    Hey guys,
    I started promoting for club events last September (2009), and on October 30th I opened my own website. Since then, I stopped promoting in February (at least for now, we'll see) and just use the website to post my DJ's mixtapes and post information about my MMA school and other non-club-related events..

    I want to know this...

    I got a completely flash site,
    I do not want to pay for hosting anymore however,
    is there any hosting service I can go to that will work with this current site of mine?
    Size for the flash work and everything wouldn't be a problem, just compatibility and speed of a free host concerns me..
    Also, if my domain expires November 1st, and I bought the domain through 1&1, can I use GoDaddy to re-buy the same domain name and just use it to redirect to the free host?

    I'm considering just using Yola.com for my service, pretty nice overall IMO, can work out to be fine and just a small advertisement on the bottom, I won't bother using the flash version..


    Summary:
    So, free hosting thats worth it?
    Just go with Yola?
    How to renew domain?

    I'm just trying to decide how many new business cards to order with the domain name, if its here for another year why not leave it on longer, if its gonna go in november then I'll order just a few..

    Or if someone can just answer this, If I use the Yola site, I can use my own domain, but is there a way to make that domain also used for custom email addresses? so [email protected] allows me to receive emails to it, otherwise I gotta go with a yahoo account or something, not so professional...
