Free web hosting providers that allow you to install PHP scripts
Free Web Hosts with PHP Access / Support
Included on this page are the free web hosting providers (FWP) that provide you with the facility to install your own PHP scripts. For the uninitiated, PHP is a programming language that you can use to write programs that run on the web server. You can use it for many things, including, for example, handle forms that a visitor submits from your site, manage a message board or forum, etc. (You can find a PHP tutorial at thesitewizard.com.)
Note that most free web hosts with PHP support do not allow you to use certain PHP functions. For example, the mail() function in PHP is often disabled, meaning that your PHP scripts will not be able to send mail. If you need full PHP services, you will probably need to get a commercial (paid) web host.
Unless otherwise stated, you should also assume that all the hosts listed put advertisements on your site (whether it is a banner or pop-up window or whatever), and also that free web hosts often disappear overnight.
Update: in view of the frequent closure of free web hosts, the list below may be empty by the time you read this page. I update it from time to time with new free web hosts, but sometimes by the time I learn of them and get around to checking them out, they have already closed. Go with a paid web host if you need reliability.
