Free Linux Web Hosting

A list of the top free Linux web hosting companies.

Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? I have been a bit busy the last 2-3 days but here I am! What have I been busy with? To be honest, I have actually been busy teaching myself Linux Administration, mainly shell commands, I have tried to literally force myself to stop using Cpanel or WHM whenever I have a problem and It has paid off tremendously, I have managed to somehow lower our server load to minimal levels but I am still trying to learn how to tweak MySQL for optimum performance, if anyone is willing to help me, please contact me asap by sending me a quick email at [email protected](or leave a comment below) — I can use all the help lol, anyway, lets focus on the topic of this post, and below I will give you guys the best free linux web hosting websites I have personally collected over the past few months, if you find a problem or if you believe I should replace a company on this list, leave a comment and I will investigate.


Why Free Web Hosting Instead of Paid Hosting?

Well, this is a touchy subject because we have all heard the quote, “You get what you pay for.” and when it comes to web hosting, that is partially true. Let me explain.

The reason why some people may choose to use free web hosting instead of paying for hosting is simple. They lack the money! Not all of us can afford $5 a month(or cheaper), this is the reason why web sites like wordpress.com offer free wordpress hosting, same reason why blogspot and so on. I also started my web development career on a free hosts way back then, before PayPal even existed and I am glad I was able to find a free web host to try out my web design. I wouldn’t be here without free web hosting, lol seriously. Anyway, enjoy the list below…
