We were recently talked about on HostReview, a website that is dedicated to reviewing the best hosting sites out there as well as provide the public with up to date information about the top web hosting companies in the business. We were featured and talked about as being one of the top free hosting providers out there.
Alternatives to the ad-supported hosting model
The fall of the ad-driven model has however had a silver lining. There are a bunch of new free hosting providers that have cropped up that have based themselves on more reliable business models. Companies like Hostt offer a freemium service where customers are provided free, unlimited hosting space and those who want more from their provider may purchase add-on packs. This is a successful business model that has been replicated across industries right from mobile games, social networks to SaaS tools.
