Our completely free website hosting uses the same platform as our standard hosting packages. The same lighting-fast speed and reliability is guaranteed – but for zero pence!
Do you want to start a risk-free web business, project or blog? Would you like more of your charity’s income to go to the cause? Then host your site on the best UK web hosting platform around, free for life.
We dislike unwanted ads as much as you do – so we promise you’ll never get them. With 20i’s free hosting package, you avoid the pop-ups, links and banner ads that other free hosts might insist upon.
Our free hosting isn’t just for charities and not-for-profits. We believe that everyone has the right to free, fast and reliable hosting. It’s offered with all domains registered with 20i.
Our easy-to-use My20i control panel makes website management a breeze. Manage files, set up databases and emails, register domains or install free software. Everything you need can be controlled from your phone, tablet or desktop.
You can choose from 70+ popular free apps including WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Magento, and OpenCart, and install them in seconds.
We know it sounds too good to be true…
There is a reason why we provide free hosting for your website. In the end, we’re a business, and – while we love to help – we do need to make ends meet.
So we give away our hosting in the hope that it might lead to you spending with us, if your site is a success. It’s as simple as that.
It’s like an unlimited free trial of our high-spec, high speed hosting. If your site expands and becomes popular, you can upgrade to one of our paid Web Hosting, WordPress Hosting or VPS packages, which will provide you more freedom and resources.
So, is our free hosting account right for your website?
If you have a large, busy and successful website, then our free hosting may not be right for you. If you’re starting a new site, or your current site isn’t large and popular, then you should consider it.
You get 10 GB storage space – which equates to over 1000 content-heavy pages. You get mailboxes for 100 email addresses, which should be more than enough for most uses. You also get a 1 GB MySQL database which is large enough to use in 99% of data-focused websites.
The 250 MB monthly bandwidth limit is generous. This equates to over 7500 hits a month. That estimate is based on the average of how much each visitor downloads across our platform, so your mileage may vary.
You can’t create subdomains for your site, such as blog.your-domain.co.uk or shop.your-domain.co.uk
Our drag-and-drop website builder is off limits. However, you still get access to 70+ free website tools which can be installed in one click.
Secure Shell network communication with Google-backed two-factor authentication is used to execute commands remotely over an insecure network.
While 20i’s legendary customer support is not available, you do still get access to our comprehensive support database.
Otherwise, you get the same features as our paid packages, subject to the limits stated above. For more detail on what comes with our free hosting account, please view our full table of features.
There’s no charge to sign up to 20i’s award-winning hosting. Once you’ve confirmed your email, you can take our My20i control panel for a test drive. My20i works perfectly on any device: phone, tablet or desktop.
Add the free hosting package to your domain. You’ll get fast shared hosting for one site, including email, generous SSD storage and enough bandwidth to run a small business or blog. All without ads and free forever.
Even though there may be no need to make a payment, we still need to take credit or debit card details. This is for security: 20i is committed to combating internet fraud. It also helps prove that you’re over 18 – which you need to be to own a domain.
Try them, you won’t look back.
I was honestly amazed at how good 20i have been, I’ve been working in IT for 20+ years so it’s not easy to surprise me but they did, from the ease of administration with their panel to the speed & helpfulness of their support team I’ve been truly blown away.
We were only going to migrate our wordpress site but were so impressed we’ve consolidated our e-mail from MS Office 365, our domains from go daddy & our hosting from a 3rd party provider with the result that we’ve saved a small fortune (& as a small business thats important) & the website is running much much faster.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.
