FreeWebHosting.co.zw offers only one shared hosting plan and this plan comes with the following features:

This plan comes with one SQL database and five email addresses. It offers you remote connection using any FTP client to enable you to access your account easily.
For hosting management, it offers cPanel to help customers manage and control their accounts with ease. It offers one-click automatic installation of various content management system that includes WordPress, Joomla, phpBB, and OpenCart. The one-click tool is accessible through the control panel and only takes a few minutes to install any of these applications. Coupled with the installation of CMS, this plan also is optimized for WordPress.
With its free SSL certificate, you can rest assured that the information sent on your website is safe from hacking attempts. Your website will be authenticated and will rank on search engines.
One disadvantage of this hosting service is that it offers just one plan with resources that are very limited. With time, when your website grows, there will be no other plan to scale to. Nevertheless, as you grow, you should be prepared to move elsewhere; it’s a free web hosting service after all.
Pricing and Support
FreeWebHosting.co.zw’s shared plan is completely free of charge but only meant for Zimbabwe residents. It clearly states on its website that the reason for this is to minimize misuse of the service and to be able to provide support effectively.
The only service you need to pay for is domain name registration. This service is not made free to prevent abuse, but the fee charged for some extensions is way cheaper than the market price. So, you can choose to purchase a domain from FreeWebHosting.co.zw or transfer an existing domain when you use its shared plan.
To make payments for domain registration, you can use Paynow Ecocash/Telecash, PayFast, PayPal, and bank Transfer. It also offers a free demo with login details to the control panel, for you to have a look at what the plan offers.
