How much web space/bandwidth do we get with our free Slingshot web hosting account? Can't find this info anywhere...

Also, does anyone know Slingshots nameservers? I'm hoping i can point my domain name to my free webhosting account.

Cheers :)

I thought we had 50 or 100MB. I'm pretty sure it tells you when you log into FTP or use the upload page (which you access once you log into webmail)

Bandwidth is, I imagine, just the same as every other ISP's free hosting: unspecified, but virtually unlimited within NZ (A safe bet should be ~1GB internationally, ~20GB nationally, ~100GB internally)

As for nameservers...

It's free ISP hosting. You don't get to choose the address any more than you get to choose your ISP email address.{account_username}

Detruire is correct, it's 50MB. I think there is a 2nd 50MB but that is outside the pub access level.

I don't think there is any usage/bandwidth limits.

As for parking your own domain in to{your_account_username}
You would have to use a redirection service from your domain name to Slingshots.

Ah thanks guys, looks like i'll have to sign up to a web hosting company, worth a shot.
