    Webhosts

    I already have my domain name and a webhost, but my current webhost wont let me install anything on the server and I am trying to avoid hosting it at my house due to the limited bandwidth, and dynamic IP that my provider gives me ( I know there are ways easily around that, but my only system available is a 166 with 64megs of ram, which is enough, if I really have to)

    Basically I want to be able to install things like SVN, maybe a Vent or TS server, stuff like that. Low costs is also something that I require, since I am a student and work for minimum wage.

    If someone knows of a host like that, please let me know.

    Back to the Google...!

    Hmm... I think you are in for a little bit of trouble. The problem is that only dedicated server webhosts allow you to install other stuff into their servers. And these are more expensive. So that's basically your window of choices.

    Yeah I have been noticing that. May have to revive one of my old computers and go that route.

    I found a couple dedicated SVN sites, but they cost more than I would like for the private ones. If I go that route, I may just make a sourceforge project since it will be FOSS anyway.

    Mario is right, unless you buy a dedicated box from the host, you aren't going to get any software installed.

    though you can get them to proxy to subversion or cvs on your own box for no cost.

    it's most likely simpler to use one of the free project repository services, like sourceforge, since then sourceforge would eat the data transfer used by the project, and you don't have to fight to set the server up for internat access yourself, they have done that already.
