Presenting a website to clients without domain name and hosting
I am currently working on a website for a local business. I have created the home page and contact us pages. I want to present the website to my clients to show them what the website looks like and if they want to move forward. The site is currently on my code editor and computer. Are there programs out there that would allow me to upload the website so I can show it to my clients. I don't want to go through the process of getting a domain name and hosting because the website is not a sure deal.
Any suggestion or help would be great!

I think is a lot better if you have your own domain and hosting to show that client and all future clients their website.
I just created a sub domain from my domain and i upload the websites there. You'r going to look very professional doing it that way.

I've not used any of these services, but I was aware of them.
If you're running a localhost on your machine, you can use one of these services to make it accessible publicly.

Another free alternative I've used is to put the site into a "Public" folder on Dropbox and supply the URL to the client. The documentation is very clear on how to do this on the Dropbox site. You can also Google on how to do this. Just another option.
