In order for the site to be seen by users, three important factors are needed: the site itself, the domain (site address) and hosting (place of permanent placement). Domain and hosting are usually paid, so webmasters think about the question: is it possible to get hosting for free ?
There are several options, but all of them have pitfalls that you need to be aware of before you start working together. You can get hosting on a site builder or on special resources - there are many large platforms that serve customers free of charge. But such a service is often accompanied by additional restrictions:
- Minimum disk space
- Ugly domains
- Slow page loading speed
- Lack of technical support
- Third-party advertising on your resource
- Unable to retrieve site files
- Additional hidden payments and other disadvantages
In addition, the provider is not responsible to the users of free hosting, and one day you may see an announcement that the site has stopped working instead of your site.
You can mention one more way, which is safer - a free trial period. But it is not provided for long, only for 10 days or two weeks, after which payment must be made. In this way, you can save money and check the provider's work in order to make a final decision.
But is there really free and reliable hosting that can be used for a long time? So!
Ukrainian provider Cityhost has launched a new service — an opportunity to get an analogue of paid hosting for free.
Transfer any of your domains to us or register a new one and get the "Smart" hosting tariff for free for one year. Its market value is 498.96 hryvnias, that is, you will save almost half a thousand hryvnias on the purchase of hosting.
What has to be done? Go to free.cityhost.ua and order a transfer of an existing domain or register a new one. During the procedure, the system will offer you to sign up for free hosting. After paying for domain registration/transfer, you can start using the service on the "Smart" tariff the same day.
There are no restrictions in the offer, the client receives all the benefits available on regular paid hosting:
- 5 GB of disk space is quite enough even for a large site

You can also register/transfer any number of domains and get free hosting for each of them. After the year of free use is up, the user can continue the service at the regular price.
