    i want to provide free web hosting

    Hi,

    im thinking about upgrading my current shared hosting plan and making part of it a free hosting site. anyone know what program i can use that will do such a thing automatically?
    yes i know there are alot of other "free" hosts out there but they have too much restrictions, and i just want to give other ppl more options for free.

    thanks,
    JC

    has 30 bajillion scripts... you're bound to find one that lets you set up free hosting... some scripts are free; some are very expensive.
    If the bigger hosts are fancy French restaurants, consider my service the friendly small-town diner.
    HostMidwest.com- you deserve honest, helpful, and reliable service!

    Yes I use CA now, very easy to sign up and offer free hosting, a few drawbacks, but nothing major. I use the free-co-branded solution, otherwise its in the area on $50 a month. You basicly will signup, fill out the contract and fax it in signed , they will take it from there, you change your nameservers because they manage the dns so that subdomain sites are branded to your domain name ex: yourdomain.onlinedomain.org, also allows them to use there own domain free when signing up. Puts a banner of your choice on all free sites that are registered and also gives you 50% of there banner rotation. All members areas are branded with your colors and logo, allows mail lists to send out to memebers etc.. another draw back is the main reason there offering the free hosting is to get the free client to signup with there hosting so may lose potential customer that wants to start with free hosting and then dosent realize it that if upgrading it upgrades them to CA hosting not your own unless they come to your site upograding thru there member area will set them up with CA. But http://freeservers.com is another example of a company that uses CA as is http://00server.com.
    So if you wanted to build a major site offering free hosting with many subdomains you could do that to. Hope that helps
