Finding a host

I thought that a tutorial on finding a good host is needed, so I wrote one. ^_^

There's many free hosts out there, but which one is best? I myself have been hosted at many free hosts in the past (not for this site, my other site). I've been hosted at,,, and many others that don't even exist anymore. I really wouldn't suggest using any of these hosts, as they now require banner ads on your pages instead of popups (this really messes up some layouts!).

Of any of the free hosts around, I'd suggest the following:

Now, free hosts are great and all (not really), but a good free host is when your hosted by a private host. Now, these are the hardest to come by, and you have to do a bit of work before you can be hosted.

Most hosts prefer that you already have an existing site that they can look at, and that you know what you're doing. If you want to get hosted by somebody, make sure to have had a site for a while, have good design skills, know ftp, don't type lIkE tHiS, use correct grammar, update frequently, know html, and don't have a bunch of 'under contruction' pages.

Actually finding sites that are hosting is even harder, and then there's the trouble of getting accepted. Don't think just because you have qualified for everything means you'll get hosted. The best site to find sites that are looking for hostee's is This site is basically a directory of hosts that have hosting open. This is your best bet for finding a host.

Now, paid hosting is even harder to find trustworthy hosts. I'll tell you one thing that you should remember, if it sound's too good to be true, it probably is. I'm not going to go into detail and give you a list of good hosts, but I do suggest visting and browsing the threads to check out hosts before giving them your money.

Well, I hope this little article will help you with your hosting needs.
