Calling all geeks...

I'm in the precess of making a small website for myself, not really for any reason other than the practice of doing it. Who are good companies to get webspace off? I don't want loads, but I don't want anything too restrictive either. I also don't want ad's, pop-ups etc, and I want proper webspace with ftp capabilities rather than 50megs.com style space.

I also need to by a www name thingy. How do I do that? How do I link the webspace up to the name etc? I know nothing about any of this.

Thanks

How much are you willing to pay?

The only free webserver that is half decent that can provide some of what you want (that I know of) is http://www.freewebs.com but their url is included with your's when you sign up.

If you want your own domain name and webspace you're going to have to fork out some cash.

Yeah, I don't mind spending a bit. Someone was telling me that they paid about 20-25 pounds a year for 500meg of space and lots of bandwidth (plus the domain name). This amount is fine.

Look at our friend 1and1 (counterglow's host)....very very reasonable here in the US for a personal website and domain name

LoC does a page on freewebs, but be warned - their free account will only allow you to have 50 files in your account space at any one time.

Maybe one day it will be, not at the moment though.

Check out my rubbish site here: www.mmdesigner.co.uk ooh risky. average looking US hosting company. ;)

Although that actually makes sense with the dollar being so weak at the moment. Might backfire on you next year though.
