'"what can I get for nothing?" '

Your putting words in my mouth. Misinterpreting what I'm saying.

Some of the free webhosting site give you a chance to see what it's like before you commit to a paid plan.

Neocities has free webhosting with no ads. That was hard to find.

The commercial free hosting has ads. I don't think too many people want a permanent website with ads.

Okay.In conclusion. Free hosting without ads is a good thing to look for.

I'll close with, "You get what you pay for." Good luck.

Your last sentence may have been mistyped?
I may be doing you a disservice though, do you mean that hosting using open source and other software-freedom software are good to look for?

Edit: Free image hosting!!! all you can use!!!

'Your last sentence may have been mistyped?'

No. 'Ads' is actually a field in website comparison in this article.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_web_hosting_service

See 'Comparisons' down the bottom of article.

Wikipedia and Google are what I meant instead of Open Source.

Freedom on Internet or whatever you want to call it.

Anyhow a guide like this article helps. It classifies levels of web hosting.

Now blogs are in the picture so it takes some sorting out.

Happy 4th of July!

Sorry, I still don't understand.
As far as I am concerned web hosting should be paid for in money or by other means but that is nothing to do with whether it is open source or not.
Free as in "costs nothing" hosting means either you're pushiong pointless adverts or you're freeloading off the kindness of others. Hosting a website is not free of monetary cost.

It is solved. Don't worry about it.

Forget the 'Open Source' label.

Who knows how Neocities pays for the webhosting. Maybe there are not that many takers so the cost isn't that much.

'"Designed as a 21st century reincarnation of GeoCities, ' Apparently Geocities was a big deal.

I am not real into this area of tech so. Looks good to me and that's all I'm going to be concerned about.

https://neocities.org/ They explain what's going on right on their front page.

'We publish the code that powers the site for inspection. We want to win your trust—not lock you in.'

How about that! Looks like they are Open Source anyhow.

Still not exactly what I meant but good enough.

What I was saying is kind of a nebulous concept. Hard to quantify.

Yeah, who cares as long as you're not, eh?
Just don't be surprised when your website just disappears or they start charging for something you use like Photobucket has done to people(I linked above but it wasn't obvious).
Still, the world owes you doesn't it.
