Web Hosting ??

Do we get any free space on the web with a BT Vision package ?

 

I have a website ready to go but need someone to host it.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

 

Thanks

Paul

 

PS sorry if I've posted in the wrong place - in which case can you just point me in the right place to post.

Yes. It's here somewhere; search this forum for "web hosting".

Thanks for that Brokk.

 

I have been searching for 'web hosting' and it brings back millions of pages and it is hard to tell which are relevant and indeed which opinions are true !! Some say it is free, some say not, some say there is a workaround etc etc

 

Can anyone give me a link to a page that describes the process ?

You only seem to get free web hosting if you had joined up with BT pre BTYahoo days.

You could look at this:

(provided by forum member Andy_N)

 

Personally, I've found the BT webspace very basic. It depends what you want to do, anything involving server-side scripts etc. is not available. It might be useful to look elsewhere for free web hosting. There is a list here:

http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-web-hosts.php

 

Note: the above list is by no means complete. It's also worth just using a search engine to find "free web hosts".

 

It would be worth reading reviews and user opinions before deciding upon any free service, though personally I've found some are quite good.

 

Regards,

Peter

Re: Web Hosting ??

I joined after BTYahoo and I have web space (with Option 1).  A helpful thread was here:

http://community.bt.com/t5/BB-in-Home/Free-web-hosting/m-p/21341

 

From that thread: "host name for BT FTP is ftp.btinternet.com and the username is the first part of your btinternet email address."

All accounts have it but it is very restricted many free hosts offer far more

Re: Web Hosting ??

You might have trouble actually trying to access the web space today. All the pages are still there, but the FTP server is rejecting any attempts to connect to upload new content.

This really is a legacy service, and not a high priority.
