“Tripod is free”

ContraBanner 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...

Contramandatory 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...

ProLots of extras

ContraVery 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...

“I think Ive outgrown Tripod”

published 22/02/2001

ProFREE and easy to use with expansive space on offer

ContraThe "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...

Contrabit 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...

Contrapop-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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“Try Tripod!”

published 05/09/2000

ProFast, free and simple

ContraYou 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...

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...
