Netfirms Basic Hosting: Not Free and Not Hosting

If you are looking for free web hosting, don't sign up for Netfirms Basic.

One of our readers has informed us that the Netfirms Basic which is advertised as free from this company and is not free and not even hosting.

Owen tells us that he signed up after seeing 5 Mb space and 1 GB bandwidth but being offered free.

But after he signed up, in the email he received it told him that this was a 12 month free "trial." Since he had already signed up, he thought he would still give it a chance.

So he got his website designed and uploaded. But it still wouldn't work.

After contacting support, he was surprised to be informed that what he was receiving free was "free parking". He would have to pay for hosting.

So beware similar practices from companies. Tell us if you have had a similar experience.

As an alternative, we recommend hosting at HostGator (use this 1 cent coupon.) or these reliable dedicated servers.
