    Are there any free hosting sites?

    I'm not interested in free hosting for Wordpress.com or Blogger. I'm looking to install Wordpress.org- I already have a domain but just need hosting and want to get free hosting temporarily until I can afford a hosting solution.

    I have unlimited hostgator hosting and you can host in my account free until you feel you can switch to a seperate account. You dont want to spend anything.. A new blog in my account of 10/15 is not going to hurt me

    Pls let me know

    Thanks

    If you can avoid free, I would do so at all cost especially for a blog. It is going to be a nightmare to migrate from a free hosting provider to a paid hosting provider. You can get web hosting from $3/month these days.

    Free hosting is not for serious players. Free hosting is prone to limited space,bandwidth and resource usage .

    i have bad experience using free hosting service
    the server is down many times, so i can't access my website
    just try to citohost.com, it's just $10/year using coupon code
    or ufohost.net only $7,5/year using coupon code
    search the coupon code at webhostingtalk.com

    If you want free and you have a blog, why not go with a specialized blog hoster like blogger or etc?
    My advice is to really keep to paid hosting. I started off the same way you did and I went with paid hosting and got a free domain as well. The shared plan was more than enough for my needs and the domain made a huge difference.

    Hostgator has some pretty good deals. When I first signed up, I used a coupon code to get the Baby Package free for a month!

    I would be very concerned about the sustainability of $2/year hosting, probably even more so than ad-funded "free hosting".

    I've very bad experience with free web hosting. Some of them are practically better than charged hosting. But one day they just shut it down and everything gone.

    The best free web hosting provide I have found is ingenyes.com. They provide 50GB of web space and unlimited bandwith. They dont put ads on your website either.

    Like most of the posters in this thread, I am not a fan of free hosting in general. But if you really want to try a free host check out freewebspace and freewebhostingtalk.

    I second godaddy for almost-free hosting. Very happy with them. Their control panel can be a confusing beast, but on the other hand it is very full-featured.

    I was searching "WebHostingLobby" on Google to see what came up and ran across this thread. Thank you for spreading the word about our project.

    I agree. I personally would NEVER sign up for web hosting this cheap simply out of fear of sustainability. However, my Web Hosting Lobby project is not intended to make profit via hosting (i.e. $2/year is simply my cost). I use JaguarPC and InnoHosting reseller accounts (cost is $20/month for each) so rest assured there won't be a need to 'go out of business' as my only cost to sustain this is $40/month.

    The goal is to drive traffic through very low cost web hosting and offer other products that will bring revenue/profit, all of which will be donated to charity to support orphans.

    As mentioned on the website, I am an Accountant by trade and am simply doing this on the side as a project to fulfill two passions of my own, technology and philanthropy.

    50webs.com is offering free hosting for static sites. The free hosting offer does not provide MySQL or any database support. If you have a static site, you may try their free hosting offer.

    these days hosting become very affordable so try it you don't need to spend a large amount you can do it with $3-$5 per month.

    There is lots of disadvantage from free hosting server as other has described here. so change your mind sat and go with any cheap hosting company.

    I also would go with this option. Free means you won't have to pay money ... but you will have to have ads ( for example )

    Hi,

    I never believe on free hosting so i would suggest you to go with Paid hosting. You should go with Net4 a leading web hosting company that will fulfill all your requirements with 99.9% server uptime guarantee and fully customer support at very competitive prices.

    There are many free hosting sites. There are also many drawbacks to free hosting. Sometimes you can't host your own domain. You may also have ads on your site which are run by your free host. More complicated issues such as downtimes, lack of support and the potential for you host to disappear are all also legitimate concerns. There are many good host which offer great values. When you have a paid host you get the benefits of excellent uptime as well as around the clock support. A few of your own ads and some affiliate memberships can have you earning enough for paid hosting before you know it.
