    I'm sure this may be a long shot question, but does anyone know of an Internet Service Provider Host for domains that is:

    1.) Free
    2.) Reliable
    3.) Offers good bandwidth
    4.) About 50MB disk space per domain
    5.) Allows FTP uploading
    6.) Has a good reputation and track record
    7.) Has site back up in case of hacks or site vandalism.
    8.) Has PHP
    9.) Has MySQL?
    10.) No banners or word ads on the site.

    I think I'm asking a lot. However, with the internet, you never know. If someone does know of a domain host that doesn't charge for the transfer of a doman nor for hosting and fulfills the above requirements, would you please let me know and provide a link? Thanks!

    your computer

    yeah, you are asking a lot! why not just use your computer and high-speed connection? as long as you aren't using it for full-on business purposes, i think that should work out great.
    there are places out there that are as close to cheap as possible, though. the one i use is $10/month. that's really pretty cheap when you think about it.

    If you can't afford that, I'd host from your house.
