000webhosting Introduction

If you want free web hosting, you usually have to live with ads on your site. With 000webhost, though, you can get a site which doesn't cost you anything and won't have any ads added by the host. There are limits to what you get, of course, but it's a viable way to create a site for an individual, club, or small business. You can even place your own ads on your site.

What You Get

When you sign up for a free account, you can create a site using the Easy Website Builder, WordPress, or direct uploading. That's an impressive range of options for a free site. You get 1000 MB of disk space and 10 GB of bandwidth, which should be fine as long as you don't have a lot of huge images.

Users can manage their websites through cPanel. It allows management of databases, email, files, backups, and FTP accounts through a web page. Files are automatically backed up monthly, giving minimal protection, but you can initiate backups of the website and databases from cPanel to keep them more up to date.

A free account can have up to 5 email addresses, which can be set up for webmail, POP3 or forwarding. SMTP access, spam filtering, and autoresponding are supported.

Easy Website Builder

The Easy Website Builder is the simplest choice for someone who doesn't have much technical knowledge. The editor, for some reason, is on zyro.com, and there's no explanation or warning when you're taken there. It's legitimate, though.

You start by choosing a template and then edit the components to look the way you want them to. You can drag icons for "text," "picture," "YouTube," and so on into the page and then add content to them. The template provides standard pages, and you can add more or delete existing ones.

While no technical knowledge is strictly required, someone who understands the concepts of CSS will have an easier time of it. For example, you can't directly change the font, size, and color of a text object. You have to select a style for it and then edit the style, using the less than obvious "Edit styles" item at the end of the menu. There appears to be no way to add to the handful of available styles. Styles can have different renderings for different classes of devices, making it easier to set up a mobile-friendly site. You can even add raw HTML in a pane, so there's a place for expertise.

There are some oddities. Links are live in the editor, and clicking on them by accident can take you away from the page you're editing. A certain amount of editorial carelessness detracts from the impression. The "Properties" dialog has an option for "Show in a specific pages," and a label mentions "standart buttons."

PHP and MySQL

One of the most impressive features is that you can run PHP and MySQL from a free account. This requires using WordPress or uploading files rather than building the site online; some expertise is obviously necessary. Free accounts are allowed two databases, without size limitations. Management of the databases with phpMyAdmin is included. You can use PHP to send out email automatically.

If you run a WordPress site, there are few restrictions. You can add your choice of themes, plugins, and widgets. The space limitation could be a problem if you add a lot of them.

Support

While 000webhost doesn't provide support to free users, it lets them post questions to a forum where other users may give helpful replies. Searching the forum may find answers to questions right away. Their quality will vary, and older discussions may not reflect the current feature set, but they're a good place to start.

What You Don't Get

When you pay nothing, you don't expect everything. Some omissions, though, could be serious concerns to many site owners.

The most important absence is SSL support. This makes any site which accepts passwords or other confidential information a risky proposition. With many people using unsecured Wi-Fi, interception of data is a very real danger. Running e-commerce without secure access would be a bad idea.

PHP on free accounts tends to be behind the latest version. This can keep some software from running.

You need to remember to run backups periodically. The automatic monthly backup is just a safety net if you forget completely.

Paid Upgrades

While you're working on your free site, you'll see plenty of reminders that you could get more with a paid account. The site is frank about the limitations of its free service. There is no guarantee, accounts can be removed without cause, and performance may be erratic. Paid plans and contributions are what make the free sites possible.

A paid account comes with a free domain. At the top tier, customers can buy as many additional domains as they want and run any number of sites. Paid accounts don't have caps on bandwidth and disk space. The limit of 2 databases in a free account is lifted. You can create as many databases as you want.

The service commits to 99.9% uptime. Support by live chat is included with paid accounts, 24 hours a day. Private SSL certificates are available with paid accounts.

Pros and Cons

The obvious plus of 000webhost — the whole point of its existence, in fact — is that it's free and doesn't put any ads on your site. If economy is your main priority, you can put up with a few shortcomings. You can create an attractive site with the Easy Website Builder, even if you don't know HTML.

Summary

The resources you get for free are limited but adequate for a simple site, and being able to run PHP and MySQL is a strong positive for a free service, even if it isn't always the latest version. Being able to manage everything from cPanel is a rare feature among free sites.

Don't expect a highly available site. A site may temporarily go offline for exceeding limits, accounts can be terminated without cause. A free service must constantly cull spam accounts, and it's easy to make a mistake. Files larger than 5 megabytes aren't prohibited but may be deleted without notice if space is tight.

There have been security issues. In 2015, over 13 million passwords were stolen from 000webhost. Security experts concluded that the passwords had been stored as plain text, which is a substandard security practice.

If you're willing to spend money on an account, there are better options. Phone or email support is a necessity for a serious business, as is secure SSL access to the site. The strength of 000webhost.com is in its free sites, and there it's quite impressive.

I have used several hosts in the past few years, and used this as well. I find this a quite good hosting site. The limitations are however a bit of problem on free hosting.

They provide just 1500 MB for storage and they are less than the storage capacities I used before, I recommend to use this for blogs and use other free services for image hosting. The uptime they said is 99% on Free Hosting but I noticed more downtimes than other hosts I used. Premium Service is fantastic to use however.

The speed is a bit slow compared to other hosts and there is a box of advertisement on Websites on free hosting which can be annoying sometimes. The Website builder is good for new users, and the cpanel is also familiar to new users.

I tried 000webhost for a few weeks and I was planning to try out the Live Media Share script with it, that being said, this plan obviously did not work very well and it was mostly just a failed experiment on my end. That experience aside, considering the fact that you get Free Hosting and many options for both building and uploading files to your website: it's a pretty good alternative to paid hosting. While I wouldn't personally recommend it for professional use, it can be very handy when you're just starting out or just want to try out making your own website instead of using Weebly, Webs or subdomain hosting of that nature. Their support team was also very quick and helpful to respond to me when I had troubles.

I think free 000webhost is not that much good it has so much of issues on their server and but paid hosting is good as compare other there pricing is also quite nice it will you a long time of benefits. So Don't go to Free Hosting invest in the good hosting plan which gives you a nice result in your work. The free hosting will never crawl in Google's first page it will give you a disadvantage in ranking.

I started using 000webhost when I was a newbie, I find it really very good choice for newbie's or pupils who wanted to start up. It's Cpanel is very simple to use anyone whether he is a newbie or a experienced one can use it easily. They offer great range of features like 10gb of bandwidth & 1000MB Disk Space is enough for starting up a small blog or websites, It's best thing is that it is ad free & you can also host your own domain with it for free.

They claim 99% of uptime but I often noticed downtimes. In the end! it was a good idea to use 000webhost.

000webhost was the first web host I tried. I really liked it, it seemed to have all the features I needed. It has FTP, DNS, Site builder and more!

But after a while I got used to different web hosts and noticed how limited 000webhost is. For instance you are forced to have a 000webhost link on your page (unless you pay them). And your are limited to the amount of resources available. I suggest that only beginners that are new to the web to use this.

000Webhost falls short compared to the other hosting options, even more if you are used to hostings such as BlueHost or HostGator. On the one hand, the value of this hosting is very uncompetitive and the options it gives are very limited. Support is often limited to support forums or creating a ticket that takes a long time to be rolled back.

About the methods of payment that are offered on the web, there are very safe ways to do it and in a simple and fast way. In conclusion, I would rate 000WebHost as a very regular and a bit limited hosting, considering the price that has to be paid.

This Webhost sucks. Period. One day they literally deleted everything on my cPanel, and refused to tell me why.

They simply said that I had violated their terms and conditions, and when I asked what those were, they again refused to tell me what that was. I finally realized it was probably that there were a few images that I had on the site that I wasn't directly using on my site, and they assumed I was using their host for storage, which is against their terms of services. However, I was not using it for storage.

If you're going to offer a free hosting service, please be ethical and if you think someone is violating your terms of service, and it isn't completely clear, talk to them about it. It's pretty simple. They just find a way to clear data and will find any excuse they can to do so.

Their strategy is obvious. If I had any important data saved on there, I would have sued, but fortunately I had copies of everything.

It is very cool web hosting for beginners but it always promote it users to buy Hostinger premium hosting. It also shows ads at the homepage of our site hosted on this hosting. It gives very low storage and bandwidth.

It also gives ftp which is very good feature. We can also set custom domain.

My company moved to 000webhost Cloud Hosting recently, and after interacting with support multiple times I can say it's the best support experience I've ever received from a hosting provider! The last ticket I submitted got a detailed response in just a day, you may get late answers but the answers are satisfying. They Are very polite and they never Ignore any Messages.

In addition to great support, the flexibility of the cloud hosting service is a unique feature that makes 000webhost a great choice for my growing business. Keep up the awesome work! And It's Best Part Is It's Free.

It Don't Charge For The Services Which Most Of The Hosting Servers Cost a lot. They Have An Excellent Uptime And My Website was never temporarily down even for a minute. It's CPanel Is So Easy To Navigate that I don't waste Any Time Searching for Features.

I Highly Recommend You To Use It. For free! Being Honest, they also have some paid features.

If You Are Lacking more control and features, You can buy Premium hosting which cost way less than the paid ones. It Cost Only $4/MO To A $9/MO.

000webhost sucks. They randomly shut down one of my sites for some reason. They won't tell u what the reason is just that it violated their Terms and Conditions.

You have to pay to upgrade your hosting to get your files out and there's no guarantee Your Site will even go live again. And they also start to curtail the features like storage space etc. And always showing ads for upgrading my hosting plan. That's why 000webhost sucks.

As a starter I did not had good budget.
000webhost was a good option for learning and demo project. When you search for free web hosting online a lot of options appear. I was confused over reliability issues.

But I searched online and results were appreciating 000webhost. I gave it a try. Now I can say it is best Web free web hosting available.

Their support is weak sometimes but if you upgrade to a paid plan that resolves this weakness. Uptime is 18 hours on free plan and guess what, you can set downtime according to your needs. In short if you are a starter and don't have enough budget then you must give it a go.

The overall value we get after getting a domain and hosting it through the 000webhost is good. The cpanel they offer are the most used ones and every person can be familiar with the options provided. But the limited features makes is little uneasy for professional persons.

The features are scattered and we have to click each option for going to any specific option. For beginner, it is best but if you are professional then surely it lacks several features.

When I got to know that 000webhost is owned and managed by Hostinger, I was tempted to sign up. I would like to divide my review into pros and cons which are as follows;-

Pros:-
1) Uptime is Excellent I never came across any moment when the server was down.
2) User Interface is excellent for beginners.
3) Sign Up Process gets compeleted easily.
4)No Domain Transfer Charges
5)It is extremely easy to navigate through the ftp server.(This is something which even the top Hosting providers don't have. Cons:-
1) There website says that you will get 3 Free email accounts, The truth is that you will get 0.

They only provide email forwarding service using which all incoming can be forwarded to your personal mailbox. You will not be able to send emails using your domain email address.
2) The website says that they have a cpanel. Don't ever expect cpanel You will get their custom control pannel.
3) MySQL Databases take a lot of time to update.
4) The parked domain shows up Days after the nameservers are changed.

Conclusion:-
If you are an absolute beginner you can use 000webhost for creating a simple website. However if you have even little knowledge about what cpanel and hosting are then you should stay away from it

This hosting company has many useful features for people looking to begin creating websites. However, features like DNS modifications are not available. If you're looking for a basic way to start your own website, 000webhost is the easiest way to do that. Upgrading to a hosting service with more features would be useful for users that have more experience.

Hosting at 000webhost, being totally free shouldn't have any complaints. Its upside is that it is totally free with no credit card information required and also no limit on the duration you want your website to be hosted. You are allowed to host two websites at a time.

Perfect for someone just getting started and want to try things out before paying for premium hosting. Enough storage and bandwidth for beginners is another plus point. I've never experienced any downtime/sleep time on my site, although newer or affiliated website may have a Four hour sleep time once a day of which the timing can be set.

Coming to the negative aspects of the hosting provider which claims 10% Free Hosting with no ads, I think it's quite misleading when you are forced to have a banner of 000webhost at the very bottom of your website. Also, the backend (wordpress for me) displays a banner to upgrade to paid hosting every time I access the backend. You don't get an actual cpanel, just a few options on your account page of 000wehost itself which are limited to FTP, Parking and pointing domains, statistics and database options. Overall, being totally free and reliable, it is no doubt the best free hosting provider and the best choice for beginners who just want to explore.

Overall it is good will suggest for startup bloggers, admin panel is good. So far, I've been most impressed with 000webhost. It amazes me how quickly and easily editing the site manager.

Have you been pwned? Due to This Webhost I sure have. Not only did they have my email address, name, and Plain text password stolen.

I never once received a single email or warning from this site. I was notified from my email provider that someone from outside my country attempted to log in. Thankfully I was smart enough not to use the same password but I now receive spam due to this.

This site doesn't care about your security! Seriously, if they don't care enough to encrypt your password you need to ask yourself what else are they cutting corners on.

000webhost rocks. It offers speedy service and providers free DNS. I love it.

It also offers 100 GB of cloud space, and allows us to host any website from any website creator. For 1 year only, as a matter of fact. If we want, we can host multiple URLs from 1 account.

It needs only 1 hour, or quite less. It is also easy to use and understand. You just have to enter required information in specific fields and you're done!

000webhost was really nice when i first used their services 3 years back in 2014 and that time they were having a quickest support system either you are newbie user or an experienced one... Now there services turned really bad and slow they aren't focusing on new features and there are even better services out there by other hosts like hostingator and many more... Then later i left that 000webhost and also my website...

Now i am using Blogger free services for limited time and side by side i am looking for cheap and better services which can replace 000webhost and other hosting services in my budget. I hope you guys will help me to do this...

I have used 000webhost.com for over seven years on their generous Free Hosting plan. Website uptime is pretty reliable, however they do get Ddos attacks from time to time. They have done a good job at protecting against attacks, but have suffered down time here and there.

Support in the forums, is good, but you have to wait for a response. Support is also available 24/7 in the account back end. The 24/7 ticket support is very good and often you will get a response within a few hours or so. Their free plan is very generous with no forced ads, PHP, MySQL, Domain and Subdomain support, FTP, e-mail, and more.

I've personally used 000webhost for a really long time, and I recommended and registered for my friends a couple times too. The 000webhost provides 1.5 GB and ad free hosting with no charge. That is a lot of space compare to the 200-500 M ones.

And it's certainly more stable than the unlimited Free Hosting as well. The things I like about 000webhost the most is their stability. Every time I can open my website with a reasonable speed.

And they do not delete my accounts even when I'm not using them. The ping (speed ) for this host is not very fast.(At least not in Canada). But it's very reasonable.

I also like their customer service, once you send a ticket(even for free hosting ) They will reply to you less than one day. In conclusion, I really like 000webhost, there are free hosting providers with larger disk space and quicker speed. But none of them last nearly as long as this hosting. At least with this hosting, you can put your codes in there and not afraid of losing them .

I chose 000webhost because it was free (of course). I had problems with it the entire time I used it. I was hosting a WordPress site on it and I was constantly getting errors from WordPress when trying to upload themes and plugins.

I had to use an FTP client which is a pain when trying to quickly update and edit a site. Add to that the user interface isn't the best. It's clunky and some features are hard to find. Also, routing email through it was a huge headache.

yeah 000webhost rocks because main thing it is free and using from last 6 months.I like its features, quality and also good support in even free version. Its features are awesome. It supports mysql and php. 000webhost have free version if user just want a test drive or want to check its services.I am also using free version still but free is better for small website owners.I am also an small website owner. 000webhost's main thing is that they didn't show ads on Free Hosting which I like most.

It is giving all needful things like email-accounts, free website builder, and lots more. Only one thing that I didn't like is uptime. But all over its good for small website owner

I have used the free plan on and off for a few years now. Each time I use it I have different thoughts about the host. The only problem I find is that there is still no script installation for the free version of this hosting provider.

Although, that being said it's easy to add a script manually. I have had multiple support tickets since I've first encountered these guys and must say their support is very prompt and helpful. Overall this host can have it's good and bad moments but for a free host it is very good.

They also offer a paid version but I haven't tried that one before. Overall I give this host a rating of 8/10.

The 000Webhost is the best hosting I have ever used! Almost of my domains are hosted there. The features they provide are really good and effective for the free plan!

I love it for their awesome website builder too, as it is simple and easy to work with and also is drag-n-drop! The most user friendly web hosting I could ever find is 000webhost and they are always up!

Yea 000webhost really rocks as it provides free domain and even hosting. Even I've been using this service and I've been able to do very well. The site is uptime for 99%.

The support is excellent. I feel proud for using this network. It has much lot of features in paid version but a little few in free service which are the things that are making 000webhost the best.

My website has hosted by 000webhost for two years and I'm not sure how I coped. The only good thing about their hosting is it is free. The main problem with their site is adverts.

Although they claim to be add free they are not. In the last few months of being with them I had random full page adverts popping up occasionally when I clicked on links on my site. The advert was for some gaming website.

They also put adverts on your website if it is "inactive". I kept getting these ads even though I was not inactive. When I contact them they said it was because they had changed their policy and that one day a week there would be a random advert on your website.

This seemed a little odd, but they did give me the code to get rid of it, thankfully.

000webhost also blocked visitors at random. I had a friend who could only get on my website from her work computer but not not her home one. I checked Wordpress but that was not the problem.

I don't know why it was happening but it was annoying.

000webhost has a lot of downtime and has been known to remove websites at random. It's not what you want from a hosting site at all. I don't recommend 000webhost at all.

Either find a better Free Hosting site or pay for hosting at a different site. I now use NameCheap.

000 webhost rocks because its a best free web hosting service which anyone can get. For a newbie investing a lot of money is difficult hence 000webhost is the best web hosting solution for all the newbies out there. I am hosting my 2 websites on 000 webhost.

One is mine & another is of college fest & I haven't faced a downtime yet. So its a great. I have installed wordpress on both of them.

Though they say they provide automatic wordpress script install but after registering & visiting the cpanel they show that they are upgrading the auto installer hence you have to install wordpres manually on it. In short it's a great free service you will get. So 000webhost Rocks!

I have been referred to 000webhost by my friend, initially I was using BlueHost but then my friend asked me to use their free hosting service by 000webhost. I really liked their features and got awestruck. Then the uptime was a problem which happens because of the Free Hosting shared websites, I went to upgraded to a premium offer and again liked their unlimited plan. I will surely ask my friend or anyone else to join 000webhost, because when they say unlimited its true over here.

Ok, I've been using 000webhosting for quite some time, and it's fairly decent for it's free option (haven't personally used any other)
As a student with a budget, it's hard to find money for anything, let alone web hosting, and what 000webhosting is doing with their Free Hosting is simply amazing. While the hosting itself isn't very great, it's completely free. The uptime is fine for me need, it's not perfect, but it's decent enough.

The cpanel for 000webhost is absolutely horrendous, I'm sorry but that's what it is, I know it doesn't impact the actual website I'm hosting, but it is still something for user experience for myself. The features are, again, fine for my need, but could be severely lacking for others, such as no SSL support. It does support webmail if you want a business looking email, which works well. 000webhost also offers a website builder from Zyro. In conclusion, while it isn't perfect, it gets the job done for free, which can be very helpful if you have limited money to spend

000webhost is an interesting web hosting website. They offer cPanel, and free web hosting, but then they post popup ads on your website and inject code before your web page is served. They would be Horrible for professional hosting, but for personal use or testing purposes it may be worth it.

000webhost is exactly as their name suggest: web-hosting for $0.00
Their features are quite good for a free host. They give you quite a lot of space and a MySQL Database. However, these features are limited as the database is quite limited, and can't be queried too often or your account will be suspended
Also, their support is volunteer based, meaning that you may not even get a return to your ticket.

Their auto-installer is broken, but their website builder is working. The response time is very slow and the uptime is horrible. Pros:
Loads of Space
Subdomain
MySQL
PHP
Free!

Cons:
Slow
Limited
Will spam you with Hostinger sign-up persuasive emails
Bad for SEO (google doesn't seem to index .comuf.com domains....)
Your account may get banned for any reason. tl;dr Go for it if you want to experiment with some things. For a Very small php blog OR Static site, it's Okay, but for a site that gets >50 pageviews / day, i won't reccomend it

I just opened an account with their Free Hosting solution and wanted to get my developer on the site but because he was in another country other then mine he could not get access., They did lower the login security but within twelve hours I got this message left for me. Suspended (Terms of service violation: Phishing, scam, warez, hacking)

I have had the site two days and finally got everything in place then this happens. They did not notify me of the what had happened no sense of anything wrong until today when my developer went to get into the place.

Everything in the directory was gone totally gone. and all I had left was that message above. As far as I am concerned they are five thumbs down.

Support dropped the ball and if they per sa wanted any future business from me by upgrading they lost out because of a lack of good customer service. If they really wanted to maintain good customer relations they would have contacted me with the problem and done something to resolve it. I was not the culprit that did the Phishing scam warez or hacking as they claim so the end of the matter is lost customers.

They don't know whether or not I could have brought them customers because they don't know me. The same could be true of anyone yet they chose to shut the site down with not notification whatsoever. its over and I can go any where and post my site with thousands of hosting companies around I don't need free but they were there and looked good but its not all peaches and cream from the inside.

Thanks for this opportunity to explain and get something that really bothered me out. The Entrepreneur.

My website hosted by 000webhost is usually down due to out of memory messages. I am only running a modest Wordpress site but I am sure they are trying to force the free users into paid accounts.

Well, is good for a starter website owner, but when you get more and more visitors, you must change the web hosting provider.

000WebHost is a great low cost, cheap and even free web hosting for newbie webmasters.If you are going to just takeoff your first ever site then you can go with 000WebHost. With their free web hosting plan one can host the low traffic site to them.They provide good up-time but sometimes sites get down.They provide you with a custom cPanel which enables you faster access to Database and Files.One can easily manage database, files, redirects and mails with the control panel. Coming to the support this is what they lack.

I never tried their premium hosting plan but frankly I can tell that sometimes I contacted the support and they never reverted back may be that's because that was a free plan. If you are just starting out on web then they also offer a free sub domain and sitebuilder which you can use to make your first web presence, may be to showoff to your friends. Their free plan comes with 1500MB disk space and 100GB monthly data transfer which is quite enough for hosting a basic website. The premium web hosting starts at $4.84/month with virtually unlimited disk space and bandwidth, cPanel and fantastico installer.

I can honestly say that 000webhost is the best free host that I've ever found. It has even, at points, been a possible rival to a cheap paid hosting package I have elsewhere. The uptime I have found, is very much above average.

Throughout my time using them my site's only gone down once, and that was for around 15 minutes, although at times pages can be a little bit slow to load up. Because of this, I'd recommend it for testing and personal purposes, but less so for commercial ones. The auto-installer has been been "broken" since I joined, and I'm starting to suspect that this is just a ploy to encourage people to buy the paid version which contains Fantasico.

Because of this, you'll need to be able to use FTP and be able to setup everything yourself, although this isn't too difficult. So it's not for absolute newbies really, but you don't need to be an expert or anything. I've never really had any problems, but when I did have one, I posted on their forums and received a very prompt response that left me pleasantly surprised.

So if you're looking to get started on the web, or for somewhere to host your personal site for free, 000webhost it is all the way! However, if Your Site starts to get big, I recommend possibly finding somewhere that can accommodate you better, as I did.

I've been with 000WebHost for a while now. It's pretty awesome mainly because of the zero price tag. For a free host, it has a large amount of uptime, although I would like to see it higher.

Their staff care about the users. My favourite features are the ability to add unlimited subdomains and the two free MySQL databases that come with it. I prefer that because many free hosts come with only one or no databases. 000WebHost has a reliable web-mail portal.

You get emailed about the latest updates, so I always know what's new, and what to expect. Unlike a lot of free web-hosts, 000WebHost comes with a free web-based file manager! To conclude, for a free web-host, 000WebHost is the choice to take.

This is the best Free Hosting out there. I used this like 2 months or more, for my domain. The uptime is pretty good too, they handle the traffic perfectly.

I use this Free Hosting for my forum! and the users on my forum said my website is fast accessible, I hope the best for 000webhost in the future!

At first looks like a pretty good deal..but when I started using it then problems begin to arise....Pretty Pathetic Customer Service....99 % uptime too good to be true. And after a month or so my website got banned, the reason they tell me that I breached their rules by exerting a little more force on their servers... But to summarize my interaction with 000webhost, I'd say a pretty bad decision it will be to choose 000webhost

000webhosts supplies a great service for new to web publishers. It offers a free version of there service so people can adjust and get the feel for things before deciding whether or not to dive into the world of web hosting. But with this free service there is of course downsides (Most resolved by upgrading)
The bad list:
1.

Supported web scripts, Yes it supports Html, PHP & MySQL, But I am rather disappointed in there lack of support for Python and other such languages. & if you are to use the Free service... I'm afraid to say your PHP Version will be rolled back too, so you can't use the newest and coolest PHP features without upgrading.
2. Control Panel - Most web hosts have one, and they're great tools...

but I can't help but think 000Webhosts is a little 'scattered', But it works and that's what matters, right? Wrong, as I said earlier they supply a free service for people to get used to web-hosting, But these people are new to it all, What on earth must they think when they see that panel?
3. Uptime - Yes all right...

It's free... So I cannot expect the best of up-times from it. But without upgrading I can assure you will go through hours of pain waiting for Your Site to come back Online (hair rippingly stressful huh?). All in all, A great little web-host for those who want a free or cheep service, And as expected, You don't get much for this (get what you paid for) but a very nice starting point if you can work with the control panel.

I used 000webhost, all say 99.9% uptime servers but believe me it's not :( it has low disk space 1500 mb is not good. Page loading too slow. Some PHP functions such as set_time_limit() are disabled and max_execution_time = 15s which may be short for big crowns No SSL support for your domain :( in short is not good for me

I have had these guys for a few years now to host my anime fan site. Now, I gave up on them. Everytime I try to upload to their service, it is freaking slow.

I have Comcast at 12 mbps and seems like iTunes and youtube can import and download faster then them. I would never use these for a host. They are good with hosting php format and html formats.

It is unlimited, but again, the service is slow. IF I try to remove my e-mail account with them, it never gets deleted, like iTunes, So I wish this site went down. I hated Hostultra, 50megs, Freeservers, Geocities, etc.

All dead. Actually Freeservers (my 2nd host followed by Geocities,) Not offer Free Hosting no more..All paid. It is not worth the time and effort info building a anime or any personal fan site.

000 web host is a very good hosting service Becuase it allows you to use your own domains, created unlimited subdomains, accounts & emails however you have to pay for unlimited ftp accounts, 000 web host is good for starters using it as a personal site but if they need multiple editors you should try using a paid host or upgrading to there paid plan.

I used 000webhost for a few months to host a webpage I only needed temporarily while I was working on a project. During this time my website was taken down multiple times because it was "under review". On top of that everything about their service is very outdated and made it difficult to do anything with.

After about the 3rd time it was taken down "for review" they just deleted my website all together claiming it was due to a TOS violation. They just deleted my entire website without warning. I tried submitting a support ticket but never got a response.

So I lost everything. I would strongly recommend you stay away from this service.

000webhost offers a reasonable, free service with one pop-up advertisement. The ad can be disabled but it's not obvious. I have recommended it to others with a few caveats.

Pros: otherwise ad-free PHP and Mysql hosting
Cons: pop-up ad is annoying and removing is not obvious, goes down at times, slow load times, low PHP memory limit (~6MB) limited DNS features on free plan, PHP version is getting old (5.2), no Imap access to e-mail, no shell or SSH access

One can workaround the Imap and DNS limitations with a bit of research. I'm no security expert, but any shared host has some risk of other users getting data. While using the service I haven't noticed any inappropriate access from other hosted users.

My account was suspended without any warning or details about what they think is wrong with my website. I have contact them and i asked for an explanation, but no response... The most unprofessional web hosting.

Don't use this free webhosting unless you are ready to lose your account anytime, for any imaginary reason. They will suspend your account even if you buy theirs paid service! Not recommended!

000webhost claims to provide free web hosting for domain but it completely composed of non professional people who do not reply to any support tickets, their up time is very slow, server speed is very slow and disk space along with bandwidth is very limited. They do not provide free web hosting because they also show ads on hosting websites registered on their servers. I will never again use their services and also recommend others to go for paid premium web hosting companies instead of sticking up to third class cheap hosting companies.
