    Are you a newbie & I don't have money to buy hosting .trust me I have been there before ,but due to my long research I discovered viewen . Com ( am not affiliated with them ) ..they recently brought an upgraded plan also but before there was none, but you might have to upgrade if your visitors are too much for the server to handle...

    Free web hosting is just a waste of time. There is no security in free hosting and your site will remove or deleted at any time. Poor server quality is also there.

    Yes newbies can use it but still it is better to use hosting which costs few dollars per month than to use a free hosting.

    Free hosting can phish some data from the users who tried it for free. A good developer needs to be cautious.

    Ronvoker is right. Better buy a hosting for a few dollars but do not use free hostings.

    Man, there are hosts where you pay 1 or 2 bucks per month. Why not spend 1 or 2 dollars? Just google for it.

    https://www.heliohost.org/ is decent for free hosting, uptime isn't the best but is decent enough and supports a lot of tech for if you wonna use it for educational purposes.

    to make money you should invest money , free things won't work for you , I've tried free domains and free hosting many times before and whenever you receive over 100 visitors a day your site will get removed .

    goodbood is right. To make some money first you need to invest some money. When I started working with websites I was using free hostings too but after some time I realized that free hostings su**s. It lags and etc. 1-2 dollars per month is not a big amount of money so do not save on hosting.

    Hosting is important. You don't want to risk a bad visitor experience because your hosting is trash. If you don't purchase your domains through Namecheap, I would recommend their hosting. I'm going to give Amazon Lightsail a try.

    I dont recommend free hosting. It's very unstable, accounts get deleted very frequently.

    They may even post ads on your site or replace your whole site with an ad of their own which is not good for a brand.

    Honestly i was much happy with viewen but now their service is very very poor and even their servers got hacked so many times and backdoored by hackers and they can't even handle this thing properly, i was victimized 3-4 times, At this time, my opinion is not to go with viewen if you are planning to go longtime..

    Don't waste your time using free hosting.
    You can get very cheap hosting services that will give reliability to your websites.
    If that's what you intend to get.

    I don't even like using paid shared hosting let alone a free one. Good knows what the others on your server do. Kind of you to advise the newbies, but they should also know the risks involved.
