So, my website got hacked when it was with another company, and Hostking, especially Shakira, really came through for me. Shakira sorted out the hack super quick, and her help was top-notch. Because of that, I decided to move all my websites to Hostking. The team made the whole switch hassle-free. Big thanks to Shakira and the Hostking crew for their awesome help – they've definitely got my trust. I totally recommend them!

Free Web Hosting FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about free website hosting services.

The primary and clear distinction lies in the expense. Despite being a complimentary service, it does have its restrictions.

With free hosting, you're allowed to host a restricted amount of websites, and it includes limitations on disk space and bandwidth. These restrictions are implemented to ensure fair access to the service for everyone. Free hosting offers an ideal environment for learning. It enables you to test, program, and create without needing to invest any money.

Conversely, paid hosting services usually provide greater functionality, additional features, and significantly higher limits on data and bandwidth. They offer a more professional and adaptable experience overall.

There are primarily two methods for transferring files to your complimentary web hosting service:

The initial method involves utilizing the browser-based file manager. This feature enables you to browse, upload, and remove files from your web server. It is accessible via your control panel.

The alternative method is through the use of FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol. FTP services provide a convenient means to handle your files in a manner akin to using a file manager.

Hostking is an entirely FREE platform, offering its services at no cost! Just complete the sign-up form, and you're all set to make your mark on the internet! After that you welcome to upgrade to paid plan. All you have to do is login to your account once a month.

Regrettably, that's not possible.

But, if you're interested in utilizing a top-level domain, you have that option. You can take an existing domain from a different registrar and transfer it to your free web hosting account. Or, you can register a new top-level domain with us and use that instead.
