NewsWe Got Tired Of Saying No
Nobody likes being told no, but unfortunately our service has limitations and sometimes it just isn't possible to do what people want to do. Whenever someone encountered one of those limitations, it pained us to do so, but we had to send them elsewhere. Well, we got tired of saying no, and we have a better solution now rather than sending you off to use someone else's hosting service.Amazon Smile

Heliohost is fantastic! I see a post that complained that their site loads slow in July 2012. No kidding! Heliohost made a major improvement to their servers during July and made the announcement on the Home page that maintenance was pending. Heliohost kept updates on their maintenance progress during this crucial time. My suggestion.... Read their Home Page once in awhile. All maintenance issues (if any) will be announced and they will keep the user/member informed and up to date (at all times). Their cPanel is amazing and it includes a tutorial for "newbies". Most seasoned website developers will find that Heliohost has everything they need. I was told by a paid provider prior to locating Heliohost that there are no more free web hosts providers. Not True! Don't believe anything until you do your own research. Heliohost is over-the-top! Excellent!
HelioHost is great for the basics! ... Its free and allows external programs connect to the SQL, so its well worth it!
