Webmasters Best Friends

I would like to draw your attention to two websites, both operating great services
Yeah, its true. Not every user uses the same browser as you (the webmaster)
This service allows you to see what your website looks like on other browsers. This is great for finding errors, since some sites are simply incapable of handling on certain browsers, especially less common used browsers, like Safari (for the MacOS)

This website is for the web designers out there who are not very creative (like myself) who want to have a good looking site, but just don't know how to create one.
With this, you don't have to worry about excessive advertisements.

Free Website Hosters
There is no such thing as a free domain name, but there are sub domains (eg: yoursitetitle.sitehost.com)
Firstly, one great thing to match a subdomain with is a shorter, but free, domain service, like co.nr
Check co.nr out at www.co.nr domain. They will provide you with a free www.yoursite.co.nr domain.
Also available for domains: www.dot.tk (also contains ads)

Comes with an application to install some web applications. 110MB no longer supports MySQL on box4/5/9/10. If you want to run any web applications, you will have to use an alternative, such as YaBB for a forum.
(Users do not need ads)

Features: 1500MB of disk space, 100GB of bandwidth, cPanel, no ads, PHP, MySQL, FTP, Cron Jobs, GD POP3 Email Accounts with webmail, phpMyAdmin
Full List of Features: http://www.000webhost.com/features
