    When searching for a free web hosting company you should not only look on the price and features, but also search for some real customer reviews. Many offer the same features for only $1 per month, but the service and up time is not always the same. In addition you would waste too much time, if you always import your website to various web hosting services and then wait for your domain to point to their servers.

    I completely agree on you about reading reviews while testing hosting.I generally search for reviews of everything like GPT sites,Offers,anything relevant to know the exact status of the offers/company.

    There is no need to look for prices if the company you are looking at is a free host. :p But anyways, a good tip when looking for hosting that is offered for free is seeing what features that are offered that the other company you looked at doesn't as well as reviews. You can do a simple google search for the company to find reviews on various different sites so you get a general outlook on what everyone thinks of the company and service. But you must remember, when you pay for hosting, you pay for security and quality service in most cases. There are plenty of reputable companies that offer cheap hosting for only a couple dollars a month such as Empire Hostings that offers you hosting for as low as $2 a month. With this cheap service, they still maintain quality service and support. Some free hosts will take days to fix a simple 5 minute problem, so that's a huge disadvantage there. If you are still looking for a free host, I would suggest Zymic Hosting, they offer 6 GB of Diskspace and 100 GB of monthly bandwidth transfer. :)
