UBBCode is like HTML tags, it allows you to customize your post by adding HTML like functions like pictures, or links. It is also required to post things like CGI or HTML>

Brian,

Thanks that is very helpful.

I do have a couple of questions.

Can you explain what a web server is and how a person can get their own, as you have? Is this like having your own website or something?

Also how do you find people with web servers (besides yourself of course) who host stuff for other people?

That's asking a lot Brian, so if & when you are able. Thanks.

Victor

Okay here goes, a server is a computer that stores and sends information over a network like the internet. That information can be HTML documents (websites and email), binaries (.zip .exe .rar .rpm .gz whatever) it can be media (.gif .jpg .wav .avi .asf .wma etc) it can be just about any type of computer file. If you have a website then you have access to a server, however, that does not mean that you will always be able to remote host a file (have files on your site accessible to other sites besides your own) many free hosting providers will host sites but not files. But if you have a server you can host anything you like.

A web hosting package will run you from $10 to $200 a month for a "small site" and there may be additional fees for bandwidth usage (number of "hits"). To get your own server space look in the yellow pages under "internet hosting providers"

As for people willing to host files, all I can suggest is asking your friends, if you have any in the IT business, or look for some one offering free hosting to NPO's (non-profit organizations)

Does that explain it?

One more note, if your using an image from a small site it's a good idea to ask before using it, because the site may have to pay for bandwidth usage.
