after signing up give it a month or two for the server to settle down , but after that you have got the best free hosting with f2s i have had 100% uptime for the last 2 months
I've already been looking for over a month for a reliable host to create a forum on (which will probably be an Ikonboard), and so far I'm thinking about f2s and Netfirms.
What I wanted to know is if -don't flame for asking newbie question, can't help it either- it's recommended to use a database like MySQL when moderating a forum.
It's not required as far as I know, but as my site and the form might get deleted for some absurd reason at both hosts it'd probably be a good thing to have everything backed up on my comp
But that's just what I wanted to know, is it (apart from easier) safer to use a database? If it is I can drop Netfirms and go along with F2S. If only they weren't that slow
Unless you guys can recommend me another host...
If possible, no ads, if not, only banners
and CGI/MySQL of course...
yeah but f2s' database ain't big enough for a forum
phorum doesnt require a lot of tables. it's a stripped down version like that on boards.gamers.com. phrozen, are you talking about hosting vB/phpBB on f2s? then 5 mb is nowhere near sufficient.
yeah, i was talking about a phpbb on f2s. i don't have to worry about that now though because i have paid hosting.
