Free hosting of multiple sites solution

ok, so I'm a beginner.I have been creating my portfolio that includes 5 bootstrap sites and now I'm looking for free web hosting. The purpose is to refer to the sites in job interviews .I'm a beginner and looking for a a job in a company and I don't have budget for hosting or domain.I explored the free hosting options and found some but the problem is that I have 5 sites-and from what I saw the free hosting is only for one site.So I'm looking for a simple and practical solution or presenting this sites.I thought to make 1 main site(about me and my works) and put the others as iframes but I don't sure it's the solution I also thought to host every site separately on different hostings and have one main site with links to them,or maybe I should just host 1 main site with screenshots an present the source code at the interview.I'm really a beginner so maybe there are options that I don't aware of them so please I would like to hear your recommendations for what I should do-maybe there are some free tools for portfolio purpose that you know.Thanks.

Something to consider:
If you are building a portfolio site why not get a domain name that reflects your name.

Some hosting offers include domain registration. Just be sure to read the Terms and Conditions of this type of offer.

If you buy your own name, you can also use this for other things like a personal blog etc.

The reason I recommend scraping enough money together for a domain name and web hosting is that anything free can disappear in an instant without any way for you to forward your incoming links or bookmarks to your new location. At least with your own domain name you are in control (as long as you read the conditions for the cheap offerings).

Don't go with free web hosting you will not have provision to register your site domain. So better go with affordable shared hosting service. You can have domain registration and complete support by host.Check out godaddy, scopehosts, hostgator, bigrock, hostpappy for affordable shared hosting.

Paid hosting is always a better solution if you are seriously willing to develop something online.

Without a doubt, the best advice so far, and probably better than any future replies here too.
