I have spent so much time looking for a 0$ host and found only a few sites upto my need.
So i decided to provide a useful list of the best free hosting providers for wordpress,joomla blog and frewebsites
Paid hosting is recommended for best results and very high traffic blogs.When i was new to blogging, i failed in choosing the best hosting for my blogs.This lead to a lot of drop in my traffic.

The disadvantage of free hosting :
#They will not provide high server usage .X10hosting is good if you don’t use up their cpu much.
#Some like bytehost and megabyte donot support pop() functions and some plugins.You can use this for hosting free websites but not a wordpress blog
#000webspace also restricted some funtions ,so some plugins won’t work with them.
#Sometimes their server can be down for a long time.This can become bad when google bots try to crawl your site when your site is down

I had my experiences with most of the sites listed above.According to me i think if you have some money to spend,you should go for a reliable hosting plan like hostgator.com or
Free hosting sites are not always reliable.Its better to start with a free host and blogger platform for hosting and when you have enough money, you should move on to a reliable paid hosting service like hostgator.com or Bluehost
