    For simple stuff, seeing as you've got an android phone, you've got a Google account - and Google does provide limited free hosting on their own. Works with both regular Google accounts as well as Google Apps.

    I don't use much else b/c, well, a very good friend of mine is a web developer :D

    Before I met my good friend who hosts my site for me now, I used 000webhost.com

    It was pretty good, but being free, you couldn't quite do everything a normal web host would be able to do.

    Keep in mind that you still need to buy your domain, obviously.

    Uh, actually....

    https://sites.google.com/

    I have a very basic page I started with my account for simple Android related stuff that I want to get into developing once I am done with my Masters.

    Google Apps is different from Sites, although Google App accounts also incorporate a slightly more robust version of sites. I have 4 domains running through Google Apps.

    I wouldn't even consider Google Sites to be "hosting" as there's no custom HTML allowed. You have to use their disgusting, generic layouts.


    OP: As I said, try out 000webhost. It's free, you just have to pay for the domain.

    edit-
    If you end up doing that, contact me and I'll help you get set up with Google Apps so you can have up to 10 email addresses for your domain.

    Webs is the one I used. Obviously since it's free, you can't do EVERYTHING, but it has all the basics for a begginer's website e.g. Title, Text, Videos, Pictures, Forms and more.

    Nothing is free.

    Even the cheapest paid hosting will give you everything you need.

    Things have changed drastically since then.

    Free stuff isn't the best stuff, that hasn't changed since. All free hostings I was using were rubbish. I can't even recommend it even for beginners or just fooling around because you probably gonna lose your site. But what really changed is the number of useful tools you can get. For example, I'm hosting my site at (link removed by moderator) , I spent hundreds of hours developing it. That's obvious that I want to be sure it won't be stolen from me. Free services don't provide any security means really.
