    I came across Free-CGI.com while looking for a quick-and-easy way to host some classifieds and was very pleasantly suprised.

    There are lot's of free CGI script libraries about, but this is the only one I've seen that actually hosts them for you - all you need to do is a bit of copy-and-paste.

    The scripts aren't perfect, but they're suprising powerful. For example, you can build a good classifieds site with it, or postcards, forms etc etc. Definitely worth checking out if you don't want to get your hands dirty with CGI scripts.

    As far as I can see the only thing they get out of it are a couple of banner ads, which is well worth it for the hassle it saves.

    Check it out :cool:

    CGISpy - http://cgispy.com - provide a similar service as well. If youre looking for a free banner rotator that doesn't insert it's own ads then try this service.

    I havent tried any of their other services (classifieds, forms, etc) but I reccomend the banner rotator.

    I am in no way affiliated with CGISpy.

    Actually you would be surprized how easy it is to set up most cgi scripts. You might want to try with some basic ones and get away from having to use remote hosts in general.

    Services like free-cgi and cgi-spy are intended for people who don't have access to cgi on their servers.
