glad to see you guys taking advantage of this.. it's a sweet deal indeed.
I've posted about 1&1 on a few places and so far everyone is happy about it.
there was a few folks that were doubtful about it.. thinking that there had to be a catch.. can't blame them, really.. there are way too many scams and hidden things on the net.. for once though, we get a good host and won't have to pay anything for it.. well.. for 3 years.. and after that.. move on.. or pay 5 bucks..

but it does make you wonder why/how 1&1 is doing this.. and if somehow all this will just dissapear on you.. well to put you at ease here is a bit more info about 1&1..
Click here to read about it


Earlier this month 1&1 Internet extended its operations into the US opening a datacenter in St. Louis, and launching its services with a shared hosting plan that is free for the first three years.
As often, opinions in the hosting forums are all over the place on the impact of 1&1’s offer, ranging from” the end of the American hosting industry as we’ve known it” to “they’ll close within a year”.

It was surprising how many people in the US hosting industry simply hadn’t heard of 1&1. In terms of hostnames found by the Web Server Survey, 1&1 is the largest hoster in the world by a margin, and hosts fully 18% of the hostnames in Europe, making it plain why they felt the need to expand into the US.

Financially, the offer is not as reckless as it first appears: it is a time limited promotion until January 2004, restricted to US and Canadian residents, and counters 1&1’s lack of brand awareness in the US. In this respect, it may turn out to be “cheaper than advertising” although they will need to do that as well.

One of the more pertinent observations is that 1&1 may extend the size of the market, as it has done in Germany, rather than decimate the incumbent American suppliers.

Our Hosting Provider Switching Analysis shows that the great majority of sites appearing on 1&1's network over the last month are new sites rather than sites previously hosted with competitors.

I got in on this deal too.

I'm gonna use it for file storage, and info.
(No, not MP3's or software. Mostly databases.)

I may setup some kind of site with pages, havent made up my mind yet,.

Tu.. you're not gonna find a place for storing mp3's I don't think..
not unless maybe you rename them to something.zip..
also, let's not discuss storing mp3's, I'd rather not have my topic locked.

here is a page I found while researching for the hotlinking hosts thread I made.. although I don't think you find what you need there.

http://www.0php.com/free_PHP_webhosting.php

and this page which is only in google's cache.. a bit outdated but you might find something good in there.. please let us know if you do.

So the topic does not lock, let me clarify that. I need a place to upload my works - tracks dumped into mp3 form. I will not (and don't want to get sued because of) uploading rips or pirated crap. Now back to our regularly scheduled thread.
