The Global Web signup page now says "free web hosting department is closed." They have closed and re-opened the free web space service several times, so maybe will be back.

Dead FTP -- you can not upload in any other way. Maybe the problem is temporary (hopefully).

GlobalWeb is the worst free hosting site I have ever used. It has no positive aspects. It has banners, and it has 99.9% downtime. It is pretty slow server, and unless you pay, you get no support. If you were thinking of choosing GlobalWeb for your free website hosting provider, think again.

Maybe this would be a great free hosting site, but when I registered for the free (bronze) account only to use ASP pages I discovered that ASP is not really supported. So this is useless for me. In their forum the adminstrator said that ASP is supported "partially" on commercial hosting packages only.

When you try the free web hosting registration link, it says "In maintenance. Please check back again within 72 hours."

I am not intending either to critisize or to praise the hosting by this web site, but I am just stuck on how to register a name for my web site. I would like to have my web site hosted here, but I can't register. Can someone help me out?

Click on "Register" link under "BASIC (BRONZE)" listing, about 3 lines down. Then enter your info, such as your subdomain name. It seems they don't offer free domain hosting anymore.

Well, everything sounds great, but the "upload" information is inaccurate, since they do not support uploading via browser.

At first sight, a good offering. However, very unreliable on the long term. Many outages, bad response times, erroneous server date-and-time. So perhaps good to learn PHP and mySQL. But not recommended for a production web site.

Good host for free. Banner is a context google one so ok by me. Server seems to be overloaded. FTP is erratic and PHP is unreliable but as long as you try to reload the page a couple of times it will work. Great for a personal home page, probably not great for business or to impress anyone.

Best free host in my opinion- only problem with it is that it seems to be subject to DoS attacks often, resulting in downtime :S

OK, so i got an account quicky. Few details asked for although some people on here couldnt get accounts! It all works apart from one problem, - the ftp - to begin with it worked fine but after about 10 - 15 mins it stopped letting me upload and froze internet explorer (my ftp client) so i waited a while logged back in and it worked. This happened several times then i had to go out. I came back and it was worse - i cant upload at all! If i try and upload then it just wont work, event with a free ftp client (smart ftp). I dont know if this is just me but its worth knowing about this problem - im going to go check their forums about this problem now! If your considering this host its a good host! Good luck!

This website has several nice features. And (when it's up) it's fairly fast. HOWEVER, it is hardly ever up. I do not recommend this host to anyone who needs a site that is up all the time. I am rather dissatisfied with this host so far.

awesome. the best web hosts around. one thing that struck me about them is their support which is best of the best. always there and the admins are ever ready to help in as much personal a way as it can be. not to mention, the services and features they offer are ONE OF THE BEST, IF NOT THE BEST.

I wouldn't say that this service is the best that I have seen, but it isn't bad like the other services that only allows a tiny bit of space. GlobalWeb doesn't give 500mb space though, only 150mb much to my disappointment, but that's not bad at all.

awesome hosts. i have been hosted there for months now and not a single downtime yet. before this i had been having nightmares with hosts who cropped up every other day promising the heaven but disappered the next day. ...till i found globalweb. with members nearing 3000 in number, this is the best web host. You don't need to click on some stupid ads, or have to produce an existing site or anything. just make 50 good posts. (i made mine in 2 days) and you are on. the service is excellent with some wonderful 24hr support. its almost as good as paid hosting. only, you don't have to pay for it. :)

So far so good! Lots of useful information on the forums and a great way of seperating the wheat from the chaff. Don't try to get free hosting quickly this way but if you have the knowledge then the end result is cracking hosting.

I don't know why would anyone criticise this free web hosting. It's getting popular and I've seen some hosted members there cheering "Long Live Global Web!" in its forum.
Also I saw on the forum an announcement that says that they are implementing an automatic registration system instead of posting a message asking for a free acount. IMHO, those guys never run out of nifty ideas that improve their service.

Well, really fantastic hosting plans for each level of forum contributers. You don't need to be a professional web developers to be able to contribute. I saw some members get hosted for contributing simple hints and tips and helping other members. It is worth a try really.

This site has a very bad policy. They ask for 50 useful tips, and that useful clause is defined by the Admin there, and it is really stupid. You have to do whatever the admin wants, and only those who are very knowledgeable can get an account there. It is not the palce to go for newbies, and also not for budding developers.

You have to post 50 messages, and most of them have to be 'really good' posts. For example, if you were to answer someone's question about HTML tags, then you will have to give a very detailed helpful answer, otherwise the message does not count.  My personal opinion is that you will need to know a lot about web development in order to contribute to the forum, and spend a lot of time answering questions.  Therefore, I think I will be better off paying for hosting.
