Up Time: testing
HourB.com provides completely free, ad free, unlimited web hosting for your blog or website. You can use your own domain name (TLD) or get a free sub-domain to use for your website. They also provide SSH access to your account.
The signup process for HourB’s free web hosting account was quick and simple. Once sign up was completed an email was received providing all the necessary details for the new account.
Control Panel & Features
The control panel is clean and simple. It looks and operates very similar to the cPanel ® brand control panel. HourB’s control panel does contain all the needed features to manage a successful website. It has email management, email forwarders, domain and database management features. It also has some security features, such as hotlink protection.
Install and setting up WordPress was incredibly easy using the Auto Installer feature in the control panel. Just had to provide the admin username and password. The installer took care of creating the database, database user, copying the WordPress files and configuring WordPress all with one-click.
The default WordPress install from the Auto Installer was a couple of version older than the current version of WordPress, so an update was required. Updating through WordPress’s built-in updater was successful and had no issues. The update page did take a little while to load, but once it finished, it was complete and up to date.
