    free hosting? Use blogger.

    If you want to use hosting with your domain name you can try 000hosting. I tried them only to try out something and have no complaints. They put their mark on your website, so everyone will know that you are using their free hosting tho.

    not many places offer free hosting any more for non profits. If they do you will have to submit your 501c3 to get it.

    Now days web hosting plans are starting at a few bucks a month. Should not be hard to cover that expense. Heck cut out one soda a month and that just about covers the cost.

    I shake my head any time i see one of these "im looking for a free host" Most of these free hosts will just harm your website. There are hosts as cheap as $1 per month.

    Same here... I this is why I've started to point them all to this thread and just as someone fellow BHW member above said, a soda/two a month and you've covered basic hosting costs.

    I just bought 3 years of hosting from StableHost for like $3.50/month. If you aren't willing to put $3.50/month into your venture (non-profit or not), then I can't imagine it succeeding. You'll incur far greater fees as a cost for doing business. This is the exact same reason why I'm fine dropping $350-$500 for a lifetime license on some plugins (AffiliateWP, Restrict Content Pro, etc). I get a complete business model that I don't even have to hire a coder for, for $500! I get that some people don't have the money for plugins like that, but scraping up $150 bucks for 3 years of running an online business, that's a deal. You can make so much money in that 3 years if you work hard enough.
