Want To Create A Free Webpage

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?

50 Webs allows you to host free websites, but be sure to check out their TOS first.

Have you tried searching for "free web hosting" on Google?

Seems like a logical first step...

First thing to do is to check if you ISP offers free web space as part of your contract. There would also be a good chance that it would not have intrusive banner ads on it.

Thanks piatkow but I don't have an ISP of my own. I'm using a friend's PC.

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.

Also try Free Space for free webspace.
