    Is there any free hosting service available for an e-commerce site? disk size and bandwidth doesn't matter. main fact is website need uptime 100%, load faster and no ads
    I want to use my own google ads in my site. any trustable free hosting service you know?

    if free hosting doesn't available, what's the premium hosting service is best?

    Why would they host your site for free?

    100% uptime? o_O

    You want free ecommerce hosting, put some Google Ads on and start making money? :rolleyes:

    Do you really think business is that easy?

    Sounds like you need a high-end reliable service... probably something you should be willing to pay for.

    There is no good free hosting. If you want to do this seriously (ecommerce) , you need to buy hosting.

    Sounds like you want it all for free and will moan like a porn star in heat when it all goes wrong. When its free you can't moan about it when it goes down or it loads slowly what you want for free?

    Seriously get the moths out of your wallet/purse/manbag/handbag wherever and pay for something it's called business, and if you want to do it then expect to pay other's like hosting companies to help you do it. That way they will provide you with a good service and hopefully in return you get to do some business.

    When you have an e-commerce site, you will of course have costs. You will pay for a payment gateway (mostly percentage + fee for every transaction), domain name and many more things. When it comes to hosting you will not find any free hosting provider that can offer you a service with your specifications. So you will have to choose a paid option. Hosting is cheap considering what you get back once you get sales.

    Not true. There are some very good free hosting / methods of hosting for free. But they generally are only suitable for static sites or apps, and none I know of support MySQl databases, which limit their suitability for e-commerce.

    There is not such thing as "best free hosting", nothing free is good.

    Paying for something doesn't make it good either. And there are a lot of paid for hosts that are very bad.

    just google ads won't save you from the expenses with website and promotion.
