do you have an animation you need hosted yet?

you can have short animations [1 min or less] on many many hosts [even if you have to put it into a zip archive]

and something people seem to neglect to mention is that a dsl line can host a website, it just has a lot more limited up bandwith than a bigger host does. That said, most free web hosts will shutdown your site if there is too much demand for it in a limited time [so, instead of going real slow, people would get an error page. geocities is notorius for this [among other things] but they are by no means the only ones that do it]

so you are saying my dsl can host?? :-?

depends on what dsl you have + what abo (speed, traffic). bassically… even a 56k modem can host… :slight_smile:

there are several links in those posts to superb free hosters. I won’t tell you any (though I know some)… :stuck_out_tongue:

i use qwest dsl 256k :frowning: can that host my animations and pics

You should be able to host with that. if you don’t hav a static ip check out www.no-ip.com. The rest you may have to figure out if you need a web server check out www.apache.org good luck :smiley: hope to see some cool animations soon!

not sure what a static ip is

As farr as i understand how quest works your ip address will change every couple of weeks or days unless you have paid extra for a static ip address. so unless you have a static ip address it is pretty much impossible to host a web server. hat is where no-ip.com comes in they help bypass this problem for you. Hope that helps.

thanks finally some one that doesnt tell me to search somewhere and actually helps one more thing
what does the apache place have that i need and do i need to write an html to host im rather new to this whole hosting thing :-?

Yes you wll need to learn HTML also on the apache web site you will want to look at the httpd server link. There is a lot of stuff for you to learn if you are going to host this on your own machine. While I am no expert on any of these thing I am more than willing to help you out in pointing some directions for you i did briefly look at doing this also from a cable modem. (But being a college student i am to transient to make it really work how i would like it to). Its all depends on what you want to do. if you want to do just a quick and dirty website you can use some program like word or open office to make the html for you. (depending on what OS you are running.) If you are running Windows XP here is a link to a good tutorial to get things up and running on windows with apache php and mysql a good combination if you plan on doing this.(my oppinion only). http://internetmaster.com/installtutorial/ I suggest going this route because you should be able to find a image gallery package that is open source so you don’t have to worry about writing to much html and be able to set up a personal gallery. But it again it all depends on what you want and how much time you have to spend to learning all of this stuff. Good luck!
Hope this is not too much information for you all at once :o

:o :o :o :-? all i want is somwhere to post animations and images!! this html stuff intimidates me :expressionless:

Moving this to Off Topic.

Martin

he doesn’t need to learn html, all he needs is an ftp server. Apache has nothing to do with it.

i already have it setup on abyss
and i did learn html :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley:

congrats, it’s not needed but can make it easier for some people who can’t use ftp for some reason or other, and it’s a sueful skill. And remember, nothing’s ever done being learned :slight_smile:
