    000webhost has deleted my free hosting because they thought I was inactive. Everything gone. Thanks so much.
    Anyway, I am now looking for a very very very cheap host. I only need something like 50MB and a limited bandwidth. I don't trust free plans anymore. Is there anything that costs less than 15$ per year?

    You can use the shared folder of dropbox if your site is simple enough.

    Why not get a One Drive account? 10GB free, can't really beat that

    Nothing much complex. Just a HTML template with some list of the projects I've done/am doing.

    I can use those as web host? O.o

    I don't see why not, there's a public folder where if you wanted to share something you could just drop it in there. I'd say yes ^_^

    Dropbox as suggested.
    Other cheapest hosting would be to port forward one of your ports and host it yourself.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    in the past there was a tool using dropbox API in wich dropbox worked like a seedbox, it downloaded torrents directly to your dropbox without using your computer

    so pretty sure you can use dropbox for lots of stuff

    You were using free hosting and did not have a backup?
    And I thought I lived dangerously when it came to backups and ability to restore things.

    My usual suggestions for cheap hosting are those $90 for 3 years kind of hosts. They usually work for as many domains as you can stick on there so they tend to pay for themselves if you just throw up a few "here I am, this is my business and a couple of photos of my work, here is a contact form" type websites on them.

    Hey, quit the sarcasm! Of course I did a backup! I saved it in my website's online directory!

    ...I've never said to be a smart man.

    Anyway, thank you all for your help. I will try Dropbox out :)
