Yeah, I'd love to know. i just signed up with Go Daddy b/c people around me said it was good. But recently I've seen several free places. What are the pros and cons of this. Should I advise a client to use a free hosting site? Are they big enough or safe enough?

With GoDaddy you should get FREE hosting with a purchase of a domain name.

I too have experienced problem with Go Daddy. It was an issue with FTP. But i can surely recommend it.

Pros and cons?

My ISP gives account holders 20mb of free webspace so it depends on what you want to do. 20mb is enough for my needs but then again you may need to upload way more than that.
