Like most free hosting services, there is a small catch - as a condition of the free service, you are required to display a banner ad on every page of your site. But, unlike other free hosting services, there are NO annoying pop-up ads, and there is only ONE advertiser - the site sponsor, Medieval Marketplace. Also, your web designer is allowed to choose the location of the banner ad.
To qualify for free hosting on SCAGroups.com, you must be a non-commercial entity affiliated in some way with the Society for Creative Anachronism - this means official branches (Baronies, Shires, etc.) or unofficial groups (Households, guilds, etc.) as well as individuals who simply want to share articles, information, or just pictures of themselves at events. The only restriction on the free hosting is that the site be non-commercial in nature.
SCAGroups.com also offers paid hosting services for commercial websites and for those who want their own domain. For more details, visit www.scagroups.com
