Most free website hosting services do not provide PHP or MySQL database support. However, is an exception. Free accounts allow for 2 unlimited size MySQL databases and they can be managed with phpMyAdmin.

While reviewing I had to keep on reminding myself that I am reviewing a free website hosting service. The truth is that I am spoiled with paid hosting accounts with premium features and support. So, I could not compare it with any other paid hosting solution. Keeping this in mind, I am impressed with what I got for nothing. It is my opinion that it is the best free website hosting solution available.

The absence of SSL support is a concern. This can leave any website asking for passwords or storing sensitive data vulnerable. But the bigger concern is a person trying to run an online shop or corporate website on a free website hosting service. I have read many reviews and I get the feeling that many people expect a premium solution for nothing. Remember the rule; you get what you pay for. And because I paid nothing for my account; every feature, every hour my website is live and every visitor to my now parked domain is a bonus.
