Not needed features: mysql, php or similar server side scripting.
There are of course many commercial webhosts. But are there any reliable free (or almost free) services around similar to Googlepages
(Google Page Creator)?
I've glanced at Amazon's S3
. If I understand their prices then hosting a small site with very modest monthly data transfer would be very inexpensive. But I've also read claims on blogs that S3 can't autoload index.html and various other skeptical posts. However I find no clear info on the official S3 site regarding the index.html issue. So maybe it does work now. Or there might be some smart way around it. So I ask:
question 1: can S3 satisfy the requirements above?
I here hope for feedback from people with experience of S3, maybe even as a html web hosting solution.
question 2: if S3 doesn't satisfy the requirements above then suggest some other interesting free/almost free alternative that does.
