200MB Disk Space are enough for personal website of a beginner, the advantage is this web hosting able to Host Own domain, you can choose sub-domain if you don’t have a domain. Only 1 MySQL database should enough for a beginner. Since it is free, that sure have some disadvantage, i have hosted those open sources CMS such as Joomla and osCommerce, it can support and run normally, only can’t send out notification mail to the person who sign up as member. According to some Webmaster from WMM forum, the Mail () function on the hosting are close or disable, it is to prevent people send out spam mail.

This hosting is suitable for those students or beginner to learn how to host a website with own domain, this hosting is my 1st experience to learn how to host my own domain. So, sign up 1 account for testing 🙂
