I need a recommendation for a non-intrusive, straight-forward, website host.
Recently, my ISP (Verizon) disallowed FTP to their server. Since then, I have tried several free website hosts... none of them with 100% satisfaction. [Note: I located some of them at: http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-web-hosting.php
Most recently, I came across a host site (http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-web-hosting.php
) that was straight-forward in setting up. However, this site adds their ad at the bottom (see attached JPG which contains two snapshots of my site).
Ideally, the following requirements should be met:
1. As I have a domain (i.e., "Gripper" or "Forwarding Service" for URL), I just need a site to host my files (< 30 MB).
2. Preferably, the host site is free of charges... and will NOT add their own advertising banners ("Host your site for FREE with No Ads") at the bottom of my pages.
3. Also, based on the site http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-web-hosting.php
, I realized that many of them were UK-based hosts. From my perspective, none of those recommended site were easy and straight-forward to use. So, ideally, I'd like the site to be provided by a US-based company. [Not necessarily a hard requirement though].
Could someone please provide me a few recommendations for a "decent" webhost?
