Free webhosts

  • # April 7, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Is it true that some free webhost sites do not support certain files? I’m currently using and the files saved as .css and .js are not recognised. They don’t seem to work for my pages as long as they are linked as external files. Can someone help me? Perhaps recommend a free webhost site that will support those particular files? It’s difficult for me to figure out/test those codes if they do not appear. I’m such an amateur… D:

    Nothing is free and if it is, it’s crap. Regular web hosting is dirt cheap, just part with a few bucks!

    Ah, I see.. xD

    Do you have any web hosting recommendations?

    Really? I used webs years ago and they supported JavaScript and CSS files, just not PHP.

    Am I doing something wrong? O_o

    I would create the CSS file in my dreamweaver program then upload it to webs. I’ve also tried creating a new file on webs as a .html and renaming it to a .css. Using it as a external file would never work, but it works fine as an internal style sheet.

    I’ve read mixed reviews with many web hosting companies, but even with NO web building experience, I’ve managed to build (still in progress) a decent structure for my site. I use Green Geeks which uses CPanel. Check out my site at . I’m open to any suggestions too!:)

    What do you mean it wouldn’t work as an external file?

    Just don’t trust free hosting.

    Now don’t ask me why I use it. :P is good since it supports PHP and two MySQL databases. They’ll review your site the first time you use it, and then I don’t know if they do it again, but they probably do. The CSS and JS works fine. Don’t ask me why it doesn’t work for you. is used by many of my friends, but one of them (the most techie of them) moved out of it to Don’t ask me why, but he said it gets a little edgey sometimes. I also happen to know they review sites more often, aka more downtime. I’ve never used it.

    Just a review on the ones I know about!

    bcintegrity1: Thanks! Your site looks wonderful!

    ChristopherBurton: Whoops, I meant as a external stylesheet, by using this code:

    knittingfrenzy18 But why do you use it? J/K! lol

    Thanks for sharing! :D

    Perhaps you’re not linking to it correctly?

    Hmm, but it’s worked for me before (when I had a webhost I was paying for). The actual .css file doesn’t seem to be working/recognised, which why I think the webhost doesn’t support .css and .js as an external stylesheet. :{
