You might have seen a lot of reviews of free web hosting providers in recently. This is because we are running a series of reviews these days, to help webmasters find the best web hosting service. And adding another review today we are discussing free web hosting of Host-Ed.net. One very special thing about this host is that all its servers run on green energy, so indirectly you will be supporting and using clean energy without making a burden on the natural surroundings.
Host-Ed.net has won many awards for its quality service, but you might be wondering is it really worth? So let’s find it out.
Domains and Sub-Domains
If you plan to host multiple sites or create multiple sub-domain sites, then you will certainly want to know what this host has to offer you. Well, if you are planning to host top-level domains then you are considering the right host. Host-Ed.net allows up to 3 top-level domains and 1 sub-domain to be hosted on a single account. Aspirers of multiple sub-domains might not be that lucky but the 3 top-level domain hosting feature is something that many other hosts don’t offer.
Disk Space and Bandwidth Transfer
In this aspect also, Host-Ed leaves behind many popular free web hosting providers. It offers 1GB of disk space and 10GB monthly bandwidth transfer. Many hosts don’t allow more than 250MB of disk space and 1 GB of monthly bandwidth transfer.
With this much space and bandwidth, you can have a good website and will be able to easily make it to the end of the month (if you don’t have too many visitors).
Scripts, CMS and Databases
After domain, disk space and bandwidth transfer the next thing to consider is the power that the server gives to you. You can host many databases but without reaching the 10MB limit. If you are not planning to host a blog then this much space is more than enough for you.
Host-Ed.net gives its users a dozen scripts and CMS to choose from. You can install any script according to your need with the one-click installer.
When I first read that Host-Ed provides its users cPanel to manage websites, I really couldn’t believe it. So I went on to do research and I found that some features are limited in the free service and if you want to enjoy all the features then you will have to pay. However, the panel is really great; it is fast, secure and very easy to use.
This is the only area where Host-Ed.net lacks behind. Free users don’t get any kind of support and without support, managing websites can be a tough task. If you face any issue you can only lodge a ticket and wait for a guy at their centre to reply.
Doing the background research I found everything great except the customer service. The disk space and bandwidth transfer limit is really appreciable. You get all the required tools to create a nice looking professional website.
However, you might get frequent server downtimes if you are to use heavy scripts as only 2% of CPU usage is allowed to a single account.
HOST Ed is by far the most generous free web host with limitless sites, limitless storage, limitless bandwidth, and five email accounts. It also delivers an automatic SSL on all domains and includes a free site builder with templates. That said, HOST Ed is one of the smallest professional-looking hosts I looked at, with a poorly written website and enough nebulousness that I miracle how limitless its limitless offerings actually are. Unless you think you essential a lot of database space, I endorse going with a different free host.
Host-Ed Web hosting company gives you One free plan and two other paid plan.
