i know of http://www.sitesled.com

it doesn't have any ads and has a community feel to it.

if your like me, and hate how you have to "share" the url then thats the bad part--like all free web hosting--the url is in your name. although its not too bad, i think

its run by the username that you use for the website.

http://username.site....com/index.html


also http://www.freewebs.com is one, but i dont think it gives you very much space

The best way to go is make a complete website in a folder in your computer, all the files, folders, etc., exactly as they will be on the server and then, if the site allows it, use an ftp client to upload them to the server.
And keep the site backed up on your machine in case the server loses any files.

i agree, thats the best way.

On sitesled you just browse and add on your files and images through the ftp straight from your pc...its pretty spiffy, i think.

Sweet, I am going to look at http://www.sitesled.com/, sounds cool.

I used to use dot.tk for a www.something.tk address, but theyve started a advert on the opening page. Other than that its alright.

Then I used www.brinkster.com for the hosting. Their 'educational' package is free.

I use frontpage to build the sites, easy :tazz:

if you're a beginner, any free server with FTP access would be a good place to start. CGI support is nice too, but that's sometimes hard to come by if you're going for ad-free and cost-free as well. ^_^ once you've got the hang of how to set up your site, directories, use FTP, etc. and you're ready to commit, there are a lot of good servers that have low monthly rates as well as PHP and CGI support (many require you to purchase your own domain first though).
