Default website hosting recommendation?

My current website host, switched to a paid model. My website is still there, but it is something I cannot back up, and is still viewable when not experiancing down time. My website is at freewebtown, I was hoping there's maybe a better place, for free, with 1 gb storage and more reliable, and I can easily upload my older back up files. Any recommendations? I don't wanna pay, it's a website that's not fetching money so don't wanna pay for it, at all.

Can you do a search and replace with your text editor?

Find: oldserver.com
Replace with: newserver.com

You should be able to go to your start page and download it to your HDD including all sub levels (linked pages). Then edit in place on your HDD and upload to your new site.

I use Firefox, so just make sure you go to the root file (index.html or whatever) open it in your browser. Right click on the page and select "save as", browse to a suitable (empty) folder, make sure to select "complete" which is all HTML, pictures etc then save it.

Close the browser, go to the folder you stored the file in and double click on the root file (index.html or whatever). The page should open in a new browser, but now you are looking at the copy on your HDD instead of your server.

If you use FTP to move the same web data to your new server, it "should" correct the address of all of the pages, but I don't think it will "fix" any links embedded in the pages. You may have to fix those.

Default try "blogger"

It's my understanding one can use blogger.com to create web pages with, either a website and/or a store; and it's free. Might want to check on it.
