i know, theres a million search engines for little free webhosters and such, but every single one i try, they reject me. I've tried lycos.de but they put one helluvan ugly frame on your website. Could someone, PLEASE, give me a link to a webhost which has mysql and php support? my websites down because i had to make room for my gaming server upgrade. I've spent a long long time on the php layout and a long time on my phpbb forum, which requires mysql. i don't care about popups and such, just no ugly frame like tripod. I'm asking you guys because i know you all know alot about this stuff. thanks. I'm really desperate here, everyone's emailing me why my webservers down. i'm losing alot people fast. please!

i hope they just didn't end up like all the other free ones like php50, where they had to shut half of it down because it couldn't support itself. btw are they any others besides staghosting?

Remember you get what you pay for. So if its free then well, don't expect much

I just found this http://www.3x.ro/en/ but it seems a bit hard to believe...unlimited traffic ?! 100megs of storage - too good to be true

i don't want to pay anymore for my servers and such because i've reached my unoffical budget, which is all taken up by my high speed internet used to host my gaming server. I hosted apache with it for a while then it started to get popular with 10+ people symoltaniously (sp?) using my webserver therefore lagging my gaming server. Now, with me enlarging the gaming server even more, i had to shut down apache. Now I'm looking for a new host. I was looking at tripod.de, but the sonsabiatches put a huge frame in the middle of my site, ruining my layout. Mysql and php are 100% neccisary for my website because i've got game stats coming from my server straight into the webserver and going out. without php and mysql my site is worthless. can you guys see my dilema?

My friend (and I) get free hosting on two dedicated T1 lines through connections + friends. Our hoster also resells domain names for a year for $10. Perhaps I could link you up with some... we already rehost a few sites on the server since we have so much bandwidth. But we're really picky: you better have a lot of content. PM me if interested and I'll take a look at your site. Unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth (almost), databases, full scripting, and awesome support via us.

This applies to anyone btw. :)

actually the banner aint that bad. it's normal sized and looks professional, like it would on every other site on the net. Plus, it's in a different language! people will think i'm cool! :cool:

why don't you just host it yourself. If you have a dsl or higher up connection download abyss and host it. it a nice webserver and it'll support whatever you put on it.

Why don't you read the 3rd post on this page for an answer to your question?

hey xterria, i'd be willing to subdomain you on my site, i've got a gig of space, 30 gig daily transfer, mysql/php support....

PM me if you want me to set you up with an account. It would be something like xterria.TheJeffFiles.com or whatever you decided

Okay. this is the 3rd time them damn romanian's mysql database fell through.
why don't you have a look at my once beautiful forum?

gaa. The bottom line is that if i host my own server, i need some bandwidth restrictions. i'm using apache. would mod_bandwidth work for apache 2.0x? somebody help, i'm tearing out my hair here.
