What do I need to get free hosting ?

  2. Use legitimate personal information during sign up (We do this to prevent fraud and spam. We will not reveal or sell your information to 3rd party!)
  3. A valid registered domain name (If you don't have one, you may order one through us) **If you register your domain through us or transfer the domain to us, we will bump the disk space to 300MB, monthly data transfer to 4000MB and the FULL 270+ scripts auto installer**
  4. That's it!
How to signup
1) Place an order through this link - No Longer Available due to mod's decision Link ~ Fill in your RFD username for verification purpose (Important)
2) When entering your personal information. Select Paypal as your billing method and then enter the Promotional code "RFDFREE".
3) After the order is placed Like our Facebook page then post a comment that said "Getting my web site hosted with DirectHosting, please activate my order #" (Fill in your order number into the #). Then come back to this thread and make a post that said "Activate my order!" (You must like our facebook page)
3) Once we match the username and order number, we will manually review the order. Once it has been approved, we will send out an email with your new account information.

P.S - Please do not waste our time and yours by signing up with fake personal information. All fake accounts will be cancelled and deleted.

What is the catch?
There are none! We will never start charging your account. Your hosting will always be free!
You do need to provide your own domain name or you could register a new one from us.

What's not included?
Due to our limited resources. We cannot provide free technical support for our free hosting clients. We have setup a community forums for our fellow free hosters to share tips and help each other!
Domain name - You must already have a registered domain name. If you don't own a domain name you may register a domain through us and enjoy additional free resources.

Some extra info
  • Limited to one account per person, anybody found to have more than 1 account will have all accounts terminated.
  • We reserved the rights to terminate any account that are deemed to have inappropriate content

I have not received my welcome email!
First, check if you are eligible for the hosting. (See the post above)
Second, check your spam folder.
Third, if you are sure you are eligible and have not receive the welcome email. Post a request on our community forums.
(Note, a lot of people are signing up with domains that have not been registered. We only activate orders when a domain is valid "meaning it is registered", if it is not registered you may register it through us.

You need to own the domain first. We don't provide free domain names.
