service www.mydomain.com.

Another alternative is just to bite the bullet and buy some cheap web
hosting. Hurricane Electric (www.he.net) and Crystal Tech
(www.crystaltech.com) both offer great service starting at $10/mo., and
there's cheaper hosts out there. In the long run, a paid hosting plan might
save him more time/hassle than dealing with a free plan.
