[Free Hosting] Create Own Free Websites in 5 Minutes - Byet.host

I have been testing quite a few free web hosting service providers and found Byet.host, which I believe worthing to have a post to let people know their excellect free service.

Byet.host, Byet Internet Services, an iFastNet.com company, is an industry leading, privately held Internet services company specializing in web hosting.

Byet gives you the choice of your sub domain. You can stick with yoursite.byethost.com, or you can pick from another 25+ great names we have available, and the list is still growing. With MySQL, PHP, FTP, VistaPanel (our specially designed control panel, providing by iFastNet) and other features, you can host heaps of scripts with no worries. Adding your own domain registered at any domain registrar is just a few clicks and is hosted on your free Byet account!

In this post, I am going to show you some basic usages for this free web hosting service using Wordpress APP as an example to deploy, with a custom domain and ssl certificate. That should cover most of basic needs for free web hosting.

Process Limitations

Since this is free hosting with limited resources available for the server, if the server run out of resources, you website might get following warning message:

This site/page has used all avaialble php / apache processes allowed on free hosting account.

Refreshing the page once the amount of apache / php processes are reduced will cause the site to work

We would recommend upgrading your hosting account at IFastNet Premium hosting accounts , premium hosting accounts have MUCH higher resources dedicated to them.

Or following bad gateway error message.
