Free Hosting Sites


Why do sites offer free hosting? How do these entities afford their resources. My guess they are hacker traps that steal your password, (hoping you use it elsewhere) e-mail addresses and gather as much personal info you're willing to share with other forum members. Even if that isn't what is happening, what resources are provided to host a serious forum? ProBoards (BaCon home) uses advertising but doesn't really care if the advertisers are malware as long as they get paid.

Your thoughts?
