Hello, can anyone suggest the best case scenario for creating a completely free website.
The most important thing for me is having maximum control of the design of the pages, other than that I do not need a lot of webspace, or email etc.
Free hosting is notoriously bad as I think you know due to your question about ads etc. Seriously, invest in a year's hosting if you can. If you really wanna go free then there are comparison sites; Free Web Hosting! - Page 1 but I wouldn't touch free hosting with yours :icon_wink:
Dream Hosting is a great cheap service for only £9.99 hosting for two years!
I only ever create very small sites also and I have never had any issues over about 3 years of using them as a hosting company.
I used 000webhost for a small site I made my dad and so far there have been no issues but then it's not something that's going to get much (if any) traffic or that I visit regularly so I'm not too worried about server up times etc..
