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.

  • FTP/SFTP, Cron & SSH

    You can’t set up FTP/SFTP accounts for transferring files, create scheduled tasks or provide SSH access with Google 2-Factor authentication.

  • IIS, ASP and ASP.NET

    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.
