Aleco.it and mnpoint are out of question due italian language.
(would you host your site in a brazilian web provider, with the site written in portuguese?)

Sorry, but no evidence about file upload facilities in 9netave

What kind of file upload utilities are you looking for?  The most common and easiest is FTP.  By definition, a web space provider has to have some method of transferring your information to their website.

Yes I do have you ever heard of FTP (File Tranfer Protocol). Get Cute FTP it's easy to use. I have a Website with them and they have the option to upload files from your browser! Thought that was what you were AFTER?????

Wait a minute, are you looking for a site that you can SUBMIT somthing to (ie software you have created)??? Or are you looking for a server, so you can start your own website?????

jfurr,

I just want to built a web site where the users can upload files to the server WITHOUT ftp´ing.

That is it.

If it is an easy solution as "try cuteftp" I would not ask to "the experts"...

thanks anyway

From what I can tell, he's looking for something that allows uploads, similar to www.geocities.com or www.fortunecities.com ..though I'm not sure either of these allow ASP pages.  BOTH of these sites have an option to upload files through the BROWSER instead of through FTP.

vincerubus - if you can not find one that allows use of ASP and also has an option to upload through http, then take a look at CGI...there is a CGI script called editpage (I can't remember who wrote it, but I think it's at "Matt's Script Archive") that can be set up to edit/create/upload pages through a browser.  If you're interested, I'll find the URL for the author.

editpage will upload any type of file .. html, gif, zip, or whatever...I use it quite often to upload from a computer that is behind a firewall that has ftp ports blocked.

Hello!  My favorite provider is Nextron - you can check out the Developers' Community service [http://www.dev-com.com].  However, if you have your heart on someone in Brazil, head for this Yahoo! category.  This should list the Internet Companies near you, and there is a subcategory you will see when you get to that page "access providers" - they may have more.  As for a personal recommendation, I do not have one since I have not done business with anyone in Brazil.  But this listing should help you research who has what you need at a price you want to pay.

I´d like to find an ended solution, not a list of providers to browse by myself. Of course I need personal testemonials about the quality of service, and thinks like that.
Thank you AsWas for trying to help!

For file upload through a browser you need a CGI script to handle the file upload. I have written several web sites that I can update and maintain through the web browser without using FTP (although FTP is needed initially to upload the first version of the site). I can also upload files (such as image files) to these sites through the browser.

If you want people to be able to upload files to storage space on the server then you need a service provider that either

a> allows you to write your own CGI scripts

or
b> provides a 'standard' script to allow for file uploads (I have not heard of any such however).

That´s great!

Do you know how any script to do that?
I believe my provider allows me to insert it, as I have my own cgi-bin folder laying around...

I suggest you look at the following url

http://cgi-lib.stanford.edu/cgi-lib/

This gives you a perl library that you can include in a perl script that allows for file uploads. Lower down the page there is a tutorial which specifically shows you how to do file uploads with the script. I think this is what you are looking for.

Just a comment, cgi-lib.pl gives you the basic ability to upload files. The full web site authoring through a browser that I mentioned above took in excess of 480 hours work, you can see one of the sites that use it at

I plan to make the full package a shareware program someday but it is not really ready for this just yet

I think this might help:

HTTP://www.crosswinds.net

Free, unlimited web space, and I know you can upload JPEG's as I've done it.

If you want another good provider (FTP this time, but take a look. I think if you're prepared to pay you can do via browser) is pair networks:

http://www.pair.com

good luck!
