    Hey everyone!

    I own a domain on namecheap and want to point it to a free webhosting. (no redirect / frame)

    Which cpanel free webhosting can you recommend? I dont really care about seo for this one (I wouldnt go for freehosting if I were) and I wont have much traffic (500 - 5k / month maximum)

    1x mysql & ftp needed

    What would you suggest me?

    Hi!

    I wouldn't suggest you to use a free webhosting since they have very low limitations on CPU/RAM usage. They can also terminate your account without any warning.

    You can use 2freehosting.com, their servers are good, no ads and it can handle 500-5k UV / Month. Hostinger is an other option but their resource usage limitation will kill your site (error 500).

    If you're going to use Wordpress, get a cheap shared account or buy a NAT VPS, that will cost <$5 per year (PM me if you go with that, I may have some hosts to recommend).

    If you're site is just HTML/CSS, why don't you host it on Google drive or Dropbox ? An other option is using/editing blogger to fit your needs.

    Thanks!

    I think I'll go with 2freewebhosting.

    I am not going to use WordPress and I am also using some php, but nothing which needs great performance.
