What's the most popular method for reading files hosted on Godaddy sites?

I'm putting together a company web site and I want to create a page that
displays an employee's contact information.

I have the free Godaddy hosting (no PHP).

Not good, you're options are basically zero if you mean
"reading files" as a scripted include. Advise you find hosting WITH PHP

Take care,

No other way to say it, because it's been repeated ad nauseum - Any
business that can't afford $5/month for paid hosting should not be
called a business, but rather a hobby. Free hosting means you're not
really serious about conducting business.

That said, you need PHP, so get a paid hosting solution.

Yes, "free" usually means "ads", and unless they are clearly related to =

When I see a business website that is hosted by another company (such as =

Manta), the business loses some credibility. And even when business =
addresses are on AOL or Yahoo or Gmail, I lose some trust and respect.

Also be careful about posting employee contact information on an =

kept in a database or file where access is password protected and/or =
