Where can I get a server that's free & has all these features :
10MB of Webspace & above (Unlimited if you can find)
CGI & SSI plus PHP(if) support
LINUX OR UNIX Server ONLY
Small ads or no ads
If you can find a good webhost, thanks for your help.

Gotta help the n00bs.
Although Freedom to Surf have great features and no ad banners, they are SLOW! And for some reason they have cache clearing problems meaning that when you change your site it takes a day or so to change. It's a pain in the --- if you want to check your links etc. when you are building... as yet I haven't found a good free host (except Simpletown.com which closed down)
To (partially) solve that caching problem, press CTRL+F5 to see the updated files.
Hmmm, I'm gonna try that out... other than the speed F2S is a pretty good host...
f2s isn´t professional, you must wait for the next day because their serverconfigration, that means the configure all the users manually!
I´m the master of ANIME!!!
Automated everything doesn't necessarily mean professional.
Nope, they cache everything. All my php pages were always cached. No exception.Originally posted by ozefrog
i find that .php files are not cached on f2s, so renaming your html files to .php extension may help the cache prob.
i find that very freaky, when i first got my account and it was running on html and cgi, it had the worlds worst cache problem, taking days and days to recache, now since i change over to php, its been running like a dream (well b4 i switched over to badpenguin.net)
if you sign up with f2s about a year ago,your f2s account will loads very fast with no downtime at all...my site is hosted on f2s server 033 and the speed is very fast.... If you signed up with f2s now,i think your site will be on server 046 and that server is very slow,with lots of errors and downtime.
Well, a year from now server 46 will be fast and stable, but then again, everyone will be getting put on like server 59 a year from now.
well it was brought to my attention yesterday coolfreepages.com i dunno much about them but I hear they arent the greatest
I'm back after 2 years and 3 months.
