Re: Looking for an easy website for your team?

thank you so much for doing this .. i am so grateful to you for it and i have just sent in the application ...

however i do have a question .. lets say now i send in the application but later on down the road ( whether it is next march or sometime in 2007 ) we buy our own domain name, do we have to close down this site or are we allowed to keep it running ?? also are there any limits to what can be on the site size wise ??

As for a domain name, if you buy your own domain name, all you will need to do is contact myself with the name, and i'll tell you how to set it up to work. If you also decided to get seperate hosting for your team, you could get all the files and the SQL data so you could transfer the site to your own host.

Lastly, there are no real restrictions in terms of a file size limit. However, I ask that you do not use the site for mear large file storage. If I notice that some site has what appears to be an extra large ammount of files, it will be looked into. Overall, you should be ok

Hope that helps
