Hello,

I have just installed my phpbb forum on this host, http://www.freehostia.com. After having experienced with some other hosts, I found this very good: 250MB, 3 email accounts, ... My question is: in my forum, can users post links to download mp3, softs, cracks, .... Does anyone has the same host? The reason I'm asking this is not to begin posting those links but to begin warning users not to post them. I have visited some forums on http://www.lycos.co.uk, and they provide those links on their forums.

Anyone can give me some answers, please.

Thank you

i think the situation here is not to compare to lycos, as a standard. the moderation might be different. Since you using freehostia, so the TOC is to be follow by every forum owner. :)
