Hostinger free web hosting


Hostinger is one of the major web hosting companies offering free web hosting services. This is particularly beneficial to blogs with low traffic.

The company’s free hosting plan lasts for one month and it’s meant to prepare the website owner to switch to a premium plan. Features of this plan include:

  • 1 website hosting
  • Limited bandwidth (3GB)
  • 300 visits monthly
  • 300 MB SSD storage per month

If you have a site that gets over 300 visits per month, free hosting isn’t ideal for you but if your blog is new, you’ll comfortably host it under this plan.

One disadvantage of free hosting is that it limits your blog from getting more than 300 visits per month. In case it exceeds the resources allocated, you’ll be advised to upgrade to premium plans. The closest premium plans are:

  1. Single shared hosting—$1.99 per month
  2. Premium Shared Hosting—$2.99 per month

Features of Single Shared hosting

  • 30 GB SSD Storage
  • 10000 monthly visitors
  • 1 email account
  • Free SSL($11.95 value)

  • 100 Websites
  • 100 GB SSD Storage
  • ~25000 Visits Monthly
  • Free Email

  • Free Domain ($9.99 value)
  • Unlimited Bandwidth 
  • Managed WordPress

Statistics show that single shared hosting is the most popular plan among websites with low traffic. This means that when the free hosting offer expires, you should upgrade to single shared hosting plan—it costs $1.99 per month.

What I can advise is that you should not rush to pay for premium hosting plans when your website is new, go straight to the free plan then shift when it expires. No need of wasting money on a website without traffic.

The plans we have listed above are basis, later you’ll discover that Hostinger has more advanced plans especially for high traffic sites. One advantage of hosting at Hostinger is that it caters for websites of different categories. Even blogs which receive millions of visitors monthly are hosted by the company. It’s also ideal for WordPress sites.
