 [20070215]  to close the pop-up ad windows you have to click on the word "close window" and not the "x" in its upper
 right hand corner.
 [20061219] - i don't know if fortunecity purchased fcpages.  It seems fortunecity ads always popup.
 [20061216]  zip files OK; no java
 [200611??] recently they have added an "elite media group" install box that activates when you view the hosted page.  if you don't click "install" the page won't be viewable.  It feels like spyware/spamware.  (i didn't click on it).  i have experienced some down time with this site. affiliated with 0catch.com

fortunecity.com - i was impressed with them even though it was difficult to get support for basic queries.  zip OK.  FTP OK.  Recently they killed my site without warning.  I still don't know why.  I wasn't spamming.  My files were legit. (2006?)

hostfree4life.com (hf4l.com) - they lack info on features and how-to's but they do offer lots of support through their forum and email.  zips are not allowed.  FTP available.  i have experienced downtime. (2006). java not allowed; Otherwise known as hf4l.com, this service has cancelled my site.   The reason is unknown; I tried to apply for a new account but never received an activation email.  There is no contact information posted. It's a shame because it did work pretty well.  I guess they WON'T "host free for life". (20070215)
