Hi, I want to create a simple webpage, but I have no cash for monthly fees. What I want to do is put up pictures by linking to free image hosting sites. I also have a domain name that I'd like to use. Having adds on the site to pay for it, is fine by me. So I was wondering are there any free hosts where something like I want is possible?

Some host providers have excellent packages for as low as 99US a year, which also includes the Domain name. That would give you 12 months of full throttle no (HOST) ads hosting to see if the idea works. Then add Adsense to defray operating costs.

Free hosting can be found online, but free almost always comes with a downside. Their terms of service may restrict what you can do and they may show ads on your site.
You can get a real domain name and hosting without having to spend a lot. I would realy recomend you concider this.
My main reason for not using a free host is simply lack of ownership, what hapens when your site becomes realy popular. Technichaly you don't own it. think long term and go with a low cost hosting company.
