Instant signup, and it's easy to get a mysql db - it's automatic.  For 30 megs, PHP, mysql and a subdomain I'd say this is a very good host.  The only bad thing I've discovered so far is that some FTP clients don't work with them - but that's solvable by downloading smartFTP :-)

Good, you have to sign up for MySQL seperately, This is the only one that has been good so far.

This is one of the worst hosts I've been with. The FTP is slow, the customer support stinks, the pages load slow, and they corrupt your files every month when they do repairs. I've been using this host for about a month, and I've gone through 10 accounts, because the FTP dosen't work, the PHP My Admin dosen't work, or the MySQL database doesn't work, or they corrupted my files.

The pages do not load and get stuck. The FTP speed is very slow (2 kb/ sec)on a 5kb/sec connection. some pages return "Access denied". Not the best of host. Wasted changing all the url on my web site only to find that i have to get another host again.

I personally think JC Hosting is only just ok. It's really slow, not very generous with webspace, and it has a 20-seconds timeout on the FTP.

This is one of the WORST hosts i ever saw. the Server speed is approx. 600kbps. My Cable is faster! It's REAL garbage! And if I wanted to sign up, there was an 404-Error. Then I went to go to the FAQ - 404 Error. And the Formmailer and all other menu points - 404 Error.

HORRIBLE!!!!!! Confusing layout, hard-to-get-to uploader, bad cgi, i could go on and on. Also sent me spam, "adult" spam.

Im pretty sure that spam didn't come from jc-hosting themselfs as they are a non-profit business.

also the uploader seems to work well. best to use the ftp imo.

the provided features are awesome. unfortunately, accessing them is a pain, because their server is so unreliable, it is down 50% of the time, and slow the other half. i will have to start paying for hosting when i can afford it :-(

They have the easiest/fastest sign-up in the West (other sites like F Face and D Host could learn something about sign-ups from JC). It took me 1 minute to sign-up, and a minute later I was uploading my website! Unfortunately, upload speed was very, very slow. And again, unfortunately, during a period of 7 days I checked my website 100 times, and it was only accessible 2 times! So I used their deleted account function (all the other hosts could use a delete function like JC's) and removed my website. I may try again in a couple months should they ever become reliable. Also, I wish the domain name was shorter, but at least they allow your subdomain to come first (rather than getting pushed it back to the far ends of the earth...).

Very good free web host.
they do seem to be having troubles but if you hang in there you will see the benefits. what people forget these guys are supplying this for free so at least give them a chance to turn things around.
when it is working it is very fast and you get a MYSQL database and they allow forum's bonus or what. as has been said before, the forums are good.

They're still starting out, so at this time they have occasional problems with one thing or another but once they get going they're going to be awesome. They're automatic sign-ups require no personal or site information and are almost instant. Their FTP works just fine, and it's not hard at all to get a mySQL database. Unmetered bandwidth is definitely something to go with as well. The forums are really friendly and helpful. I'd say if you're patient sign up now, and if not, wait a week or two.

Jc-Hosting is amazing! Instant signup, FTP, MySQL, and friendly people with lots of support in the forums. Definitely give Jc-Hosting a try if you are looking for a home for your website. They are very strongly against fraud, which is good for safety and keeping the junk out of their systems.

Would be a nice service if there was more uptime. I thought I got into a real nice free host for a change. I signed up and uploaded last night- nice simple instant signup, but today the site won't load at all. My hunt for a good FREE PHP host continues...

Another pathetic attemp to gather information from people who are looking for free web hosts. You fill out their form, e-mail required, then your account seems to be activated, but when you actually try to view the pages, you are asked for some "afs" username and password by their "anti-fraud" system. Of course you can't view your pages because THEY AREN'T REALLY HOSTING ANY WEB SITES. Just another bunch of losers gathering e-mails for future spamming.

This host is ok.
The good thing is that they offer automated signups and decent scripting such as PHP etc. However, when I first got my account, it took 20 mins to load. Now it's faster. The only other problem is that the FTP session terminates when you are using it. There homepage is now renevated and it loads faster.

From the moment I setup the ftp info for my site with JC Hosting I had major problems. At first I thought it was my connection speed but no it was their fault. I don't know what they are doing but it's not providing a service of any kind and that's the truth. I was only able to get half of my site uploaded and now I can't even get the rest sent up as the ftp won't let me have access anymore. What are they playing at???!!!!! Very bad service. don't even bother with these guys!

Very good site though, Mysql database signup form could not be found (by me) but overall, at least they give plenty of ways to communicate with them ^_^

But it's quite worrying that they might remove the unlimited bandwidth and put a limit when more users signup.

Plenty of bad points like being very slow - and their website is so unhelpful, they should at least answer a few questions on their website "FAQ; coming soon".

BUT there are so many good points to outweigh the bad points.

-30 megs space is enough for all but the largest of sites,

-UNLIMITED!!! bandwidth - some hosts boast huge amount of space but if no-one can access it it is useless, so having this bandwidth is GREAT!!

-No annoying pop-ups or banner ads interfering with your frameset.

-Supports just about anything you might want to put on your website.

It is obvious that they are going through a few technical difficulties - i'm sure their website isn't intentionally THAT bad... so it may improve yet and if it does then great. Upload is fast through FTP (I use WS_FTP LE), but actually accessing the website is slow - but is that worse than having pop-ups? Probably not.

If you don't want to pay anything, then this comes highly recommended over all the competition. I say, start out with this and when your website gets a lot of traffic, pay to move to somewhere faster - unless JcHosting gets faster that is.

It's hard to say about this webhost. First off the features are great. The MySQL and PHP works for the most part, and they are one of the few free providers to allow forum scripts. However, it seems slow sometimes and most of the time, the images don't load properly and you end up having to press reload a bunch of times. Also, the tech support isn't exactly friendly. My chat with them consisted of this:

Me: Hi there! I like your service, I think it's absolutely great. Also I like the MySQL feature. But I have one question.
(pause of about 1 minute waiting for a response)
Them: what
Me: Are forum scripts allowed? My site isn't ENTIRELY a forum, but I would like to host my own forum. Do you allow that.
Them: yeah
Me: Cool! Thanks a lot!
Them: bye

As I said, not exactly the friendliest. And they promise what they offer, but with the image loading problem, I guess you get what you pay for.

I give them a 6

At first i was thinking this host is pretty decent. Unfortunately it seems to me plagued with slow download and alot of downtime. Although i've only been with it for a couple of days (and sadly due to the downtime still haven't got to upload much of my site) so this may improve after the servers back up. Who knows. Apart from that. A good host, good pool of supported scripts and 30mb of space. Ideal if you fancy running a site that's likely to have a small community.
