Zymic Is Great For Free Web Hosting
I recently decided that I wanted to try to start a Blog as well as write here on Hub Pages but I wasn't about to pay anybody for web hosting. In the past I've used Angelfire for my small site needs but thought it was time for a change, I did a lot of searching until I finally stumbled upon Zymic. Honestly Zymic was by far the best free hosting site that I came across while doing my searches. Zymic offers 6000MB of disk space, 50GB of bandwith, 5 PHP / MYSQL databases, FTP file management, and the two that really hooked me in, NO ADS and FREE DOMIAN NAME. Now the free domain is awarded to you once you meet their standards but the sub domain names you can choose from aren't so bad, one of the sites I'm going to be working on is http://www.bslions.vndv.com . Having No Ads is also a huge advantage because I can just simply ad my own Google adsense ads, no reason the hosting site should get paid for something that I can get paid for. I've started making 4 different websites on Zymic under my user name, I actually don't think they limit how many sites you can have and since they are all under one user name you can transition from each sites file manager easily. You do have to be fairly good with HTML because Zymic doesn't provide a "basic or easy" html editor, when you go to create a new web page all you get is a blank white box which does have a spell check. However Zymic does try to make it easy for the HTML challenged with their support forums, free tutorials, as well as free website templates. I actually used their free templates for two of my sites because I loved how they looked and they were very easy to install. Another thing I like about Zymic is that they are very vigilante in policing their web sites for scammers and spammers which is always a positive. There are even a few videos on youtube that can help you with your site and give you some infor on zymic.
Hopefully this hub has helped a few people decide to take advatage of Zymic's services for their free web hosting needs. If you couldn't guess the address is http://www.zymic.com/ . If anybody knows of a comparable free web hosting service or one that you think is even better feel free to leave a comment.
