Before you can share your website, you need some place on the
internet to place it. I've used various free web hosts over the years
and a few paid hosts. At the moment, my preference for a free host is https://byet.host/.
They do not put ads on your site, but you can, if you want. They give
enough storage room and allow enough bandwidth, etc. for most static
websites. I have had very little problems with them as a host. The
instructions below take you through the steps to set up an account.
Opening an account
Go to https://byet.host/. In the top menu, hover over "Free Hosting" and then click on "Sign up for Free Hosting."
Filling in InformationHere are a few tips:
Saving Website Information
A new page will appear with information about your website account including your website address, links to control panel and username they assign. Your information will take the place of the red x's in the image. You may or may not be on byethost7. The username will be the same for the Control panel, MySQL and FTP. Be sure to copy and paste the information in a plain text file and save it in your website folder or place of your choice. You will need the information later.
