Does anyone have any other suggestions?
My requirements are simple:
Must be free, have FTP access and have no ads.
Thanks for any suggestions.
I checked the site and service atspace.com
provides, and it is quite clear you have misunderstood something.
The free plan is really free, webhosting costs nothing but then you have to use a subdomain i.e. your URL would be Your_Preferred_Subdomain.atspace.eu
(other available top level domains .cc, .co.uk and .tv):
Of course if you need / want your own URL for instance Your_Preferred_Domain.com
, you have to pay the domain registration fees. Every service provider has to pay for domain name registration to a domain name registrar
, so it is only logical they take the cost from you. I do not believe there exists an option to register a domain name for free, at least I have never heard of such.
Simply, if you need your own domain, you need to pay. Hosting you can get for free but not a domain.
is a good place to start searching, I believe you could get a domain name from GoDaddy with a few bucks a year.
When you get the domain name registered, use atspace.com website's control panel to transfer hosting to atspace. The you get what they promised to you: free website hosting.
