Firstly, I want to know about the pitfalls of free hosting. I once read that sometimes hosting providers take over the domain of a successful project, i.e. take away. Maybe there are other difficulties? This is the first question.

The second one: I'd like to create a simple website, without forums, CGI, PHP engines and other things.
Enough HTTP. Visitors - 50 per day, 50 MB on disk. In general, the minimum possible.
The main thing is that everything is in Korean, there are no technical problems, preferably with adequate technical support and that there is no cheating (for example, cheating with domain name removal).


Free hosting services under the condition of embedding advertising should not be considered at all. You will not give personal data, but in return they will run ads on your site (possibly with viruses), and break the page layout.

Although there is an opinion that free hosting providers are good for preserving useful information. Sites with it continue to be available, even when the author forgot about them.

Personally, about three two ago, the main problems of a hosting company were free domains and panels that worked every once in a while. With today's ridiculous prices for hosting providers, I don't see the point in it.


I don't see the point in free hosting providers either. One fake banner per page is enough to screw up your whole site. Perhaps they will be useful to some beginners for "training" in web design and HTML. As for the fact that successful projects are "taken away", these are most likely "urban legends". Deceived users can create very good anti-advertising for such a provider, and this is where its story ends.


You can try Heroku, it supports not only Python, but it has a minus from free databases, it only has PostgreSQL and there is a very small volume.
The deployment is done on it, either using GitHub, or with their own Git module. Also on heroku, if the application has no activity for 20 minutes, it "falls asleep", but does not turn off.

Or PythonAnywhere, it supports both MySQL and PostgreSQL, and it's less hassle with deployment. But there is a limit on the number of processor seconds.
