The 000webhost sucks thread
#1
000webhost is one of the few free webhosts that has been around for an extended period of time. They offer generous bandwidth and disk space limits on the surface, but like all free webhosts they will suspend your account very quickly if you use any real resources for your website. They don't put ads on your website, so they really can't make much money off of what they do. In addition, many accounts are created for malware purposes, so 000webhost will often suspend accounts just because they suspect something going on when there is no problem whatsoever.

So, I figured since some of us here have some experiences with free webhosts I'd start a discussion on it. What's your experience with them?

I will never recommend anyone to try out 000webhost.

If you need free hosting, try Weebly, Blogspot or Wordpress.

Usually good blog or forum hosts are good enough for most people. The reason many people settle with hosts such as 000webhost is because they like having direct FTP access, but it comes at a high cost when it comes to "free" hosting in general haha.

It's only to provoke the haters of 000webhost haters, obviously.

They delete accounts for inactivity and for activity. I mean they advertise 100GB of bandwidth, which is generous for a free host, but if you use like 5GB of that, they'll suspend your account for resource abuse.

It's impossible to win with them, or really any free host for that matter.

I've used 000webhost in the past and to be honest, it's okay if you just want to upload a couple of files or test out your website while it's being developed. However, if you're planning to get visitors to said website (assuming it's already live), you should think about going with another web host that places ads on the web pages of your website, or get paid web hosting (paying for hosting - examples of well known web hosting companies - HostGator, Blue Host, etc).

I'm not sure how the stories go with 000webhost suspending accounts, but I don't think they'll be generous enough to host a website as large as IGN for FREE (IGN is one of the largest gaming websites on the Internet). It's shared hosting and I wouldn't want my website to be hosted on the same server with malware/etc. That's just me, Wink

Yeah they will, pretty much if you get any activity at all. It's a little frustrating. Tongue

What are you trying to host?
