Free web hosting


Thought I would share a nice little gem I stumbled across. Many times, I’ve wanted/needed some web hosting for a personal project or for one of my side projects at work. Now, of course I could run something off my home machine, but sometimes you want better up-time, sometimes you want a more permanent home for your content, and sometimes you just are just tired of maintaining a web server.

Now, while the name seems amateur-ish, stick with me. Check out 000webhost (had to link to Google results as WordPress thinks I’m trying to make money as an affiliate). I know, I know, the name’s wierd, but check out what you can get with a FREE account:

  • 1500 MB of Disk Space, 100 GB Bandwidth per month
  • Host your own domain (http://www.yourdomain.com) or buy a domain from 000webhost
  • cPanel Powered Hosting
  • Over 500 website templates provided
  • WYSIWYG website builder
  • Five free POP3 Email accounts with a Webmail frontend
  • FTP and Web based file manager
  • PHP, up to 2 MySQL databases, Apache webserver
  • 99% uptime
  • Weekly backups
  • Cron capability
  • htaccess protected directories

Obviously there are some benefits to having a premium account, but I was really impressed with what you can get for free. Anyway, just posting this in case anyone might find it useful.
