I was thinking a good way to practice would be to build a small website.
Can anyone help me with where to find ACTUALLY free domain name or does this simply not exist?
If you want to practice, you do not even need a public domain!!! You can practice on your local host.
Go grab apache, and look into it. It allows you to host a sever on your local host which can only be accessed by devices on your local network. You will get more detail from the main site, as it is different for windows/*nix operating systems. Make sure you follow the instructions, and to save your projects with the right extensions. This will allow you to test and build all you want without the use of a public domain.
However, if you want a free public domain, there is 000webhost, which you can find by this link
they do not allow ssh, only ftp. For this you would need something such as filezilla, and transfer your pages over to your domain.
Hope this helps,
