Basic Domains/Hosting/etc:
Domains:

Dot TK: http://www.dot.tk/
Get free .tk domain names. You can sign up with just an email. Pair with a free web hosting thing and you can look kinda legit.

SSL Certificates:
Let's Encrypt: https://letsencrypt.org/

In public beta, but lets you get SSL certificates for free. They expire after about 3 months.

Web Hosting:
000WebHosting: https://www.000webhost.com/
Gives you free hosting and a subdomain (often yoursite.comli.com or similar). Combined with a free domain name and use of some of the scripts we have available you can BS up a website for free. Gives you access to cPanel and FTP.

Hostinger
     UK: http://www.hostinger.co.uk/

     India: http://www.hostinger.co.id/
Similar to 000WebHosting, and they seem to have the same parent company. Trustability is questionable so consider using a fake email.

Weebly: https://www.weebly.com/
This is better if you don't actually know what you're doing and want to build a simple website.
License: N/A
Added: 2/29/2016
Google Sites: https://sites.google.com/
Much like the above this is great if you don't know what you are doing. Works well with Google Domains (though the domains are not free).

Software:
FileZilla: https://filezilla-project.org/

FTP client. Has client and server available for uploading files and making files available to others (as they put it). This is the trusted one, as I use it.
License: GNU General Public License
Added: 3/26/2016
KompoZer: http://www.kompozer.net/
A WYSIWYG (visual HTML editing software like Dreamweaver) that is free. The code can be weird but I use it and it seems to work just fine (even when the lines break at weird points).

Education:
Moodle: https://moodle.org/
An entire website script for education/schools. Has plugins, is open source, and so on.

Forum:
Simple Machines Forum: http://www.simplemachines.org/
A forum script more simplistic and logical than phpBB. The downfalls are that it seems more outdated (with backend this doesn't seem to matter too much but it looks older) and themes don't tend to help that front.
License: N/A
Added: 3/3/2016
phpBB: https://www.phpbb.com/
The standard php forum script. Incredibly well known, though a criticism is that phpBB3 has a cluttered admin system (This is a common complaint and I've dealt with it myself).
License: N/A
Added: 3/26/2016

MyBB: https://www.mybb.com/
Seems relatively new, theme/CSS is easy to modify. There is the base CSS file you can edit/change and a simple CSS editor for colors/etc.
License: N/A

Enjin: http://www.enjin.com/
Intended for use as a clan/guild forum site but works as a free forum site in general. Better if you don't want to put money down for good hosting or if you aren't good with FTP-related things. You get a free sub-url (yourforum.enjin.com).

Imageboards:
Shimmie2*: http://code.shishnet.org/shimmie2/
A Booru-style imageboard script. Unlike standard boorus, it is capable of handling other files (ranging from mp3 to zip to webm). However, it is far easier to go to booru.org to start a booru (though booru.org only handles images).
License: N/A
Added: 3/3/2016

KusabaX: https://sourceforge.net/projects/kusabax/
The suggested imageboard script (Futaba/2ch style). There are numerous out there but I feel this is the best one. Official website is http://kusabax.cultnet.net/ but the download tab is not working.
License: N/A
Added: 2/28/2016

Overscript: http://www.9ch.in/overscript/
A collection of many more imageboard scripts (primarily Futaba/4chan/2ch/etc. style).
License: VARIES

*Boorus are popular for hosting anime and/or pornography. Though not all boorus host anime/porn/etc, this is the dominant thing and you should be aware of this general theme.
If you do not know what 4chan is, please avoid making sites like these. 4chan and the like are notorious for being weird, disgusting, offensive, and, at times, outright repulsive. Also, the communities of these will sometimes attack other imageboards and people.
