Have you ever tried to use free hosting? How was your experience?
I haven't used free hosting for years. I rarely find free hosts that aren't sketchy in some way, and I wouldn't want to entrust my data to them.
Everyone starts with free hosting. That is where we learn the basics.
I was given some space by someone I know from the internet. That I how I started my first blog. It is not free hosting as it would actually mean but free in terms of cost.
