This is a good hosting site, only requiring you to post on their webboard to get a free hosting account (or choose to display ads on your site pages) and even a free domain name.

Heliohost takes 12 hours to activate, but it is very good. Allowing you to either host a website with ads or buying with forum posts was a good choice. Some might like ads, and some might like posting in the forums. The website design is simple but not cluttered.

I was looking for a host with cPanel, mainly cron jobs, php and MySql databases supported. Some free hosts I found had PHP and MySql databases but either no crons or cronjob SUPPORT which had a very very long waiting time to get help (still nothing to this day), whereas Helion Host has all these, and at no cost. If you can give up some extra time to post a few topics or replies to their board you get totally FREE hosting with 150 meg webspace and 1.5 GIG bandwidth, totally bannerless; otherwise one banner on top of every webpage. Here is a list of what you get with the cPanel X:
MySql db, PHPMyAdmin
Custom Error Pages
Front Page Server Extensions
Custom MIME types
UNLIMITED mail accounts
E-mail Spam Protection
Password Protect Directories
IP blocker
Hotlink and leech protection
Subdomains + add-on domains + parked domains + redirects
Fantastico Deluxe

This is a very cool web space hosting site! :-) All you have to do is give them an email address and then you can have a sub-domain or host your own domain name if you already have one (or buy one). The only thing you have to have is ads on the web page sides. Very cool indeed! :-)

Really excellent -- everything about it is easy, reliable, and friendly! Plus its addictive - the point system is fun! Definitely check it out. :-)

Finally a free Cpanel webhost with Fantastico for non-English websites. :-)

An amazing site. You can get a free domain name by posting in their forums. One of the best hosting sites I have seen lately. :-)

Helio Host gives many people the advantage of using SQL and Php whereas there are not many FREE hosts who provides these services. The only negative thing is that for a newbie it would be very hard to understand how to use those features. If you are using the ad-based option, you might not understand how to correct certain issues like getting the config.php while installing PhpBB. I am really a newbie to Helihost, so I have no idea about the server downtimes. The free Php server is really fast.

You have to post in a forum for a week before you get accepted for hosting. I was unable to actually look at any messages in the forum, because whenever I selected a subforum, I got "circulated" (i.e. the page simply reloaded). Also, I could not find any info on terms and conditions, or what kind of PHP/MySQL, etc. packages are available. The Flash-based navigation also is horrible.
