    If you're just using it for file storage, that won't affect you (apart from the spam, of course, and I get so much of that that any extra will be unnoticeable). The only problem I can see is the fact that they decided to pluralise it with a "z".

    I might try this but I'm not sure yet.

    Ya...some explaining: The "promotional emails" are from the network, about services and stuff, not from other parties. The design of the main page was wipped up really quick, so expect a better design for that in the future. As for all other pages, those i really cant change, because the hosting service is in conjunction with another company, and they dont allow me to change too much of the look.

    Sounds good, I'll use it just for game hosting, I guess. I'm worried my current host is going to get pissed off at me for wasting all her bandwidth with game downloads.

    RIP OFF, this site always asks me for a credit card number and the free trial ad keeps popping up preventing me from getting the free service
