I love this HOST for the following reasons:

1. I am hosted since the last 2 years.
2. They never let me down with support.
3. Downtime was only once for about 2-3 hours (in 2 years).
4. The credit system is very generous. I have 63 credits, which means I do not have to visit their forum for more than 2 months now.
5. The staff is VERY friendly, and they are helpful.
6. About the team, all I can say is they are good people.
7. NO ADS AT ALL on the site or their forums as well.
8. It is a pleasure to be at their forums, which are full of activity.
9. They keep up their commitments, and they even installed Ruby on Rails on one of the member's request.
10. After 6 months of hosting, I even got SHELL access.
11. Fantastico is a BONUS! It works like a charm and helped me in learning.

I never liked trap17. Their Cpanel is outdated, even though on the homepage they say they are "Including latest CPanel, Fantastico". They do not even include fantastico anymore. They give away free domains, but you have to have 250 credit points, which will take forever, because as your post count goes up, it is harder to get points, and their credit system makes it harder for you to accumulate credits. Their forums have barely anything to talk about anymore. Plus their admin yells at you for asking a question about your site in their designated "support" section. I am sorry, but this is not a good web host!

I have been with Trap 17 for over a year and a half now and am very pleased with their services. The hosting is reliable and the forums are pleasant to post in. Everybody is friendly and helpful. It is easy to get the necessary credits to gain your hosting privileges and keep your free site up and running.

Trap17 are a great host. Yes, you need to post in the forum for hosting, but you are accepted quickly and you get not only excellent hosting out of it, but you become part of a brilliant community. I would certainly recommend Trap17 to both new and experienced webmasters - the community provide plenty of help in setting your site up, designing it and generally getting up and running. I have been using Trap17 for around 2 years now, and I have never had any major issues, ether on the forum or with the hosting itself. The servers are fast and reliable, and the support staff are pleasant and helpful. Certainly give them a go if you want great free hosting. :-)

This is an amazing site! I will stand 100% behind it! Like everyone else has said, it has amazing forums and community. Good admins! Definitely the best host I have found, and I have gone through half of the hosts on this site.

The comment below was added 8-19 by the same person:

Trap 17 is a great community to start off with. The service is excellent - the best I have found yet and I have gone through hundreds of hosts. The people and support is awesome and dedicated! I love the un-restricted cPanel as well. Since I have signed up (just over a month) I have seen the site go down once and only momentarily - other than that, the uptime and speed is amazing! I also signed up, posted, and was approved for hosting in less than an hour or two.

This site is absolutely top notch. I have been with them just over a year, and instead of diminishing like most do, they have improved 100 fold. The features have gone up from 150mb to 500mb disk space, and it is now on 10,000 MB monthly bandwidth. They do not cheat you out of bandwidth like other sites offering this much. You actually do have 10000 mb of data transfer, and this site and its servers are extremely fast. Everyone on the forums are helpful, and the forums are VERY active (now almost 32,000 members - 31,759 at the moment, to be precise!). I love the forums there, and the admins are so friendly, and I can truly say that about the moderators too. When I had a problem I e-mailed their tech support and received a reply in the evening within 20 minutes. The reply was detailed, and to the point, and yes, the problem was solved first time without other companies' wishy-washy solutions like getting you to test things and try thousands of wrong fixes. They are amazing. Non-English sites ARE allowed, except you have to have an English overlook page detailing your site so they know what it is about.

I cannot rate them highly enough. If you do not like the sound of posting on forums, try to get into them. Credits are easy to acquire, and certainly not difficult. Because it uses a credit system instead of post count, quality instead of quantity is important. There is almost zero spam on this forum. And the spam that is there is removed within a couple of hours. Dedicated service, great features, fun forums, helpful support, helpful moderators and fun, yet dedicated and knowledgeable admins make this THE place to be.

The best by far; you will not regret it. You prove yourself by posting on their forum and earning "credits". They are very helpful, and strict with people who are "bad eggs". Tons of features add to this. Support is instant on the forums. Trap17 worked hard to ensure complete customer satisfaction - and that I appreciate.

I have been with trap17 for over a year now, and my site has grown so greatly that I moved onto one of their larger paid hosting plans, and what they say is true: the free webhosting plan offers all the same things as their paid hosting plan does.

This is an "okay" hosting company. Sure they have all these great features, but you have to post for it on their message board. Secondly, you do not get hosting right away. You have to wait until they approve you, which can take a long time. They are extremely strict on their forums. If you do something very small, they will warn you, and then you cannot get free hosting until your warning is gone, which again can take a long time for that to happen. They still have some features that other freewebspace companies do not have, but when it comes down to it, they are just average, and not for a newbie web designer.

One phrase for this free hosting server: "Better than paid hosting!" It has it all - PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL database, FTP, Email (account, forwarders, etc.), PERL. and lots more stuff. You can create your own sub-domain or even hotlink protect your images. They even have IP Deny manager and lots of tools for website developing and monitoring and stuffs.

This site is really great. the features are good enough to attract anyone, and the forum community is way better than the ones at other forum-based freehosting providers. The credit system is pretty good too, taking into consideration they see over quality rather than quantity. There are hardly any negative aspects of this provider, and to be honest, I do not know of any. I used it for like 4 months, and then due to my inactiveness for 3 months I lost my account, but now within a day I will get it back up. And yeah, last but not the least, I recommend this free hosting provider to anyone who are still using freesite hosts like Yahoo Geocities. :-)

This free website hosting company is great. I have been hosted free for a few months now, and I haven't had any downtime or any web server problems. Anyone saying they have been suspended, it is just because they failed to post in the forums or did something they were not supposed to do. Its their fault, not the host! the forum is great and very addictive and friendly, from posting I have over 130 credits (credits = days) for free web hosting, and this is because the forums are such an easy place to post and talk. Anyone looking for a great forum on all things in life from programming to graphic contests, poetry to counselling, there is soomething for everyone, and there are no catches at all!

This is simply the best free web space hosting service I have ever experienced, and as a result of this, I have stayed with them for just over a year. One of the main disadvantages is due to the required forum posting, but you get used to it after the first few weeks. It becomes part of the routine - spending 30 minutes or so every week keeping up your credits, and the moderators are really friendly.

The downtime? I have noticed little more than a few minutes every month or so, and recently I have been actively developing it (from scratch and I have been really actively developing this past month [I like to code everything myself]).

The free website servers are really fast, and that clearly reflects in my free web site's page load time. The hosting support is good. If you have a problem, you just make a topic in the forums (which earns you credits :-)), and most of the time you get a reply within two hours, and a fix within three.

The features - almost everything you could ever want. 150MB of free webspace and 5GB of bandwidth is more than enough to host a small website, and fantastico gives you lots of premade scripts to do the stuff that you can not code yourself! I recommend this to anyone who can spare 1/2 hour to 1 hour per week posting.

I have been with the free web hosting service for 2 years, and I got to tell you what I really think. They are one of the best free hosting companies that I have ever seen and used. as you can see, the features are very good. it supports all major dynamic languages such as php, cgi, perl, jsp, and it has ftp access to upload files with a ftp client such as smartftp or any other, and it has a very good control panel with everything you will ever need. I am very rigorous with the quality topics I must make in order to have this excellent free website hosting service. One more thing I must say: I recommend this service to everyone wanting a decent and good free webhosting service with almost 100% uptime.

This free cpanel hosting server has TONS of great features, and the backend (cPanel) is up-to-date. It is also really easy to navigate. The forum posting sounds crazy, but it is really easy to get credits just make sure your forum posts are long and meaningful. 5GB per month doesn't sound like a lot of bandwidth, but unless you are hosting lots of images or something, you won't likely use more than 1 or 2GB in a month. The NO-FORCED-ADS is a definite bonus, expecially since you can use your free website for things such as e-commerce (SSL is supported!). I highly recommend to anyone looking for a high-quality free e-commerce hosting provider, as long as you have a few minutes a day (or so) to post on the forums. rated 9/10 -- I would award 10/10 rating, but I have not been with them very long, so I am not sure if they are 100% good.

I have been with trap17 since January 7th of 2006, and ever since that day I was welcomed warmly to the website as long as I followed the trap17 rules which aren't hard to follow, and concidering the reward you get just for posting every so often, and following the rules, I think it has been worth it. I don't just use trap17 as my excellent free website host, but I use it as a really fun communtity to talk to graphic designers that are the best at what they do! they give you advice on how to improve and more! so in all, this isn't just an excelent free web site host; it is also a community to get support, and have a little fun every so often ;-) but not too often :-) (that's a joke).

This is by far the best host I have ever used. They give you access to virtually every single feature you could possibly want. I have never seen this much access, even on paid hosting accounts! The only "down side" is that you need to post every once and a while to keep up credits. But you can make 20 credits (i.e. 20 days of free hosting) in about 30 minutes. so I don't really think there is much to complain about. There are also tons of people and topics, so you should be able to find something that you are interested in talking about.

I used to have bravehost, and they were great and all, but the ads were huge on the free web pages. So I set out to find another great FREE site with no ads and ftp access. Well I came to Trap17 and thought it would be a pain to write a post everyday just to keep my free hosting service, but it wasn't. Right now I have over 40 days I don't have to post and I get all these awesome features. Trap 17 is the best freehost I have ever seen, bar none.

Although message board posting is required, it takes no time at all to accumulate the necessary forum posts. There are many different topics in their forums, and you can usually find something you want to share your opinion on.

This web site is the absolute best free web hosting service that I have ever been a member of. This is the first free hosting site that has replied to my support requests, had a great server uptime (I have never seen my hosted free website down at all), the server speed is excellent, and the people in the forum are nice.
1.) Posting in the forums is not hard and is actually kind of fun.
2.) The credit system is very fair and is also very strict.
3.) All services are completely great, fast, and reliable.
4.) The people in the forums are nice.
5.) This is a dedicated free host; they do not offer pay hosting directly from this domain, which is great.
6.) I have been on this host for 5 months now and had no thought to leave.
7.) I have a paid host that gives me 10000MB of web space, and trap17 is still better. I just use my pay host to host my videos.

Sign up was easy and the site looked good at first. I had no trouble uploading the images I needed for my index file, but the first time I tried to create the file, I got an sql error message. OK, so maybe the site's having a little downtime problem. I waited for a couple days and tried again, same thing. Not a good start for a new site, so I decided to delete my account. When I pressed the delete site button, there was an "unknown error" on the page and the account is still active. I tried this once a day for three days and got the same message and was still able to log in to my account. It was never deleted. And yes, I did go to the forums. There was absolutely nothing helpful there at all. I'm glad for all those people who have not trouble with this site but my experience so far has been a little different.

For a free web host Trap17 rivals many paid hosting services. Sure you need to post on their forums to keep your web space but with the range of topics available its very easy to keep your credits at an acceptable level. With the forums being so active it's very easy to get help if you run into trouble with your account and judging by messages in the forum, there is very little, if any, down time of the servers.

The reason people have been suspended is due to their lack of contribution to the site. If they read the rules, they would understand that. I give this site (and sister site a rating of 10/10 for a free-web-host. By simply using words as a payment method, you can get a professional service for free. I am surprised such a service exists. Trap17 and Astahost are always improving, for example, lately there is a push to increase site traffic, so the Admin, (OpaQue) has opted for a more generous credit system. Hosting accounts are balanced on this credit system. The only problems that ever occur are during the updates of the server, which are fixed within hours, NOT days.

This site is truly fantastic! I was searching the web after leaving my previous free web hoster because of poor quality and service, just before I finally decided that only a paid host would get me the results I requested I found Trap 17. A totally free and easy to use website that offers AMAZING hosting qualities. I can not even begin to explain how amazing it is. It's all completely free. Truly is fantastic. Couldn't ask for anything to change, everything is perfect.

This is a great web host. You maintain your credits at the forums and you have a web hosting that normally costs several dollars month. The C-panel is almost top of the line. I would suggest this host for anyone that wants to use advanced scripts. Such as cgi, javascript, fantastico scripts, and over 20 pre-scripts. Such as Wordpress, and template express. You want it they got it. Enjoy!

Probably one of the best free hosts out there! Gives everything you get at a PAID host - but for free! Really friendly community that always helps when you ask. You have to post regularly to have your hosting account, just two posts daily is enough! This is how they earn their money - nothing is free!

Quite frankly an amazing host. Even though you have to abide by the credit system, it is not hard to maintain a sufficient amount of credits. The host has so many features it's unbelievable that it's all for free. Trust me, if you like to be part of a community, contribute your creations, and help others, you should have a great experience at this host. Try it out, it puts those basic hosts like Angelfire to shame.

Seriously, you can NOT find a good host like this one! I mean, what free host gives you unlimitted mysql and all these addon scripts? Of course, you have to post on their forums, but instead of being forced to post like... 40 posts each month, you have credits and each day you lose one credit. So, it doesn't take many posts (for me at least) to stock up on all the credits I need. This host also allows legal mp3 and zip files, which is really hard to find in other sites without getting yourself banned. I also think trap17 gives a great amount of free web space. I think I've only used less then 40% of it and my website is huge. Well, that's all I can really say about I don't think theres anything bad that I can say about this free host. I want to get more people as possible to get hosted by this site!

My website is hosted in Trap17, I have all the features that a webmaster need: PHP, MYSQL, FTP, and all without publicity. You only need to create a user account, parcitipate in the forum, gain credits (10 or 30) and exchange it for a Hosting Account.

Simply the best host I've ever found. Been hosted for one month now and have experienced zero downtime. All their features are unlimited (excluding space and bandwidth) and with their new packages it makes it even easier to get web space and bandwidth. And their credit system makes it an even better free web host. I've earnt as many as 7 credits in one post and you only need ten to get hosted. Also, the forums don't take ages to load. If you choose Lite as your default skin, you can load each page in an instant. Posting is easy, there are so many topics that you can't not find one to post in. Cpanel is always the latest version. It currently stands at 10.2.0-CURRENT-131 and they have cpanelPro 1.0 with fantastico too. Having both php, mysql is also rare but having jsp and perl with it is even rarer. NO ADS AS WELL - MAJOR PLUS POINT. With unlimited mysql databases, php and unlimited email accounts, and all for as little as 5 posts, trap 17 really is the best free host on the web.

I have been with Trap17 for 8 months. I am a well-known user there at at many sites in their network. When I first set up my account was mysteriously suspended a month in for no reason, the admin tried to fix it, but was unsucesful. I had to make several quality posts again to get my web hosting back. I did not complain, but just 5 minutes ago my web hosting account is once more suspended, I am very close to leaving this web host. I spent countless hours posting to get credits, and countless hours working on my web site, and it is removed, months and hours of work gone, if my web hosting isn't renewed then the 2 rating I gave this deserves to be a 0.

If you ever have a question about your web hosting, or about other things, they'll at leat TRY to answer it if they can. Also, it's not hard at all to keep your webhosting active by posting.

It is not true that you have to post more than 5 posts per day, nor is it true that the mySql database has faltered. It is even more untrue to say that their attitude and support is bad.

To those people who said this host has exceptional uptime, they are lying. MySQL is down A LOT. And when you goto the forum to ask about it, people tell you "it's a free host, don't like it? leave." Or they say "it's all the noobs running faulty scripts". Sometimes they will tell you to "just wait" cause it will "fix itself". No solutions or reasons are given.

Another thing is, they require you to post to keep your hosting. This in itself isn't the problem. The problem is that they run a script that automatically suspends your account if you don't post practiacally EVERYDAY. More than around 5 posts a day required.

Reply by Trap17 Admin, OpaQue 2/27:

MySQL is down occasionally that too because of spamming done by few members. The uptime of our network is more than 99% at any time. We did fail to provide this uptime last month due to a network outage where 300+ servers were affected in the datacenter.
ALSO, The Hosting Credit System is the most generous system. Many members have more than 60 credits which means, THEY CAN REMAIN *IN*ACTIVE at our site for more than 2 MONTHS without losing their account.

Trap17 have an exceptional uptime. See previous poster for all the options :) I would reccomend this or their affiliate for anyone who are looking to try out building a web site. No advertising addded to yous site, this is a plus for me. I have been there since december 28 2004. Uptime is greater than 90% and when down it seems to be user induced -running a bad script - etc. Host is very fast. Support is great and is both user based on forum and by Admin / Moderators. Servers are monitored 24/7.

Those of you who recognise my handle. Yes, I am an Admin / user as the affiliate hosting site. This is so that people reading this will not assume I'm hiding my handle to post a great review for Trap17. I'm hosted on the affiliate site and started as a regular user, then a Mod and now an Admin.

Trap17 provides the perfect webhosting for my blogging needs. With a touch of Cpanel and the easiness and simplicity of using the hosting, trap17 offers the best hosting at a low cost price: FREE. With support of php, mysql, perl, cgi and more, trap17 offers UNLIMITED of each of the features found in cpanel. NO RESTRICTIONS ARE PUT IN THE FEATURES! The only minor restriction is the space and the bandwidth.

QUOTE (OpaQue)
So, basically it is a Web Hosting, where your payment modes are other than cash. You help the free web hosting company by agreeing to serve their ads, popups, link etc. So in short, the company earns by placing advertisements on your site. When you are sick of these advertisements and want to remove them, they will make you pay a small amount on monthly basis to release you off your headache.

Why should I go for Free Web hosting? Answer is quite simple, You do not want to pay for your small site. Or If you have a site and would like to experiment with it and its success but do not want to start investing money right away then, these hosts are a better option.

Free webhosting is offered to users who demand features, but don't require 480 GB of space and tons of bandwidth. In short, trap17 offers the most, for the least. Inexpensive, but never cheap.

This has to be one of the best free hosting website since I started building. They offer a great many features that even paid hosting providers do not. The community is very friendly and can help you out when you are in a jam, so having to post in the forum isn't a big thing. They also do not go down often like other hosting providers and are quick when it comes to support. If you are looking for a free website provider, I would suggest you start here.

I believe that Trap17 has come a long way. The forums are thriving and it's not hard to post - it helps the community as well. I was a bit apprehensive of the posting until I started and it's not so bad. Your only liability would be your internet connection.

Trap17 offers much more than most professional paid hosts. They give you freedom to grow and expand. And if you need it, you can go for paid hosting (only $10/year - that's less than $1 a month!) and get the value you've always wanted.

The moderators and administrators are friendly, quick, and always helpful and I don't think I'll want to leave. My last host (Frostyhost) shut down because of insufficient funds and because they lacked the commitment. And I'm so lucky to have found Trap17.

Sign up today and experience a wonderful host with time and resources to spare. Cpanel, PHP 4, 50+ add-on scripts, unlimited databases, unlimited subdomains, the list goes on. Try it some time :)

i am getting really tired of this web host. Some people say how great it is, and it is pretty good, but the big problem is this forced posting junk.  they suggest that if you can't post 3 times a week on their forums, THAT YOU GET SOMEONE ELSE TO LOG IN YOUR ACCOUNT AND DO IT. it is incredibly lame. after i got my hosting account setup, i asked for a simple subdomain change, from "bot" to "wicked". if they had said no, that would have been fine. instead, they changed it, but they messed it up and the site is broken now. i posted about this and got a reply "get more posts and re-request for a new package and we will set you up with a new account" or something like that. so i did, and when i requested a new account, like, 3 days later there is a reply saying something like "you're wasting our time. you need to get even more posts".

so, i start looking around for PAID hosting because i can not handle this garbage. i look at the same companies paid hosting site, and it is completely amatuer and incomplete. if these guys can't get a paid solution right, ask yourself what kind of free site they could possibly make.

there are tons of complaints on their forums if you look through them.

I have been at trap17 for about two months now, and I have no regrets. Fast stable web hosting doesn't get better unless you are hosted with trap17. Trap17 hosting gives you the oppurtunity to have professional hosting with Cpanel, 150mb hosting space, 3gb  bandwidth, fantastico, and much more. Friendly staff and members make posting easy and fun. After you have the required amount of posts for a package requesting is simple and easy, and you are always granted your account straight away!

Trap17 is a great free web host. Some say you cannot get good things free. Haven't you heard of Firefox? Well, trap17 seems to be the Firefox of Web hosting. Fast, no downtimes, great support and a very helpful forum. It's a pleasure to post on these forums and get reply with helpful suggestions. What else do you need? It actually gives you more than you'll ever need!

I recently got up with in the past month. And I was by far expecting the service to be horrible, and for me having to post 20+ times to get even the slightest trickle of web hosting space. What I didn't expect, however, was for the provider to offer, PHP, CGI-Perl, Unlimited mySQL D-bases, Unlimited Sub-Domains, .25 gig Bandwith (just to start with), and MUCH more. I thought this must be a scam. Just for the hey of it, I decided to try it out, and I had expected to be let down like I usually am. I was wrong, very wrong. I posted 10 times, and immediately was approved for hosting, I upload my site, that I've been building on for a while (and uses ALOT of special features, and scripting that i thought would be un-compatible with's servers) but again, i was proven wrong. The site worked like a charm. And now, i'm still taking advantage of the MANY things offered by and Have only been let down by them majorly, once. I was planning a huge get-together on my forums, and chatroom, and my bandwith overloaded, and almost everyone was pitched off. Needless to say, I was very annoyed, but realized it was my fault, and not that of I'm amazed by their capability and features, and out of 100% uptime, it's probably a -- 99.5-.8%. I would tell you NOT to use this host, because I'd like more bandwith and stuff for myself, but that'd be being selfish, and this is TOO good for anyone to pass up. GO TRAP17.COM!

This host is the best one that i have found to date, I mean i have yet to find someone who can stay open long enough to give you hosting let alone be around and have all intentions of being around and all they ask is for some creative activity in the forums and some clicks on links. 

1)a)Pro - Great space and bandwidth with so little requirement.
  b)Con - Your asked to not host mp3 and zip files on your site.**

2) I definatly recommend this site

3) I have been using this free host for about a month.

4)This webhost has been very very very reliable like .07% downtime They give you a guarantee of 99.5% uptime.

5) The speeds from the webhost are great.

6) The support Features are awesome they do everything in their power to make sure you have all the necassary tools at your fingertips and answer any support questions you have asap.

The only reason I see this as a con is because I make web videos of MMORPG's that I play that have mp3's in them and what not and are usually zipped up to take up less space. That in my eyes is the only con that i have found with the site.

Try all the FREE WEB HOSTS at this site and when you are dissatisfied at some place or the other or ignored hosting.. Come here as I did. And this one is the most reliable FREE HOST I've ever seen. So many helpful members and an amazing passtime forums with games and stuff. This host makes hosting a kids play! Frankly, I haven't seen many Cpanels but the one that this host provides is like tooo much! I mean, there are so many options that I guess, they have put each and everything that one will ever need. And best part is, they are all UNLIMITED!

Simply the best! I thought this was just another forum website and you got to get your site reviewed wait 10 days something else blah blah blah... but not at all this is all the features above and more in a timley manner. Once i applied for hosting i got it approved in less than an hour! Look at all the features it has for free!

WOW! Simply the best web hosting I've seen so far... You can personalize everything in your CPanel, you have unlimited databases (MySQL and PostGreSQL...), a lot of free scripts and MUCH more! You MUST try this host! The support forum is very good, thay answer clearly to your questions. I found this host was the best, and trust me, I tried a lot of other hosts, but this one was the best.

Can Someone say Awesome? Well I can!

Support: Fast and helps you with your problems

Server: fast. Excellent for a free host

Price:free, post 10 posts

Ads: No ads. YES NO ADS. Most of free hosting they bombard your site with

Features: Cpanel-preinstalled scripts.Unlimited mysql,subdomains..etc. 20mb at first but you can upgrade

You might pay 4.95 for hosting but it doesn't add up to what offers.

Why not get the best hosting? when trap17 offers it.

All am saying Its the best free hosting around. If you don't believe me than try it.

Awesome site! The admin is very nice, he's always active and tries to respond to all requests. The admin's name is Admin. I don't think there has been any instance where anyone with a valid number of GOOD posts was denied hosting. Even in cases where all the required information was not given, Admin still approved their requests. The hosted sites have almost NO downtime, there is great support, and new forums for the benefit of the hostees are being made frequently :D...This is absolutely the best host ever!! Their unlimited slew of features made me think it was too good to be true, but when I tried it out myself I was dumbstruck, everything was working seamlessly! The JSP, TCL, pgSQL, etc., EVERYTHING works, its no scam, its real, don't think this is run by a kid with a DSL/Cable connection somewhere, because this is run by a proffessional person with Dedicated hosting, and he is a reseller! :P...

Words can't discribe how great this host is, at first I thought there must be some sort of catch, but, I got my account, and have been using it for a month or so now, I have never once yet seen the site down, With most other free hosts they sometimes go down for no apparent reason.

trap17 is the best i love how u can upload what ever u need and stuff. I would recommend this free hosting. i got 4 of my friends 2 join. The free web host is very fast.
How long have you used this free webspace host?  maybe a month. Is the free webhost's support/features good or bad?  Why? its good. just the other day i need my accend deleted and it took the admin about 5 min 2 do it and then make me a new 1.
Has this free web hosting been reliable (approximate % downtime if known)?  um well this part is ok it has been down number of times but their mostly at night (for me) but no my website has never ben down.

Initially I thought that this was a JOKE! and to my surprise.. this site really ROCKS! I mean, I simply PMed the admin saying my problem and stuff sincerly ( I am busy for few days and I am unable to post ) and just in a hour I got a mail with all the setting! This is amazing. The Cpanel Rocks with no settings HIDDEN! I never knew that Cpanel has soo many features. This is even better than Paid Hosting! If you are active you can easily get a 150 MB account with lots of BW! Just remain active and support them. I rate them FULL! If you have not tried them, you have missed something ... :-)

PHP Version 4.3.8 and SSI tested okay.  Cpanel looks nice, with all the features.  Has unlimited addon domains (great!), but little bandwidth though (unless maybe you forum-post a lot to get more).  This host is on a new server again -- if you had problems in the past, I'd recommend trying again now.
