    Where can I get a dedicated server for free for a month? Or if someone can give me a dedicated server for a month or more.

    You can't is the simple answer. The complicated answer is because this is spam and hack bait.

    Why would someone give a dedicated server for free for a month? The only way you'd ever see something like that is if it was maybe 1st month free with a 1 year contract.

    If you just want a server to try out, there are many places where you can get one for under $100/month, even close to $50.

    Or go VDS....

    If you're just looking for the experience without the requirements, responsibilities, costs, and headache involved, why not try VDS/VPS (Virtual Dedicated Servers/Virtual Private Servers)? Most are using UML (User-Mode Linux) which is very stable and reliable. There are a ton of providers out there for about $30-40 per month, but for both cost and service, I would personally recommend http://www.pdxcolo.net/. I had my site there while waiting to relocate my actual box across the country, and wound up staying for another two months because the guys are nuts with support. They were $20/mo. when I left, and I had 1GB plus the standard resources for the allotment. What's nice about their setup is the one-click distro installation. I used Redhat because that's what my .tgz backup was ready to roll out to, but they also had Debian (Woody, I think) and Gentoo, not to mention three or four different kernels to install automatically.

    They're just one of a few, though. The thing is, I don't mind gushing about them because of how well they treated me.
