I have a domain registered already. I googled "free web hosting" and came across thousands of offers. I'm pretty user users of this forum have come across this question before and have their opinion on which company is the best. I know hosting is very cheap but for what I need it for it would be waste to pay for it. Here are the criteria s I am looking for.

1. No banner or popup ads.
2. At least 250MB of storage
3. PHP/mySQL scripting ability
4. SMTP enabled. Ability to setup email contact form
5. Ability to play SWF or FLV files
6. No files size restriction.
7. Most importanly "0" Dollars.

Its hard to find a free host that allows this

4. SMTP enabled. Ability to setup email contact form
Mainly because they are trying to prevent spammers from abusing it. I pay 12 dollars a year and get all of the features you asked for.

Does this free Hosting allow for me to setup a email contact form and play FLV files. Also is there a file size restriction. I see under the description there is a Ads requirement.

I've been with them for about 3 years now. I don't have any complaints. Their support is good. When I first started with them I had the features of the first plan. Now I have 2500MB compared to 250MB, 51200MB in bandwidth. I don't know if its a mistake or what but things to keep increasing as years pass. They are also up to date with the latest version of php and mysql. Their is no file size limitation. As long as you have enough storage you can host the file. They will play flv files as well. As you can see on my site I do have a contact form.

1. yes
2. Its a PHP file size restriction. You can upload as big a file you want via ftp or whatever.
3. There are no ads required for the lowest package. Which meets your requirements.

If that's your site, then I recommend fixing the broken link that appears when you click on the 'Hosting' image (it goes to "shared.php", which doesn't exist).

The website is going to be completely redone. And fixing it doesn't really matter to me. Its a free web host, Im not the owner, im not making any money from it.
