ok here are how SOME free hosts do it - follow closely

Free hosting make money on adsense, adbrite or other advertising.

with free accounts they know that phising sites will get onto their servers.

when a phising site set up they catch it (BUT DO NOT SHUT IT DOWN) - they wait for traffic to start to hit the server .........

once the traffic hists the server ..... they redirect that traffic to a landing page full of click through ads
and BANG!! - lots of profit from advertising and capturing revenue from illegal activity in which they stoped!

i know one who earned thousands of dollars a month from this method

I haven't heard of this one. I like the creative solution, but it doesn't make it right to support techniques that might damage a lot of people's well being, even if temporarily.

With so many free hosts, what are the things that we should check to know that they will stay for a long time. And with free hosting, is there a possibility that I could select the advertisements that could be placed in my website? Because I don't like banners like "You are the 999,999th visitor!" and ads that have viruses or malwares attached on the advertised sites.

Yes most make money from advertising and upgrades to remove the ads but profit doesn't always have to be cash. Gaining a few thousand customers has a worth of its own! In a market so saturated with hosts you have a good grounding to build on, even if they aren't paying a dime.

Advertisements and Spamming people.

I hosted a free host, kicked them off because of the spamming. They refused to stop saying it was thier right and a freedom of speech.

I told them it was my freedom of pipe, and they were not using it anymore, seeya.

They tried to take us to court, and lost in pre-trial.... We got one hell of a counter though, still have not seen a dime.....

The advertisements they put on people's websites. Some just pay out of their own pocket and use their free clients as a way to advertise their services.
