I am not just looking for a blog host. It was to be a website host that can host a blog or something like it

I have used webs.com, and 000webhost.com. webs.com is just for starters, 000webhost, its better you can actually upload wordpress to it ^^

Get in contact with me and I can give you some space on my server and I'll set up the blog for you. Or you could use http://000webhost.com/ or http://zymic.com/

Now days a lot of ISP offer free web space too. You might consider checking into that if one of the above solutions didn't work out for you.

Blogger is the only one I know of that's free. It's actually pretty decent, too.

I'm afraid I do not personally know of any contemporary free website hosting providers. I got my start in web development when a local ISP wanted a small site to help drive traffic to their hosting company; in exchange for generating traffic to their company, I received free web space. This is prior to **Geocities.com** (1994), which if you don't know, went offline in the past 12 or 24 months.

These days, there may still be some free web hosts like Geocities.com, but I'm not aware of them.

There are some ways to obtain web space but they don't really count as "free" because the web space is thrown is as part of some other service you're paying for -- like MobileMe or being a student at a university.

I hope you have your firewall and virus protection fully configured and up-to-date, and keep them that way.

I'm currently using a free version of a virus protection, but I keep them both updated. So far I don't have much on there, if I get serious about putting anything on there I will look further into investing some money for some protection. But for some reason my home network has just become extremely slow.

The BEST by far is Webs.com (was freewebs.com) I use this for my dog Khan's website (yes, my dog has a website too) www.MyBowl.net check it out. Webs has lots of templates and forms with no coding required. And, it is free. I also use Webs.com for our neighborhood's website (www.NorthWestLimaWoods.org) too. Also, I like and use Microsoft Live free web hosting (Yes, it's the M word) check out Techeads.org its hosted by Microsoft Live and their templates are easy to use too. For both of the above I purchased the domains at DomainsAndWebsites.net and forwarded to Webs.com and Microsoft so I didn't have to pay $35 per year for the domain names.

No, Webs is not the best. They are good for beginners but as you get better at coding you will hate them. The websites made by their templates are unprofessional, you don't get to write any code what so ever. If someone who knows comes along they will look at it and go "think person must not know much about computers because they're using Webs." Use 000webhost then download Wordpress and install it on the free server. This will make your site look way more professional (there is thousands of themes to choose from) plus there is no ads. You can taylor the website to your liking without ads.
