Is Free Web Hosting Reliable?- Part 1

Thursday, June 15, 2006

The past few weeks, I've been working around a couple of websites and blogs. I loved Wordpress because of its functionality and freedom to modify it and paste in a couple of ads in there, the only problem is, only self host blog has the ability to be modified. To look professional, I have a paid webhosting which is hosted by some technology company in US. Of course I bought it from a local reseller because I paid the webhost reseller in my local currency (Ringgit Malaysia). My price? Well, about RM60 per year or around USD15 per year. That is not a lot of money, isn't it?

Recently, my paid US webhosting had a couple of downtime and I don't like that since I sometimes constantly online with the webhosting using my FileZilla FTP. So, I tried to find free webhosting which can host php along with a free MySQL database and a subdomain feature. At first I did found a couple of them, I register to a few of them actually. Most of them went down in a couple of days but I find that one of them is http://www.php0h.com is quite reliable in term of uptime plus they give you a huge 200MB space. The downside is, they put an Adsense banner ad on top of each page that you load.

At first, I don't really mind the ads because you have to give credit to your free webhosting owner since they provide the infrastructure for your website. You just build the pages and eat up the bandwitdh. My first attempt was to install wordpress on the free webhosting. The installation went fine and the speed wasn't too bad after all. However, after a while I find it rather annoying the ad keeps seeping in even in my small windows. It penetrates the windows to edit HTML and I couldn't save what I've done. It's a shame..You can read and see what I've built at Ash Web Creation Blog. Oh well, I'm abandoning this page for a new one.

I now found a new webhosting which I'm still testing out. I'll give you the link and review for you to read and probably sign up for one for your Learning CSS and Web Authoring journey.

P/S: I created Ash City | All About Ashrufzz page. Tell me what do you think about it? ;-p
