sheppola Hi mate, I've just found the thread, I'd started it as a tips thread but like most of my tips ones I only keep adding to them if it generates interest and responses so it's sat dormant for a while and some of the links are dead, I can refresh it if there's any interest but in the meantime here's a link to the thread Create A Simple Website For Free and to save you having to read through it, the free hosting I mentioned that's turned off for an hour a day instead of carrying ads can be found here I've not used it for a while but the last time I was using it I had no issues at all. It's run by Hostinger which is not free. I use a different provider for my websites.
I should stress none of these are affiliates links so I'm not receiving anything in return for posting them 🙂
Let me know if that's any help and if I can help you out at all.
