Sorry don't know where else to post it.

Can anyone recommend a web hosting company? I don't want too much memory and maybe want it for a year. Main criteria is the price!

Thanks.

Are you talking of just wanting a web page or something like this?

Free Host with PHP and MySQL (http://www.freehost10.com/)

Yes something like that. Although I don't have any databases or anything like that so I would be using it primarily for showcasing my portfolio of designs as swfs and jpegs.

Would that page there be ok and is it really all free?

I was going to buy my name and surname as a domain as it's only 6 for two years but it doesn't come with any space.

The page recommended by Wolfeymole is completly free unless of course you want to upgrade it.

The free version gives you 5Gb of web space which should be enough for (average) 1500 jpegs and a few raws.

Let me do a quick search for web hosting domains, I will post later.

Edit:
Okay, I've been looking at registering a domain and just like you said the cheapeast I found was 5.94 for 2 years.

However, if you want web hosting then the cheapest I found was 1.59/ per MONTH, this offer only includes 250Mb which is pretty basic. If you are looking at something with more storage then I found 150Gb for 4.55/per MONTH.

Thanks for your help. Yeah 250mb isn't very much. I ight use that free one but I want my own domain. I'll have a look about. Thanks for your help :)
