FEATURES 


 The free hosting plan of 000webhost.com includes a number of features which are really useful for users. This was my first choice when I entered to hosting my site and hosted my domain. It was to host word press and i couldn't use the installer of word press.

The main feature is that 000webhost.com provides Auto installer for 10 scripts.

No banner ads or hidden ads. So that users can use this hosting plan absolute free of cost and earn money through adds.

 1500 MB of disk space may not attract you but 100 GB data transfer per month will.

The users will also get 5 Add on domains and 5 sub domains.

Custom error pages for website for free. The 404 errors are avoided using this custom error pages.

The directories are also password protected.

5 email addresses including IMAP support with web mail support. But SMTP support is disabled.

 2 MySQL databases with 1 FTP account.

 Simple site builder with PHP support.

Backups and cron jobs are available. No limit to file size for uploading.

Decent control panel is a good thing but sometimes you will get an error like “we are updating the system”. That means you are not going to use this tool.

 LIMITATIONS 


 The free hosting plan does not include free domain name such as yourdomain.com or .org. You will not get any assistance in installing scripts according to their policy.

 No live chat and no support through phone- How they are expecting to get newbie customers without support from representatives?.

ONE TOUCH SEO RATING 


The users usually choose free hosting plans to host their own domain. So 000webhost should upgrade the free plan giving the opportunity to add their domain to hosting account and give some type of support to users like support tickets. Before anyone attempt to host their domains at free hosting plans kindly take a look at Google's discussion forum which can be accessed here- Thread 

 Avoiding that facts SHP ME THIS gives a 6.5 rating out of 10 for 000webhost.com.
