000webhost.com sucks!
In 2010 we have created a site and have placed it on 000webhost. It was a site of our organization - movement "Venseremos" - a society of the international friendship. The site never was commercial. The address was http://venceremos.site11.com. All was normal, we accepted conditions of a free hosting, and the site was small - at the moment of blocking about 42 Mb. We had time to make an exchange of links with other sites, have registered it in different search engines. Recently our site has been closed without any warning. Having come into "members area", I have seen the short message:" Suspended (Scam.h.GeneratedSCAM-DSY-2 | /www/venceremos.site11.com/ukraina2014.html, )". No explanations, no offers to correct anything, inquiries in technical support are not accepted, at their forum I cannot be registered anymore, because I already "not a customer". Has written to them from other e-mail - no answer. There is no need to say that we did not post any "scam". What variants? The site was [read more...]

000webhost.com are very informal
I contract with 000webhost a free account 2 years ago and install a wordpress simple site
During all this time the web has been working as good as you can ask to a free hosting.
But one day the decided delete my account without previous advice with the justification that I used a lot of resources.
I think this is an excuse to force me change to a pay account.
I cannot recommend 000webhost they are not a reliable company.

Free service terminated after 18 months
000WebHost terminated my account after about 18 months of free service. They offered a paid service in its place. They did this without warning or reason. They would not respond to my questions about why they terminated my account. My site consisted of index.htm with some php code to enter user data into a DB and check for duplicates. Nothing even marginally questionable.

very disgusted with this shoddy place
WARNING: stay away if you value your sanity.

I set up an affiliate account with this place and couldn't log in with the web-builder after a few days even after changing my password, as requested, twice and waiting for a long time for it to take effect. Then I decided to send my constructive criticism using the complaint form. I was told, after typing it out, that I couldn't use the form if I had an account, so I went back and found out I had been logged out. I logged back in and couldn't find the place to send my ticket. So I DELETED my account and went back to use the complaint form.

The form said, (after I typed everything back in), that I still HAD AN ACCOUNT. So I decided to go to their forum. Halfway through the sign-up, I noticed that you need to enter your account details to be able to post to their forum..

Must be tough to be that incompetent.

For some odd reason I can't access my site. I can get to the control panel and into view and edit but I can't open any pages. I have let them know but still have not gotten a reply. I sent the first one May 6. They have yet to get back to me. I use the free plan but still expect better customer service. As far as I know i'm not violating any TOS. I did add to the site in Narch and would like to again but I need to be able to acess the site in order to check out any problems readers tip me off to.

000webhost.com is HORRIBLE.
I didn't expect much for *free*, however when they delete your website for a complete lie of a reason:

Suspended (Unmanaged or abandoned website that allows anonymous posting. MySQL database is overloaded with thousands of junk records. To get your account unsuspended please upgrade to our premium hosting.)

Um.... no it wasn't.

Fine, turn off my account, but LET ME GET MY DATA. They extort you into buying an account to get your data back, however even *after* you buy "premium" you'll just get some old stale data.

Don't use them, not 000webhost.com or hosting24.com

WORST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They will cancel your account for no reason and delete ALL files and data and not respond ever.

I did my backups, but their backup system is screwed and when you try to restore it, the encoding is wrong and the files are damaged. I lost one year of work AND I HAD BACKUPS!!!!!

They say they send warning emails, but that's a lie. They offer an autoinstaller but it doesn't work. I tried to get help in the forum but they don't fix anything, and I see that they've done this for years. Users complaining in the forums that their backups are lost, their accounts suspended. RUN AWAY!!!!!

000webhost: no cost, but also no website
It looked great: A website for free! Build it and was in use for 3 months. Suddenly it was gone and my account was blocked. Contacted the "support" desk asking for an explanation and restore of account and website. Response: terminated for violation of our Terms Of Service. No restore possible.
Further requests for information gave no information. Now one month later and still no information, no reason, no website...
My recommendation: go somewhere elso. Here you will get at the end what you're paying for: nothing.
Oh no, you will get something: frustration...

Nobody in the world should use 000webhost.com
Unreliable, lacking goodwill, unfriendly are the most kindly adjectives that I could find without harming manners.
In order to be helpful to humanity, they must be shot down as soon as possible.
Suddenly they can delete your websıte completely without any little warning. Their lie is :"Canceled for abuse. Too many mysquel". Dishonesty and lack of business ethics are their most prominent characteristics. They must be eradicated form internet world.

This company is a big big big liar. They seem to be free, but free of sense and dignity.
I was working hard into a joomla test, making a free subdomain on there. I made templates, i put all working, i transalated some non translated test, and all was going fine. But one day i got kicked out as a poor guy for using too many MySQL tables.

Horrible!
000webhost is absolutely horrible, I also got my site shut down without any warning at all and no chance to save my forum or database with 1000+ members due to me supposedly "sending 1000emails with 0 visitors" which is an absolute load of rubbish considering I didnt send a single email. There customer support also sucks when i tried contacting them about this problem, all i ever got from them was "Please upgrade your account to get your data back" which I definately wont be doing.

I have been using 000webhost for about a year now and actually really liked them and would have suggested them to anyone, Not anymore!

DO NOT HOST WITH 000WEBHOST!

000webhost.com is terrible
I've recently transfered all of my data from 000webhost to another server provider because of 000's unreliability. I also left because they would ban my IP after a few visits to my site and I would have to wait 24 hours just to see if my html/php code was working right. The support also sucks. Know what they told me? Either upgrade your account to premium or use a proxy server! Why in the world would I need to use a proxy server just to access my own site! DO NOT USE THEM! Find someone else because 000 sucks! It's the worst service I have ever used

Started Great but ends very Bad
I will tell you here the experience I had with 000webhost free service.
At first time it was great, I installed wordpress and a WP template for some friend that is photographer and wanted a website. All the features worked great, it was very faster the service. You don't have autoinstaller, but is ok because you can do it manually (it is not a big deal).
The bad things started later.
- Once we found we haven't the database. They moved web sites to other servers, so our database (mysql) was empty. After some support tickets we recovered it.
- The big problem was a few days ago when they suspended us the account because a term of service violation "Suspended (Account sent more than 1000 email messages and only gets 0 visitors per day. This overloads our mail server. If you need to send more emails and to get your account re-activated, please upgrade to our premium UNLIMITED hosting".

Free & Awesome
I don't understand all the terrible reviews of 000... but I guess it's all the people with the bad experiences that write reviews. After doing other free webhosts and suffering for years with terrible services I switched to 000 and so far, over a year later, I'm still with them.

They have the occasional downtime, but otherwise my site is always up, and I had an external server checking uptime for 3 months which got 99.64% on one server and 99.92% on the other. Very good for free hosting. My website loads quickly almost every time and I can put my own ads on it.

I've contacted support a few times where they've been moderately helpful and most things have been resolved in under 48 hours. Not bad, but could be better. Mostly the people on their forums are the helpful ones.

Feature wise it's good, but the auto script installer is still broken. I don't need that though. Just installed a photo blog by myself...

Looking forward to hosting for time to come with them. :)

I've used 000webhost for a while now. They are the fastest and most reliable free host around. I use them to test out scripts like Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. They let you create as many sites as you want, so I have one for each script I use.

My sites always load up fast. There is very little downtime. For the whole time I've been with them, one of my sites went down for a bit because of DOS attack. That's it.

They are lacking in features. They disabled the script installer and have no plans of bringing it back. And they refuse to tell the users that. Their website creator is very basic. I've tested it out, and it's not very good. But I don't use it anyways.

Don't know about their customer service, as I have never bother using that. Their forums seem to be a great help as they have some very knowledgeable users helping out.

Overall, this is a great site. And it's free.

Horrible Webhosting
I bought a domain from another website, decided to park it on 000webhost meanwhile I decided which host I was going to use. I mainly use my site to test college work, and working on my own video game. 000webhost does not allow you to use an external source to use MySQL querry to log in to your database nor manipulate your database. For me that's very important since I want to use my domain to host my game and also to be able to let users create accounts and log in whether its on the website or not. I have been designing the website, and programming it and I have had lots of errors because of 00webhost (using xampp on my localhost let's my code work perfectly) so yes I know is 000webhost's fault. Their costumer service is horrible and they will delete your account or site without giving you any head ups to back up your information and move it. I also had a VBulletin forum which I owned the licence I bought it, and they said it was nulled I disputed my account was closed. Anyways, [read more...]

I subscribe a free account. It was quite slow since the beginning (I installed wordpress), a lot of time php calls ends up to a blank page (I had to reload the page). The 1st Saturday and Sunday they were blocked by, they said, a DDOS attack. After few days (about 1 week from my signup) they suddenly suspended my account, without any notification: "Suspended (Unmanaged or abandoned website that allows anonymous posting. MySQL database is overloaded with thousands of junk records. To get your account unsuspended please upgrade to our premium hosting.)"
Of course they are all lies (except the last one). I only use wordpress EVERYDAY.

Terrible web hosting company!!
000Webhost.com you should be ashamed of your self, for the following reasons, you have terrible customer service by saying your on your own or just upgrade, false information like, 99% uptime when it is not even close to that, you don’t say anything about the Autoinstaller not working (See http://www.000webhost.com). The Autoinstaller has not been working for almost two years now, very limited on everything. I would NOT recommend this webhosting web hosting company to anyone, so I would give them an “F”. If you would to improve, I would reconsider recommending you again.

I can see my page, but everyone else sees a redirect message saying the site is under review, along with a hundred other sites they review each day.

The message says it will be up within a few hours.

Its been two weeks.

Nice features. Some are disabled including the 1 click installer. The message is they are looking for another installer.

Navigating from your database back to MySQL is impossible, there is no back button, you have to start all over, with sign in and get the Catcha phrase typed in right with your password.

Had many pass word error problems. I am not sure if its me or a faulty database.

Find another provider.

Great web hosting, Everything is great.

there are only 2 drawbacks:
1) It says "Server too busy, please reload" (but this only last 30 seconds)

2) If someone puts something ilegal to Google Adsense, the whole domain got blocked for Google Ads

This webhost is great but its down a lot even though it says its 99% out of the time that i have been on about 80% of the time its down. That may be due to traffic on my site. I like their cPanel as it is simple and easy to use. What i didnt like the most is that even with the upgrade you can only have 10 people connected to the database at the same time. If you were able to pay $5 dollars a month i would get the service but its actually like $8 if you plan to pay each month other wise you have to pay like 3 years ahead to actually get the $5 dollar price. Customer support was fine and pritty much everything else is good.

"Hello,

000Webhost reserves the right to cancel any account for any reason or no reason at all. Please re-read our terms

Very Truly Yours,
Alexandr"

This is the reason given why they suspended my free account, without even allowing me to get my data out and move somewhere else UNLESS I pay them. Which I won't, because their service is not only bad, it's expensive, and luckily for me I have a semi-recent backup. They are scammers, pure and simple, and you should stay away.

Since the first day I started looking for a free webhost for starter. I have found 000webhost. I tried it first and then I felt uncomfortable because Ddos attackers often attacked them. After a few month of using it I quit using it for 6 months and I started using it again but this time I face some problem the Admin block some of the users from making a new website. I try contacting the admin and it took me 7 weeks to get the new website validated. Thats a long time for a single website. well I have make a bad record of the website.
And Then again It is a Fast Free webhosting. A great sacrifice for a great free service

Absolutely horrible customer service. I tried in earnest to work with them regarding an error, and all I got was game-playing from both the helpdesk and whatever staff frequents their forum.

If you just have a static page I suppose they're good for that, but don't expect any support.

There are better options out there for the same price.

Pros: Free, tons of features
Cons: Sites are randomly slow, tons of FTP disconnects (mostly during the nights)

Don't bother putting a message board up. You'll get mysql errors up the ying yang and major slowdowns most of the time. only useful if you're sticking images and basic html on the site.

000webhost to put it simply SUCKS - I never really get to use their website because I couldn't even upload anything via FTP (WP folders), in the end I decided to just upload one index.html with a picture. And I even had problem with that! What a joke!
Autoinstaller is "broken" so you upgrade to paid account.
And reading other reviews I see that this webhost is run by incompetent, dishonest, sleazy liars trying to scam you out of your money.

Stay away!

Using the free option to run PHP and MySQL on a low traffic site.

Tech support has been thru the forum and has worked well. I seem to get too-frequent site shutdowns, being accused of mass mailing (which I do not do) but no actual deletion of content (yet). Site is normally re-activated same day when I notify that I am not mass mailing.

Any broken links on your site will redirect to 000webhost's flyer page.

So for my simple purposes it works well. 000webhost strongly advises back up ALL your content. Once you follow this you cannot complain about site deletion of a free host.

Now thinking about hosting my family photos albums on the paid option.

Nothing works.. especially the fantastico autoinstaller.. which has been disabled to prompt payment as opposed to the free service. The website builder dosnt work either and refuses to load

Spent a lot of time in my website, and my website get about 20-30 visitors per day. But they are steal my database and cancel the account for "Cancelled for Inactivity." And then I asked them for a back up they said they delete all file and the database. Finally, I just want to said stay away from 000webhost, they are big scam and steal your traffic. This is bad host I ever have. I would not recommend this host to anyone.

000Webhost is by far, the WORST webhost I have EVER seen in my 5 years in free hosting. Their autoinstaller has been down for almost a month, and they refuse to even give me a REMOTE IDEA of when I can use it again. I cannot add custom DNS records to my domains that I have hosted to them. And from the support tickets, the ONE person on support cannot even speak proper english. Props to 000Webhost for the HORRIBLE, UNRELIABLE, SHITTY hosting.

Also, from what I've been seeing in the other reviews, you get terminated if you criticize them, or upset them, which means I am backing up all my files right now before I get terminated.

Spent a lot of time and money on a web template and was busy designing it. Suddenly they deleted my page after only a few weeks and did not even have the common courtesy to send me an email or warning. Lots of down time while I was using them as well. So I agree entirely with Claude's review below. They treated me the same way.

Signed up month ago. Spent a lot of time setting up a little community web site.

Eventually, 000webhost just cancelled my account claiming that I did not follow their policy. The never sent a warning and they now refuse to tell me why my account was terminated.

I lost everything I did.

To my knowledge : I did nothing malicious to deserve that.

I have had my website with 000webhost ($0.00 web host) for about half a year now and they are good for the price. I have experienced about 4 hours downtime that I have noticed in that time. The good sides are they have good autoinstallers and easy to use features, which helped me get from newbie to moderate web designer.
The SERIOUS bad side to this is that their customer support is very bad and multiple times I have never recieved a reply to my query. Also the affiliate side is fixed, so it marks your signups as inactive even though they are perfectly active, and also after the 30 day minimum they sitll delete them.

So if you are wanting to start hosting a website, I wqould recomend this. If you want to so a lot of advanced features on your website and have an advanced host, I would go with someone else.

000webhost may be a free host but they allow MASSIVE security holes. All users have ROOT access and appear to have read/write access to the primary apache document root through php/perl/shell scripts. I do NOT reccommend using their service until they fix these security holes. Also, they run remote mysql servers that 3/4 of your connections to will be refused.

000Webhost is a joke! I signed up for a free account and planned to get a domain name and upgrade to a pay service. I wanted to run WordPress so I installed it and found that the new user registration emails weren't sending. I tested the mail() function in php (which they claimed to support) with a simple test page and found that it failed. I sent a helpdesk request in and they told me the problem is most likely the email froma free webhost is being blocked my the recipient server. I then tested the mail() function by sending an email from 000webhost to an account I created on 000webhost. Again the email failed. I presented this to them and the send me another copy of the original "canned" answer. I told they that this was absured, they can't be bloccking their own email accounts. I told them that there was a problem with their php config.

The next day I checked and got an email telling me the server my website was on had a problem with php mail and they were fixing it and that I [read more...]

BEWARE of 000webhost - they will steal and destroy your data
So, the features they advertise do look pretty good, but for your own sakes DO NOT FALL FOR IT. This "service" is a DISASTER from beginning to end, it is simply unbelievable that a "service" of this quality and this much contempt and disrespect to the customers is still around.

First of all, you'll be lucky if your uptime is 60%. Yes, half of the time you or your users try to access the site, it is down. Disks fail, servers shut down ... and on, and on and on ... The other half of the time, it is up, but you have to be REALLY patient to get the page loaded, it is so slow, I sometimes think they are just typing the content in by hand as it is loading. I was running a standard BB engine there, nothing fancy.

You think this is all? Oh, no, just wait, this is only the beginning. So, if you get some kind of traffic coming in (and I mean just SOME traffic - maybe, 100 hits per DAY, nowhere near real traffic), their puny [read more...]

Here I want to provide very serious review about 000webhost.com. My review is endorsed by hundreds of customers. 000webhost.com provides very unreliable free hosting. One you get their free hosting 000webhost.com will try their best to make you paid customer. 000webhost.com often let customers purchase domain by these tactics. By the pretext of single complain 000webhost.com will remove your websites. It is the time when there are hundreds of jealous competitors but 000webhost.com does not care about free customers.
000webhost.com told me that they will not remove any of my website if I become their paid customer. So, 000webhost.com free hosting is just a trap to make paid customers. 000webhost.com deleted my account without warning and hijacked my high traffic websites by giving their full page advertisement in place of my removed websites.

000webhost is a TERRIBLE host. One of the worst. I had a fairly popular site hosted there, and one day for no reason, it redirected to an error page. When I try to log in, it says my account was banned for not following their terms. I tried to contact them, but it said "we'll respond in 1 business day", but for a whole week, I never heard from them again. My database was lost, and if I didn't keep a backup, my files would have been gone too.

Basically, the people there NEVER respond to emails, contact, etc. Even if your site is shut down for no reason, they don't care.
I suspect that they ban any account that uses too much bandwidth (even though you have like a 100GB limit) (because another guy I know had the same problem with his fairly popular site), so they can keep their server "99.9%" up.
DO NOT USE 000WEBHOST! They're a scam.

Worst host EVER! Said they were reviewing my site for malicious or phishing content and that it would take 2-4 hours to complete. Sent a scathing email after 5 hours asking the status, never heard anything, created a ticket, never heard anything, tried to log on the next day and my site (all my work) was gone, couldn't log in, deleted my whole account. Had to send a comment to them with a different email because it stated I needed to log in with my account with them...Kinda' hard to do when they've deleted my account. Still have had NONE of my requests for information replied to. Site just disappeared overnight after I complained, fantastico never worked. horrible, horrible, horrible! RUN THE OPPOSITE OF WHEREVER 000WEBHOST IS, don't even get their free site if you're going to put ANY work into it, it'll be deleted! Moved to hostgator.com and have been happy ever since.

I ran an experimental WP blog on 000Webhost for a few months and at first I was pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately it was very short lived. The affiliate program is a scam and it seems even those who reach the minimum payout level are not being paid. Iost so many commissions to cancelled accounts and can see why now.

I contacted them about 159 hours of downtime. I was lied to again and again by incompetent help desk staff (all documented on one of my websites) and suddenly without warning my account was unceremoniously deleted along with all files and databases. Appalling.

This service is nothing more than a loss leader, and laughably not one they can even run properly. Surely the idea is to provide a service and impress users enough to make them want to upgrade once you have proved your mettle. Instead, this crowd treat users with contempt and if their completely unsubtle sales messages fail, be prepared to be kicked off the service with the tired old, same old same old, TOS [read more...]

Don't use this hosting, it will waste a lot of your time.
They apparently say they can remove your site for ,'Any or no reason' at notice.
This is crazy. I spend my time and effort on a site that can be terminated at a whim.
I was using their free hosting, and I accept that free often = crap.
My site was offline and online a lot of the time, but I couldn't afford paid hosting.

Then suddenly, and with no warning, they removed my site for an apparent TOS violation. I accept I may have made one, but they didn't give me an explanation.
I sent support requests, but that didn't work at all.
I posted topics on their forums which were promptly removed.
All I wanted was a back up.

I would not recommend this host to anyone.

I had an account there and I did a couple of websites. I needed some websites online to show to my clients templates to chose. Without a single notice ! they de activated the websites because of "inactivity" !!!! they only let me the free sub domain name that they give in case I want to re activate it. Everything else in the site was gone.

Don't put effort to make a site there. It can be lost without a single notice to back it up !

I was an affiliate of 000webhost, and I sent them several hundred clients. To date I have not been paid a dime. In fact, I have found many people online who have not been paid by them, and not one who has.

If you are an affiliate of 000webhost, please file a formal complaint against them at http://ic3.gov With enough complaints, they will be shut down, and potentially face charges.

Please also feel free to send me an eMial. I will let you know where I am in shutting them down, and would like to hear what you are doing to "close their doors".

Be careful of hosting any website of value with 000webhost.com. Use 000webhost.com for experimental hosting, but realize they terminate an account for "any or no reason" and without any explanation. Do not use their free domains, because of course these perish with your account.

000webhost.com closed all my free websites without reason and without notice and blocked all my communication with them. Two free urls, where I was promoting anti spyware and anti adware products were also blocked. I was unaware of the fact and was still paying for advertisements to attract visitors to the sites.

000webhost.com provided good hosting for a year. A little more downtime that I would like, but it's free, so I lived with it. They've canceled one of my sites twice for inactivity, even though I'm getting daily hits by statcounter. Their service is non-existant, you'll get a response on their support site in a day that won't answer your questions. Still, for free I lived with it. Now they have changed their included features:

As of May 2008, 000webhost.com NO LONGER PROVIDES CPANEL OR ANY E-MAIL ACCOUNTS ON NEW FREE HOSTING ACCOUNTS.

One of my site's e-mail still works, but I had to re-setup the other site after it was canceled for inactivity. The new site has no e-mail or cPanel. 000webhost's help says that cPanel and e-mail are only offered in their paid ($10/mo) hosting. Quite frankly, I'm moving on to another hosting service. I don't mind paying for hosting, but seriously, $10 per month to get 5 e-mail accounts and cPanel is too much!

I read somewhere that a person was not paid by the company. He said when they was going to pay him money he would receive a message that they need more time then 30 days.

After I made my 20 signups then I got the same message.

Try to sign up and see if it says 30 or 60 days.

This is what they wrote "Announcement: we have started to use 60 days signup verification procedure (we used 30 days signup verification system before). That is because we received lots of fraudulent signups especially from Vietnam and China and we need more time to check everything. So if you have referred user today, it will be credited in 2 months. We need these 2 months to protect us from fraudulent signups.

After several months of having received poor hosted websites. (poor speed and a lot of server down-time) I started their affiliate program. 5 dollars for every signup you bring in.

Their webhosting is free, yes, but their affiliate program is a SCAM.

And thus in short, 000webhost.com is A SCAM. They do not reply to support requests and simply suspend your affiliate account when you have 305 dollars to be paid out. Payments were postponed 3 times. Each time they has some obscure reason why payments were postponed. And at the end, your account will be gone. No way to claim anything, it will simply be suspended.

Don't fall for the 000webhost.com scam. They are scammers and don't pay out! They simply remove your affiliate account and you have no means of contacting them.
