of time. Another more specific phrase used for this meaning of bandwidth is monthly data transfer.

Web hosting companies often quote a monthly bandwidth limit for a website, for example 500 gigabytes per month. If the total amount of data downloaded from the website in a particular month reaches this limit, the hosting company may shut off further public access to the site.

When a website grows in popularity or exceeds its bandwidth limits, webmasters may reduce bandwidth usage by employing bandwidth optimization techniques."

self.path = path if self.path == None else self.path

@gluxon

dude, sereously, you need to fix that website. huge color crash, no images, no content, i have to admit even one of the worst of my sites looks better. (the one that used a butload of flash). if you want me and PTMB can help Biggrin

also i recommend Orgfree.com if you dont mind ads or a little trouble installing drupal, and 000webhost.com for less bandwith. orgfree has 10 Terabytes worth of monthly, 2 Gb daily, 000webhost has no daily and 100 Gigabytes of monthly bandwith.

No!

Don't come up with Orgfree. You can choose between an ad on top of your page ruining the layout, or a popup, that is even more annoying. Also, their features are a lot limited, so you can't set up cron, you can't use custom domains (at least no without a redirection, what is lame) and a lot more. You can't also use clean urls there.

Plus, they add some code on the bottom of the page, breaking a clean markup. And if you place pure html files, they will screw them up and ruin them (that is why sergentsiler passed from pure html files to a drupal based system).

If you want help with your site, just say that me and sergentsiler will help you.

BTW: 000webhost.com users: there is a new analytics code added to the bottom of your pages, but on their forums, they show a link to disable it. You just need to go to here and provide your site address, your password, and choose "Disable Analythics Code" on the dropdown menu to disable it. It will fix a lot of errors on Drupal and other stuff..

exactly...

i have orgfree simply because i am lazy and dont want to switch and for the huge bandwith. otherwise it does kinda suck. also, no eyeOS support, their php.ini is locked on safe mode so it wont allow installs

Is this what you're looking for? I ran into it sometime back and bookmarked it "just in case." It's free and supports open source. IDK anything about it tho, use at your own discretion.

:(

Okay I think it's might be time to reborn this...

I still need a webhost. 000webhost probably ip blocked me so they won't send email confirmations Sad

The tuxfamily one was wonderful only...

We provide hosting services for a community. No specific program will be installed for a user or a project. A modification is for a whole project.

I'm not a community Sad

I really liked 1freewebs only, they closed Sad

Please, last time I only got criticizing about my site and my webhost and webserver error.
This time, stick with the webhost recommendations please...

Thanks.
