or some info about free ones too...

I know of geocities [but too many pop-ups] and if you have an account with Comcast then I think you get 10 megs space..

But any other info will be great!!

I am still okay with www.hostony.com who host echarcha and nrimilan

The issues we were having some time ago were due to a constant barrage of search on eCharcha. Search causes a lot of database hits. Since we are on a shared hosting plan the database cannot be dedicated just for us. Hence I had to put in a limit that a search can be done once every 30 seconds. This has brought the situation under control.

The ISP analysed and saw that many folks were searching by opening 4 to 5 windows and firing 4 to 5 simultaneous searches. This used to bring down the server.

Anyway, I am happy with www.hostony.com and they provide good 24/7 support via ICQ.

Doesn't your uni provide web space? Or do you want a host for a commercial or porno site? ;)

THANKS FOR all your suggestions!

charchila: my isp and my uni give me space but its less! i was more like 1GB! i m goin to post lots of pics, and other stuff, but not porno (sorry to disappoint you ;) )
i have found some places that are ok, SHAHENSHAH check these out:
webmania.co.uk - have to pay an additional 10 for extra 100MB (i asked them!)
hostuknet.co.uk- have to pay an additional 2 for 200MB
these are teh cheapest ones!
can you post your opinion of them too! as webmania is 20 flat per year! and they only give 500MB and if i want more i can always get another account instead of paying 10 for 100MB, so what do u all think?
