Hi all,

I’m looking for a free webhosts with the following features. It’s very important that I find one because I’m trying to create a product that has to do with staring your dream business &/or generating a cash flow online with no (or minimal for bootstrapping people who can barely pay rent) initial investment.

I personally use paid hosting, but want to provide people with a way to get started that costs them nothing (except maybe the cost of a domain name).
So… Th only road block to the method being free is hosting limitations.

The Freehosting service should have the following features:

1. No PHP block on communicating with outside servers (eg. not being able to use the built in WordPress update and plugin search technology).
2. Good SMTP allowance for sending a few hundred emails per month minimum.
3. File size limits well above 2MB, preferably above 10MB.

May be optional but highly recommended:
4. the ability to have your own php.ini
5. and .htaccess file usage.

And finally 6. NO ADs. This is why I’m not sending them to wordpress.com.

Can you help me find a freehost that offers at least the first 3?

It doesn’t matter if they require free accounts to use a subdomain of the host (eg. yourdomain.x10.mx), in fact that’s a benefit for my people.
