  1. good articel, but i don’t need e-mail account, i just want a space to run my own wordpress.

  2. It’s very good information that you have explained in this article, thank you so much sir.

  3. Googiehost not providing free hosting. When we register with free hosting, Googiehost never send an Email for email verification. So your free account can never activate. And other thing, you can’t open ticket for this query. Because there is no option for open custom tickets for clients query.

    • We are operational Monday to Saturday 11AM to 6PM IST and we perform manual verification if you think that its free hosting and any details will work then sorry this is not the free hosting platform for you. We accept only genuine people to keep our servers clean and working smooth as much as we can, auto approve system was getting 80% of fake orders so we just stopped doing that long back.

      If you think your account is not activated due to some error or you have any explanation do drop us an email at support[at] our team will check and approve your account within 24 working hours.

      • I think that person didn´t check his/her spam folder…
        That happened to me, and the verification mail was in the spam.
        Best wishes
