  1. I use Chrome OS on a CR-48 Google supplied me. I also use Android 4.04, and Windows XP at work.
  2. Community wise, this place is mostly inactive and mostly non Westerners. There seem to be a lot of people that use it to host spam or "Nigerian prince" style stuff. Very low grade member base.The upside is they have live chat (via IRC), and they are very responsive. Feature wise, it isn't bad, but could be a lot better. It has the "basics": PHP/SQL, a fair amount of space and bandwidth, etc. The biggest problem is the fact they removed their propitiatory File Manager. They don't have cPanel, and instead use a watered down interface they created themselves. It gets the job done, I suppose. Their FTP connection is also pretty terrible most of the time--forget about attempting to install Wordpress. They do not have a site backup feature, and instead tell you to use FTP (which is very slow). Uptime wise, it is very, very good. Probably one of the best, and I have been with them for a couple years now. I left because I was unhappy with the shady feeling member base, and the atrocious English of it's members. I mean, if you are foreign, host your website on a host from your country. Community: 2/10 Features: 5/10 Uptime: 9/10 Overall 6/10
  3. Thank you for taking the time to answer those questions. I look forward to Friday. I hope your service doesn't give you too many headaches.
  4. Redditor here. I have completed the sign up steps up to Step 3. Waiting for Friday to come around to start on Step 4. Now, I have a couple of questions regarding the "caliber" of the members that use this service, as well as the quality of the service itself. I am unhappy with my current free host, as the community seems to: Be inactive, and; Be filled mostly with non English speakers, and/or "shady characters". That is, people using their hosting for nefarious, ulterior, or malicious purposes (e.g. Nigerian "princes")--those types. My questions are as follows: How quick are the admins to determine a "problem" account? HOW do you determine an account is a "problem" account? Do you have some sort of scripting, or guidelines, or "common things to look for" in place? How many "problem" account sign ups do you have to go through on a monthly basis? What is the approximate ratio of "problem" accounts to legitimate accounts? Is English forced on the forums? How active are the forums? Is there a core group of active forum users, other than the Admins and Moderators? How popular is your service? How much of your traffic and sign ups come from Reddit? Estimate if not known. How many users are from "non-Western" countries? How many users have poor English? Please estimate. I ask these questions because most of the problem users on the hosting I am coming from appear to foreign ("non-Western"). Their English is poor, and they don't really seem to be able to follow the rules. The more "problem accounts" there are, the worse the overall service is for legitimate users. I don't intend to come off as elitist or xenophobic. I am just basing my questions off the pattern I have noticed in the last few years through various free hosts.
