For those that have their own mango/comic online what's the main site you use to host it? i tend to use smackjeeves but that's because it's the only good one i really know of, and i'd like to know what other options i have. i don't like using tumblr because the community is absolute shit. any suggestions?

I assume we're talking "free".

Smackjeeves is one of my preferred solutions.
It's neat, well organized, and customizable.

There's also Drunk Duck (http://www.drunkduck.com/).
They seem to have renamed it to The Duck. I find that funny.
They look neat enough, but I've never had any personal experience

Comic Fury (http://comicfury.com/)
Never had any experience at all, but looks like a rotten community to me.
It looks customizable enough though, so w/e if you just need a host.

Comic Genesis (http://www.comicgenesis.com/)
Looks okay, but not sure how alive or friendly it is...

Comic Dish (http://comicdish.com/)
I actually like the look of this one. Very minimalistic, but active.
Oh, and more customizable than I was expecting. *bookmarks*

Your own Website
A pretty good idea if you can code, and don't mind either paying, having an ugly subdomain or not being able to find it on google.
I would suggest getting a free .co.cc or .cz.cc domain and hosting it with some random free host, but they no longer show up on google...
Not sure about .tk, but if it shows up on google that would work well enough.


All that I could find for now, but that + DA is really enough.

You can host on dA too. It's pretty simple and annoying at the same time.

Yeah that was my reaction * A* If that's what the admin pages color scheme is, no thanks. (Alien Slime Green, Navy Blue, Black and Gold do not a good color scheme make)

I'd recommend learning some HTML in the future, if only so you can figure out how things work (I myself often find myself editing templates when I'm short on time)... And if I remember correctly, there are some comic reader script templates around...

But yeah, hosts are always good XD Nice and simple.

You can also get a free account in Wordpress (http://www.wordpress.com) post your comic that way. You will have to put your images in someplace like imageshack though. :<
