    I'm thinking about making a website for my stuff. I don't need anything extravagant or provides a lot of features. Maybe at some point if I need more, I'll look into websites that that offer more (at a price), but for now, I'm looking for something.....free, to get me started, though the ability to play Youtube videos would be nice.

    Any particular free web hosts I should look into?

    I'm not sure what stuff refers to but for the time being would tumblr or http://www.webs.com/ suffice? I would've suggested blogger but I don't know how that is these days.

    Ew. Webs.com is terrible if you want to be serious at all. The other two aren't exactly web hosts. I've been running a blog on x10hosting.com for the past 4 or so years and they've been pretty decent.

    Do not use 000webhost. They deleted my website twice, and they didn't reply back to my emails, thank god I had backups.
    Zymic so far is amazing, used them for a year, and no problems.

    Well, there had to be a reason why they deleted your site. Ever thought about that? ;)
    I've been with 000webhost since 2008 and never had any problem with them.

    Ì've e-mailed them, I never broke any rules. It was a basic blog, just checked the website now, it's up but I can't access the FTP for it when I log in, says access denied.

    There's a big difference between "they deleted my site" and "I forgot my FTP password"!

    No, the actual website was shut down.
