I'm having bad luck with all the free webhosts I find and I don't have a CC. Just a small bit of paypal so I'm probably out of luck but I thought I'd ask. I found this website and it offers a free domain name as well as webhosting. Is it too good to be true?

No I haven't set anything up yet, but I'm getting ready to start. I've actually run them before on a free host so I'm somewhat familiar with them. Still deciding on a portal though.

It's difficult to choose a CMS portal because there are dozens of choices out there.

OpenSourceCMS.com has screen shots and demo's so you can test drive before you install.

Yeah I've been checking it out and reading all the reviews. Got the forums installed so that's one thing down. At least until I get into setting them all up.

The better question is what haven't I done. I played around with phpBB2 then installed Postnuke and found a way to do a forum through there and ended up freeing up a database. Then I installed Mambo just to see what it was like. I'm like a kid with a new toy. :yelclap:

Thanks for the welcome MrsHoneybee :) and twista I agree. Ross is DEFINITELY the man!
