I am planning to host my collage project web site on any such free webhost, is it secure or are there any disadvantages or risks or security issues that i may experience if i go for free web-hosting?

This is more of an alternative to the actual question, so I'll add as a comment. A Small Orange has a Tiny plan that's only $25/year which you might consider as a better option than taking your chances with a free host. Other than limited space and bandwidth(compared to their regular plans; it's still not bad), it's a full-fledged hosting account. – Su' Jun 17 '11 at 19:51

there could be many disadvantages such as:

  • Lack of Support
  • Low performance by servers compared to others
  • Lot of Advertising
  • Hidden Charges
  • Unreliable
  • Poor web security
