Portland website

Does anyone know what has happened to Portland's free web hosts? I had my website with Portland but I cannot access it now and there has been no email from them to explain this problem.

Without income, such endeavors can implode. There are dozens I've seen 'wink out of existence' over the past decade.

I'm sure it was the same reason.

But I don't keep track of them. For some, geocities.com is OK. Others can be picky. If you are picky, start your search again.

I went with Infoquest over 6 years ago. At least the price has slowly gone down or I would have bailed.

Before picking any host, you should know that there are millions of webhosts out there, but not every host is legit nor recommended. Some free hosts have a ton of ads, some free hosts have many restrictions, and some will only stay above water for a certain time before you lose everything you've created.

What it comes down to is this: What website am I creating? Each website (language, dynamic, scripts/programs, graphics, bandwidth) has certain requiremens of a host. So, instead of designing a website based on your host (in this case free), you should always choose a host based on your needs.

Let us know if you need help choosing.
