    Question Is it possible to offer basic web hosting to community members?

    I run a couple communities and I am always looking for ways to enhance the features to both members and donating members. I have a good dedicated server with plenty of room and I was wondering if there are any scripts (I have looked but can't locate one) that would allow me to host web pages for my members. Of course, I don't want to manually add all these so I thought I would see if anyone knew of a script (etc) that would handle this like some of the free communities probabably use ..(Geocities,etc)
    Please let me know if anyone uses something like this or has a custom setup similar to it.
    Thanks,
    David

    Hey Frisk - just curious, but where and what have you looked for?

    Take a look at Hotscripts or CGI-Resources and look in the category for "homepage communities" and you'll find lots of options. I looked once upon a time and never really found just what I was looking for - so I'm afraid I'm not up to date on what's out there now.

    If you find a winner - please let me know! :-)

    Cheers,

    Steve

    fritz, just curios: why did you post your request in the "usability and accessibility" forum ?

    Reduz, I may have posted this in the wrong place, and if I did, I welcome it being moved to the right one. I considered Usability to be how functional (features) a site is.. ex. Resources, Galleries, and so on.
