A few years ago I came across a free web host provider, and have been using them ever since. Now, as some of you know, I have my own technology blog called Bauer-Power, and that is hosted on Blogger. I love Blogger because it’s easy and free. Plus it’s owned by Google, so that means that the servers that it’s running on are fairly rock solid. The problem with Blogger though is it’s not as versatile as other blogging platforms like WordPress.

For you guys looking to move over to WordPress like here at AskTheAdmin, you probably want to go with your own web host. What if you don’t have any cash yet? I mean it takes a few months for that Adsense revenue to kick in right? Well don’t fret, I have a solution for you. It’s a free webhost that supports PHP and MySQL. Guess what? That is exactly what WordPress runs on jack!

The provider is called 000Webhost, and here is a list of their free hosting features:

  • 1500 MB of Disk Space, 100 GB Bandwidth000webhost free web hosting
  • Host your own domain
  • cPanel Powered Hosting
  • Over 500 website templates ready to download
  • Easy to use website builder
  • Free POP3 Email Box with Webmail access
  • FTP and Web based File Manager
  • PHP, MySQL, Perl, CGI, Ruby.
  • And many more…

I personally use them for my custom Ninja themed URL shortening service, and I also set up a test WordPress blog so you can see what I’m talking about. You can have unlimited websites under your account as well, so if you want to be the next Internet mogul, you can get started on 000Webhost.

Know of any other free web hosting providers? Are they better than 000Webhost? Why? Share with the rest of the class in the comments!
