1FreeHosting Expert Review- From the Editors

1FreeHosting.com started up in the year 2000 and bills itself as the only truly free professional web hosting company to offer their services on an ad-free basis. 1FreeHosting has two shared web hosting plans available: one free and the other paid.

Review

Sales

1FreeHosting does not take sales questions in any fashion, so the only information available about the company is what you can glean from their website. I was able to find most of the answers I needed online, though it still would have been nice to clarify a few things with a 1FreeHosting representative.

Setup

I signed up for an account from the company’s website. After entering my desired subdomain, I needed to confirm my account via email. When all was said and done, account activation was automatic and I was ready to roll in less than three minutes. My one and only gripe is that the 1FreeHosting website is littered with so many Google Ads that I often clicked the wrong link during the sign-up process. Aside from that, it was smooth sailing.

Billing

1FreeHosting does offer a paid hosting plan and those who invest in that have access to 1FreeHosting’s billing department and trouble ticket system. Support, including billing support, is molasses-slow! There’s no phone support available, so clients must wait for a reply from billing through the help desk. Two out of six of my questions were answered within 72 hours; the remaining four tickets were never addressed by 1FreeHosting at all.

Pricing

1FreeHosting.com offers a free hosting plan that can be hosted on a domain or subdomain. This plan includes 10 gigabytes of space and 100 gigabytes of bandwidth for nothing. Yep, it’s 100% free, and it’s one of the best free hosting plans we’ve seen online. Users needing more space can upgrade to the 1FreeHosting Pro plan which offers 15 gigabytes of space and 1,500 gigabytes of bandwidth, plus additional control panel features, for $23.83/year. Both plans, without a doubt, are a steal!

Reliability

My hosting server hardware was 100% reliable.

Help & Support

Free support is virtually non-existent for free hosting customers. There are a few knowledgebase articles on the 1FreeHosting website that highlight simple questions, but that’s it. Users can contact a trouble ticket system, but you’ll be charged a fee of $4.99 per question. I submitted three tickets, paid for support via PayPal, and received no answers of any kind. As they say, you get what you pay for!

Uptime

My uptime monitor indicated that 1FreeHosting maintained a 99.3% uptime rating.
