    Which one is a good Free Hosting

    Hi,
    I spent 6 hours doing research on free hosting, read 100s of reviews and still didn't reach any conclusion. I want to use a free hosting that has a reliable uptime and don't show downtimes, I know what I am saying doesn't make sense as I am talking about free but I think if visitors are less so something like that should be available.
    I have hostgator but at that account I did a mistake and purchased the hatchling which only support 1 domain, so now I want to make another site which will have few visitors, can someone tell me honestly which free service is good, below is the list of names that I heard around internet, can someone tell me one name and give me a reason why?

    No free service is good, they aren't reliable or have a good track record of uptime. Also your web url is going to look like this: www.freehosting.mypage.com

    hostmonster is the best you can do for a best hosting company. Why are you against paying for one?

    Personally I would recommend using Awardspace, Thats where I started, and managed to use their databases and e-mail servers and found them great! You only get 500mb Traffic as far as I can remember, but its still a high quality service. Also when i've had a query regarding their services, I've used their 'Ticket Service' and they have always replied within 15 minutes, even on Christmas Day!

    I still use Awardspace and would always recommend them to either a novice or veteran web developer!

    I use Ipage. It is cheap and quite reliable. You also get lots of freebies when you sign up. The first six months is $1.99 per month (i think) then it goes up to $3.99. If you need noer than 6 pages it is about $15 / 10

    Try this freehosting I have been with them for more than 10 years and never had a problem. You can host your domain there.

    I'm a big fan of http://www.doteasy.com and have used their FREE hosting for numerous sites for many years with absolute satisfaction. The hosting is FREE when you register your URL through them for about $45 for 2 years. I feel the URL registration fee is competitive.

    I'm looking for a TOTALLY free DEMO host so will check out the above references.

    Why you want free hosting? I think free hosting will never give you the best performance. You can take hosting with cheap price or take basic hosting plans.

    I've used ipage, their control panel is horrible and very slow servers. I give them a 4 out of 10.
