    "Excellent small program for web hosting"

    December 21, 2004  |  

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    I've used this for over a year, and this is one of the most user friendly web servers around. Definite thumbs up on all three categories.

    "Abyss rocks!"

    December 8, 2004  |  

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    Abyss is the best server program for personal hosting. You don't need to be a geek to understand how it works (compare to Apache's text editing console), everything is very intuitive and all the settings are configurable via its console which display options just like a normal webpage. Very small installer size for even modem users. If you would like to know what is a server and how a server works, use Abyss and I promise you will learn a lot by hosting a site yourself. Have fun! :)

    "Great Server and Easy to Use!!"

    December 2, 2004  |  

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    I highly recomend this server, it's really easy to use, powerful, easy help and great forums, where you can have an answer to almost any question. I've trid Apache and some Apache packages preinstalled, like Triad. But this is simply easier, smaller and for my needs I think is the best. Ahh.. and it's free. I hope this guys continue with their great work...

    "One word: "WOW!""

    November 26, 2004  |   By Web-Eagle

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    One word: “WOW!” If I’d known it was this easy I would have done it sooner. I just wanted to practice scripting in PHP, and didn’t want to pay a host to just play around. I d/l’d this file and within 10 minutes had a server running. The instructions even told me how to get PHP, by the time half an hour had passed; I was sending scripts to MY OWN server and getting back responses. I used my ISP’s SMTP address and was sending out e-mails in less than an hour.

    Actually most of the time was taken up by my reading. (IÂ’m a little slow at 1am.) There was very little set-up involved.

    Although you don’t have to register, registration is free. For a “personal web server”, I can’t imagine a better product.

    Ok, IÂ’m gonna to go script now.

    Bye!

    “Happy Camper”

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    I love the control panel it is easy to operate and fun to work with host my hosting company great. We got an old version of the use to be free activehtml from download.com. To the people who say they didnt get asp bla bla, it clearly states it is made for cgi, not asp you can add asp but you have to pay for it you should have to pay for new versions the old one is free. its two diffrent companys im glad abyss is alive still. I have used abyss for 6 years now good luck!

    "Nice Little Web Server"

    November 15, 2004  |  

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    I have found this web server to be very user friendly and well formed. I downloaded this program as a testing server for my personal web site. It took only a few minutes to get it up and running, and the interface was very easy to handle. I use php scripts, and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to integrate php with the web server. I didn't have to do any major config work. My only issue so far is that a nag screen has started asking me to get a key code. The product was supposed to be free, so I will be greatly annoyed if getting a key requires me to pay anything, but I haven't checked yet.

    "Without Compromise"

    October 21, 2004  |  

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    Just think! In a matter of minutes you could be hosting your own web server on your own PC with no fee, no pop-ups, no ads, and an unlimited downloads/uploads/storage (depends on pc's performance and connection speed and only if you use this product). I highly recommend checking out this product. You'd be unwise not to. Also, if you have a dynamic IP address, you will need a "Dynamic Update Client" in order to effectively point visitors to your ever-changing "awesome" server!!!

    "Easy to Use, Great Features!"

    October 17, 2004  |  

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    This is an easy to use program. It has made life so easy. I'm a student and its great to test security and how things act on the web. Even when I try to make it crash it wont. Only draw back is everyonce in a while (not very often at all) it will go down, but it only takes a second to bring it back up.

    "Great, easier to use than a free online website hosting service."

    October 5, 2004  |  

    Version: Abyss Web Server X1 X1

    Summary

    This server was great for building websites of any and all types. It's so simple that even I can work it, and it takes up so little resources on this one computer that I can play a video with this in the background.
