I exercised my Google-Fu. First I did a search for free webhosting, and came up with some 000webhost place that said they had cPanel, which shocked me for a freebie - and when I checked them out further, everybody complained about them being BS. Their site looked scammy too, and I couldn't find a single decent review.
So then I updated my search, thinking maybe it's NOT too good to be true - and searched:
free shared hosting cpanel
You guys came up #6 in the results, below a couple of 12341241234124xyFREEFREELOOKATMEE!!! sites - and under a company I saw a long time ago that I seemed to remember not liking for some reason - I think it was monthly posting requiremnts? Some months I don't have time to post.
I was expecting to not find anything worthwhile, monthly post requirements, or ads - I do NOT do hosting company ads - I want to be able to show things I'm working on to clients ... and I saw your link - GigaRank: Free cPanel Web Hosting | PHP & Mysql | No Ads
No ads? PHP and MySql? cPanel? I had to check it out - then I saw the free VPS and was floored. I thought certainly there was a scam somewhere. So I checked, and there was no signs of a scam. I saw that it's post based, but it's only an initial requirement. I figured I'd give it a whirl.
So far I'm impressed! One thing though - you offer very reasonably priced hosting, but I couldn't find paid VPS. I might have bought that on the spot.

They have their own versions. I am looking for the genuine article. Looking forward to discovering the cpanel that comes with Gigarank.
It's almost identical to a hosting provider I was paying for - that I had to pay a year up front for ... The only difference is that I get fewer sites. Basically I was paying around $100 once / year and got tech support - which they did a good job of, but ... $100 bucks for something I never use ... I'd rather pay $3 / month for these guys paid hosting and get basically the same thing except monthly billing too :)
