    Hello,
    I have been trying for the past week to publish a website using FTP. I have a great piece of software to publish it, but no FTp space, as AOL (my ISP) has shut theirs down. I have been browsing google for ages with no luck, so does anyone know if it is possible to obtain FREE ftp space to publish an iWeb website to, and if so, how and what...? Any help would be great, and I hope to hear from you:confused:

    There are several places that offer free site hosting with various limitations due to them being free. The most common problem with free sites is the inclusion of random advertisements, but other limitations include limited filespace, limited bandwidth usage and other problems.

    With premium webhosts offering fine low cost paid site hosting so reasonably these days, you really have to ask yourself if you want your site to look like it is posted on a free site (particularly in the case of the random ads pasted in by the host- cheesy at best) or whether you want it to look professional by just paying a small fee. Excellent hosts like A Small Orange offer full service hosting from as little as $25 a year (with two extra free months if you pay the full year at once) or HostGator from $4.95 a month.

    If you really want to go with free hosting, Google will reveal plenty of them with a search on "free web hosting" and such. Your choice- you get what you pay for.;)
