Bebo would be ok for that. It can be set for public or private.

A social networking site which I use to host family photographs. Flicker does the same thing I think?

I think the idea is to find free or pay as little as possible . So $35 is a pretty good deal .

How about Geo Cities?

Dont get a lot of space but if your not uploading big files should be ok .

$35 - is that per year? If so this free web space is more expensive that many paid suppliers.

http://www.compila.com give you a free domain name with your hosting for 12 + vat per year, minimum two years up front = 27.60 for two years. Which is a bit less than $35 a year

I use them for many of my clients and get great service from them.

I always find it amusing when someone is designing a web site for someone else, and then has to ask about web hosting - have they designed any sites before?

Here are a few free hosts (I hate those "here" or "clicky" links, I like to be able to read the full url)




http://www.freevirtualservers.com/ (I've used them once for a one page site someone wanted, seemed okay, just the cost of a domain name and we sprung into action)

Try this last named one.
