WordPress is probably the best blogging software in the world. There are thousands of reasons for people choosing WordPress as their favorite blogging platform. Some of them are its customization options with themes, plugins, and its search engine friendliness. I think you know about WordPress.com allowing free/ad supported hosting of our domain. However, there we cannot use our own advertisements, install custom themes, plugins, etc. So if you want to take the full control of what appear in your blog, then purchasing your own online web space is recommended. There are commercial web hosting services that charge from 2$ per month for unlimited WordPress hosting. Another option is to start with a free web hosting service and later move on to dedicated hosting. Here in this article we discuss few popular free WordPress webhosting services that allow WordPress and php hosting.

 Free WordPress hosting services

WordPress blogging software requires a PHP enabled web server. The free services listed  below comes with the basic requirements to host a WordPress blog. Some of them have cPanel installed and others not. It’s very easy to install WordPress on Cpanel supported web hosts with Fantastico.  Others should follow the manual WordPress installation process.

Free WordPress hosting services :

Free PHP web hosting from 000WebHost ( Update: Beware ): Best  and most popular among free WordPress and PHP web hosting services. They offer completely ad free custom domain hosting services.

000WebHost Features :
Fantastico auto installer :

It installs WordPress,  b2evolution, Support Logic Helpdesk, phpBB2, SMF, OS Commerce, ViPER Guestbook, Coppermine Photo Gallery, PhpWiki, PHPauction, WebCalendar on one click  ( auto installer is currently under maintenance ).

Update: I have been watching this for a while. Their auto-installer is always under maintenance, and I believe that it’s a trick to fool new users. You will need to upgrade to a better plan to get Fantastico and other control panel options. However, you can install WordPress using the manual installation methods.

1.5 GB hosting space and  100GB data transfer.
Advanced control panel.
FTP support.

Zymic PHP hosting Features:

PHP (latest version ) , MySQL database and PHPmyadmin support .
Control panel
Unlimited domains
FTP access.

99.9% uptime
Statics and support .
Fantastico auto installer for WordPress and other scripts is not available.

In each case you need a domain name, and the Name Servers of the domain pointed to 000webhost or Zymic web servers.

It is not recommended to host a professional WordPress blog on free web hosting services. The resources are being shared between  thousands of free hosting accounts. Therefore, it would make the website slow and lead to unavailability at several times. Sometimes the providers will cancel the hosting account that  consumes large system resources.

Update: 000webhost is the real scam web hosting company. They delete websites without any warning. Their affiliate program is the best example of scam on the internet.  I have been a part of their affiliate network and referred many users to their site. They but canceled my account after requesting for a payout. Search ” 000webhost scam” in Google for more details.

So I advise you to host your website in any of the reliable webhosting providers like Dreamhost and Hostgator. They offer promo codes  and discount coupons for the first time customers so that you can start with WordPress hosting at small investment. Reliable web hosting is recommended  if your website and files are anything important to you. Alternatively, register a domain and use with the  free custom domain feature Google Blogger.
