7 “Best” Free Web Hosting Sites (2019)
Posted 7 days ago, last edited 6 days ago
The popularity of free web hosting has exploded in recent years. And it’s easy to see why – with all the different expenses required to run a successful website, it’s tempting to try and cut costs wherever possible to stay within your budget. And what’s more budget-friendly than free web hosting, right? Well, not exactly… Free web hosts aren’t always what they market themselves to be. Tight restrictions they place on bandwidth, storage capacity, server speed, and uptimes can make your new site all but unusable. But don’t worry… we’ve done the heavy lifting for you. In this review, we compare 7 free hosting options to help you find the best fit for your site. Let’s dive in: 1. The Best “Almost-Free” Hosting ($0.99/mo) Hostinger homepage Sub-domain included: Yes Bandwidth: 100GB Disk Space: 10GB Support: Live Chat 24/7 Max. Websites: 1 Max. Email Accounts: 1 Uptime & Speed: Very Good Limitations: See terms of use Official website: After nearly 15 years in business and a client base of more than 29,000,000 people spread across 178 countries, Hostinger has become one of the free web hosting industry’s most dominant players. Ok, so they aren’t technically “free”… … But at only $0.99/month for their limited shared hosting plan they’re still one of the most budget-friendly web hosts on the market. With average load times of only 355ms (the second-best we’ve ever recorded), they’re also one of the fastest. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Even their most basic plan comes armed to the teeth with a whole bag of goodies including: 1 MySQL database 1 FTP user Access to their website builder One-click install of WordPress or other CMS A free domain name for 1 year 24/7 customer support (seriously, it’s one of the best) 100GB of Bandwidth and 10GB of Disk Space One free email account And, if the needs of your site outgrow the limits of their basic hosting plan, you can always upgrade to their premium shared hosting plan. Which include: Unlimited websites Unlimited email accounts Unlimited bandwidth Weekly memory backups Hostinger pricing and plans Limitations One of the only major annoyances we had while reviewing Hostinger is that their user interface doesn’t give you access to a classic cPanel… Instead, you’ll get a slightly downgraded made-in-house interface called the hPanel. It’s not our favorite user interface, but – considering the exceptional speeds, customer support, and features – we’re hard-pressed notto hold it against them.

Email Accounts: 0 Uptime & Speed: Bad Uptime, Good Speed Limitations: See terms of use Official website: “Zero cost web hosting with PHP, MySQL, cPanel, and no ads!”. That’s the marketing slogan of, Hostinger’s partner company and one of the top-rated free web hosts in the world. Now, if it sounds just a little too good to be true – IT IS! Yes, 000WebHost offers impressive speeds (especially for a shared free host), and their no-ads policy makes for a much cleaner and friendlier user experience. Unfortunately, these two factors alone simply aren’t enough to compensate for the myriad of other limitations. *Note: It’s worth mentioning that 000WebHost experienced a massive security breach back in 2015 where the private information of more than 13,000,000 customers was leaked. Limitations Of the many problems that we experienced while reviewing 000WebHost, none was more prevalent or frustrating than their utterly unusable uptimes. With an average uptime of only 99.70%, you can expect to experience at least an hour of downtime every other week on your site. Think of all the traffic and sales you might lose every single month. To make matters worse, you’re also limited to a mere 10GB of bandwidth, 1Gb of disk space. To top it off, there is no email or live chat customer support to assist you in the (all but certain) event you encounter a problem with their service. Here’s 000WebHost free plan average uptime and load time in 2019: 00WebHost’s uptime and speed 2019 Here’s our 000WebHost test site: Click here to find complete uptime and load time statistics for the last months Despite having admittedly impressive speeds, with such horrible uptimes and heavy limitations, we cannot recommend 000WebHost to anyone unless it’s an absolute necessity. 3. Most Unlimited Features Sub-domain included: Yes Bandwidth: Unlimited Disk Space: Unlimited Support: Forum/Knowledge Base Max. Websites: 400 Max. Email Accounts: 10 Uptime & Speed: Good Limitations: See terms of use Official website: With only 200,000 customers, InfinityFree is a relatively small player in the web hosting game. Despite their small client base, they’ve managed to carve out a reputation for themselves as the most feature-rich free web host on the market. Even though you will undoubtedly experience some problems with their service, this reputation is well earned. InfinityFree comes with the following: Free SSL certificate with all plans (a very nice bonus) No front-end ads Free CloudFlare CDN 10 email accounts 1 FTP account Unlimited bandwidth and storage space 400 MySQL databases. It’s safe to say that InfinityFree gives you a big bang for your unpaid buck. But when you skim through their terms of service and acceptable use policies, things start to get a little more “interesting.” Limitations What InfinityFree doesn’t advertise on their website is that their offers of “unlimited” bandwidth and storage space come with some seriously limited restrictions. In their terms of service, they place significant and ambiguous restrictions on the types of content and files you’re allowed to upload. Also, the amount of the so-called “unlimited” bandwidth on offer is also questionable. And the best part? The penalty for non-compliance with the limitations on their “unlimited” offer is the suspension or elimination of your website and data – Ouch! Here’s InfinityFree’s free plan average uptime and load time in 2019: InfinityFree uptime and speed 2019 Here’s our test site: Click here to find complete uptime and load time statistics for the months Generally, their uptime is pretty good, but this January, for example, we experienced over 40 hours of downtime.

RE: 7 “Best” Free Web Hosting Sites (2019)
Posted 5 days ago A Free Hosting service aswell... if you have a domain, then you can have a FREE Server for LIFETIME, unless if you want more things etc. Limitations there are always in the plan when you want FREE things, nothing is Unlimited on Free hosting industry, unless if you are use technologies for Decentralized and Serverless websites through Blockchains, BitTorrent etc technologies, but ok, the only limit i face so far, is just to use a single SQL and a single Domain, everything else, is 'Unlimited'. For Faucet Owners, is exactly what it needs. But anyway... you can find a LOT of services, for hosting and NOT only hosting, also affiliate programs, programming & coding, webmaster Marketplace etc etc and soo many other things like a dedicated forum on e-commerce with Fiat money, Cryptos etc, on WJunction. WJunction is one of the oldest forum for this particular thing, like a Cryptocurrency you can find the official thread of this on BitcoinForum, the same goes for small startups, big (or not) companies for Video Hosting, Web Hosting, Image Hosting... etc etc etc.. and as i say.. NOT only for Hosting, but sooo many other things. If you want an official forum that you can find OFFICIAL threads/offers etc for Hosting, then you probably need to discover what you can find or not on WJunction first. Regards.
