    Where can I get free decent web hosting.

    Is there a web site that can give me a free hosting package and a free domain name. Thanks ~Jim~

    I have heard of free domain names but you should steer well clear of them. You don't get something like that for free without a catch. From what I've heard the catch is that they own the domain name and sooner or later they start blackmailing you under threat of hijacking it.

    You really need to own and control your own domain name. There's just no way around it.

    Personally I'd never use a free host either, but at least if you own the domain name it can't be stolen (as long as you're careful).

    The first domain name I had was a free one. After our contracted term (1 year), they sold it to the highest bidder (a few hundred dollars) and then got that person to pay for support from them. I think the ones that offer free domains are mostly squatters that get users to hand pick wanted domains for them.

    my church uses oneandone.com
    Its not free but for $3 a month its pretty decent. It includes the domain as well.

    I agree with the other posts. Stay clear of free sites! Only trouble and mischief are hosted there!

    1and1 might be OK if you live in Europe, but I don't recommend them for the US. I just moved a client from there.

    I know someone who's been running a small personal site for years now at http://www.frihost.com and he likes the service.

    It doesn't cost any money, but you do have stay active in their forums.

    a late reply but, what i do is use google page creator for hosting (up to 100mb), and then register a free domain from "Dot tk". There's a banner on the top of the site, but you can get rid of it for 2 euros. Might not be very practical but it works!

    Here's examples:
