I have my own domain name and I just want to host a simple brochure-style website for my business. Nothing fancy, not even a blog. I don't want to pay any more for a web host, is there something free and reliable I can use?

I would use Wordpress.com or Blogger.com. Sure, they are blogging platforms however, you can make it look just like a Brochure-style website.

It will be stable, free and get the job done.

Try http://www.000webhost.com/

I have several sites running on them. 100% free, no ads.

Includes PHP, Mysql, Apache, FTP access and 1.5 GB of web space per domain.
You can use your own domain or one of their crummy subdomains.

Interesting. I've heard of them but read bad reviews re: customer support. But if you like it, it's probably worth a shot.

Heh, well as far as support is concerned -you get what you pay for...

You could always use Dropbox. Just put it in your public folder and then forward your domain to the public link. I did it with [mr-shirts.com][1] ... don't ask why i bought that domain

not too shabby. what all can it run?

(Jun 13 '11 at 13:14) grooveDexter grooveDexter's gravatar image

barely anything. no server-side scripts, no databases, no apache stuff (url rewrites, .htaccess). Basically, just HTML, javascript, and anything client side.
