    Anyone know of a free host that supports PHP? I don't really mind banners (even popups I could live with), but I would like PHP support.

    I just bought 1 year hosting for $9.99 us on ebay....lol
    (http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...2625&ed=1056162120&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOT:US:3)

    It is pretty quick right now but if they get a ton of people it might be shit.... :dunno:

    If that happens I will just get a cheap ($10/mo) host...

    http://www.brewhaha.org (waiting for my domain to start working but it will someday)

    http://www.cciwebhosting.com/~brew/
    ^---works while the domain is in limbo. Gallery doesn't work right because it relies on brewhaha.org resolving

    Just got phpNuke running on it now (yeah..i know lame) but I am just gonna use it to post image gallerys and some news between friends.....:dunno:

    need to get some time and make my own style for it cause the grey with yellow banner is a little :eek3:

    I just got email from distanthost.com... It's better than coolfreepages, so I think I'll move there. Definetely recommended for all :bigthumb:

    Edit: Changed url above, it's penguinman.distanthost.com

    a) That's not free.
    b) I get essentially the same features on my free hosting.

    Same features assuming that they allow it. You also have to click on banners to maintain your service, which isn't bad, but for 6 bucks a month surpasshosting.com is doing a good job for me. 6 bucks isn't asking for much either...I get support, I get good features, and I doubt distanthost is anywhere near the flexibility that paying for a real host offers. Same features but way more stipulations...really, there's also cheaper plans...4 bucks? Not sure but for a couple bucks a month, it sure as hell beats any free service.

    I don't care how good they are, I asked for free hosts. I don't mind clicking a few banners in return for awesome hosting. And they allow me all the features I need. If I wanted to spend money I would buy a server (which I plan to do when I get back from holidays anyway).

    Just trying to help you out, why not bash eof for suggesting hosts with a price on it?

    Seemed to me he was less suggesting and more showing his site off. Anyway, if it makes you feel better:
