Hi Meir.

Being in a company we do provide free hosting to our clients without any advertising. We do it just to oblige our client for being so good and calm with us. So to maintain the ongoing relationship we do provide free hosting.

There will always be different perception for it, sometimes we provide free hosting for just branding. So nothing wrong in using the service but need to check every detail that the site is hosted on trustable hosting not just any random which may cost huge in future. :)

My server admin had this to say :

1. Plenty of bad reviews.

2. There's seem to be no way that you contact the support except via web form.

3. Lack of documentation such as privacy policies, backup policies, SLA etc.

As for me, no way. Actually, not even paid hosting. I switched to a dedicated server a couple of years ago and there's no going back from that - it'd be like moving out from a private house back into college dorms.

Generally speaking though, I've never seen a free hosting that allowed a separate domain - they always host your pages under their own domain, which immediately tells your visitors that you're not a real website. Sometimes it doesn't matter, but more often it does.
I don't know if that is true for 000webhost, but they do state that domain is not included in the free package, so at the very least you have to pay for the domain itself, which means that the free hosting still costs you money.
In any case, based on the provided parameters, the free package is suitable for a small personal or small business website, nothing more.

You can try free plans at hosting platforms such as Heroku, Dotcloud or Appfog. For a basic website, even if it's a dynamic one, they provide enough resources (memory, disc space, custom web domains, SSL, etc) on free plans, without any ads. Technical support will be via web forms or email. Once you need more resources/faster technical support, you will be able to switch to a paid plan, and their plans are very flexible.
