We strive to maintain a stable free web hosting plan, but in order to make a sustainable business model we have to put a great amount of free users per free server. Thus, free hosting accounts get less server resources than the accounts on the premium servers.

Our free web hosing plan is suitable for: small hobby websites, sites that are still in development or low traffic charity/non-profit organization sites.

If you have a business site or another website of great importance we would strongly recommend using one of our premium hosting plans. Thus your site will be placed on a premium server with much fewer users hosted on it, which is different from the free servers where free accounts are located.

Your site will have much more server resources available and will receive the highest level of performance possible.
