    I'm just 'playing' with my Recipes idea. I don't expect any serious traffic; just for my own use and probably my daughter. I do plan on having lots of content. Eventually I have an idea to expand this web site (I have tons of free time) to include my quilting hobby, gardening, and socializing with my friends ( sharing pictures, etc.).

    Can we start a list of best free web hosts? Please include any known limitations (i.e. Pros and Cons).

    Thank you for the review page. I also have an article that might help you decide which host is the best one and qualified for your needs.
    Choosing the right web host is a difficult decision might want to do some research beforehand and read this.

    To start a website or for a beginner, buying the domain name, then using a free host might be the best option. By owning the domain name, they can move without changing the name and losing traffic. After building traffic and reputation, they can get a paid account. The best free account is the one that offers support (which beginners need a lot of). Support will either come from the provider or a forum. Usually free accounts have support in the form of a forum, which takes time for a reply (price you pay for free).
    For a free account, check to see the support they have and if a forum, check to see the time to get a response. Also check to see the quality of the response.
    hope this helps
