Since you have the domain name you are already incurring that expense.

For $19.95 a year you can have shared hosting at It's not
the most reliable host in the world, but for the bucks it is value
received. I have two of my domains hosted there, that I can accept having
some outages. For my more demanding domain I have it hosted at Verio for
$12 a month (used to be $24).

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Thank you for the offer, but I do not
pay for any of my domain names. Either I get them as a gift from
readers (as is the case with or I otherwise find
them around for free. If I had to pay for them, I probably would just
quit doing this totally. PAT]
