x10Hosting is a cloud-based host that’s been offering free web hosting since back in 2004. Cloud-based means that, rather than your content “living” on a single server, it’s stored in the cloud.
You’ll get unlimited bandwidth, full cPanel access, and a one-click WordPress auto-installer to help you get up and running.
- Cloud-based hosting infrastructure
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 512 MB storage (potentially more)
- Use subdomain or your own custom domain
- 2 different hosting dashboards — cPanel or a custom hosting dashboard
- Full server access
- 1-click WordPress installer
- You can use your own custom domain name or choose from five free subdomains.
- x10Hosting caps your storage limit at 512 MB to start, but they’ll give you more space for certain uses if you ask.
- Unlimited bandwidth means x10Hosting works for high-traffic sites.
- You get full cPanel access.
- Limited signup locations. X10Hosting would not let me sign up from Vietnam or using a VPN, so not everyone can use the service.
Who Should Use It?
x10Hosting is good for those with higher-traffic websites because it offers unlimited bandwidth. It’s also great if you want a powerful hosting dashboard, as it’s one of the few free web hosts to give you access to cPanel.
x10Hosting is a great free option if you can use it. I wasn’t able to get around the geolocation block to create a free hosting account — so YMMV when trying to sign up for this free service.
