Default Recommend Free Hosting Site

Can anyone recommend a free hosting site for someone who owns a domain name and has low traffic?

No, I can't recommend any free hosting sites.

Before you go with a free hosting company you might want to start here.
http://www.freewebhostingtalk.com/

As cheap as paid hosting is now you would be a lot better off than with a free hosting company.

The hosting company KCVH has small hosting packages for about $20.00 for life with their usual support and cpanel.

We have several small business clients on this package and have had no problems with them on a shared hosting plan.

Good Luck

Thanks for the info blake! I have some clients that don't have a lot of traffic or storage requirements.. I thought it may be a good option for them.

It is very good deal for the hosting. How long have you been using the services from this company? I am looking for a hosting and I don't know how to choose a good one...if they are reliable.

I have another question...getting a package ( hosting and with free domain name ) from one supplier, or getting a domain name from one supplier and hosting from another supplier, is better.

Thanks for the link.

I my advice is to stay far away from free, or one time fee hosting companies.

This is a crucial function of the web site (to be hosted), so I would go with one of the companies that you pay every month, and that has been around for some time.

A one time fee? I wonder what that has in common with a Punzi scheme..

Im surprised by that . Is that view shared by many? i always pay per year as it is such a (relatively) small amount

Sorry, I meant to emphasize a subscription system where you pay yearly/monthly/x I pay yearly as well.

I can remember back when hosting was so expensive I had to pay by the month.
