To find the web hosting that suits your needs, you need to define criteria based on your site. Indeed, all web hosts do not provide the same benefits, and it would be pointless to pay a sophisticated web hosting if your website has only a few static web pages in plain HTML (no PHP, MySQL, ASP, etc ...). Very good free web hosts perform these functions very well.
