    What is the best free webhost in your opinion? I have had expereince with FreeWebs, AngelFire, Tripod, and Brinkster and HelioHost. For me, the best is HelioHost.

    With cheap hosting being only $10 per year, I would prefer to pay for hosting rather than rely on a free provider that could go out of business at anytime.

    Most free web hosts impose advertising on your website. This is done to cover the costs of providing your site the free web space and associated services. Some hosts require you to place a banner on your pages, others display a window that pops up every time a page on your site loads, while still others impose an advertising frame on your site.

    With current web hosting prices it's really surprise why anyone would want to use free ones. Maybe for quick testing or spaming?

    with free hosting sometimes you lost you lost all your data so i prefer to use paid hosting because if you are serious business person you have to choose a better place to stale your business. now a days there are very low and trustworthy hosting website are available i think we should use them.

    A few years ago I used Freehostia. I do not know how are they doing now but it was good hosting with no advertisements on my website. It had low CPU usage limit and did not offer so much disk space and bandwidth as paid web hosts but for a small website it was sufficient.

    I've used freewebs before but not for long. I was aware on how important a real hosting is so I paid for mine not a little later after I got freewebs. Free hosting can be used to test out new websites or techniques for a big project.

    Well if site is important to you, go with paid host.
    Use free one just for testing or so.

    Wordpress is NOT a hosting service at all.
    Now if you want a free wordpress site, you can get one there.
    Just like blogspot.
    Or tumblr.

    I used to use byethost and 000webhosting as free hosts for my start-up site. Now i only use them for small sites in my network to reduce the cost.

    Maybe it's silly but I really wouldn't trust free sites, it's just one of those too good to be true (or reliable) things haha

    FriHost. Have used it for 7 years. Just like cheap shared hosting. forum support and no ads. You have to be active in forum. Like couple posts. have direct admin and unlimited addon domains.

    Not entirely true, free hosting might be useful in case you want to create a network of websites for ranking purpose. I have hundreds of websites on a lot of free hosting and it saves me lot of money.

    HelioHost seems to be one of the very few free hosting providers who offer Java / WIndows hosting.

    I used it and they are fine for static sites but when I tested a Worspress I ran into all sort of troubles.
