My mate has a server and I'm looking at using it to host sites. At the moment each person would get 500mb of memory, freedom to do what they want on there site (this excludes [bleep] im not getting into that), they would have to arrange there own name i personally recommend .tk thats what im getting. The only thing that you would have to do is have apple or amazon AND google adverts on it. So for example apple and google or amazon and google (Any counters offers to the advert section are welcome) Anybody interested or do I have to rethink my terms?

Who's going to admin the server? Why not just sell shares at cost instead of ads?

My mate will admin shares as he as experince as he has other servers up and running. Comments like bennydog's are helpful and very much welcome. My latest idea is something like 500mb 1 advert, 1gb 2 adverts or something like this but again ideas and people saying there interested are welcome. If you want to know specs of servers ask and ill try and get what you want off my friend.

Shares properly wouldn't sell because this is the first time we will have done this so people properly wouldn't be interested in buying shares.

Last question would you prefer a little bit of forced adverts or to pay something like £2 a month?

I would normally lock a thread like this as spam, but it doesn't appear you are doing this for profit. I will keep a close eye on this thread. We won't permit promotion of other hosting sites or packages for profit or personal gain.

Feel free to lock this if it does go against the code of the site. No this isn't done for profit just for the reason that i'm tried of no one offering above 50mb for free so I thought I would.

he doesn't seem to be breaking any rules, in fact, in my opinion he's offering an exceptionally good service for free.

i can't wait :tazz:

By the way before anybody says anything the adverts are only there to cover the server and the cost of running it.

Internet storage would be fine but we would like to keep the number of people doing it to a min. But I'm sure we could allow you espically if for example you did a little website as well recommending what you use to help others.
