It is more flexible, no forced ads, good quick support and unlimited bandwith! It is great! It is also FREE! Thats right : Free! No credit card required! It also works on many countries! It has Cpanel, PHP, unlimited MySQL databases, and Softaculos, an automated web app installer! It is a great alternative! It doesnt even try to upsell you to paid plans. That's because there are NO paid plans! You also get to (kind of) choose your features on registration. (Dont worry, you can ask an admin to move servers for you!) Right now they are the best Linux / Apache hosting service (remember it is FREE) and soon to come Windows Server 2016! It has stayed in business for 12 years and is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Long time user here...it really doesn't get much better than this. Good uptime, great features, and customer support that's friendly and cares (their support is forum-based, many of their admins are just other users who've been there forever and know the service well). They currently don't offer "freemium" / paid upgrades like others in this market...the only money they accept is donations.
They support nearly every popular web programming language out there, including less common ones like Ruby on Rails and ones that are often not found for free, like Java. They also use cPanel, so if you've used a host with that before, you'll know how to use their services going in. They also have a script installer (softaculous), so anybody can install software for things like blogs and forums and not worry about the technical details as much if they don't want to.
Just be aware that they limit signups per day on their two production-grade servers (the Ricky and Tommy plans). It's best to sign up right at midnight UTC if you want a production-grade account. Avoid the Johnny plan if you need production-grade hosting (Johnny is meant for experiments and testing, and is very slow at times).
This host is slower than a brick wall no joke many times a day it will take 3 to 5 min to load my site. It is so slow I am not able to setup my Wordpress site fully. One more thing I have noticed is they are using a really old version of PHP and you can not change which version of php in your cpanel. Stay far away from this free host it could be the sever is hosting to many sites
