A free web host is the most cost-less way of hosting. Doesn't mean you will get quality but that is the most honest answer to your question .

For most cost effective way of web hosting then a shared package (which can be as low as $3 - $4 per month including a free domain in some cases such as ours) would be best.

Remember a companies costs up as they grow - significantly. You want a company that can support that growth and in most cases a free provider can't.

A shared hosting and a cheap unmanaged VPS hosting are some other cost-less ways to hosting your requirements.

Probably FREE. There are still several places that do this, though you usually have advertising all over the web site, but it's "cost-less".

The actual question is - are there any ways to receive a good hosting service without paying for it?

The answer is - ask for a sponsorship, offer something of mutual benefit to a hosting company... Sometimes spreading the word of hosting provider's generosity amongst 20k+ of your Twitter followers is much more valuable than $10 you would pay for that hosting package.

Or go for a free crap like free hosting mentioned above.

A good cost-less way of web hosting? Join a web host affiliate program and refer as little as 1 client to the web host and use the commissions to pay for hosting.

For example, our affiliate program. Tier 1 gives $70 per sale, tier 4 gives $135 per sale.

Throw in a 25% life discount and you got yourself 2 years worth of web hosting and a free domain from that single affiliate sale (on tier 1). 1 year without a discount code.

Pretty easy and well worth it

Free hosting is the best one for your needs, the OP.

It is important to sign up for a web hosting company that provides with good customer service. I don't think a free web hosting service will provide with good customer service and server maintenance.

A free host can be cost-less and still provide top notch services but the main thing it comes down to is that provider going to be able to provide such service for cox amount of time. Most times with free hosts it's just a matter of time of either them giving up or being shut down from not being able to pay bills.

Free host is not reliable IMHO, it's better to use a low cost one.

Costs deal with a lot more than money. What does a free or "cheap" host cost you when it offers poor quality? Is that cost an affordable one? In other words can you afford the consequences of poor quality?

Don't got with a free host. You'd rather want to spend a little bit on paid hosting as that will pay you back in uptime and support reliability.
