Does anyone have experience and can recommend a free web hosting sevice?
There are lots out there. And there are a number of websites like the following that have lists:
There are some bad ones out there, but many are good as long as you don't mind the limitations. [It has been a long time since I used one, so I can't recommend anything specific.]
By the way, remember to back up your files often! Some free webhosts might not be stable.
At the same time, remember you can pay about $5/mo for relatively unlimited hosting (still limits on space and so forth, but nothing that is a problem for the average personal website).
A friend recently recommended this webhost:
The idea is that you only pay for what you use, so if your site is small it will be very inexpensive.
Did you have a lot of media files? Back when I was doing this, I was looking for free hosting that had some room for videos as well-- that was very hard to find. So if you don't need that-- if you're ok with 100mb or less, then you can probably get a free host that doesn't have many other limitations.They don't really have that many limitations.
I cant get to your old site?
I dont know of any free webhosts, but I use Machighway here in Denver, USA. They host people all over the earth, and they specialize in Mac users(which my classmates and I are). They cost about $100 a year for a regular hosting account(I have 2). But its well worth it. I think they have cheaper ones too nowadays. They also have 24/7 phone support, which I guess wouldnt be OK for you over in UK, but I highly recommend them.
I have tons and tons of pictures on mine, and its not even a fraction full. Also have hundreds of videos of our pets, grandkids, and some river-rafting videos. And my grandson will have many of his Minecraft videos coming soon.
And I thank you immensely for helping me last year with my photo gallery, and I will have more questions, this is a lot of fun, and I am very very glad I found this forum.
I am the same capecodlilly, but for some reason my password will not work any more, got a new one emailed to me last night, it worked then, but not this morning, so I went ahead and created a new account.
