Along with the server space required, it is also important to note how much bandwith your site consumes during October.

250Free.com allows 250 MB per month

Just for reference, in October 2008, HauntedIllinois.com needed ~135 GB bandwidth, which is about 540 times that amount. If you go over their max bandwidth, your website will either be disabled after you reach the 250 MB of traffic or you will have to pay for any traffic above and beyond their stated limit.

Also, beware of any FREE services that offer huge amounts of bandwidth. If a free service offers 500GB of bandwidth per month, that just means that they won't charge you beyond that amount of traffic. In such a situation, it is quite possible that their servers aren't capable of handling the traffic your website gets, resulting in significant download delays and downtime for your site, which won't set well with people trying to visit your URL.

That's just something to keep in mind!

Oh, I use http://www.speedsoft.com and they have great customer service and quick response time.

I heard some people run their webpages from Geocities.com - They have free webhosting, but you are required to have an anchored advertisement on your page with the free version. They also have cheap web options that you can buy to increase storage capacity and get rid of the anchored advertisement. It's definitely worth, isn't it?

I agree with Nightgore, GoDaddy is inexpensive and has great customer service.
