About Us

We're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization powered by a community of hobbyists that offer full-featured web hosting services for free.



  • We won't try to upsell you to any paid plans but if you appreciate our service we encourage you to make a donation.
  • We own our own hardware, which we operate out of a professional datacenter in Silicon Valley. Having full-stack access enables us to offer features like unmetered bandwidth and unlimited domains.
  • We’re supported by an active community of volunteers who you can find on our support forums, in our discord chat room, and even via telephone.
  • We’ve been offering free web hosting services to the community for over 12 years.
Our service is not free to run, and in fact in the last year we lost money. Please help support our mission of providing full-featured web hosting for free by donating today.

Reusing Usernames
Our account creation process has been improved.

When you create an account we actually create two accounts for you. One account is the hosting account itself, and the other is a forum account to make getting support easier. The way it worked before was if you deleted your hosting account you wouldn't be able to recreate that same username because your forum account still existed and would block anyone from choosing that username.
