    www.brinkster.com they have adds, not pop-ups atleast not on my accounts. They usually just have a small line of text that says "web hosting by brinkster" and I mean its tiny, hardly noticeable. Sometimes they do have a small banner at the top of pages, but its not a pop-up. If you need a site builder they have one, but its not very good. If you just do html you should be ok.

    The free accounts are kind of hard to find on their page, but when you go there look for the educational package, its the free one.

    a web page I have with them is this www.outubas.cjb.net, those are the adds they put on mine and we have an educational package. the cjb.net add is because of the url redirection I use.

    You know there are also extremely low cost monthly hosting plans out there that you may want to look into. I use Dreamhost and love them.

    Dreamhost was running a special for about $9~ for a year of their hosting. Although not free, it works out to something like 2.5 cents a day? I bet you blow that without even thinking about it.

    I think you mean $9.95 per month, not year. And if you don't pre-pay for the year then you have to pay a one-time setup fee of $49.95 right away.
