Want to put a site up for a week or two.

I just want to put a draft website up for a client for a few days. I have created it locally in a few directories and I want to put it somewhere, preferably for free or a few quid and without signing some year-long contract. I just want to FTP my files in and have done with it. Just HTML and CSS for now. It can expire in a month and can have whatever weird URL it wants. What's the best suggestion?

I don't want ads on it, preferably, and it would be nice if I didn't have to upload everything into a flat directory, i.e. I have /images folders and stuff.

Thank you, hive mind!

000webhost.com is free, ad-free, and pretty straightforward for what you're doing. I've used it for similar purposes with no issues.

Have you looked at NearlyFreeSpeech? It would probably cost you no more than $2-3.

Do you have any other websites? Could you just stick it in a "hidden" area of one, unreachable unless you know the exact URL?

Does your ISP provide limited storage and hosting as part of your service? I've put-up small sites on my ISP-provided share before.

Dropbox is free and works for this if you put the site files in your Public folder.

I'm using Alwaysdata for this kind of stuff, see their free plan.

Just in case anyone else is reading this in the future, StatiCloud is also a free ad-less host for static websites.
