online file hosting (with ftp)
I currently have my own website hosting, but i only have 500mb of space which is fine for web pages, not so much for files.
What I want to do is get a central file storage location, which I can access both from a browser when in university, and from an FTP client when i'm on my macbook so I can store and access the files i put on there from anywhere.
Can anyone suggest a good free service that does this?
I don't know of any free file spaces where you can accomplish what you're talking about, unless your University provides you with one. (Mine did). But 500mb on a hosting company is definitely on the low side nowadays!
Our favorite hosting company is HostMySite.com, and their basic Linux-based hosting plan comes with 20GB of disk space for about $10/month.
Another option - If you have a desktop machine at home with a cable or DSL connection, you can setup a simple server at home, and FTP (or http) to your home IP address from anywhere you like.
I have been looking at DropBox Its still in private beta but it looks like the sort of thing im after.
