THE PROS AND CONS OF FREE WEB HOSTING

Where’s the Catch?

  • Premium Hosting for Free?

    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?

  • Good for Small Sites

    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.

FULL DISCLOSURE

What You Don’t Get

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:
  • Subdomains

    You can’t create subdomains for your site, such as blog.your-domain.co.uk or shop.your-domain.co.uk

  • Website Builder

    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.

  • SSH Access

    Secure Shell network communication with Google-backed two-factor authentication is used to execute commands remotely over an insecure network.

  • Technical Support

    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.

THREE STEPS TO FREE HOSTING

How to Get the Best Free Web Hosting

  • Sign Up

    Sign Up

    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.

  • Register or Transfer a Domain Name

    Register or Transfer a Domain Name

    You will need an address for your website, so people can find you. So you’ll need to register a new domain or transfer a domain. Some domains are free to transfer, so you may not need to pay anything at this stage.

  • Activate your Free Hosting

    Activate your Free Hosting

    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.

Why we need a payment card

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.
