    Why would you use free hosting? You will put your site at risk. You can get cheap hosting for around 3-$5 a month so you dont have to worry about downtime, ads, bandwidth limits etc

    Free Hosting has never been a good idea. Most web hosts are now coming out with their own wordpress hosting services

    There are many flup going on, so it is better to avoid it.
    Still you want to try, get full bio data.
    I believe Precaution is Always Better than Cure.

    Before trying that Wordpress hosting company, just check their Reviews and all the details regarding with the company. As they provide 1 click install apps? that is more interesting to see whether they provide or not. That will make any sense to go with that kind of emails. Its all your choice. if you are really looking forward to host your WordPress then just google it once $1 Wordpress Hosting. you will find wordpress hosting companies starting 20 links. All the best

    IMHO, its totally time waste to use free hosting, there might be lots of limitation and of-course when you are on free host then get ready of data lose anytime....

    The OP received an email from a hosting site that is not even operational?

    Who does that?

    I can only describe such an "Unprofessional" stunt as absurdly TACKY!

    OP, do you SWEAR this is not your operation?

    I ask because you CLAIMED that you looked at the site? Or, you looked at the email? Please clarify what you looked at? They currently have nothing on the site but a "BRANDED" WHMCS package on the support page. Again, that move reveals we are dealing with a hosting amateur.

    Call me cynical but lately these types of posts are becoming more frequent on BHW.

    First thing: This website doesn't work. Second Thing: Don't waste your time searching free website hosting... Just don't.

    @BermanHost ... reviving 4 months dead thread? For what reason?

    @OP for free hosting you can start with https://www.000webhost.com but I would suggest you to go with cheap solution of GoDaddy or HostGator . Of course there is always Blogspot :D

    Free hosting of any site is not good and efficient.
    It provides very very very slow results in searching the site. You have to get the paid services of webhosting to get better results.

    You can try hostinger as free hosting for your test purpose.
    But better use Namecheap SSD hosting which comes cheaper for 1st year.
