What would be the difference between this and say 000webhost, for example? On the surface, they both offer a free service, but it appears 000webhost provides a lot more features. Not trying to crap this free service you're offering, but would like to learn the differences. TIA!
We are Canadian and this is really more of a demo service. We wouldn't recommend free hosting for anything important. It's really worth it to spend the few dollars a month and get a proper service with backups, support and the full feature list. Especially when it comes down to the cost of a cup of coffee or 2 a month.

Are we allowed to change the domain that we've attached to the free hosting?
I opened a support ticket asking this about 4 months ago, and it was eventually just closed without a response.
I used other hosting for the domain instead.

I've since bought another new domain and asked again a couple of days ago but still no response.
Can I assume that we're stuck with the domain we first registered with?
What's your ticket number? I can take a look at this for you.
We can't provide priority support for the free plan so those support tickets get placed in our low priority queue.

Just an update, I was able to get the domain changed this time, so you are able to use a new domain if you ask support. My first ticket probably wasn't clear enough because the second one got answered after a few days.

I posted in the forums at hosterbox, but any reason why certain emails cannot be replied too? @hotmail, @me (never heard of this but someone emailed me from this one) gets blocked. Looks to be that those emails are in the hosterbox block list?

Anyway, this would be a huge setback if I cannot reply to all emails I receive. Overall I really like the service and I'm even thinking of going with the basic 4$ monthly (BTW, is this CAD or USD?)

The IP has been added to a few blocklists due to spam/abuse related to offering a free service like this. I would really recommend one of our premium plans if you're doing anything important with the account. We run Mailchannels on our premium servers so spam never gets sent from our servers and our IP reputation stays clean.

As for the free hosting server, we are working on cleaning up the blocks. If you do want to upgrade just open a support ticket referencing this post and I can give you a free 30 day trial to try it out.
