Are there any legitimate free hosting sites that will let you upload your own html instead of using their pre-built templates?


  • Free
  • Host your own HTML
  • Does not insert ads or anything to the HTML

Note: 000webhost and freehosting are out; no support whatsoever, can't get files to upload, everything times out, there's nothing redeemable about either of them.

  • Most implementations of cPanel will look the same - it is the same software no matter which host you go to, just potentially different versions of it. – Ken Herbert Jul 17 '14 at 4:11
  • I take some of this back. On freehosting I can get to their file manager, but I can't figure out how to forward my domain to them because I can't figure out the URL to forward it to. 000webhost times out no matter what I do, although it at least tells me the URL to forward to. I don't think Weebly lets you upload html. There's got to be some hosting site as reliable as Weebly that lets you upload html. I just can't find one! – Johnny Bones Jul 17 '14 at 4:25
  • neq3.com? Try that and see if that works. Beware the ad's though. :P~ annoying if you ask me. – Izumi-reiLuLu Jul 17 '14 at 5:15

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about hosting, and not software. – Izzy Jul 17 '14 at 7:15

It depends on how you want to upload HTML and how tech-savvy you are. Here are some options:

  • Thanks! Just curious if you have any personal knowledge of any of these sites, and if you know how much of a hassle to use/how reliable they are? – Johnny Bones Jul 17 '14 at 12:56
  • @JohnnyBones I've personally used all of them other than Paperplane. It'd be helpful to hear how you want to be uploading HTML as none of these provide an FTP connection. Amazon S3/Dropbox will likely be most user friendly. – Mark Silverberg Jul 17 '14 at 13:11
  • @JohnnyBones note I added a new resource link to the Dropbox bullet point – Mark Silverberg Jul 17 '14 at 13:12
  • I just need a place to put a small static html site (maybe 4 pages?) until I can rebuild my old webserver. My HD crashed and one of my friends asked me to help him and doesn't have money to pay a host (long story), so I told him I'd host it as soon as I got my server back up. But in the meantime, I need a place to put it. – Johnny Bones Jul 17 '14 at 13:46
  • I would definitely go with S3 for a combination of resiliency/reliability and features. – Mark Silverberg Jul 17 '14 at 13:53
