I'm not an expert at this stuff but I'm trying to build a website for someone and I need a place to put it online. doesn't have to be too fancy. I just need control over the file structure and stuff. I was going to use Google Sites but it doesn't let you upload any code.

I haven't made a website in years like since geocities was a thing. What do people use now?

Go Daddy is the popular choice, I think. I haven't used them personally, but they have commercials with beautiful women in them during the Super Bowl so they must be awesome.

I thought they just registered domains. It's not a web hosting service, as far as I know, so I don't think that's what you're looking for.

I use WestHost, which might be a bit too expensive for what you want. Either way, whatever you pick, google "<webhostingsitename> coupons", and you can net yourself up to 50% off your package.

I'm pretty sure they do. I was comparing prices for a web site I was working on and that was one of the extra services they provided. Domain registration is there main focus, though.

No, they do hosting as well, but I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. They're a sleazy company with terrible service. Also they supported SOPA. A Small Orange is a great hosting service, but it's not free.

I know people using Dreamhost. Nice laid back company but not free. Does it actually exist free hosting services? They must be drenched in ads.

Another recommendation for A Small Orange here, whilst not free they're still pretty cheap.
