Has anybody hosted some high traffic sites for free, in request for an advert, hoping that the banenr will generate enough evenue to cover the cost of hosting the free site ? I have been offered several similar contracts, and still have to decide!

We're hosting <a href='http://dmos.org' target='_blank'>http://dmos.org</a> for a friend for free. The advertising is mainly in the hosting section but we haven't really seen it pay dividends as yet.

host sites for free to get in return adversing is not too good, sites who get alot of visits can pay for hosting (usually)

That site hasn't been down for months - must have been an outage enroute somewhere.
Cheers
