Go though that do a search and find that one you want:

<JFGI> free web hosts </JFGI>

*And no im am not saying what JFGI mean if you dont know go work it out and you should do what the term means to find out what it is

Well, there's webs.com (formerly freewebs as you listed above) which I have used. Honestly though I think freehostia is far better. With webs.com you only get single file web upload (no FTP, no multiple file web upload) unless you switch to a paid account. That means slooooow uploading. There is no PHP or database that I recall either for webs.com. You also get invalid <script> elements added from webs.com to any page that uses javascript (plus page tracker javascript which is likewise invalid) plus a javascript-generated banner ad stuck at the bottom of your index page (again, invalid last I checked). All-in-all it's a pain if you're trying to keep your pages all coded in valid XHTML for cross-browser performance.

I recently switched from webs.com to freehostia.com and I won't be going back. Server downtime is about equal so far (that I've noticed) but the user options are much nicer at freehostia.

Out of curiosity, what did you dislike about the freehostia service? The only real downside I've noticed so far is that you have to renew even a free account once per year, but honestly I don't think that's such a big deal... Is there something I should be warned about?

You can get a decent host for about $100 a year. If this breaks the bank, then I suggest reconsidering what you are doing with your site.
