Free hosting with FTP
At FreeHostia you get a free hosting plan with FTP support, no ads and no hidden fees. At your web hosting control panel you can setup FTP accounts and you can define the level of access, which each FTP account would have. So if you want to give a friend access only to a certain area (folder) you can do this easily through the user-friendly web interface of your web hosting control panel.
More than just web space
You do not simply get web space for your web site but you also get the tools necessary to successfully build and manage your web site(s). Besides FTP access, you also get an intuitive online file manager integrated within your web hosting control panel. With the online file manager you can perform any file operations that are otherwise available via FTP but there are also additional options such as extracting an archive and a visual (WYSIWYG) editor for HTML files.
Another very useful tool is the 1-click installer, which you can use to install web applications directly from within your web hosting control panel without having to upload the files via FTP. The installation is done through the web interface of the 1-click installer and it really takes less than five minutes. Most of the popular free PHP scripts are available – Joomla, Wordpress, phpBB, XOOPS, Drupal, 4images, etc.
