    I'm totally newbie & I have no money to invest, but i'm willing to start with free hosting and change it later to paid hosting, so it's that possible ? & is there any negatives ?
    Thanks for helping.

    You could start with a free hosting plan but i don't think its going to help you make any money as most free plans the Ip are already abused.

    With regular hosting prices now days anyone can afford a basic shared hosting plan. Heck cut out one soda and one candy bar a month and that will cover a basic plan.

    The deal is if you want something bad enough people tend to find the way.

    Never. Never trust free hosting. Decent host for 1.99 so... I understand when people say... I don't have 500-600 bucks to get started. But how do you pay for your internet connection? I'm not offending you... Just trying to help. Think about it.

    Free hosting is not a good option to start in my opinion as there might be too many spam site hosted on the same server which decreases your site's reputation in the eye of search engine.

    Moreover, there's no such thing as a free lunch on the Earth so actually you're gonna pay something to the free host owner other than money. I don't know what it would be.

    I recommend testing new scripts on free host or maybe learn to setup website using them. But one thing is to minimize the personal or secret data you provided to the free host.

    As they have told you, it is not recommended to use a free server provider. If you really can't afford paying a premium server, then I highly recommend you use a free blogging platform like Blogger or Wordpress.com, then later on you can migrate to your own server if need be.

    Free hosting are not good, lacks support, downtime. Go for paid costs 2-3$ per month

    I would never go with free hosts. Either way you will find yourself paying in one way or another. Most free hosts will either intrude your website with adverts or give you mediocre performance.
