Free hosting

  • Hi.

    I know this isn’t directly related to support, But I am hoping that someone knows a free web host that would allow me to host a Word Press blog?

    I’ve had a quick look around with no luck. I’m just looking for something for the time being, I don’t really want to buy web space only to find I hardly use it anyway.

    Thank you in advance. 🙂

  • What about http://wordpress.com? You have to sign up for an invite right now but it shouldn’t take too long for you to get an invite.

    Actually I do know a free hosting company. They’re called iHostFree and you can find them at ihostfree.com. I’ve been using them for the past year and they’re great. They ahve wonderful customer service, speedy responses and know alot about wordpress. I encourage you to check them out…

    The only free hosts with php/mysql I know of is http://www.freehostia.com/ http://www.hostmatrix.org and http://www.frihost.com though there are likely others a search on Google would turn up.

    An inexpensive paid host offering PHP/MySQL is http://www.spaceports.com at $20/year USD. A decent inexpensive host is http://www.linhosting.com. The basic plan is only $35/year USD. A visit to the offers forum on http://www.webhostingtalk.com or http://www.hosthideout.com might turn up other options as well.

    I have been trying Linhosting for some budget hosting for about 7 months. I had a bit of problems when I tried installing WordPress as it was a problem with a PHP MySQL client needing updating. I contacted support and within a day they had not only solved the problem but upgraded PHP, MySQL and Zend for me.

    [Note: I have no affiliation with any of the companies in question]

    Contact me if you’re interested. I can host it for you.

    If it’s art related, let me know. Right now, I am putting together slipabuck.com. It’s designed for indie artists to post their art and earn tips.

    It doesn’t sound like it’s quite what you had in mind, but if anyone here is an artist (short films/cartoons, photos, drawings, prose, philosophical musings, whatever), let me know and we can get you set up. =)
