  • Re: Requests for Free Hosting

    Hi there,

    1st: I pay for my hoster, so don't shoot me

    But: I don't understand why it is so bad to ask.

    You all use mostly Linux, which is free, MySQL, which is free ... get the point?

    It's just that the vast majority of people that ask for a free host are running illegal copies of vBulletin..... most people that pay $160 for forum software will certainly be willing to pay $20/month for a decent host.

      Hmm, okay - I see.

      That's a point
      Thanks,

          Actually, I purchased a license a couple of months ago and I do not pay a penny for my hosting. I can afford a one off payment, but I am 16 and cannot pay every month. And in case any of you think I am a pirate, feel free to e-mail to check and I will be putting in my customer number ASAP as I have just got back from holiday.

            And now I am annoyed, reading some other threads with comments such as these:

            I agree, also. I havent even seen One vBulletin on a free host yet, so what place does it have here? None.
            I appreciate the majority pay, but do not assume everyone does. Now if ANY admin would like to e-mail me I will happily confirm I am a paid licencee, and the e-mail with my username/pass has done a runner, I am trying to catch it . This is my first visit to this site in ages. My site did my head in, and I am restarting. I need a free host to setup a board and get some conversation going with my staff before we move to a better server to continue with my site.

            Now, any free hosts? Or can you e-mail my any?
            Regards

              Have you checked out the boards over a FreeWebSpace.net??
              http://www.freewebspace.net/forums/index.php

              I'm sure you can find something...

              Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of free hosts that offer php/mysql. They come and go just as day turns into night... Running a free host that offers php/mysql is costly - because everyone is looking for it - and signs up. There are a lot of them, that I've seen, that have only lasted about a month - and they're dead.

              I've seen plenty since I became a moderator over at FreeWebSpace.net (and even before that).
