I'd like to find a web host that is cheap and simple. If I go with something like GoDaddy, I get a lot of storage space, bandwidth, and mysql/php support, but I don't need all of this. I probably only need up to 1 GB of storage and 100-200 MB of bandwidth/month. Just file hosting, no services. I don't even care if it's 100% reliable.

I know a domain might cost around $10/year, but then I would like to be able to find a simple host for maybe $1/month or less. Has anyone used a place offering this?

Or is there even anywhere for free? I would like to be able to upload things quickly.

For smaller websites, godaddy is just fine. What type of site are you making? There's many high quality free options out there - such as google sites or wordpress.com, depending on what type of content you have. Whatever you do, make sure you go with a host that either comes with a recommendation from someone you trust, or is a well known name in the industry (MT, godaddy, yahoo, etc.) - there's lots and lots of low-quality or downright fraudulent hosts out there.
