Website Hosting
 
@everyone,

Happy New Year !!!!! :mnkypile:

I'm looking for a good website host for some advertisments I want to
display. I don't require much space and I'd like to keep the cost low.
I don't want ads attached to the site to use their space. And of course
reliability to remain available is also important. All ideas, suggestions,
recomendations, etc. will be greatfully appreciated. :)

Thanks

-BP

Hi BP,

Quick question: Does your provider give you free web space with your account :?:
If so, I have good news for you :D
You only need to register a domain name. I use registerfree.com
After that, you register an account (for free!) at www.zoneedit.com
Then it's as easy as "cloaking" your registered domain name and point it to your provider ;)
For example, say your personal web space at your ISP is http://www.comcast.net.com/~bp
Then, you only need to add an entry at zoneedit like: www.blackprince.com -> http://www.comcast.net.com/~bp
Then when someone tried to access www.blackprince.com, it gets redirected to http://www.comcast.net.com/~bp but the user sees www.blackprince.com :D
It's as easy as that.
If you want to go really cheap (actually 100% free!), and you don't need a domain name, then just register at www.dyndns.org and get add a DNS entry that you can point from zoneedit. Like http://blackprince.dyndns.org
Then redirect that name at zoneedit.com, and everyone will reach you there, actually at your provider's personal web space :cool:

Great info Kwag :wink: I do have web space at verizon, but was trying
not to use that domain name verizon as a business address.
Your solution is perfect. Verizon informed me that I have 10 MB and
that's plenty for my webpage. :D
