    I want to start a website for my model railroad. Anyone have suggestions for decent web hosting? Free hosting would be ideal here, but I don't really want anything that's going to spam my visitors with ads.

    I use Railfan.Net http://www.railfan.net/ for both my Railroads of Madison County and the CID, NMRA division websites. It cost about $80 per year (per site). I pay for mine and the CID pays for theirs. We have been there several years, and have been very satisfied with Railfan.Net. They call them a Sponsored site. :)

    No ads.

    I use Doteasy there are no ads or banners or spam. The "free" costs $25 to register your domain. I use the "Ultra Hosting"

    Most ISP's give you space for a site. I'm not sure, but I believe mine gives me like 100 meg of disk space for my site at no extra charge. Right now I've used it only to park a few images there to link to. Check with your ISP and see what they offer.

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. :thumb:

    As for the ISP provided space...I'm on Sprint DSL. I checked out what they provide, and it's not really what I need. The service they provide is quirky, and I didn't really want to send them more money than I already am.

    I use Freewebs. For the $10 a year plan, I don't have to fly any banners, not even theirs, and I've got megs to spare.

    One other format that lends itself especially to developing railroads (so yo can read the progress... ;)) is the "blog". www.blogger.com is one common one.
