    Co-Branded free hosting?

    I found a few sites that offered co-branded free hosting, and thought it would be a great addition to my existing paid hosting service. Anyone know of more sites like these?

    -must be free to end-users (no sense getting a rival to my own hosting)
    -advertising inventory (meaning i can put ads on user pages as well)
    -preferably free to me as well, but this isn't really a must


    Examples i found already:

    Im also interested into what security your running.
    What software (if any) are you using to give the users access.

    0catch

    I use 0catch for one of my site- they are a good pick.. They handle all the illegal activities and abuse complaints - that is the main reason I don't host these free sites myself.

    I used community architect also but the problem I had with them is they didn't host the main site so a lof of these problems came back to me.

    Software?? Hardware configuration??
    These are all limited by the PHP script.

    Just don't allow FTP upload access......

    As for the profit wise... well... yes enough to make the ends meet....

    GalacNet,

    We are all asking what "PHP script" it is that your using. heh
    Is it one you bought or is it a custom job?

    How much was it, and is it really secure?

    EDIT: If I were to run the webhosting myself instead of using a co-branded solution, I'd have to enable PHP for users, cos most other freehosts do now.

    Enabling PHP is pretty much insane. Once your free host gets popular it is impossible to watch every single site to make sure they are not doing anything illegal. There are plenty of non PHP hosts that are as good as php hosts.

    Yes. being a free host, there will be many instances of abuse.
    It is best to allow only HTML for the coding.

    Because other than that you have a lot of other things to worry about.... ( warez, porn, mp3 etc etc )
    Anyway, are any of you interested in the script? I can get the programmer to email yo. ( please leave you email with me. )

    Anyway, you must remember that to allow a script to auto create users in your server's OS is crazy.
    This program does not do that, it just creates a user folder and when the users accesses your site, the program makes the server think that there is a user when there is not.
