is there any real FREE web hosting?

I am trying to setup a WordPress website with free hosting but so far i got only headache misery and pain...
I tried infinityfree which suspend my account for 24hrs every 5 posts i made for using too much CPU and I/O PHP and bunch of stuff...
I tried freehostingnoads which not working properly and the site have too many down time after few posts it redirect me to reinstall WordPress...after few minutes and refresh it goes back to normal...
 
i got tired signup to all this "free" hosting websites and decide to get help... hopefully here is the right place.

No such thing as free lunch, honestly. Host on the Wordpress itself is also free afaik.

If you won't mind setting up everything manually, GCP has a micro VM instance for free.

self host?

free web services tier (google cloud, AWS, oracle, azure)? these all have free tiers (connect via ip address, not domains afaik. but you might be able to get a domain from cloudflare and point it to your cloud machine but idk if thats possible/allowed. 

 

not sure about this but I bet there are lots of open source things for this. web hosting is a big thing so its highly likely that it exists on github somewhere

If I started a new shop, and named it "Shop", what would be your reaction? That's my reaction when people title their post as "Windows 11" or something shitty instead of something that actually describes what the thread is about. Only cool kids (dark mode users) can read this.

In my experience, free just isn't worth it. I host my blog on a DigitalOcean droplet for $5/mo. Infinitely better than anything you're going to get for free, but not expensive either.

I've used https://byet.host/ and https://www.000webhost.com/ in the past. You can give those a try, just use a throw-away e-mail when registering because they will spam the heck out of you....
Or like others have mentioned, save yourself some time and headaches and either rent web hosting or VPS (if you plan on using it for something more than just hosting a WP site).
Can't really recommend a payed web hosting service, didn't need one for a long time but If you want a VPS and you are in EU (or close, your locations says "IsraHell") then you might want to check out Hetzner hosting, they've got VPS from 3$ a month:

PS I am in no way affiliated with Hetzner. I've just been their customer for a long time and overall I am quite satisfied with their service (both dedicated and shared servers).

With Hetzner, you can also use the new App Images, right above the Linux flavors is Apps NEW.

One of those is a premade Wordpress installation which lets you skip a lot of setting up.

Now they just need to remove CentOS 8 and add Rocky or AlmaLinux to the OS image section heh.

You should try Netlify or Vercel. Depending on what you want to do they are both great free hosts that don't place ads on your website and are reliable. However if you want wordpress go with Vercel because Netlify does not support it. Vercel: https://vercel.com/

If you buy a domain from OVH they give you some free hosting to go with it, you have to manually set it up from the domain CP and its pretty limited but IIRC they do support Wordpress.

Have you tried 000webhost.com

Free hosting will always be limiting.

bplaced is/was free ... but slow and limited, and registrations were often disabled. 

 

Namecheap's cheapest shared hosting is 19$ a year for the first year, then 32$ a year. That works out to around 1.6$ a month the first year. 

You get 20 GB of disk space and up to 3 websites with the cheapest plan. 

 

Here's the plans : https://www.namecheap.com/hosting/shared/

 

You can go for the next one for unlimited websites and disk space (there's a file count limit though, so no you can't backup your hard drives on shared hosting) 

 

edit: the control panel has lots of apps on  one click wizard .. so you could install wikipedia or wordpress or forum scripts within minutes, no need to do anything by hand (though you could if you want to)

 

They have coupons on honey, so at renewal you could probably shave 2-5 dollars off those $32
