How to obtain a 000webhost site and upload files

The interface, and in particular the file management tools at 000webhost are in a generalized state of flux. Here’s are step-by-step instructions to navigate creating a site, and uploading content to it.

To create a site for yourself at 000webhost, follow these steps:

  1. In a browser, navigate to

  2. Click on Free Sign Up
  3. In the FREE Sign Up form, enter your name (a nickname is fine), a valid email address, and a domain name you’d like to have. 000webhost will generate a domain name something like what you request.
  4. Click the GET FREE HOSTING button
  5. After verifying your email address, click on the Upload Files button.
  6. Then click on the Upload Files Now button.
  7. Select the public_html folder
  8. Click the Upload Files icon in the toolbar
  9. Click the Select Files button. Select files from your computer, and then click Upload in the Upload files box

After the pages upload, go check out your site online!

Tip: The free hosting provided by 000webhost is not as robust, fast, or reliable as that provided by paid hosting sites. So, be prepared for occasional slow uploads and down time. I wanted to be sure that the cost of Web hosting would not keep anyone from uploading files and experiencing building a real online Website. But you are free to elect to use a paid hosting site if you prefer for class.

    You can get free hosting at The “catch” if you want to call it that, is you have to buy a domain name. But you can find those online for under $10 if you’re not fussy about the domain name extension.

  2. S.V. January 31, 2018 at 1:43 am has a similar deal, but I found it easier because you can register the domain name and get cheap hosting – one-stop shopping. I paid a dollar for a .club domain name, and about $10 for the first year. But like the article says, you have to cancel at the end of the year or rates go up. Kind of like those “Free HBO” deals you get when you sign up for Cable, so don’t forget to cancel the site before the year is up.
