There’s several — the top of the lot are Thinkhost and Hostpapa. Both have great affordable plans, and both fund environmental initiatives like tree-planting, awareness campaigns etc.

In my opinion, http://squidoo.com/greenwebhosting is one of the top green web hosting resources on the net today.

    From the services I’ve been with in my free-hosting days, the best that I could have thought of were ulmb.com and tyreus.com. Neither of these hosts advertises extensively but both are extremely professional with minimum-none downtimes.

    But once you outgrow a free-hosting account, it might be a good idea to start looking for shared hosts.

    Free web hosting stands for a webhosting service offered for free, so that one do not have to pay any money for the free web host service provided… Free hosting providers offer some free webspace to store website’s files on their servers as well as the other usual web hosting free features required to publish a free web site on the web… Actually, the presence or absence of so called forced advertisments, the adverts that some free hosts implement into websites they host for free…

    I would really recommend http://www.000webhost.com/173462.html
    1500 MB disk space
    100 GB data transfer
    PHP and MySQL
    Website Builder
    no advertising
    Never had any problems at all, they will help you with servers etc. control panel is easy to use.
    I pay £10 a year for the domain name, so that is the yearly cost of my site. Free hosting rocks :)
    Hope that helps

    If your current internet provider is Earthlink, AOL, SBC Global and others which provide a homepage; you can easily FTP your own webpage designs as a new homepage. And using a redirection service such as mydomain.com or the forwarding of a parked domain name at godaddy.com, you can easily “mask” the homepage URL with a proper domain name. So in a sense, you have a working ecommerce website disguised as a homepage while still paying your normal monthly Internet provider’s access and hosting fee of the homepage.

    Good luck!

    Freehostia is always a good choice. They are free (unless you want even more options), and there’s tons of different things that you can choose from : forums, guest books, photo galleries, all for free.
