Free Web Hosting
There are so many web hosting companies out there today that there is really no need to buy your own servers. Managed hosting is very cheap these days. Most free web hosts offer some sort of template website that you can make limited changes to and the bandwidth is very limited. Old style sites from Geocities etc. allowed you to create a free website and host if for free. The problem was that you had to show ads on your site that could take your traffic away and send it to advertisers that you can't monetize on.
The free web hosts are good for personal pages and non commercial websites. There are many types of hosting available to website owners. Unix and linux hosting, Windows, ASP and .NET, Dedicated, Reseller hosting, and of course e-commerce hosting on secure servers.
