I want to move my website here, but to avoid the service interrupted, can I
1) Get a host with a subdomain
2) Move my data, and export the (small) database
3) Once that work, change the DNS of the domain to freehostia?


Another question, can I have several free hosting? (I want perform some tries before to move the big things on paid hosts ). :)

The only way you could do what your proposing is to setup an account here, move all your data and then get your domain forwarding requests here. You would not be able to have yourdomain.com at once place and sub.yourdomain.com here.

Yes you can have several accounts.

sounds about right

when you sign up, you'll get your subdomain automatically (like webix.freehostia.com or whatever you choose) then log in to the control panel, add your domain, then you''ll have 2 websites, switch over your DNS and wait till it propagates, i'd leave a redirect file in the old hosting site until it propagates.
