    Free Web Hosting?

    Me and a few friends decided to start a web site but we don't have a very large member base at the moment so we are on free forum hosting. I thought the next logical step would be to get some free or very inexpensive website hosting that offered a domain name. So I got gfboards.net from Godaddy.com and tried out their free hosting.

    What is really bothering me is that their ad that they put on the top of every page apparently "interferes" with the registration images on PHPBB and SMF forums. I really don't know a lot about web hosts but this just sounds fishy to me. Should I switch web hosts?

    Well, you can switch to paid hosting which will be without any ad generally.

    Go with a host that you pay for, there are many that do not cost a fortune, then you do not have to put up with this.
