A small bit of web hosting


I had 15Mb of webspace I made use of with my old ISP, I recently switched ISPs and the new one has told me "We offer webspace through geocites." :S
All I need is 10Mb of space and a ssh login, a FTP login, who would be willing to offer such a small amount of space (for a decent price)? I asked my ISP to let me keep my current space, they told me I could for $10 a month, funny, I paid $13 for internet access. :S

You should just get a free account with www.freeshell.org

Well, you have to send a dollar in to authenticate and prove your not going to use it to spam but you also get pop email, 20 megs of space, 20 megs for email, telnet access and such. I think a little bit more you can get ssh and ftp, etc.

I've never heard of an ISP that offers webspace thru Geocities, that's just lame and laziness to me. Anyone can get a crap geocities account..

Email me and I might have something else in mind for you though..

www.gotoecom.com

Just register your domain with them and you get decent web hosting at the same time, for free.

Thanks for the response. correction: My old ISP said they would let me keep my current space for $10 a month. My new ISP lied when I first inquired about a account and said I get web space through geocities, turns out when I call them to get info, I do get web space through geocities! ...one of their free accounts.
