    Hello

    I am trying to host my wordpress site on a free host.

    basically, here is the story: I do have hostgator baby package, or whatever they call it. it's the package that allows multiple domains. but I will be spamming this site like crazy, and I dont want to risk losing my hostgator account. that's why for the time being, I want to host it on a free host.
    I have been trying all the free hosts on pages 1 and 2 of google and they all suck. for some, ftp doesn't work. it just doesnt connect. for some, ftp works partially. you start uploading your files, but then the upload stops. some, mail function doesn't work, so contact form will not send a message.
    can you guys recommend a free host that doesn't suck? I have wasted probably 20 hours of my time over this.

    All most all free hosting services have php restrictions so alway one or another plugin doesn't work. If you are willing to use only blog without plugins it might work.

    Bite the bullit and get another cheap hosting account. Blue Host is affordable. All cheap hosting sucks. Either too limited, functions don't work, or they are down half the time.

    You can probably get hosting for like $2 a month that won't have any restrictions.... Well, not as many lol.

    As said above, most free hosting sucks.

    Apparently my Jr. VIP just ran out. Must fix.
