Most Open Source Free Web Hosting Site


Figured out users here would be up on this kind of thing.

Which free website hosting site is the most open source like one?

Also have simple to use web page builder.

Registered at Github. I just don't get it at all.

Not very intuitive.

This Wikipedia article is hardly conclusive, but it may be a good place to start:

Free web hosting sites don't give much control over the server. You use their tools.

Thank you both.

Ended up at Wordpress.com. Note the .com at end.

It's free. Seems harmless so far.

I understand I can use Wordpress by itself.(I used to use it.Just fumbled around with it, but it's something)

What is a good $2.99 a month web hosting outfit where they have been around a long time.

Or is that going to cost more?

Pick up a VPS for $3.50/Month and run whatever OpenSource you want. https://www.ovh.com/us/vps/vps-ssd.xml

Sarcasm online is often lost without an indicative emoticon

Sarcasm and jokes are nullified if you explain them!

I was not attacking the poster, just the thought of everyone being allowed to edit a web site.
