    Web Host for Testing

    I'm a computer science major and I'm just now finishing up my first programming class (JavaScript). Our last tutorial is on AJAX and to test my tutorial program, I need to be able to host a couple of files on a server. I know NOTHING about web hosting and was hoping someone could point me to a free, easy to use web server where I could test my tutorial and case problem.

    I did a search and there's a ton of advertisement crap and very little useful information on what to look for.

    Thank you,

    Drew

    Do it locally. Set up your own server. XAMPP is pretty much the catch-all for all platforms. If you need help, there are hundreds of guides on installing it, though IIRC your root folder is htdocs in the installation directory.
