About free web hosting services
A free web hosting service is a web hosting service that is free, usually advertisement-supported. Free web hosts will usually provide asubdomain (yoursite.example.com) or a directory (www.example.com/~yourname). In contrast, paid web hosts will usually provide a second-level domain along with the hosting (www.yourname.com). Many free hosts do allow use of separately-purchased domains. Rarely, a free host may also operate as a domain name registrar. There are also some free domain companies which may provide free 3rd level domain names free with dns and other facilities.
