In Search of Free Web Hosting

Nov 3, 2011 by QR | Tags web_hosting

It been awhile since I last wrote, but something got me wondering. What if you want to start with a self-hosted Wordpress blog, but at the same time don't want to spend a dime on web hosting. Are there viable offers out there? Or is it mission impossible?

In the weeks ahead I'll try to find a couple of good free web hosts that are good enough (PHP, MySQL) to host a Wordpress blog. Let's see if I can come up with something.
