Better when you aren't using it

AdvantagesLots of extras

DisadvantagesVery hard to use extras

"Tripod used to be one of the leaders along with geocities in free webpages and e-mail accounts to go along with them, however, through a series of stupid mergers the company is trying to be too much like it's counterpart, Lycos, which is defective in itself. I have nothing personally against Tripod really, I have no vendettas or axes to grind, I just know a lot about them through a lot of web experience using their free webpages and web management ..."

I think Ive outgrown Tripod

AdvantagesFREE and easy to use with expansive space on offer

DisadvantagesThe "Unbearable Pop-ups"

"Tripod is the easiest web hosting site to use, the largest and one of the fastest (Considering these services are classsed as "read slow"). But its pop-up windows containing advertisements are making me look for another web hosting company. I signed up to the site about one month ago, and as a first time user, I found Tripod an excellent site due to its partner FTP software called Trelix Web. I actually found that you could host a site on Tripod ..." Read review

Free web hosting...but God, the ads!

AdvantagesFree web hosting, free scripts and site building tools

DisadvantagesThe ads plaster your web page, they're everywhere!

"Tripod was once a independent web hosting site but was recently taken over by Lycos. When I first started out designing web pages and needed web space, tripod was one of the sites I used for web space. Free web space is always good. It is a great way to get your web site online with the minimal amount of knowledge of what it takes to create, upload and maintain a web site. The design and navigation of this web site is great and everything is ..." Read review

Bit slow but free

Advantagesfree

Disadvantagesbit slow at times

"I was lloking for a way of setting up my own web page and Tripod seemed a cheap (Free in fact) way of doing this. I have checked out a number of different options but none are that impressive. Tripod offer free web space and a number of tools to help you build your web site. You can access the site by ftp and upload or download files to your site. It has been a bit slow lately but they apparently moved to new servers last night so hopefully it ..." Read review

Free, Easy and Professional

AdvantagesFree, very easy to use, "pods" of like minded sites to generate publicity

Disadvantagespop-up window

"Having used Tripod.com for my first website because of the large amount of webspace available and the ease with which their software enabled me to create pages, I leapt at the chance to have a UK site when the UK branch opened. You get 100mb to use on your site and I defy anyone to use that much without resorting to major downloads or video clips. If you're looking to earn money from your site or simply generate publicity then Tripod offer "Pods" ..." Read review

Tripod is free

AdvantagesFree

DisadvantagesBanner ads on pages

"http://www.tripod.co.uk/index.html I have put three sites up on Tripod and have found them OK. Apart for the banner ads that pop-up on each page, that is unless your register and pay for a domain name. I haven't used the Homepage Builder as it is very basic and does not allow you to create a very pleasing site. I would think that a newcomer to web page authoring may have a little trouble using their builder. I would suggest learning something ..." Read review

you cannot remove banners

Advantagesfree 50 megabytes of space, easy to use, easy upload

Disadvantagesmandatory banners either as window or flashing

"jamphil claims to be able to remove tripoid banners from his site. Not so. They are there and very annoying too. I went to trouble of registering for the 50Meg webspace but do not want banners so will not use the site. I know that advertising is a great source of revenue but one wants to maintain some sort of control over what appears under one's name, at the very least one should be able to keep flashing banners out. Tripod's Help mentions ..." Read review

Good

AdvantagesUser friendly & simple

DisadvantagesAnnoying pop-up banner ad

"Tripod are very flexible. They support FrontPage Extensions, so you can allow things like hit counters and search boxes on your page. They have a step-by-step page editor fore complete beginners. You can also use an FTP client to upload your site. Unlike most service providers, they don't put annoying banners on your page. They have a pop-up banner ad that appears in a seperate window. This can be annoying, but it doesn't put unwanted things on ..." Read review

Tripod is excellent, easy to use and FREE

AdvantagesFREE, 10MB, easy to navigate and use, lots of tools

DisadvantagesThe banner pop-up, if oyu do not incorporate the advertising on oyur web page

"I've been with Tripod (albeit the American site) since 1997, (Tripod UK since 1998) and I think it's the best webhosting place you could ask for. For starters, it's FREE and they give you 10MB, but that's not all. It doesn't matter if you are a novice at the whole web-page game or an absolute HTML superstar - the site is easy to navigate, and there are tools for all levels of webmasters to create great looking pages. They cater for everyone. Uploading ..." Read review

Good for begginers

AdvantagesEasy to use, lots of templates and wizards,

Disadvantagesbanner and pop ups on all web pages, less features for advanced users.

"I used tripod to make my first web site and I was impressed with the results. The only problem is that the display a banner and a pop-up on every page which is annoying. They give you 50megs of space and have a wide range of wizards guiding you through the steps of making a web site. They have a good range of templated so if you don't have any good graphics, there is no need to work. Tripod has a html editor that can be used for advanced users. They ..." Read review

Advantagesfree web hosting

Disadvantagesadverising banners

"More and more of us are building and publishing to the web sites for private or for business use. Perhaps my recent experiences with Tripod, one of the major players in the free web space business, will be of assistance to anyone contemplating a move into the world of web design or indeed for those who are already up and running. Firstly may I say that my site www.nemesismagic.co.uk is purely for fun and to prove to myself and friends that all ..." Read review

Try Tripod!

AdvantagesFast, free and simple

DisadvantagesYou need to add some HTML for backgrounds etc.

"The Tripod Homepage Builder is relatively easy to use when compared with most other homepage building services. You can choose from two building methods: pure HTML for the professional, or the quickpage builder for the beginner or those who want a simpler page construction technique. I always use the simpler method, but it does help if you are capable of adding or changing some parts of HTML where needed (such as to add background pictures, music, ..." Read review

AdvantagesFree web site hosting, lots of info

Disadvantagesyou have to display their banner ads

"I have built a web page recently and was looking for a place to host it. I have 10mb on my ISP but that would I felt be too small. So I looked at Tripod. They offered me 50mb free. They also have lots of helpful info on building and publicising your site which has been very helpful. They have links to allow you to share banner ads (You put a changing one on your site and other reciprocate so that you get people coming to your site) and also an ..." Read review

Three Legs

Advantages50MB web space

DisadvantagesMust display Tripod banner on page

"When I first became interested in web page design I turned to Tripod after clicking thier banner on the top of a search engine page. I was suprised to see that the service was free, and the only commitment was for the user to display the Tripod banner at the top of thier web page. Firstly I desined a page usin the Web Page Wizard. This wizard takes the user through the basic steps such as title, background image / colour, body content, images ..." Read review

The Best Major Free Web Hosting I Know Of

AdvantagesSpace, service, good ftp, well designed homepage, caters for all, good ad choices

DisadvantagesNone yet

"Out of all the major free web hosting sites which include company's like: Homestead, Angelfire, Geocities, Fortunecity and 50megs. I found Tripod the best, heres some of the reasons why. 1. You get a whopping 50 megs, which is very large for a big web hosting company. At Homestead you get 16Meg, Angelfire = 5Mb at first but you have to request in 5 Meg segments for more space, upto 30Meg. Geocities = 15Meg, Fortunecity = not sure. 2. They have ..." Read review
