I agree about it not being the hassle and - at least with my ISP - it
would also constitute a violation of the terms of service.

I used to have a free site hosted somewhere, but eventually they
brought in some rather objectionable ads so I shut that site down.  I
at least reccomend having a domain name of your own, so that you can
move if something like this becomes a problem.

I moved exclusively to paid hosting a few years ago after I got tired
of dealing with free hosts.

Does your domain registrar offer any DNS hosting that you could use? 
(it seems that a fair number of them do these days)
