Free website hosting
One of my friends recently bought a domain name and I helped him design his website. He's an academic and he wanted a site to market himself - with his CV, some personal info and some of his articles. I suggested that he start a blog but he's not really keen on that.
Even with all the pages and images put together, the total size of the site is less than 2 MB. He also doesn't expect Considering the fact that he also doesn't expect the traffic to be very high, I thought it would be a waste of money paying for some hosting with high specifications and suggested hosting for free on MySite.
Mysite.com offers 50 MB disk space with 1GB monthly bandwidth absolutely for FREE. The only catch is that you have to carry banners. My friend was not really happy with the idea of having banners on his site and was willing to pay a little bit more for their banner free website hosting. For only $3.95/mo, they offer 1GB space with 10 GB monthly bandwidth. This comes with 20 POP email accounts and FTP access as well. Really attractive package indeed.
