Signed up for this about a week ago. Have been testing a new database driven site wuth loads of products and for a free host its been amazing tbh (its may better than any hosting your isp would ever give you).

You get php enabled with several useful features turned on (like the fOpen() and mail() functions), cpanel access, phpmyadmin and there are no adverts on your pages at all. You'll rarely find this on free hosts. uploaded a larger file to theior servers for a test and downloaded at my full line speed (850 KB/s).

No complaints here.

Why would you want a free host? In the webhosting industry you get what you pay for, and free webhosts and those fighting on price alone rarely stay for long in the industry because there is not enough income to sustain them.

Better to pay something reasonable for a reliable service, than rush into something because it's "free", only to find you have probablems with the site.

@EmmaS: Totally agree with you, buit these have a lot more features than most paid webhosts. I have been usign them On my personal site for a few months now and have been rock solid.

Had to use theor support too yesterday and got a reply within the hour - that's better than my paid hosting :)
