10 Best Free Web Hosting Service Providers

Web Hosting is the chief requirement if you want to make a blog/website.  There are many biggies already doing well such as Hostgator, Bluehost, GoDaddy, One.com etc. but many people are not ready to invest money on web hosting until and unless their requirement is very important.

Especially when you are learning or you need some space just for testing purpose then you won’t feel like spending money on buying hosting space. In such case, you can opt for free web hosting! Yes, free web hosting. There are many free web hosts available across the web which you can use for your different usage. Many of them provide sub-domain as well to use with hosting. If you already have your own domain(if you don’t have any then book your domain here) then you can simply point your domain to the hosting provider you choose by updating the nameserver of the domain.

Best free Web Hosting Providers


    1. 000webhost

000webhost is one of the oldest and pioneer in the hosting industry. Most importantly, its free web hosting offers the services that are no less than premium. The only things you get less in the free plan are the low resources such as less RAM, less bandwidth, and less storage. But, other services like uptime, server speed, and support are great. If you want more resources, you have to go for its premium plan.


They have been in the hosting business since 2007, and initially they used to offer the only free plan but later from 2008, they started to offer premium plans as well.  In the free plan, they offer 1 GB free storage spacem, 1GB monthly bandwidth, 2 MySQL Database, etc.
Personally, I have used 000webhost for a short-term small project as I didn’t need much resources, and the outcome was great. No downtime, quick server response time, and everything was smooth. It felt like, I used premium service.

I have written a detailed review of 000webhost which you can read here.

Conclusion

Now you have the list of 10 best free hosting providers list which you can use to make website/blog or you can use them as your test server to test the websites you are designing or developing. To be honest, I would like to suggest not using free hosting services if you are doing serious business with your website or if you are a professional blogger. For learning, testing and normal hobby blogging they are great. There are many reasons I am suggesting not to use for serious usages because free offers might not give you back up facility, security, Support. Plus if they shut your site you cannot claim anything.

That’s all from my side! I want to hear more from your side now. Thanks for reading the post.

  • great.i used to know about no. 5 but the rest are new to me.thanks for sharing.am currently looking for a reliable free hosting company for my new blog and i think i’ve found more than that.

    Thanks

  • Hi Atish,

    I think that I’m unfamiliar with so many good stuffs. Yes, never heard about free hosting providers. Thanks for sharing these details. I’m desiring to start a new blog with any of these service providers. I think that there wouldn’t be any difficult to rank for the targeted keyword with these free services. Isn’t it?

    • Thanks for coming by Nirmala. Try testing out they are good. You can but if you use custom domain then it will be better because subdomain has always less priority than main domain.

      • Sure Atish. Will use the custom domain as you said, test any of these free hosting services on it and try to get good SERP for blog posts. Thanks for replying.

  • I am totally agree with you Atish, that if you want to do some serious business then stay away from these free web hosting services. These days many newbies are looking for these free web hosting to save some bucks but the truth is we can’t make money through business, if we didn’t invest in business.

  • This is really a great list of webhosting service provider but if any one is little bit serious about the website or their business, he/she must refrain himself from these free hosting service providers. Just use these free hosting service provider for testing work only.

  • Hi Atish
    Nice list. I started my first wordpress website through Hostawesome its nice. But some time when website traffic are increase it become a slower. nice article thanks to share with us.

  • This is an excellent article! If only I’d known before I hosted my site on a paid hosting service! Nevertheless, thanks for the tips!

  • Hello Atish.
    Thank you for the list. It very useful for me because i plan to start a WordPress site but i don’t have a visa card to pay for the web hosting. But now i will have to test all these.

    Thank

    • Yes, you can test these out but I won’t recommend these if you want to do serious blogging. But yes for learning purpose they great 🙂

  • Hey Atish, I found most of them earlier but then refused to go with them and opted for Hostgator instead.. But your point is good as we can use these providers for testing purpose.. 🙂 Do they offer same cPanel as Hostgator?

  • I’m using Blue host on my blogging techniques bog. Blue host is also a very best hosting provider. I’d faced a lot of problems in my blog when I asked about any problem through live chat. They quickly solved my all issues.

    • Yes bluehost is one of the greatest hosting providers but I have here shared the list of free ones only. Thanks Mustafa!

  • Nice , i knew few of them but others are new to me. I wil definitely try to use them. 🙂
    Thank you for sharing with us…

  • Thank you Asish,
    I already paid Go Daddy and got myself a site, with site builder. I did that for my photo website but it’s not ready as yet.
    Would love to have one for blogging and will surely give one of hours a try for sure.
    Thanks Harleena. I work on a shoe string budget for the present.
    This will be a godsend.
    Nick

    • Hey Nicolas, Thank you very much for stopping by. Yes, Free hosting services are good but not good if you are doing something professionally. Keep visiting.

    • Free hosting services are good for Testing purpose as I said in the post. Thank you that you stopped by Morgan!

  • Hii, Atish a very informative list for newbies. I will recomend every newbie to use this free service before buying paid hosting. As in intial days of blogging everyone dont want to spend dollars.

    you should mention hostinger too. I am using hostinger. and it is good but not best.

    And one more thing Atish bro, you should mention traffic limit per day. Please recomend a free hosting provide which provide 500 page views per day.

    • Hello Pradeep,

      Thanks for coming by. I will try adding the things that you have pointed out.

      Enjoy the weekend.
