Best Free Web Hosting 2020: A penny saved is a penny earned. Saving money is great, but not at the expense of your website. You want to maintain great speeds and up-time or your website and sales WILL suffer. So I’m going to show you the current top free web hosting services this year.
We’re not gonna waste your time with the usual suspects. You’ll read all over the internet about 000Webhost, FreeHosting.com, 5GBFree, Freehostia, Byethost, etc. We’ve had terrible experiences with all the free hosts, ranging from a number of problems including:
- Unable to upload old site
- Unable to download new site
- Website almost always down
- Unable to make backups
- Website so slow that it’s unusable
- Not enough space
- Not enough resources (website crashes)
- Emails not working
- Website deleted for no reason without warning
- Account deleted for no reason without warning
Honestly, I hate writing about free hosting because of all the memories it brings back with terrible experiences but there’s always someone that needs to save a bit of money so I’ll tell you what works.
There are only 2 that are worth anything right now:
Groovefunnels (free hosting for 3 custom domains with this link) is a new site that’s trying to go head-to-head with Clickfunnels. If you’ve never heard of Clickfunnels, it’s a website creation and hosting site that funnels customers through multiple pages to collect their email address and try to upsell them items before they checkout.
Groovefunnels is trying to increase their number of users with free accounts that you can upgrade at a later time if you need additional features. However, for many users, the free account is perfectly fine. The info is a bit murky but I believe that Groovefunnels used to offer you 3 subdomains on their free plan and you couldn’t add your own custom domains.
At the time of writing this, you can add custom domains to all 3 of your website on Groovefunnels if you use THIS LINK.
This is one of my new favorites. I actually wrote a review about their paid plan recently and named it the new budget Shopify. You can more about that here.
As I mention in my review, there isn’t too much information about DashNex pages online – or at least any that’s very informative. They do have a free plan which you have full use of their templates, timers and upselling tools. It’s like a free version of Shopify with features from Clickfunnels. The only thing is that you cannot use a custom domain. You’ll be stuck with a subdomain on Dashnexpages.net.
However, it gives you a great introduction to their program and you can build an impressive looking website to redirect traffic to from another offer.
The free plan also gives you access to their referral program. You’ll get $5 for every free account that signs up through your link and your friend that signs up will get $5 as well. You can make an extra $15 if they move onto a paid plan but that unlikely as the best offer is only given immediately after signing up – see my review for info.
With that in mind, if you use my affiliate link HERE, you’ll get $5 credited to your account and as more of your friends sign up, this will increase. Perhaps they’ll implement custom domains in the future, but I’m signed up to their paid plan already as the features and savings are impressive.
That’s pretty much all that’s available at the moment. Should any other companies come out of the woodwork, I’ll be sure to let you know.
