    Don't use free hosts for SEO, you can buy really cheap shared hosting plans everywhere. You can use hostwinds for $2-3 monthly.

    As the 2 guys above have said, free hosting is not the way to go. Paid hosting is best

    You shouldn't use FREE hosting if you expect to make money with your website. For more secure, you could pay a few bucks per month! ;)

    Free hosting is only good for learning purpose. I've used to use netfirms, 000webhosts, webs, .tk, .co.nr hosting and domains while I was new to this. For serious and professional work I'd suggest you to buy paid hosting, you can find many in cheap rates.

    We don't do free, but we are certainly close.

    We have Cpanel accounts that use MariaDB (A drop-in replacement for MySQL) which basically functions the same but is faster. We also use PHP 5.4 as well as its required for some of our billing softwares. We also have a 1 Gigabyte APC Cache in full effect as well as many other high end features, SSD, Apache using Event Driven Architecture, also PHP is connected by FPM directly to Apache.

    I don't use free hosting, so I cannot tell from experience but apparently awardspace.com is the best free host. No ads ofc.

    you can also go with 000webhost.com

    For result oriented service - don't go for free.
    There are hosting services available for minimal charges of $5 and served you well.

    Echoing everyone else that you should try to stay away from free. Classic case of you get what you pay for.

    I was also looking for the free hosting for learning seo stuffs.
    But, it ain't worked. One of my colleague mentioned about a cheap hosting $1/month (www.prewebhost.com) and right now I'm working with them. Using since past couple of months and results are good so far.

    I think Free web hosting services or companies are not reliable. So, if you want to up your website of increase your online business sale then you must pay some money to get best hosting services. Very helpful source given below.

    I wouldn't use free hosts for SEO, you could end up with a lot of problems. I personally would look into cheap shared hosting which is available almost anywhere for very little.
