My new site

I have been working on a freelancer fansite for a while now, but i think it's time to get it off my computer to a website hosting company.
the problem is that i don't know where to find somewhere that meets these requirements.
  • PHP support
  • MySQL server
  • Allows phpBB forums
  • FTP Access
  • Allows .htaccess and .htpasswd files to be used
  • Allows a small downloads section for my projects
  • No ads or banners (although I woudn't mind a banner with a link from the hosting company)
  • 2000mb+ of space
  • 1 E-mail account or the ability to send e-mails through my hotmail one
  • Either sub-domain of a short url or free domain
  • Allows PHP file managers/editors (unless they provide them)
  • COMPLETELY FREE

Re: My new site

With the need for it to be completely free...I doubt you're going to find anything. You do know that FileFront hosts unlimited files for free? Honostly, I got lucky and found a friend that has a server so I only had to pay the domain name for a year and we set up the rest. Um...there's something I want to talk to you about, but not publicly, is there any chance you can IM me on one of my many IM's?

Not gonna slack you down or anything.
But getting this for free is allmost not possible.
And 100mb+ ? you have any idea what it means to host mods? If mod dev's are gonna upload the mods to you site you need some space to get them hosted, there are mods out there from 500mb+ and a free webhoster won't like it that your gonna eat that up for bandwidth, and other community sites won't realy like pointing to downloads from a different sites.

We at Starport use around 60Gb now on the webserver and eat up around (including mod downloads) 200gb a month on bandwidth.

We choose for a dedicated server for that site because space + bandwidth was needed, and also at a reaseneble speed.

Have now edited first post...
EDIT: Okay, fine what about just a free domain name with forwarding to a certain ip:port

Free domain name isn't going to happen either. Trust me, I tried. A domain isn't that much though ~$10 a year.

Re: My new site

The cheapest you can get with those features would be like $5 a month. so a $60 a year.

There are enough hosters around.

A freedomain name is normaly included with the hosting costs, so just look around for that.
