I would have thought that your ISP will host your domain, My ISP offers free hosting + free transfer of domain

I know you asked for a free one, but Freenetname click here do it for £2.50 a month (they used to be free, hence the name), if that's any help.

I host with Clara.net, who are NOT my ISP (blueyonder cable).

I use mine for emails mainly, as I wanted to have a permanent email address. Their basic package (clarahost light) is £29.99 pa (incl VAT) click here

I found the same thing as you. My first domain name was with Freeola but I found you could only upload, download, amend or edit the site via Freeola (and like you I already had an ISP). When I tried to transfer to another hosting service it took Freeola 6 months to release the tag. My existing hosting service is not free (nothing is for free) but at least I can make changes 24/7 now.

Regardles of whether you get a "free host" or not, unless Freeola have changed their system recently you still won't be able to do anything with your domain name without going via Freeola. Which was the reason I got mine transferred.
