Free web host advice needed

When I needed a place to store my website, I thought it would be easy to find free web space online. It was more difficult than I imagined, but I finally found www.awardspace.net and made my site. I had the option of choosing a subdomain, and the most relevant one was mygamesonline.org.
The problem I encountered was when I tried to link to my site on Facebook. This is what it says when I try to post:
The content you're trying to share includes a link that's been blocked for being spammy or unsafe:
I got around this by linking to my site on my MySpace and my Xanga, and then just posting those links on Facebook instead. A bit of a hassle, but still reachable.
I didn't think of it again until my McAfee software detected a potential problem, and it was mygamesonline.org. What is going on? Why do Facebook and McAfee think that subdomain is malicious? Where else can I host my site files for free on a site that is trusted?
Thanks for helping.
