Details below, you can also use your domain name if you own one already, no charge. Good for those looking for above average web space, or looking to test scripts, i.e. perl, php, python, mySQL.

  2. This sounds too good to be true, there has to be a catch.

    Since i have my own webhosting thingy ( 13 servers on a 100mbit uplink ), i know how much that stuff costs. :eek:

    No fricking way in hell does any company just hand out this stuff absolutely for free. Companies exist to make profit, not to make loss due to free webhosting packages. There is a catch.
     
  3. I know, it's stoopid!

    I just signed up with them a few days ago (I'm just using one of my 'cheesy' domains to point to their servers), and my email prog for that domain is serviced through another company.

    BUT I haven't encountered any nonsense so far. If anything funky comes up I'll post it, or remove the link.

    >>I forgot, the only setback is you have to be in the US or Canada to sign up, but if you know someone who could get a throwaway paid for cell phone number, and use a proxy, well there you go.
     
  4. *waiting for Jaco_Goatse to come back and reveal how hard he got screwed over and for Allodox to say "told you so"*
     
  5. They're completely open on their website saying that they have no hidden fees or costs or anything, so I doubt they'd be able to screw you over in anyway. the only thing they say you have to pay for is redirecting existing domains will cost $5.99 / year....

    i'm still skeptical.

    I removed your link. If people want it they can email you. TB has a strict no advertise policy. This is an ad and THIS IS A WARNING.
