I've heard bad reports as well. I've been with Byet free hosting myself. When I started with them around 2010 or somewhere then, they were OK, but eventually I had problems. It was a very crude cpanel setup. Anyway, there is so much of good quality shared hosting available, one doesn't need to be with places like that.Kreesher said:I am having real issues with the byet free hosting, that one is always down with the error 502 bad gateway, much more unreliable. That is also why I saw in a forum the Gigarocket could be a good solution even if I couldn't test it yet, but the soon I have it I will complete the feedback here as well.

I just took a peek now and notice they've merged with Hostinger. Maybe I should check them out again. Would be interesting how the marriage is working out and who knows maybe the cpanel is more up to date
FSAVA said:000webhost is pretty trash indeed. However, it is very difficult to find "free" hosting that is much better, besides this community.
For instance, I tried FreeHosting.io and the experience has been terrible. Thet have very picky filters on the FTP upload that will suspend your account and lead to a support representative to tell you "will be glad to host the blocked files if you upgrade to our paid service". Slow uploads, older technology, etc, etc
I need to test a website before actually investing money on it and pay for hosting, but it turns out impossible with most of the free companies out there.
