Prepare for SPAM

Unless you upgrade, they expose your personal information on the web and keep it out there. The endless SPAM and phone calls were awful. NO way to cancel without upgrading, so basically, you can't get your private contact information off without paying them. Only option is to upgrade to be able to have privacy or cancel, basically. This is really a kind of extortion.

Demand 100% perfect performance from a free hosting

In my opinion, this is the best free web hosting. The rich functionality is impressive – there is everything I need: php 5+, mysql database, ftp support, beautiful and user-friendly interface. Of course, sometimes there are “shoals” with efficiency, but to demand 100% perfect performance from a free hosting – if you please)

A good hosting for study

A good hosting for study. Many features like for free hosting. I have been using it for several months, posting my training projects, there are no special complaints. The operation speed is high, the interface is user friendly, no advertising. The only note – a couple of times the site was unavailable, but soon the problem was fixed and recently I didn’t observe such jambs.

Unreliable and unresponsive

Their servers have been down for months. Access to cPanel is also unavailable so there's no way to migrate out of their "service". Beware!They claimed that the issues have been resolved and files have been restored, but in reality the file directories are all empty.

Don't use FREEHOSTING

Out of the blue, my domain was not working anymore. I opened a ticket a week ago to report the problem I didn't get an answer. It's not a serious provider, I would never recommend it.

Deleted site

They deleted my site on purpose and put some bogus, poorly-worded ‘rebuilding site’ message when you visit the domain. Did not respond to several messages when I opened a ‘ticket’. Will go elsewhere and update my followers.

Bottom line on FREEHOSTING

FreeHosting.com is fine, but fine is not good enough. While FreeHosting.com is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.

FreeHosting.com is one of the most popular free web hosting providers in the market. They’ve been in business for 22 years, and they’re well known for providing quality free hosting (with no ads!) to innovative startups for the last two decades. Their free hosting plan includes quite a number of freebies, including a free blog, social network linkups, forum setup, a user-friendly website builder with over 170 predesigned templates, and a single-click app installer. Their cPanel is feature-rich but not so much that it overwhelms a beginner. Uptimes are not guaranteed at 99.99%, so you may experience the occasional interruption in service, but that’s to be expected on a free plan.

The caveat is that to take advantage of their free hosting plan, you do need to fork out a small sum to register your own domain. After that, hosting is 100% free for the entire lifetime of your domain with a generous 10 gigs of storage, 1 e-mail account, unmetered bandwidth (provided you comply with their Fair Use Policy), and PHP / MySQL functionality. Certain features may be unavailable in the free plan, but they may be purchased as separate add-ons. All in all, not a bad offering for a zero-commitment plan!

Of course, they also have paid hosting packages available. This comes with all the features of the free plan plus several value-added services like PHP mail, subdomains, SSH access, and an SSL cert. You also get multiple e-mail accounts (as opposed to just one), regular backups, a web analytics portal, CGI, multi-site hosting, and faster servers.
