Free Web Site Hosting 

There are generally two sources of free web site hosting. First is your Internet Service Provider. Many ISPs offer your space for your web site as part of your Internet Access package. The ISP usually has some limitations on size, monthly traffic, use for commercial purposes and use of your own domain name.  The second is commercial web hosting companies that offer free space in exchange for letting them run ads on your site. Limited site size and the ads are a  the main drawbacks of this choice.
