Free Hosting


Free Hosting Package

It is often said there is no such thing as a free lunch. So what do most hosting companies really offer with so called free unlimited packages? In a nutshell very little. Their so called unlimited packages are next to useless, it is like offering the performance of a Porsche but with a vastly detuned engine inside it which makes it crawl. Hidden within the small print is a myriad of clauses which limit almost everything on the server making it next to useless.

FreeVirtualServers offers a truly transparent web hosting service

What you see, is what you get. There are no smoke and mirrors packages or hidden clauses within the small print. This web hosting package is available completely free of charge, with no server performance limitations. As long as you stick within our 50MB webspace and 75MB bandwidth, you can host with us for free for ever.

We offer our customers without charge a full website hosting experience backed with fanatical technical support (support tickets are answered within minutes not hours). It is like being on a continuous trial package that never ends and is great for anyone wishing to creating their first website (using our intuitive website builder), blog or e-commerce shop. Great for experimentation or honing your web design skills – why pay hundreds to a designer when you can design one yourself within an hour?

Note: With the Free Hosting package, you will be required to transfer your domain name to us or register a new one.
