I tell people with a wide smile that I love everything about the internet, the technology in-between, and that I can sit down in front of my computer the whole day - if possible, and not get tired.
I sometimes get enquiries on how to best learn webdesign and webhosting, how can I become a webmaster? how can I setup a test website for myself? these are the usual questions.
Some people are looking for a "sit down and teach me" - classroom and teacher approach. Others are looking for someone to provide them the 1,2,3 list of "how to do everything" - while they unconsiously conclude that just 1-road leads to Rome.
They forget that things are changing every second and technology is a never stopping train.
I have always found out that such a "let me learn everything first" before practicing "the first thing I was taught" - approach is not the best, especially for someone that wants to learn - seriously speaking.
Why not get your hands down and dirty? Invest a little more time, put some steam and energy into learning the ropes. Yes, you will make mistakes; yes, you will get stuck; yes things won't work, but there is always some piece of information, a solution for what you are stuck with on google.com
The following is a list of free webhosting services you can use to set up test sites, see how things are going, learn the ropes, make mistakes at no cost to you and resolve your own issues by yourself.
I am not a marketter of any of the below companies/websites; neither do I give any guarantee that their services will meet your reliability expectations. It is also possible that by the time you are reading this, some of these free services might have closed down.
