"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!

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
