    I've got some clients that I'm setting up websites for. Some of them are on a tight budget and can't/don't want to pay for hosting.

    Therefore, I was thinking about forwarding their domain to a Weebly site, but I don't really like Weebly all that much. Any recommendations?

    I know webs, weebly, and wix are all possibilities.. but most of them have annoying ads, saying the site is free

    (these type of sites are mostly simple professional websites)

    Get Them a Free Host, Many Thread About it, Just let them buy a domain name, for 10$.
    The point is Make sure they will pay You, lol, And BTW your Title Is Misleading, I thought you were giving free hosting.

    Why not sign up for hostthename, it's like $12 for a year, and you can add a few sites there.

    Get yourself Hostgator shared hosting (the one with unlimited domains) and use that for hosting their sites. Surely you can get a few $ more from each one to justify $10 / month.

    Not only will this solve all the usual problems with free hosts but you can also increase the value of the "website design" package you're offering by including hosting in it.

    Yeah, I have some people on those, but they still pay a small monthly fee to us for hosting... This guy just wants something cheap.

    Maybe you could try freehostia. I've been using the free web hosting service in one of my websites.
