I have been using this site for a few months now. The freeweb space and bandwidth is REALLY great. My web site did get dropped in 2 separate occasions but was back up and running within a day or two, and within that time period there was notification of the problem on their forums which are constantly updated by the admins themselves. ;-)

This is one of the best hosts I have ever used. Not only does it have great up-time, but you can get free bannerless hosting for a month by only posting 25 posts!

It is a pretty good free hosting site. The base plan has Google AdSense ads on them, but you can get rid of them by posting 25 times a month in their forums. Speaking of the forums, they are a really helpful place on just about anything. It includes cpanel control panel, which most webhosting places would charge for. Overall I gave them a 9 rating because I am sure I will find something I do not like about them. Highly recommended.

It is a great host. Posting to get "Helions" which allow you to upgrade your hosting account is a very fun and innovative way to offer hosting. I love it, personally, and I am sure that you will too.

I like them. You get a free domain name if you post a few times on the site, and they even have add-free hosting, and you do not lose any scripts or anything. My up-time was 100% -- my website never went down.

HelioHost is one of the most interesting web site hosts I have seen thus far in my life. While offering a great host of features, free web space, and bandwidth, this is not the area where it shines most. To get the full effect, you must visit its forums; there, with enough posts, you can get a variety of truly unique prizes, such as: a free domain name, banner-less web sites, and general forum/web site benefits. In all honesty, this web hosting service is truly a one of a kind wonder. While it has a short delay when registering your site before usage, it is negligible in comparison to the great system HelioHost employs. While not perfect, I recommend this host whole-heartedly.

For this site there are 4 hosting plans, one of which I do not understand, but you probably do not want it. The first two require many posts on the forums. The next two free webhosting plans do not require posts but place an ad/ads in your web page. You get a decent amount of hosting space, and they are very efficient in making you sites. I really recommend this site. :-)

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
