Why are we using Bravenet?

Bravenet is a free hosting service that provides users with an FTP accessible web hosting account. You can create folders, move files around and upload easily.

But I hate the ads.

Bravenet is free. The price that we pay is allowing ads on our site so we have to live with it. The company hopes that you will upgrade to a paid, ad-free account. If you wish to pay for hosting there are better providers. Ask me.
