I cannot believe this. It is the best free web host server I have tried, and I have been trying free web site hosts since 1999!

Perhaps the best selling point of Awardspace in its free hosting service is "free of nagged ads". A must-have service for anyone looking for free websites hosting.

Great website hosting free. No ads, lots of web space. Perfect, except for the fact that your maximum file size is 500kb.

Pros:
The free hosting server is up most of the time and is relatively fast. support is adequate, as you are expected to use FAQs to resolve issues yourself. The control panel to manage your freehosting account is easy to use.

Cons:
no custom DNS allowed for free domain hosting accounts [I have never seen a free web hosting site that supported it].
this is a pretty good host only if you don't need to use a stmp server to send e-mails. if you are looking for a free host site that will allow you to use another email provider's service combined with its own free hosting service, it won't happen on awardspace. see godaddy's instruction that instructs you to have your web hosting company change the MX record (which is totally different than using the web hosting company's server). awardspace won't do it for freehosted accounts. that way they can hopefully get you to pay money to upgrade.

your other option is to go to one of the free web site hosting services that allows custom MX record in their free service, like www.freehostia.com. I think companies that do not allow this or will not change the mx record upon request is holding the domain you own hostage for their own profit. preventing fraud is not a good answer to why since the webhosting company can control the process by doing the change themselves upon proper request, as opposed to allowing customers to do it themselves (thus they can control spam changes from spammers using yahoo or hotmail).

I totally agree with lily's post sunday june 18, 2006 in their forum titled "DOMAIN HOSTING - Help and Support" regarding her situation with godaddy and awardspace. since in changing the mx record the customer would be using godaddy's servers and not awardspace's, there is no extra taxing of awardspace's servers. additionally, godaddy (or other email service providers) can easily trace and deal with any email fraud that results for the use of their servers. so the issue of preventing fraud is a red herring since godaddy specifically instructs the customer to have the MX record changed with the domain host. bottom line, it is a for profit money thing, not a customer service protection issue.

So if you are looking for a truly full-service free website hosting that won't charge money to provide custom MX records on domain hosting, in an attempt to get you to upgrade to another webhosting plan, look elswhere [there are only 3 or 4 freehosts currently listed here that support custom MX records]. If you do not need to use full service e-mail with your hosted domain name, their free web hosting service is adequate.

PS: if you use your free speech rights under the constitution of the united states to post an honest opinion comment like this in their forum, look to be banned there.

I have been looking for a high-quality free web site host for almost a year now, and I have finally found it. This free hosting server is AWESOME. It has virtually all the scripting support I need, plus lots of web space and bandwidth. It also has NO ads on your web site. Everyone looking for a good free web hoster should consider Awardspace.

It is great for a free web server hosting site - fast and so much php functions, Perl functions, and upgrades are wonderful.

The best free web page host out there. They got me up and running, and I began making money from my web site, and now just recently purchased a paid host from them. EXCELLENT FREE WEB HOSTING COMPANY!

Very good free hosting service - bannerless, free php hosting, and they host both subdomains and domain names at no cost.

I have been using it over a month with no timeouts/downtime yet. The free webpages have no forced adds. It has POP3, but no SMTP. You can host your own registered domain name free, or their subdomains. Performance wise, it is just as good as my previous budget web hosting. Price wise, it is even better.
