||Listing Reviewed: Brinkster Free Hosting
Strengths: It's free
Weaknesses: lack of: ftp, global aspx, code behind; req'd advertising
Details: For free, it was decent but trying to deploy an ASP.NET project (which was my main reason behind looking for hosting) required tweaks that made it a drag. Inabiilty to use code behind reversed a lot of the ASP.NET appeal. Also, not being able to use compiled assemblies (.DLLs) sucked. Could live with that until they started making the free accounts have advertisements. The ads messed up the design of my site, too. I closed my account after 6 months when I visited my site and a freaking hemorrhoid web site was one of the ads! Not sure what rotation they had on the ads because the hemorrhoid site came up very often. That's where I drew the line. I give it a 3 only because it was free - otherwise it would be a lower score.
