Theo Moore Questions... Morphology? Longevity? Incept dates?

A comrade at work recently turned me onto ASP Spider which is a free hosting service for ASP.Net. They support MS Access, .Net 2.0, SQLExpress, MySQL, and tons of other other features. Now bear in mind, this is an educational site, and not going to be your next ecommerce provider. It is provided free of charge to developers who need an environment to practice and develop ASP.Net solutions without having to pay money for them. There are currently approx. 5600 members on the site. I've been looking for a good, inexpensive service, and have found some good ones. However, mine is more of an academic interest, and ASP Spider is the better option. All they ask for in return is some ads, and that you help support others that use the service. That's it. Be sure to read the FAQ, though. Since it is a free site, they have to be careful about what and how much they offer. But overall, this is a fantastic deal.


 

Edit:
The webmaster at ASP Spider has corrected me on a few items in my post. Hopefully, he'll forgive my errors:

1. We do not support MySql (Unless you can make it work by copying some DLLs to your BIN folder !). But we support SQL Server Express, ASP.NET 3.0, MS Access and lot of cool stuff.

2. We have 55899 members as of today (not 5600 as mentioned by you)

3. We use some inline-text Ads in members sites. It was introduced this month on experimental basis. We have made the decision to discontinue Ads on members pages. We will offer all our services for free with no Ads on member pages.

Thanks for the clarification!
