I'm not really sure if this is the appropriate forum or not, but I'm not really seeing anywhere else to post this question...
I'm in the process of building my new website and I'm looking for a decent free
place to put it. In the past I've used Freeservers.com, but over the years the pop-up's and banners have really taken over my websites unless I pay for their premium service. I don't really mind a banner or two on a free site, but Freeservers is getting a little ridiculous. At some point -if- I can get my photo stuff making some money, I wouldn't mind paying for the premium service, but for right now my wife and I sort of have an unspoken agreement...anything I buy for
the photography has to come from money earned from
Also if I can get something without a totally horrible domain, that would be a plus...that's always been one of the nice things about Freeservers is that all they add to your domain is something like "8k.com". For example my currant site there is
. (It hasn't been updated in over 2 years...you've been warned)
Not too hard for folks to remember (or for me to write on the back of a business card) unlike some of the sites I used to work with like Anglefire and Geocities and such that add this whole string of crap before you get to your domain name...
(i.e. www.anglefire.com/public/bitemybutt/667 ... kphoto.com
Let's face it, I'll never remember it long enough to write it on a business card let alone expect others to find it! LOL! BTW...if you clicked on that...sorry...
With that said, if it's free and it has minimal banners and such, I'd still be interested as I can always link to it from a Freeservers front page.
Beyond "free" and having a decent domain name, if they have a reasonable HTML editor, that would be nice as well as I'm sure I'm going to have to tweak links and references and such once the pages are uploaded. I don't need templates or anything, just a basic editor.
Anyways, I still have at least a few days of work to do on this sucker...it's been a while since I've done any HTML programming, so I'm still tryin to knock the cobwebs out of the ol' brain box anyways. Also be forewarned that once I get this sucker hosted somewhere, I'm going to be looking for some guinea pi....err....beta testers. All and all I'm hoping to have my first "roll out" (as my wife puts it) done before next Monday.
Alrighty, as always I'm grateful for any assistance, suggestions or input!
