Top 08 Free Web Hosting Providers of all time

By Ashish Sharma

In the last post , we discussed about “How you can start a blog for Free!” , and it requires you to get a web hosting service for free.(among other ways obviously). So now, let’s talk about 08 (why 08?) places where you can find web hosting for FREE ! Top 08 Free Web Hosting Providers of all time.

We will be talking about real genuine web hosts , not blogging service providers like wordpress or wix. Not that they are great , but they hardly offer the freedoms provided by a web hosting service.

A good free web host is sought by many but hard to be sustained by the provider. The kind of abuse they get , it is tough to be in business with it and still make money. That’s why many of them pack their bags in a year or two.

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.

The expense of setting up and maintaining a website can add up quickly, so picking the best free web hosting provider for your needs can help cut costs. But be careful, as we found that out of a list of 18 free website providers that we compiled, only eight of them – less than half, in other words – actually delivered the goods.

So, here is Top 08 Free Web Hosting Providers of all time.

#8. 000webhost.com

“Zero cost web hosting with PHP, MySQL, cPanel, and no ads!”.

That’s the marketing slogan of 000webhost.com, owned by Hostinger company and one of the top-rated free web hosts in the world. (wow !)

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.

Disk space: 300MB | Domain hosting: 1 | Monthly traffic: 3GB | Subdomains: 0 | Email accounts: 0 | FTP accounts: 1 | MySQL databases: 1

Better stay away from them.

#3.InfinityFree – ByetHost Reseller with a twist

They claim to provide Completely free website hosting with unlimited disk space and bandwidth. But do they really ?

InfinityFree offers free hosting. It doesn’t display ads on customers’ websites but you won’t get support via email, ticket, or phone. Its support options are only a knowledge base and forum.

That can be tested in time , but their website and control panel look promising. Until I actually signed up and created an account, I found it to be a ByetHost Reseller. (MyOwnFreeHost). The same service that you can get with us (for free obviously).

They clutter your cpanel with ads, I can’t say about the websites , i haven’t tested yet.

#2 Our very Own Free Hosting Service. @ host.leisurecave.com

I signed up for the reseller program of byethost in 2011 , but never gave it a professional / business Setup. It’s up and running since 2011. ( I am modest so I don’t brag about it ).

It’s a simple setup that lets you sign up for a free unlimited web hosting (like infinityfree ), but as with all free things , there are few restrictions (like file size limit , inodes , cpu capacity etc.) , nothing like a deal breaker. For a newbie , the service is AWESOME, and you must try it.

Reliability of service ? Me (leisurecave.com) and Byethost are up and running since 2008 , and we don’t have any plan to stop. So, relax and sign up !

#1. Free  (and almost free) Web Hosting Deals From Premium Providers.

Let’s face it , free web hosting services are what they are, and they can never replace a paid premium hosting service.Those free hosting companies listed above are NOT here for charity. It’s a marketing gimmick. Unless you plan on using these miserable services for rest of your life , you must at some point UPGRADE to a paid host.

And I am not talking about those multi million dollar hosting companies everyone is clinging to (bluehosts,hostgators,godaddies etc). Many good web hosting startups come every now and then , providing all sorts of offers – both free and almost free as well. You can get for free – a premium shared hosting,free reseller hosting or even a free VPS hosting.

These deals are well worth your time so do keep an eye on our Web Hosting Deals section. I often post a review of any such deal that may be helpful to you.
