Hey guys, while searching around for a new web host for Tabletop Geeks I came across a site that's offering free webhosting with NO ADS. It's got support for all the necessary stuff that comes with real paid hosting including mysql, php, and ftp access. You get 1.5GB of storage and 100GB of bandwidth a month.

I know I've seen a lot of people here complaining about free hosting being full of ads or running really crappy. This might be worth a shot.

It's here: http://www.000webhost.com/228706.html

I use google sites and it works pretty well for websites, but it wont host a site I think. I dont know of they offer the kind of services you are looking for either, but I thought I'd at least throw it out there Smile

Google sites is okay for incredibly simple things, but you have very little control over the site itself. I use Google sites mainly for hosting small files like forum avatars or screenshots of video game characters to show off to people.

A real webhost gives you full ftp access, php, databases, and a ton more. Smile

Ahaaa, I see Smile

I am not that experienced with sites and The Den of Damnation is my first site ever, and yeah, it is quite simple too.

I have several books of how to create real sites but when I get to deciphering codes and stuff I just give up Razz

Well, it's not incredibly easy, but it's far easier than it used to be. The best way to go about it for a beginner (which I'd still consider myself) is to use something like wordpress. You simply copy the wordpress files over to your server, go to your page and enter in a few details, and it's set up and ready to go. At that point you don't need to actually mess with all the messy code or anything. Of course, if you want to get into it more they give you the control you need to do a LOT of things. There are a ton of free themes out there to make your site look different as well.

Of course, it all depends on what you want to do with the site. I'm sure there are plenty of other pre-built website packages out there, but wordpress is the one I am most familiar with.

Tabletop Geeks is running on Wordpress MU (Multi-User, which allows you to create multiple "blogs", I'm using that for the new part of the site coming soon). I've done some editing to the wordpress MU code to suit my needs, as well as added a bunch of various plugins to achieve the things I want.
