Best Free Web Hosting Sites (2019) – Free web Hosting WordPress

The popularity of free web hosting has exploded in recent years.
And it’s easy to see why – with all the different expenses required to run a successful website, it’s tempting to try and cut costs wherever possible to stay within your budget.

And what’s more budget-friendly than free web hosting, right?
Well, not exactly…
Free web hosts aren’t always what they market themselves to be. Tight restrictions they place on bandwidth, storage capacity, server speed, and uptimes can make your new site all but unusable.
But don’t worry… we’ve done the heavy lifting for you. In this review, we compare 7 free hosting options to help you find the best fit for your site.

Best Free Web Hosting Sites (2019)



After nearly 15 years in business and a client base of more than 29,000,000 people spread across 178 countries, Hostinger has become one of the free web hosting industry’s most dominant players.
Ok, so they aren’t technically “free”…
… But at only $0.80/month for their limited shared hosting plan they’re still one of the most budget-friendly web hosts on the market.
With average load times of only 345ms (the second best we’ve ever recorded), they’re also one of the fastest.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Even their most basic plan comes armed to teeth with a whole bag of goodies including:
  • 1 MySQL database
  • 1 FTP user
  • Access to their website builder
  • One click install of WordPress or other CMS
  • A free domain name for 1 year
  • 24/7 customer support (seriously, it’s one of the best)
  • 100GB of Bandwidth and 10GB of Disk Space
  • One free email account
And, if the needs of your site outgrow the limits of their basic hosting plan, you can always upgrade to their premium shared hosting plan and get unlimited websites, email accounts, and bandwidth (not to mention 2x the memory and weekly backups) for less than a pack of gum.
With some of the fastest speeds we’ve ever seen and uptimes on par with those of HostGator’s Cloud, Hostinger is the best “almost free” host that we’ve ever reviewed.


$0/mo – But 1 Hour Offline Each Day

“Zero cost web hosting with PHP, MySQL, cPanel, and no ads!”.
That’s the marketing slogan of, Hostinger’s partner company and one of the top-rated free web hosts in the world.
Now, if it sounds just a little too good to be true – IT IS!
Yes, 000WebHost offers impressive speeds (especially for a shared free host) and their no-ads policy makes for a much cleaner and friendlier user experience.
Unfortunately, these two factors alone simply aren’t enough to compensate for the myriad of other limitations.
Despite having admittedly impressive speeds, with such horrible uptimes and heavy limitations, we cannot recommend 000WebHost to anyone unless it’s an absolute necessity.
Most Unlimited Features

With only 200,000 customers, InfinityFree is a relatively small player in the web hosting game.

Despite their small client base, they’ve managed to carve out a reputation for themselves as the most feature-rich free web host on the market.
Even though you will undoubtedly experience some problems with their service, this reputation is well earned.
InfinityFree comes with a free SSL certificate with all plans (a very nice bonus), no front-end ads a free CloudFlare CDN, 10 email accounts, 1 FTP account, unlimited bandwidth and storage space, and 400 MySQL databases. It’s safe to say that InfinityFree gives you a big bang for your unpaid buck.
But when you skim through their terms of service and acceptable use policies, things start to get a little more “interesting”.
Although we are still running our own tests to gather more concrete data on the real uptimes and load times of InfinityFree’s hosting, a perfunctory glance at the other reviews around the web suggest they fall squarely into the box of “passable but not exceptional.”


No Email Accounts Included

With more than 10 years in the free hosting game and the promise to provide a  free “full web hosting suite” that includes unlimited bandwidth and storage, PHP, MySQL, cPanel access, and one-click installation for over 30 third-party applications, x10Hosting sounds like something straight out of a frugal geek’s dream.

However, as seems to be the case with every free web host, x10Hosting makes some pretty bold claims that it simply cannot backup (as well as the data on your website).
After briefly checking other web hosting forums and review sites we found countless customer complaints of “inexplicably” deleted websites, incompetent customer support and unusable features, confirming our sneaking suspicion that x10 doesn’t quite live up to their lofty promises.
