first you need a host:

free (puts ads on your site) : 250free.com

Pay (no ads, plus yoursite.com instead of you.someonessite.com):

HostMySite.com (windows platform [asp enabled])
Netfirms.com (Linux platform [php enabled)

I reccomend netfirms, and, I might as well say, because someone will, that geekstogo has hosting too.

Let me know if you have any questions. Once you get a host there is a lot more to do, like actually putting the files on the web :tazz:

thats "File Size Limit"

And that means that is the highest amount of mb each file you upload can be.


P.S. I do not reccomend 250free if you are planning on paying. They rip you off, but for free there great with the mb they give you.

This one gives you more bandwidth but, one of the many that give you 50mb or less storage:

Most of them are going to be like bravenet. You can always search for more (there are tooooons out there) if your not satisfied with what those ones give you.
