    Are there any good free website hosting sites other than social networking? ex: Small busi.

    I have searched all over for good web hosting sites and the only thing that I can find are web sites offering free trials and others that are way too complicated.

    If your actually looking for a hosting for a small business you shouldn't go with free hosting, but since it is what you asked for check out ecrater.com they offer a free store front, though you can't do too much in the way of customization. Also if you're looking for a blog style site and don't mind templates blogger and wordpress are hosted free.

    I agree with mattcarpet, for a small business you are probably better off paying for webspace. However, many individual internet plans include some "free" webspace. For instance Earthlink offers 10 GB per email address as part of an email hosting service. ATT  and others offers similar plans.

    Web hosting doesn't really cost that much. You can get some decent plans for around $6 to $12 per month. If you are serious about a small business web site, pay for a hosting plan. It is much more professional and it is much better for search engine optimization.

    1and1.com and HostGator.com have some pretty good plans and are worth checking out.

    I use GVO who are in association with wwKiosk. $44 dollars a month inclusive of autrepsonder, conferencing software and more seems a good package.

    If you want web presence with SEO try Wordpress for free.

    You get what you pay for. If you really want a web presence dont underdo, overdo, look for a provider with unlimited domains, you will have more and ftp,php as well as blog platforms. you may not be into all of this now but you will be soon. A good web host with all of this as well as good uptime and bandwidth can be as little as 6-10 bucks per month. If you dont need a lot of high end stuff I use just Host, sister company of host gator.

    If you want a pure blog I use wordpress for free but you cannot use it as a sales or affiliate site.Wordpress is one of the most Google recognized blog sites on the web.   
    Best regards

    Avoid free hosting if you can.  There is always slow speeds and downtime.  Something you cannot afford in a business.

    Paid hosting doesn't cost alot. Looks more professional using it. Try hostgator.com, they have various packages to choose from.

    HI, DedrickS,

    GoDaddy.com and Domaindo.com offer free hosting programs. The downside is all the ads that come along with "FREE." They can be distracting and perceived as unprofessional depending on the content of your site.

    What is the nature of your website? This key question can move you in a direction of free vs. paid.

    I was once like you looking for free services until I found out it gets you nowhere in internetmarketing. I spent years on the net trying to make money - never did make enough to justify the hours I spent clicking the mouse and tapping the keyboard. I learned the hard way, a domain name and a reliable web hosting is a necessary expenditure in any form of online business. You give nothing you get nothing.

    Good luck.

    You absolutely do get what you pay for.  Good hosting doesn't cost a lot.  As they say, the most expensive price is FREE.  It's just more than what you receive for free, but it's also your mindset and what that is costing you.  What exists in your belief system that you cannot create the funds from whatever you are doing to be able to afford inexpensive hosting.....

    I agree with george6928 and liuwenhua as well. In essence nowadays hosting doesn't cost much, and you can get reliable hosting for a price that cost less than a meal at McDonalds.

    I have been with HostGator for over a year now and I just signed my friend up and I used coupon code: HOST994HGH for him and saved him close to $10. I have been with at least 5 other companies and HostGator is really one of the best.

    If you are really new at it like me. windows live has a pretty good and easy free website. I mean like everyone says you get what you pay for. I have had a few free websites on with them. The oldest being about 4 to 5 months, and I average about 140 visits per month. I am just now trying to find out if they would be worth paying for hosting. I made the websites, and I'm not really good at it. I have just recently began to sit down and try to read some instructions. But I'm not too good with them because of the terminology they use. It seems if you want to learn something like this you almost have to have a knowledge of it before you can learn it LOL... But you can check out my websites with them to see what you can do with basic computer knowledge. I'll list them below, remember don't laugh, I'm a newbie... http://www.grumpy1.com     http://www.grumpysbooks.com       and    http://www.haarps.com           NO LAUGHING!!!!!!!!!!
