    I took 000webhost, and now I am waiting for 5 days for my domain to be verified. Also sent them 3 emails, and noone answered. Very poor customer service. Gonna change host.

    Thinking about: freehostia.com or 1freehosting.com ?

    After 5 days 000webhost accepted my domain, then I find out that WordPress installer is "not working", and they don't know when it will be repaired. I moved to Freehostia and set everything in a day.

    Too bad Freehostia is not accepting Outgoing connections for free host accounts so I cant use CPA networks without actually paying for host :-/

    Always be sure to remember:

    You get what you pay for.

    Hosting a website comes cheap nowadays, some hosts are even offering $5/month. Although I always recommend decent priced ones to my clients, cheap but paid ones are always better then free ones. No insta-shutdown of account due to unknown reason, no downtimes with no ETA.

    Just my $0.02

    In the end I choose 1FreeHosting. They don't have customer support as fast as Freehostia, but they allow outgoing connections.

    I have to update this thread. After my site worked perfectly for a month on 1freehosting.com, they started giving me message too often:
    And my site is having 200-300 unique visits only... AVOID IT !!!

    With the amount of dirt cheap paid hosting, no reason not to use one of them. I have used a Hostwinds for two years with great success for $5 per month. And HostGator is still cheap as well.... Don't put all of your effort into a site and then watch it disappear.

    You can try the serversea hosting for this kind of package and i hope you will save your time and money as well because for 5 to 10 pages website packages are available on very cheap price.
