are you paying for your own isp?  if so, do they have a hosting service?  if not, pay the isp in your area that does have hosting and it'll essentially be free.

seriously, there's no such thing as a free ride.  not with all the script kiddies and pr0n mongers.

www.neopages.net --> all that, but you must apply
www.web1000.net --> all that, but no php

I've seen a few others but most of 'em were foreign language.  You may be able to get someone to host you, depending on the type of site you have.

If you REALLY REALLY want all that for free, then you can host it on your own computer and get a free short domain (ex you.cjb.net) or buy a domain.  NOT RECOMMENDED!!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try www.portland.co.uk, they give you ad-free hosting including PHP4 and you can also set up a basic free MySQL account (which I'm sure you'll want sooner or later) Pretty sure they give you FTP access too - just don't tell everybody!

if you are willing to take a look under the cushions on your couch, i think you could afford a little step up. cheapwebhost.us offers a little 10MB account for under $7 a year! That's right a year! Not only do you get FTP accounts and PHP, you also get unlimited email accounts a web based control panel, and a mySQL db, along with well, hang on let me paste the features from their site...

here ya go...

- Own CGI Bin
- FrontPage 98/2000/2002
- PHP
- MySQL
- PGP
- SSI
- CRON Jobs
- MIME Types
- SMTP Access
- Mailing Lists
- Web Mail
- SPAM Assassin
- Editable MX Records
- On-demand Backup     - Multiple FTP Accounts
- RAW Access Logs

I have a number of sites with them and I cannot stress enough how great they are with getting back to you with any support or setup questions you may have. I recommend this host to everyone who asks...

Well... Yes... the services on polarhome are pretty good, but the hosting is not too reliable... Their redhat server was down for 1 week and now they have problems with debian server...

Not too encouraging... although they provide lots of stuff...

Polarhome isn't a web host as such, it gives you a complete account on an OS of your choice. So web hosting isn't a priority for them.. I therefore have my reservations about them..

I went with 11Network (http://11.ods.org) and I am totally satisfied with the services and especially with the great support =D

Guys, the question was: List web hosts with no ads of any kind! DON'T list coolfreepages which has popunder or other similar hosting sites!

My advice: 11.ods.org!
Sincerely,
Alex.
