Best free web hosting [ Updated List ]

Web site code

Everybody loves free stuff, so is it possible to get a free web hosting?

It is, but there are several things you need to know. As with everything in life, you'll get what you pay for. So when searching for a no-cost hosting keep in mind:

  • The customer support is usually bad or non-existing
  • Don't expect any uptime guarantee (your site might be inaccessible for a long time)
  • Free web hosts are usually much slower than standard hosting plans
  • Limited options and resources (storage, bandwidth, the number of emails, databases ...)
  • Hidden Fees: sometimes you have to pay for things that are free on standard hosting plans. Like subdomain or Let's Encrypt SSL certificate
  • Some providers will add advertisements to your website
  • Your website can be deleted with no warning and sometimes even without a reason
  • Usually there is a free plan and paid plan, so be sure to check every form before submitting

With free hosts there are no guarantees!

Traffic stats

Often I get the question: What is the best free web hosting provider? And I always reply: Are you serious about the website you want to build?. If so, think about a paid hosting plan. Let's find a good shared web hosting that will cost much less than expected.

Here is the cheap web hosting service I use and can recommend:

  • Hawkhost - from $2.24/month (25% OFF) for hosting plan with unlimited domains
  • SSDNodes - if you want a more powerful VPS hosting

Nobody will give you a free domain name. Use Namesilo - popular & my preferred domain registrar with great prices and functions, .com domains for only $8.99!

If you want something for testing or build only a temporary site, choose from the list below. If you are looking for speed and reliability, choose paid hosting plan. And what's the best free webhost? Every free website provider has some advantages and of course disadvantages. So choose carefully. But before uploading any content online, read the provider's terms and conditions.
