I should also mention that I have at my disposal many Linux boxes and an idle 1.5Mbps SDSL connection. What does your peak throughput look like?

Almost everything on the site uses GZip so actual individual transfers are much smaller than one would think. The bandwidth usage is mostly due to the fact that we serve about 20 million pages a month not to mention all the images etc.

Indeed there are a number of revenue generating options that we are considering and likely to adopt in the future. However, we really need to aquire a new server in the next 4 weeks. Ideally, if someone could host us for the next 12 - 18 months for free, it would give me time to get revenue generating features operational so we could then move to paid hosting if the need be with the means in place to support the costs. Otherwise I'm sure that a beg-a-thon is not far away.

Again, our database is 1GB.

None of the commercial free places will be much use to us for 3 reasons.

1. We need a domain not a www.blahblahblah.com/users/diyaudio style address
2. Our database is really big.
3. We get huge amounts of traffic.

When I say we are looking for free hosting, I mean we need one of the members here to donate us some space on a box they have.

Sorry, I thought you said you need 100MB storage, and you transfer 1GB per month from the database. also the second site i said doesn't support mysql, only php

If I may suggest just one more site,

www.radish.net

$50 a year
1GB storage
40GB/Month
unlimited mysql
it looks like it supports php ( i think thats what the x means)
1 domain

i don't think $50 / year is too bad. Is it?
