Does anyone know of a source for free web hosting. I am thinking of starting up a website and was looking but everything I find isn’t really free. I know they will have ads and banners in them but as I look to my right as I am typing this, so does this site… I’m looking at a toyota ad right now.

Roger,

There are a few inexpensive hosting services. You have to register a domaine name example www.xyz.com.
That is inexpensive I think I paid $20 dollars for 3 yrs. The hosting can be anywhere from a few dollars a month to hundreds of dollars a month depending on package, traffic bandwidth etc. It depends on what you are trying to do with website.

If you just want to show off some of your work and blog and not sell anything then look at hotmail – spaces, google these are free for sharing photos and making your own little web page.

Hope this helped. Any questions feel free to message me.

Wordpress.COM
Blogger.com

Free, stable, and not just for blogs anymore. ;)

Wordpress.com is a great place to start if you want something already set up and customizable. If you’re looking for something where you can have free reign over what goes on, pm me your info if you want, and we can talk offline. I host a number of sites—domain names for $10 and hosting starting at $30/year (no ads).

Wordpress.com might be exactly what you want then. It has a fantastic publishing system that is very customizable.

My site’s hosting is through Verio. It’s something like $11.00 a month & I’ve never had one iota of problem with them. They support Frontpage extensions for someone like me who doesn’t really know what they’re doing. It’s loaded with all types of clever features, none of which I use. Just a thought!

i dabble in html (webpage language). i know enough to get by. none of the fancy stuff. i took a class at the local community college a while back. i am not working right now so free is the way i have to go right now. even $30 a year seems a little unjustifiable right now. i would rather spend that $30 bucks on a piece of wood if you know what i mean. i have a yahoo email and a bellsouth.net email accts and neither, that i see, offer a free place to upload pages. i thought they did but apparently not.

Free hosting is everywhere.

Some are more restrictive than others. If you’re just starting out
as a webmaster, I recommend hosting that uses the CPanel interface.

I use 1and1
Cheap with no adverts
Free web sites often have ads that are not family suited.
You also dont know what will be advertised next to your items.
I aint an expert though

Check with your ISP. They may offer it.

Wordpress, as has been already mentioned, and also Blogger are completely free. Neither has any ads, at least none that I have ever seen.

Have your say...
