    Most of the times free hosting is not reliable enough. Now a days you can get reliable web hosting at very cheap rates.

    Whenever I see offers like this I immediately filter them out as to good to be true.

    Does anyone have a positive experience with these cheap hosts? Is it even worth it?

    How do they even profit?

    I haven't used any of those web hosts on that list, but I have used free hosts in the past. Most of the free web hosts come with drawbacks that make them difficult to use. Usually these drawbacks come in the form of:
    • Slow server speed.
    • Poor server maintenance.
    • Random server maintenance (or in the case of one web host I tried, they created a backup of my test site and moved it a few days later, causing me to lose some of the changes I made to the site during that time).
    • Upload limits.
    • Download limits.
    • Disabled SMTP (so you can't use contact forms on your site).
    • Ads are disallowed on your website.
    • Ads being placed on your website by the host.
    • Poor/no support.
    I'd imagine some of those drawbacks are present on cheap hosting as well.

    If the cheap hosting explicitly advertises that these drawbacks don't exist ("Unlimited bandwith", "99% uptime") is it likely that they will be sleazy and these drawbacks will still take place?

    Anyone mentioned CentexHosting? Been using that hosting from some time and they seem to be pretty good!

    It's like $11/6 months but yeah, the service is good.

    They have their BST here too and you can find 50% OF coupon.

    These are just some promotion offers. We don't rely on these offers to pay our bills and staff. For promoting business, all companies offer such low priced packages.

    I used HostHex a few months back. It was a good experience.
