    Check there, back when I was an active member they usually had respectable hosts posting free accounts every so often.

    Btw, you can get a really good host for really cheap. At godaddy.com you can get some for $3.95. 1and1.com has some for $2.95.

    Per month that is. You get paid $20/hr. I'm sure you can afford it :)p), because free hosts generally suck really bad.

    I'll just plug http://got-w00t.co.uk/ here, I think I am reasonably priced, but then I haven't taken a look at the current us market and compared prices.

    If you want something tailored pm me. It might even be cheaper than the list prices.

    .... and lord sleeps on..... :p

    I think he may be adjusting to the commute actually and was hoping for a 24Mb line here, not the 2Mb we had to take. Waiting for him to start on me about a DSL2 router ATM...

    To mention something back to the topic - what about your ISP? Or selecting an ISP that bundles webspace (most of the decent ones do because they are all kitted up for it and can easily cover themselves against any major bandwidth suckage in their contracts....

    For the customer cPanel might "rock", but for admins it is a pain in the behind :p. No rocking my socks.

    Haven't been using cPanel (as an end user) for some time now, don't miss it at all.

    Theres always me :D

    I acutally switched 2 of my severs to Interworx-CP and it's awesome. Even had the developers fix their server-server dns synchronisation for me too! Just need to set some time aside to migrate my last freebsd server to FC4 to get it on all 3 :)

    Checking out the IWorx demo right now, looks fun :) is it possible to have multiple domains per account though? Or would you just need to login again for different domains ?

    It's not possible yet to have more than one domain per account (dammnit) but I'm told its on the todo list.

    Edit: but you can have multiple accounts with the same username and password, so its almost like it :)
