    Wait, do you want free hosting or a site where it will help build the site as well?


    Do you have any requirements of Space / Bandwidth?
    Use of ASP, PHP, MySQL?

    There are a lot of free hosts out there, just depends what needs you have.

    Since sterling is fairly strong right now, you can get a very very good deal from some of the american companies. I paid something like £10 a year on a promotional offer and I get more space than I know what to do with!

    I want free hosting as i have software to build the site, I want to show pictures and reports I wrote about Concorde's last days and my flight on it, all this will take up a lot of room.

    Space = as much as i can get

    What is ASP, PHP ?

    Don't know if i need mySQL.

    In time i want to learn HTML as well so i can program my own site, but for the time being i want to keep it simple and build it up over time.

    £10 a year is a good deal but whats the company name and how much space can you have ?

    fasthosts.co.uk do some good deals if you're looking to buy.

    asp and php are both web development languages

    as for the free ones there are a few to look at

    atspace.com
    50webs.com
    freehostia.com
    awardspace.com

    just a few that are free and worth checking out
