Does F2S give unlimited webspace in the paid hosting?
If I only purchase a .com Domain and the Website service and NOT the email service do i nevertheless get @domain.com e-mail adresses?

Thanxs

No, the space is not unlimited. You'll get the space which is on the order form (PLUS the space you have now, but that'll be on a seperate account).

If you don't pay for the email, then I don't think you'll be able to receive emails (there may be a way of pointing your domain's DNS records for email to another company, not sure).

yup you can create you own mx records if you know of someone else to provide your email.

personally I would go with cyberwings now and leave f2s if you dont mind losing your old .f2s.com subdomain.

What about the bandwidth?
Is it unlimited?

Thanks

Its not unlimited - if you used 9999999gigs they would obviously terminate you. As they seem to refuse to say what an excessiv ammount is its any guess as to when they will get unhappy with you using too much

Do they actually have any terms & conditions for paid hosting? If not, then they can't kick you off their servers if you use too much bandwidth.

Never have I seen any definition of "too much bandwidth" from any F2S statement.

I can only assume that if other sites are being slowed down excessively as a result of your popularity, would they kick you off. Especially if other account holders are complaining.

Well, if they don't have any T&C then they can't kick you off, can they?

If they don't have any T & Cs, there is nothing stopping you hosting viruses, porn, warez or anything like that. I've seen stories about web hosts being sued because a person got a virus of a website on that host.

I'm also sure that F2S wouldn't be too happy if you were hosting another Slashdot on their servers.

I think this lack of information just portrays F2S' amatuer status.
