What prompted you to launch a free hosting service?
There are many users who cannot afford premium hosting and domain name but they have talent to do something extra ordinary. Even I was not able to afford these services couple of years before but now we are going to help everyone who want to get their own website or blog.
How do you pay server and other hardware fees if you provide free hosting?
We recover our server costs from ads on our main website but we don’t place any advert on our client’s website. We are planning to remove ads from our main website and control panel soon as possible to serve our users better hosting experience.
Can you share with us (if you don’t mind) the investors who have funded your start up?
Actually there is not third party investor or something like that, we are independent.
What is the guarantee that the hosting will be free forever?
Well till we are able to recover our server cost and other expenses there is no logic to shutdown such a great project with more than 1.7 lakh active users.
Do customers be able to host their own domain?
Yes everyone is allowed to host their own domain name with us and if you transfer or register any domain name then your hosting resources automatically moved to unlimited instead of 25 GB Space and 250 GB Bandwidth.
Is it possible to run WordPress and other scripts on the free hosting?
Yes we support more than 120 scripts available on our Auto Installer; you can install wordpress in just one click. If you don’t have much knowledge about coding then you can build up your website with our simple Website Builder.
Can you share with us the differences between free and premium hosting?
To be frank you cannot compare free hosting services with premium hosting providers as they use excellent quality servers but hundreds of premium hosting provider out there using worst quality server and they are not even good as free hosting providers. Our service are better for low traffic websites and blogs and off course if you have good numbers of traffic then am sure you can generate enough money to buy premium hosting.
Do you provide free technical support as well for your clients who opted for free hosting?
Yes we do, our technical team is always ready to help our free clients. We reply each and every support ticket within 24 working hours with satisfactory answer, we believe in customer satisfaction that’s why we are one of the leading free hosting providers.
