I thought all you folks who are developing different modules and things for MOODLE would apprreciate this information.
1and1.com is offering free webspace with database until January 21st. I am lead to believe that they are entering the US market and are trying to get people to experience their services. They are located at, http://www.1and1.com
- 500MB total webspace / 100MB (maximum) for Database (Only one database allowed)
- Offers up to 50 POP and SMTP e-mail (50MB each - I think)
- Offers webmail (I think 1 but I may have misread)
- Can reach website via FTP, Browser (FTP) and SSH
- Have to install phpMyAdmin yourself (not too much of a problem).
- Control Panel can be a pain to navigate but once you get the hang of it not toooo bad. No CPanel type interface.
- Can install as many websites as you want to, just have to keep in mind there is only one database allowed with the free promotion.
- Servers load the pages very quickly.
- Can run Pearl, PHP, HTML, SHTML, SSI, Crons
I installed MOODLE v1.2 after I learned how to install phpMyAdmin. Site loads quickly. Not perfect features but for "free" it works well and offers a lot of webspace.
Hope this helps some folks who are looking for a large amount of webspace with database to test MOODLE that is free and not slow.
