    Looking for New Hosting

    Hey guys, new here.

    I've been using webs/freewebs for years and now they no longer allow HTML only mode. I need to make a new website and am looking for (pref. free or trial so I can at least test it out before I buy if possible) another alternative that offers a site manager for html.

    I'd rather not have any FTP, MySQL, or pre-made templates/builders... just a host that has a file manager similar to that of what webs and geocities once had.

    I'd really appreciate any help.

    I know they offer something, but I'm not sure how it works or how well since I haven't used a website builder since 1996 when I first learned how to build a web page and that was all the university web servers allowed me to do at the time. So I'm not saying it's good or bad. I'm just saying it's there as an option.

    https://www.sectorlink.com/cloudhosting.php

    It's got a 30-day money back guarantee, so there's your effective "free trial".

    What kind of site is this for?

    There's a lot of criticism of 1and1 and some of it's probably justified. You're as big as they are and you're around as long as they have been, you're bound to have screwed up with some customers. It happens.

    Here's what I've found about them...they're "not bad". If anything ever happens to Sectorlink, they would serve as a Plan B for me. The support is decent and I haven't noticed any significant issues with downtime, misconfigurations, etc. They also haven't done anything stupid like losing an SQL server database. I'd consider them an "acceptable" choice.

    Most Web hosting companies (if not all) have website builders.
    If you want to use your own HTML then even better... hosting can be really cheap. I canīt find a reason to use a free hosting (which usually entails something to benefit them).

    Maybe i am missing something... here...

    If you just want stuff up, I've seen some people using their Google Drive as a webhost for static/html sites. Then they purchase a domain for $1-$15/year and have it forward to their respective site index.html in their Google Drive.

    THe other method is to use a blog system like wordpress.com or tumblr.com. Free.

    PS, Geocities sucked :P.
