    I stopped using my host I had been with for a few years recently because twice he screwed up and suspended my accounts through some error where it showed that my account was unpaid even though my paypal subscription was normal.

    So since I barely used it for anything I scrapped hosting completely and had just been using redirects via the registrar.

    Since then though I realised I would like some very basic hosting because I want to use php arrays for some domains and other simple scripts like that. These cases are only occasional though so only need it on one or two domains.

    Would free hosting do the job for this and if so which would you recomend or would you advise going for a very basic paid plan?

    Sure the free hosting could get banned or suchlike but it wouldnt be much to make another account.

    Thoughts?

    Nowadays you can find hosting for $1 / month , even a Linux VPS for $1 a month. You can host your scripts on some free hosting packages also but make sure you run a dummy website on that. Free hosts will close your account if you will keep only a few scripts ( and no actual website ) on the server. The reason for this is the fact that in one way or another they force some ads to your website ( Nothing is really free today ) . Also make sure to make backups if you store some kind of data on the server. Good Luck

    Get some 10$/year shared hosting. Free hosting is not reliable
