Best and free never really go well together.

You can certainly find good hosting for $4/month.

Free or cheap web hosting is not a great idea and like [email protected] stated "free and cheap do not go well together"

If you are selling products why would you choose free hosting?

Free hostings have a nasty habit of being down a lot, this would annoy your visitors and do more damage than good and not save you any money or make any if the website has many issues of being down

The support will also not be very good as paid customers will always come above free

You could try HostGator but I have never tried free hosting as we run dedicated servers in the USA with The Planet, these servers are managed and rarely suffer down time

I would seriously re-think your decision on free/cheap hosting and consider your business, why damage your reputation before you even get going?

Years ago we ran cheap hosting and for the life of me I cannot remember the name of the company, anyway, we had no end of problems every other day we were getting calls "website is down", trying to speak to someone at the company never got us anywhere so we just had to wait until the server came back online, we didnīt do this for long before we moved everything to the company we are now with - the stress was just too much and I just got annoyed in the end with spending my time calling a hosting company when I should have been spending my time generating leads/sales

The best web hosting services has unlimited domain hosting for just low price. Your business may start with only one web site. Make sure that a certain web hosting service provides total server up time guarantee. .

that is sad to hear you only have $4 max. for this option you should not looking for self hosted site.for even buying new name domain at least you need to spend $7 per year or if you like to get the .info domain that will less then a dollar but still recurrence.my suggest is focus on wordpress.com or blogspot.write best content you can do and stick with it. you wont regret on what your effort once you can do it at least 1 year

How do you get that? I have about 3 domains registered with them but I haven't bought any hosting packages yet.

Yea...free web hosting is definitely not a good idea. Hosting is by the month...I'm almost positive that there won't be a hosting company that offers lifetime hosting for an under $4 fee.

Your best bet is to get some more money (sell on craigslist, mow lawns, get a job, babysit) and then proceed to build your website. If you put little into your website, you will get little out of it.

Best free hosting is one which will provide data backup and protection guarantee, provide spam filtering, at least 99% server uptime, 24/7 customer support and allow you to use most of the hosting features. Best free hosting site will be the one loaded with less or no advertisements and banners. If you are looking for hosting your business website then I’d suggestion paid hosting as it is more reliable than free hosting. Now a days there are many paid hosting that you can find for a very low price and also most hosting providers offers money back policy.
