it depends...you probably already have one place...your isp provides a SMALL
amount of space for you to host a site. there's no expense other than your
monthly connection fee that you're already paying.
then there's your own computer. you can go to a dynamic dns host, like
dyndns.org and redirect stuff to you home pc BUT you run the risk of
attracting people into your home pc and that could be a problem with hacks
and what have you. that's not even mentioning bandwidth. if you have a cable
modem like me, you've got about 384kbps or less to play with. that sounds
like a lot but if you include you own surfing, three or more people
accessing the same content, then you have a bottleneck.
then there's the free host services. ah yes...tripod/geocities/angelfire and
countless others but be forewarned...NOTHING is free. there are popups,
there are also other places that provide free hosting but they are hit and
miss with service.
of the three choices...for static pages, your isp is your best bet because
there you don't have to worry about ads. you don't have to worry about much.
but you aren't allowed to roll your own cgi/perl/php/asp scripts. and forget
databases. that kinda thing is right out the window.
and if you just want to pay for a site with full access...drop me an email
off list. i can hook you up. i provide hosting services to many of my
consulting clients and have some room to spare.
hope this helps you! good luck!
