    Look harder

    Two of the most popular ones offer ONE gigabyte of web storage with a TEN gigabyte monthly traffic allowence and NO adverts.
    Plus SQL database and SMTP support, Cron jobs etc.. one will even let you run a chat server scripts and allow a Top Level Domain
    name to be used with a free hosting account.

    You know what they say, if it appears to be too good to be true, it probably is. You just want to have a site in which you have control and can be sure will perform as expect. With free hosting, you'll get what you pay for. There are plenty of relatively inexpensive hosting sites to choose from, that are reliable and give the user many options.

    If your site hits "big time", it will probably crash, even if you're not using free hosting. Then you will probably need a server
