Hi everyone , today we are gonna discuss another free web hosting provider. In 2003 AwardSpace started its mission. The company was originated from two companies. A free HTML hosting development company called Zetta and a software development and sourcing company named AttractSoft GmbH.
They offer a free LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) hosting, shared premium hosting, semi-dedicated hosting, VPS cloud hosting, free reseller hosting services, a vast range of domain names and SSL certificates.
Most hosting providers use third party platforms for installation of their clients’ CMSs but AwardSpace developed their own, called Zacky Tools Installer. For premium customers the full version is available but for free hosting users they offer only Joomla and WordPress automatic installations.
One of the key things that made it distinctive was Its automatic account upgrade process from a free hosting account to a premium hosting account.
