    I've been planning for some time to put up some pictures of my home entertainment system, and now that I've taken them (thanks to a nice digital camera I got as a Christmas present), I was wondering what web sites would be good for hosting.

    Any suggestions for free hosting sites? If not free, any good ones for ~$5-8 a month?

    I use Image Magician. It's only for images and you get 1 meg free.

    Thanks for the rec, Travis.....

    I was looking along the lines of a more full-featured site.

    I'd like to put some text up with the pictures, possibly add some extra stuff (DVD reviews and a GTA:VC guide are the 2 things I'm looking at to start).

    Try www.geocities.com

    You get 15mb of free space. It's ad supported, but it's not too invasive. You can use your own editor or their version. A bit slow if you use your own software, but it will work.

    Does your ISP provide you with free space for a personal home page? Many do. I get 5MB space free from Road Runner.

    This may be what you're looking for:

    ArisHost



    It's only $30 per YEAR and it includes your own domain name (they register it for you), 30MB of web space, 5 email accounts (ending in your domain name), FTP accounts, and 500MB/Month bandwidth. If that fits your needs, then give them a try. I use them for my personal site and it's more than enough for me.

    They've been moving to a new data center so things have been a little funky, but that will pass soon.

    Looks like I'm a little late but maybe someone else will find this usefull. I use http://www.nexpoint.net 500MB of space (no that's not a typo), unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email accounts, free domain registration, other various goodies that the techie types would like, cgi/Perl, server side includes, etc. If pay for a year up front its $8.25 a month. There costumer service isn't the best I've seen but they have always addressed my issues, I just wish they were faster about it, but I can be impatient [​IMG].

    They have cheaper one with 50MB of space and less goodies for $4.25 a month.

    I'm really happy with them and for the amount of webspace you get its a great deal.

    You can check out my site if you want at www.moesrealm.com
