Don't think your going to get unlimited bandwidth for free, and in any case, I would stay clear of unlimited bandwidth hosts as it is impossible to offer.

What is your site about, and how many users do you have?

yukino_girl, you may be interested to know that there are some sites around that will let you search for free hosts by your requirements, and often letting you use some of these type of criteria, such as by diskspace, transfer type, scripting language, database, etc.

Don't have any URLs at hand for them, but if I find one, may post it back. You should be able to find some of these with creative use of a pop Search Engine such as Google. Also, there was one of these posted in one of the forums on this site within the last month.

Would also advise, though, esp. when looking for a free host, to be sure to check their site yourself before investing much time. Not only do they have a tendency to go out of operation frequently, but some will change the terms of their offerings frequently as well, so many hosting databases will not be up to date. I noticed for example, when I took a quick look, that the first host service Daniel mentioned has a notice on their site they're not currently accepting signups due to abuse.

I'm sure they would advertise it if they supported it. It says "cgi-bin: Available 60-90 days", so that indicates to me that they don't support PHP.
