      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex. MP3s and ROMs] (including, but not limited to, copyrights and trademarks) Abusive, threatening, defamatory, racist, or obscene Viruses or any other harmful computer software False Information or libel Spam, chain letters, or Pyramid schemes Gambling or Illicit drugs Terrorism Hacking or cheating for internet/online games Warez, Roms, CD-Keys, Cracks, Passwords, or Serial Numbers Pornography, nudity, or sexual material of any kind Excessive profanity Invasive of privacy or impersonation of any person/entity Hacking materials or information Posting Tips   There are more BBcodes than there are buttons for on the reply menu. To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

LOL they might as well just say unlimited, who is going to use 75GB of space, 1.1 TB of bandwidth, and 1000 databases for only 25 domains?

I would prefer reading this then unlimited actually. Otherwise you might eventually reach higher values and get banned for nothing (well... nothing written anyway).

Alot of companies promise these crazy amounts knowing you will never reach them...I even heard from someone who was cut off even though they were within the advertised limits because the host promised something they could not provide.

Most hosts that oversell there servers end up in trouble becouse they can't handle the traffic no more that's why you should never host with people that offer these absurd ammounts of webspace and/ore bandwith unless they can guarantee you that they do not oversell their servers.....something they most likely never will.Ruud Hermans

I wonder why this has not made it up here yet but here it is anyways:Name: Award SpacePrice: Free (Also have pay services)Server Side Scripting(s)/database(s): PHP/Perl/CGI-BIN/SSI/MySQLSpace: 200MBBandwidth: 5GB /MonthlyAds: NoWeb Address: sub-domainAdditional Comments: They're a really good service with lots to offer and they've been pretty reliable at staying online for the most part (for being a free service and in Beta version). I have yet to try out their tech support. I like that a user can have up to 5 sub-domains for one account, makes managing sub-domains a lot easier. The only con I have is that it only allows 1 FTP connection at a time and it does get annoying, but with all their services at my fingertips I can't really complain that much. I highly suggest this service for anyone looking for a good and reliable host with the cost of nothing.Edit: More comments - I found out they have a filtering system that filters out certain words that would otherwise be considered as a spam site. The worse part about is that they redirect you to a different page without telling you that one of your pages has a filtered word on it. I've recently made a page listing these filtered words: http://oneuse.awardspace.com/word_filter.html

Once upon a time, among my first posts, I listed a whole bunch of free PHP hosts that I copied from another place. Now that there's a pinned topic for this and I reminded myself about that post, here are the hosts:Name: 1 ASP HostPrice: Free; $8.95/month; $14.95/month; $19.95/month;Server side scripting(s)/database(s): ASP; PHP; ASP and/or PHP;/No; 25MB;50MB;100MB MySQL spaceSpace: 100MB; 100MB; 200MB; 400MB;Bandwidth: 3GB/Month; 3GB/Month; 6GB/Month; 10GB/Month;Ads: Perhaps on the free. No info on that.Web adress: No info.; domain;Additional Comments: The site has ads on itself. Pop-ups to be exact. That doesn't speak very well for that host. The lack of some further info is also disturbing. Name: Lycos.co.ukPrice: £1.99/month; £4.99/month; £6.99/month £9.99/month; £14.99/month (All prices are without VAT, meaning you'll actually pay some percentages over that).Server side scripting(s)/database(s): PHP/No; 1; 2; 4; 8; MySQLSpace: 1000MB; 2000MB; 4000MB; 8000MB;Bandwidth: 8GB; 10GB; 20GB; 40GB; 80GB;Ads: No.Web adress: domain;Additional Comments: Good variety of offers. I like the fact they offer either PHP4 or PHP5 on all of them.Name: illusionfxnetPrice: $2.09/month; $2.92/month; $5.00/month; $15.00/Month; $20.00/Month; $30.00/Month;Server side scripting(s)/database(s): PHP/10; 10; 20; Unlimited; Unlimited; Unlimited; MySQL databasesSpace: 550MB; 650MB; 800MB; 1,500MB; 2,000MB; 3,000MB;Bandwidth: 20GB/Month; 35GB/Month; 40GB/Month; 90GB/Month; 120GB/Month; 180GB/Month; Ads: NoWeb adress: domainAdditional Comments: Nicely layed offers. A bit short on info though. Name: MaxHostPrice: Free; 5.55 у.е.; 7.55 у.е.; 9.55 у.е.; 28.55 у.е.; (not sure what a у.е. is, but it's supposed to be around 29 russian roubles. Any russians here?)Server side scripting(s)/database(s): PHP, CGI(Perl5, Python, C, C++)/1; 5; 7; 10; 2; MySQL databasesSpace: +50MB; 500MB; 700MB; 1000MB; 1000MB;Bandwidth: UnlimitedAds: NoWeb adress: Not sure. It says 1 domain, but by that hosts usually mean 1 spot to place files; domainAdditional Comments: Very detailed information all of which sounds very good. There's only one problem which will probably force most of you out- the site is in Russian, and there's no English version. Name: T35Price: Free; $4.99/month; $14.99/month;Server side scripting(s)/database(s): PHP; PHP, CGI/No; Unlimited MySQL databasesSpace: Unlimited; 500MB; 2000MB;Bandwidth: Unlimited; 10GB/month; 35GB/monthAds: Yes; NoWeb adress: Web directoryAdditional Comments: Plain offers. I wouldn't be surprised if I have an error here. The "Unlimited" in the free offer sounds like "No limit=>No space" or in other words- as if they don't give a thing. Name: 100WebSpacePrice: Free; $0.99/month; $2.95/month; $7.95/month; $9.95/month Server side scripting(s)/database(s): PHP, CGI/1; 1; 1; 2; 3; MySQL databases taking up to 5MB; 10MB; 30MB; 50MB; 60MB spaceSpace: 100MB; 100MB; 500MB; 5000MB; 10000MB;Bandwidth: 3GB; 3GB; 10GB; 80GB; 120GB;Ads: Yes; NoWeb adress: Web directory; Web directory; Web directory; domain; domain;Additional Comments: This is probably the only host to tell the number of MySQL databases AND the space they can take. The other stuff they show is also very detailed. The lack of a domain name in the cheaper offers is probably the only bad thing here. And here's a list with some other hosts:http://www.oinko.net/freephp/

I have to take back what I said. They recently started injecting popup ads in all their hosted sites. Too bad.

Could there be a rating system implemented? Or are these all hosts that have been vouched for by members?

Name: AFMU.comPrice: Shared plans - Free/$3.95/$7.95Server side scripting(s)/database(s): Php 4.x/CGI/Perl/SQL (with phpmyadmin) and a bunch of other stuff.( Feature List ) These features are available in all of the packages, including the free one.Space: 500mb/5gb/10gbBandwidth: 5gb/250gb/500gbAds: None. (Unless you sign up for the affiliates program, which earns credits toward your bill.)Web adress: www.yourdomain.com (I believe they register the domain name for you, since you aren't redirected to another website to do this. Prices range from: 1-year-11.95 to 10-years-119.50)Additional Comments: This is the host I use. It's been great. The tech support always answers quickly and helpfully, I rarely experience downtime, and for a service which has no monthly fees (on my plan at least) it provides a ton of features. There are other packages for Businesses, as well as resellers.

They have changed it. Host Unlimited Sites Now and Databases I think. $6.45 a month now. Come November I'll be leaving them for 1and1.com.Check 1and1 out. Hosting starts at $3.99 and up.

No one offers free domains. Free hosts, yes. Free subdomains... yes. Free hosts with free subdomains. Also yes. But free domains... I think ony the "tk" domains are (see the bottom of the first post). All others are sold and for a good reason.

.co.nr ( http://www.freedomain.co.nr ) are also free, but this is because, if you look carefully, they are just subdomains of .co.nr, as the domain is .nr .
