|this site is one of the best free-pages. The ad over the page is now replaced with google adwords, so it does not disturb my webpage template layout. Php, mysql, cgi support is top. I installed free web shopping cart, forum, guestbook, and they are working very well.|

|Quoted from FAQ of this host:|
"Q: My site was very popular. But it was removed...
A: Page impressions are counted by banner show. If you hide banner, impressions are not counted."
I hope this satiates any questions about the implications of removing their banner.

|I rate this host to be an 8.|
Pro: Easy to set up (READ THE INFORMATION ON THE SITE!!!), absolutely free.
Con: Not very fast, banner on top of the page.
If you do not want the BIG banner on the site, simply have a http://www.dot.tk domainname redirect to your PHP site.
This gets rid of the BIG banner and puts in a SMALL banner instead. ( Tell dot.tk to NOT USE BANNERS!)

|This site is very good. Easy and quick subscription. Good response times. Reliable. Simple but effective administration control panel. Web based ftp uploading. Statistics. The lot. Negative= Russian words in CP interface?|

|this site rocks! the only downside is the ad, but you can pay for it to be cleared off, and if your website gets over 5000 exposures a month, you get to upgrade where you get even more! and they allow PHP and they give you a guestbook/phBB2 forum. again, thank you for whoever created this web site.|

|This is a great host. All their features are great, and the 10GB bandwith limit is through the roof. I use Internet Explorer to access FTP, and if it doesn't work for some of you, you have to refresh once to access it, or else it displays a 404. The one bad thing about Siteburg is that the pages don't get updated automatically. What I mean is that I have a counter, and it doesn't display the new count unless you refresh the page or clear your cache. If I change the page and upload it, then go to my site, it will display the old page unless refreshed or uncached. This is a huge inconvenience because I plan to install a forum, and users will have to refresh every time they want to see new posts. About the Advertisement: remove the beginning BODY tag and it won't show. If you go to my site http://wtfsoftware.siteburg.com you will see how I implemented the Ad into my page. You will also see how the counter doesn't update unless you refresh. So, in conclusion, Siteburg is a good host with one drawback that might be fixed by a cache-disabling script. 9/10.|

|I signed up for this web host and lo, everything seems to be working fine. With the cgi scripts and everything. But when i started running mySql, i got an error which i can never fixed even after goolgling around alot, many people in some forums have the same problems but no answers (the main problem being the location of the mysql.socks ) i ws unable to use some unix commands to search for the location because of the limited shell account access given.|

|This site deserves a 1. I have to wait 2 and a half hours to be "accepted", Then I can't even connect to my sites FTP. And when I go to set up PHPBB I get a 404 Error. maybe I am just using the wrong ftp settings. But honestly this site looked so great. And then I got this terrible service!|

|This is absolutely great without the AD, which doesn't hurt since you can take it off very easily.|

|I am loving this web host! I've had them for only a day now and I must say I'm impressed, FTP is working great with good speeds throughout the day. Many scripts are supported and I got phpBB installed easily! To the user who gave SiteBurg a 4, SiteBurg doesn't use cPanel, they use a website-based control panel. You have to choose to enable the MySQL database. Login information is sent via email (so enter a REAL email) for both FTP and MySQL settings (a NEW email is sent EVERYTIME you change the password for either). The only bad thing is the ad up top.|
