Whilst there are many reviews out there that dive into the obvious list of features you recieve & their support, Our main focus is if this is a host that you can rely on & has the performance to run your website fast & efficiently. Pros: Cons: Simple & fast registration No email accounts Custom control panel Limited direct technical support Live status page ( https://status.000webhost.com/ ) No backups Free plan supports Mysql Their control panel is simply & easy to navigate which i love, however it's simple for a reason; It lacks a lot of features the default cpanel comes with, it gives you the bare bones to run your website and that's it. If you require assistance, as a free member there is no support ticket system, instead they have a community forum allowing you to post your issues their and hope someone is able to resolve it. While i understand they had to cut some corners to offer a free solution, basic support ticket system goes a long way.
