In-depth review

Pricing and its structure

As already mentioned, it has a premium plan which starts as low as 3.49$ a month while Its business plan starts at 7.49$/ month. Its sister company, which goes by the name hosting also provides the premium plan which also is a bang for the buck; if you sign up for the premium services, then you will get a free domain accompanied by web development assistance as required. Unique at this price quote, since you get support even for any development issues.

The premium plan is indeed wrapped with surprises since they also sport a live chat assistance feature which should make this an alluring deal for most customers. Their tech support is also very co-operative even when your website has to migrate to a different host or their server. And the best part is that this service is free of any money.

Disk space

It offers up to an endless 1000 MB of disk space along with 10GB worth of unmetered bandwidth. It is quite handy for bloggers who are starting out and don’t want to invest much. A simple blog post gathers as much as 2MB which gives any blogger a lump some of space to work on and still have space for more. The offer is very generous and thoughtful when it comes to maintaining the equilibrium between services and features. Also, one can host up to two websites also get a domain, all these just under their free plan.

Instant Backups

Digital data is quite vulnerable to crashes and other faults, so it is quite obvious that data backups are necessary, just to be on the safer sides of anything. While creating a website with 000webhost, the backup of any data is done automatically since this is a default feature of them. You can restore the backed up data with just one click of a button and that too with ease. The control panel lets you create instant backups anywhere and anytime you want to. It backs up any data that goes to the website created along with the MYsql database. Backup is something which other web hosting services don’t provide, but 000webhost can do that which again makes itself a competent choice for anyone.

cPanel Support

They offer the updated version of panel even on their free hosting plan. Along with that comes 100+ auto install scripts which is indeed a generous effort since it is a free plan. Boxbilling is also added which is an invoicing system made out of PHP, and that helps you to invoice any client or customer. Still, if you are not satisfied with the auto-install scripts, you can get tons of other free web building tools along with tons of templates to choose from. They can be used by simply dragging and dropping which makes it very user-friendly.

WHY WOULD I RECOMMEND HOSTINGER TO EVERYONE?

Ad Support

Free hosting services often don’t allow customized ads to run from their hosted website, but you can run your web and on the free plan. 000webhost never displays their ad even on their free plans since they allow users to run their own. The intention here is to convert these loyal and lovely users into premium users once they start converting these free of cost convenience into money.

Email Support

Email support is important, and they provide ad even in their free plans with the inclusion of additional features like hosting from google platforms, support of mail function in PHP version which means that mass email can be sent to anyone who has subscribed to your site. This feature is monitored but is surely a great addition to the arsenal of other features.
