There is a lot of free website hosting for students available. I recommend this for school projects. If you are going to build a website to turn into your business, I suggest you use Solo Build It. At least take make a comparison of the webhosts offerings and price compared to other hosts after the free period. For many that period is 1 year.
Here are some free webhost
Many others but I these are the ones that I actually checked out.
Please note that some of these companies will take a while to actually get you set up with your account. We are talking days. For some free student hosting accounts all you need is an email with a .edu extension. For other free student website hosting services you need a credit card.
I used www.studentwebhosting.com. Well actually I signed up for several and they were the quickest to respond.
