free hosting emaIL address'es

i am new to getting hosting and email accounts but need to start getting them for my up and coming clients,

i currently pay for hosting everytime,

if i get free hosting - can the email address suit the domain name i have bought or with free hosting do you always have the host providers name in the email address?

i.e if i get free hostin with say lycos tripod then in my email address for this hosting the email address will be something like jamie@tripod.lycos.co.uk

if i had bought the domain name www.goldring.com then i would obviouslt want the email address to be jamie@goldring.com

is there any way round this problem or is this just what u get with free hosting,

most likely just what you get with free hosting. it is hard to be too picky about it, especially when you are going through something like lycos. they are often worth more trouble than they are worth. I know that stinks to hear it, but it is the truth.

Often times though you can get email hosting for much cheaper than standard hosting, usually through your domain provider. of course you would not be able to use this domain to host a site if you did that though.

I use a place called http://www.hostingbay.com.au they seem to be very cheap. I mean seeing you are from the UK they should be even cheaper than you. I have a friend that is about to start up a company that offers hosting for 1/2 the cost of hosting bay. But it isn't going to come for a few more months. But it will be cheap and good when it starts

well you can still get free hosting, just purchase a domain, there very cheap ranging from $4/year to $20/year.

then with the domain you can forward it to the free hosting and, most domain providers give free email forwarding, so you can have whatever@yourdomain.com forward to your other email account

www.illusionfxnet.com is really good, if there is a referrer box put Mr.Happy cuz I wanna feel like i did something good for them as they have been the best servers I've ever had experience with. Also their free hosting has certain requirements you must meet but its provides php, mysql, cpanel, etc. and would also allow for name@domain.com

I just happen to have a server up and running, I am not asking for money
it has alot of everything you need, in return I just what people to use
the cPanel I am making, it is not complete yet, but you get 24/7 FTP
access, unlimited space, unlimited MySql databases, unlimited email accounts
at yourdomain.com, the email accounts are web/POP3 accounts with IMAP,

The server offers CGI, PERL, PHP, CURL, OpenSSL, GD2, GD alot is installed
if you want the full details check out this info at www.altra32.com/info

This is not an AD, I just want to help those who have no hosting and
want to play with PHP ect and be able to use Mysql databases
and give me feed back on the cpanel I am making for it.

if interested email me at zcoder@altra32.com
put in the subject ABOUT HOSTING
and I will email you back when I create you a host and
I will also give you the NS's to point your domain to.
if you do not have a domain name you can get something that
works for free at: www.no-ip.com

If you really need free hosting just take my offer I have lots of room
very large drive. I make nothing from this so please do not say this
is SPAM, I am just offering helpfull alterative means to help those
who do not have hosting.


Zcoder....
