|It provides FTP access for transferring website files, or you can use the control panel file manager. You can choose a free sub-domain from any of this list of domains:|
50g.com (very short URL)
The TOS states you can have multiple accounts, but not what they consider to be "too many" (vague) and not interlinked to get more storage space. The filesize limit has been reduced from 1.5 MB to only 650 KB -- the TOS says that individual files stored in users' free web space may not exceed 650k in size. Also the filetypes / file extensions allowed are quite limited. It is not the worst freehost, and it has been providing freehosting many years, but it is not great either, considering the limitations and excessive ads.

|I formally was hosted on eSmartStart but I moved for more reasons than one. The ads aren't too bad, if you select popup only you'll only get one popup and no other ads, and the bandwith/space is reasonable, however I did experience disppearing files and server downtime every so often. There are much better hosts.|

|One of the worst on the net. I began building an academic website on the Church and Shoah which we had had on another net, and at first all was fine. Then we started experiencing missing files, unexplained downtime, etc. Snide remarks with pwd request and for weeks, my access to my own intellectual property was denied. This server became non-respondent. I have had experience with at least 5 other servers, and have had no major complaints--I overlooked the primitive editor but after the treatment I received I would absolutely warn other users not to deal with esmart.|

|Not too bad.|
Ads eat a little bit of bandwidth but the load up is reasonably quick.
Mid range verdict.

|I was very disappointed to find out that they put a pop-up in addition to your banner ad. I only found out after I signed up and give them a whole bunch of personal information. If it wasn't for their intrusive form of advertising, I would have gone with these guys. Please stop the pop!|
