Well Im looking for a free host so I can customize a CMS (cause my main host is down for maintance) but as I signup to this host I noticed they want a lot of private information, they want your first/last name, city, state/prov.,postal code, birthdate and gender...seems a bit much. I will edit this post once i signup and try it out.
So yes it is instant activation! its kind of an odd setup cause once you login you have to go to another page and actually click a button to activate the hosting (it takes only 2 seconds though). One problem I have found.... can't create a MySQL account lol. Everytime I go to create a database it says it has added the database, but yet it didn't lol. Other than that I am getting pretty good upload speeds.
