Since you are using a free service, you will only have a limited amount of space for your videos, but this amount of space is usually pretty large.
If you want a more professional website, then you can actually build one using a program called Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver will cost you money, but that is the price that you have to pay in order to have a real professional website to upload your videos onto.
