I'm also looking for a restaurant that you can eat for free, if the service is great I'll pay for it. Does anyone know of a good free restaurant?

Denny's, on your birthday? YMMV.

Funny how so many photographers belly ache about craigslist or people not wanting to pay for photography, and then you see posts like this.

Are you guys for real? There is nothing wrong with looking for a free site with ads on it to build and get the bugs worked out of your site before going live on a high end pay site.

@n0w0rries No belly aching here. Ever hear of radio? it is a free service that is funded by commercials. I see nothing wrong with building on a free site with ads and when I am happy move to a pay site.

Never expected the negative response form a simple question.

If you're just testing why do you need it on the internet? Just install apache on your own computer. Or if it's a PHP site use WAMP (windows) or MAMP (mac).

The reason for not having a free site with ads is two fold:
- it's not very professional, having big flashing ads on your website
- some less reputable ad servers are full of spyware and trojans

Your friends can connect to your PC for the test, you just have to leave it turned on, and maybe set up port forwarding from your router.

I hate commercials. I use chrome with adblock. I listen to www.radioparadise.com (external link) (it's listener supported radio and yes I support them)

If you see what you can do with a hostgator account for $4/mo, and still think your idea has no flaws, well, I don't really have anything else to say.

It's unfortunate how frustrated you are at the truth. When your website is on the internet, it is public unless you intend to lock it and password protect the site etc.

You do NOT test a website on a platform that will inject their own layout and code into your own. How would you design the optimal layout? How would you know if the injected code is not screwing up yours?

To test a website while you build it, you do it offline. Install Apache and PHP and you're good to go. If you don't know how to do that simply download XAMPP (external link) that will install the components for you. Then simply drop your website into the specified folder and visit http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost/ and preview your website.

So the benefit of the hosting company hosting your ad free site for free is what again?

+1 You need to test the final product.

There's nothing high end about hosting. It's just a parking space.

The problem with your radio reference is you won't be able to control the ads that are displayed the way the radio station can determine whose spots it plays. They might put your competition there, or something inappropriate.

if you really want free hosting but als AD FREE and you are 'technical', you can set up your own server...

- Get Static IP (or use http://dnsexit.com/ (external link) for dynamic dns hosting) - FREE
- Install your web hosting stuff, you can use WampServer http://www.wampserver.​com/en/ (external link) - FREE
- Set up your domain name, etc, etc (NOT FREE, about $8 for a domain free but .TK is still free I think)
- Install your web app of your choice... Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc, etc (ALL FREE)

You can have your own Server in less than a day, really :)

...what he said...

Are you technically inclined? If so, you can (for free) download VMware player, a linux OS image, and get your website up & running using a LAMP stack (linux, apache, mysql, php) on a VM (which won't affect your current system or require a new one) and completely testable right on your machine. Get it just right, then upload to your host of choice when you are ready to pay.

If this is too technical for you, then, well... you may need to pay $5/mo. I've always liked Site5 ( http://www.site5.com/ (external link) ) . they have a 30 day free trial.

Check out www.awardspace.com (external link) -- I've heard you can get free hosting here, but I haven't checked myself.
