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!
All this for free:
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 a mailbox for 1000 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.
Your free hosting will be on exactly the same lightning-fast, rock-solid hosting platform as our paid hosting. It won’t be subject to any kind of throttling beyond the limits mentioned above. In the interests of full disclosure, here are the things that are not included with our free hosting package:
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.
You can’t set up FTP/SFTP accounts for transferring files, create scheduled tasks or provide SSH access with Google 2-Factor authentication.
You can’t manage IIS applications or use Classic ASP or ASP.NET (Windows Server)
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.
Free Hosting is offered with all domains registered with 20i. To get started, register a new domain or transfer an existing domain.
