Internet E Mails:
The first thing you would like to get in the net is email and here
is where you get your additional email address free.Though there are a
number of free emails I have chosen the following based on their popularity
and ease of use.
The first choice among the free Internet emails,
now offering premium service like POP facility (at $18 per annum) which
means you need no longer have to login through the browser. You can have
the comfort of using your favorite E Mail client and pickup your mail.
Many more attractive features like your own directory, filters which are
similar to Inbox assistant of Outlook Express and a mail block facility
which will send junk mail to the trash can even without your knowledge.
This is now a very popular E Mail which gives
firstname.lastname@example.org address and offers POP facilityas well as web based
E Mail. Better than even Hotmail, in terms of speed, particularly in POP
mode.Best of all this is free while Hotmail costs money.
You get the prestigious @yahoo.com address
and it is free.
Mail Forwarding services:
Many of us have long email address like email@example.com
which is difficult to remember and prone to typos.It would look better
if it is short. Besides you caan change the Email provider and still need
not change the address if you register with the forwarding services.
One of the best and provides more than one
alias and supports more than one forwarding address.Has mail bomb protection.
Charges $15 per annum for the services. You get a @pobox.com address once
This is a popular E Mail forwarder apart from
being a web based E Mail provider. It is free for the classical names like
Yourname@writeme.com etc.You can also opt for subscription service and
take professional aliases like Yourname@accountant.com,Yourname@Doctor.com
Free Home Pages:
You have surfed the net and got excited. Now you feel as to why
you can not have your own page.You can build your
home pages free and now you are offered upto 5MB space which means you
can put up all your photos etc. You can try out whatever you have learnt
in HTML or java.Alternatively all these pages offer templates wherein you
just fill up the blanks and your page is ready to be seen by anyone.
Space for this page of mine is provided by Tripod and initially
they offered 2MB disk space and now have increased it to 11 MB. Very good
interface and faster loading of pages. Home page builder is a good help
for novices.Premium services subscribers get chat rooms, email etc.
One of the most popular free home page hosts. Divided into communities
based on interests. Offer Email as a standard facility. Possibly due to
the large subscriber base it is comparatively slow.
This offers is fast and standard home page builder provides a good
choice. Only problem that i found is there is a security lapse and some
times someone's page is there in your URL. Could be a problem if the other
page which resides in your URL is obscene.
This is good and offers 5 MB and also lots of other facilities like
free POP Email address and home page builder. FTP is also now offered.
This is also a good free home page provider. Standard features include
11 MB space, E Mail and plenty of offers from various vendors of software

This site reduces the size of your JPEG and GIFF files for faster
loading of the images.
While on the net, do not browse. SEARCH. I have given here some
unusual search engines.
This is a parellal search engine where you can ask plain English
questions like "where can i find information on diabeties". It returns
the results from search engines in a single page in pull down menu, which
makes it really easy to navigate. There is also a spelling correction option
which corrects your misspellings before search. To protect Kids from the
seamier side of the net there is a kids option called Ask
Jeeves for Kids, which returns only sites suitable for kids.
This is similar to Ask Jeeves. Very good and comprehensive. this
returns more accurate results and searching as a phrase is possible by
default whereas it is not possibel in Ask Jeeves. Also it is now fast.
This uses multiple search engines and present the results in a single
form. So your chances of missing out info due to a particular site not
indexed in a particular search engine is remote.
This is an India related search engine.
This too is India related.
