Hi fellow Experts. My absolute minimum requirements are only PHP/MySQL compatibility and FTP to upload files. Recently, maybe a week ago, I started using 000webhost to host my website. Seems ok for the money LOL, but is frequently slow, especially w/ FTP. It many times takes 1 minute or more for it to connect/upload a small HTML or PHP file. And that's even after uploading the same and / or different file within the previous 60 seconds.
I realize that I get what I pay for, and I'm quite satisfied so far with this service (other than the slowness). What I'm asking is what do you personally use for your free PHP/MySQL hosting? Please, no googled links, only real-world experience. 000webhost has no ads, but I'm not adverse to ads if I can get a speedier free web host.
