Free site provider

Chrishoggy referred me to awardspace.com some time ago (thanx again Chris) but their databases have been down for some months and there is no lead time as to when they will be back up. I can't afford to pay for a service (at the moment) so am looking for a decent provider as I am looking to update my site but most decent gallery scripts need MySql database. Can anyone help please?

Hi Ziaphra.

What is the problem at AwardSpace?

I just checked my account and it’s OK. So I clicked your link

http://ziaphra.awardspace.com/

It’s all there and seems to be working

Their Database update was in November. Is there still something wrong?

Ken.

Re: Free site provider

My current site doesn't use the database as I use jalbum and now I want my site to look more professional so I want to update to a script that does need a database and db1 is still down with no lead time whatsoever and I am not getting any responses to my thread in the forums except for the fact that they keep pointing me to the thread that states that they are down. They even went so far as to delete 2 of my threads asking what was going on and also modified my last thread asking them to stop deleting my threads. But that's another rant altogether!

Sorry...what a ramble!

G'day Ziaphra, I stumbled on this hoster a few months back: http://www.prophp.org/ I don't know much about them, but looks okay at least at first impressions... Is this what you are after?

Re: Free site provider

Avoid heart internet, they spam you for ever once you activate an account. I tried them about 3 years ago, and still get spam to this day. You also only get 100MB bandwidth, and that is nothing in real terms. Plus you also need a domain to transfer to their hosting. I came away from awardspace, because of their database issues. I put it down to being a new host at first, but it seems to have become worse, not better. Shame really, as they had a good thing going that shot up the hosting ranks when they started. If I do come across a stable host with databases, I will let you know. If you have a few £ to spend, I can recommend UKhost4U for paid hosting. They have a cracking deal for only £3.99 (£4.69 pcm inc VAT) , and I've never had an issue that hasn't been fixed within an hour. My sites and DB's have only gone down once in all the time I have been with them. That was due to a hardware fail, and my site was restored and moved to the new hardware within the hour.

Their user forum is also VERY good for new users/newbies to web hosting

Thanx again Chris...you are a wonder. I will have a look at the link you've given and it is unfortunate about awardspace as I was very happy with them.
