    They have cpanel+ fantastico.. but their free hosting is not really reliable, Their server must get a lot of abuse.

    Code:
    x10hosting.com

    Yes.. they cram a lot of users onto the free servers so sometimes you can't access your site. Maybe too many users using cron jobs..

    For testing, they were okay. It just got kind of annoying when you're working on something then the site goes down. You kinda lose your train of thought.

    But overall it was okay cause it's FREE!!

    They have quite a few free servers.. of the two that I have been on they were pretty much the same..kinda slow.. and it seems that they have added 2 extra domains since the last time I used their service.. which was a while ago.

    The only thing is.. you need to log into their forum I think once every two weeks or so to keep your account active. You don't need to post you just have to sign in to the forum once every two weeks or they will cancel your account.

    I understand that free is always a local favorite around here, but if you aren't willing to pay a couple bucks for an entire month of hosting and would rather sacrifice reliability, you're never going to make it anyway - you aren't nearly serious enough to start making a living online. Sorry but that's the damn truth. Believe me, I've been there. I learned very quickly it wasn't the way to go.

    Buy some hosting. ;)

    I agree completely! Investing your time in a free host is very counter productive, especially if you plan on generating an income from your site..

    Sometimes if you check SD or FW, they are often the first to post when a paid host has a free year of hosting. Just check them once a day and you will find a decent paid host for nothing.

    Hmmm, yeah I agree with you guys!! Free webhosters ESPECIALLY x10host... omg, do you really have to visit the forum and cpanel every 2 weeks? thats a PITA....

    if i were to invest in a host, what do you guys suggest???
    it HAS to have a WORKING [cuz many webhosts have non-working] Fantastico..
    thanks! [its actually pretty cheap for webhosting huh?]
