About Us

We're a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization powered by a community of hobbyists that offer full-featured web hosting services for free.

  • We won't try to upsell you to any paid plans but if you appreciate our service we encourage you to make a tax deductible donation.
  • We own our own hardware, which we operate out of a professional datacenter in Silicon Valley. Having full-stack access enables us to offer features like unmetered bandwidth and unlimited inodes.
  • We're supported by an active community of volunteers who you can find on our support forums, in our Discord server, and even via telephone.
  • We've been offering free web hosting services to the community for over 19 years.
Our service is not free to run, and in fact in the last year we lost money. Please help support our mission of providing full-featured web hosting for free by donating today.

To be honest, I have only been with them for a little while, and as of yet I have no complaints. I would reccomend this site the way it operates, and the special features it has just make it all the more fun. I have only been on it two days, and I keep wanting to come back and post more to their forums. It has good speed and a nice help forum. I love their forums and the system they have... It is an awesome setup. I am really hyped about it. The server is reliable and speedy. I would greatly reccomend it.
The time I found HelioHost was like in early or mid 2019. I created an account on Johnny and uploaded my site to it. At that time I didn't have any spare money to buy hosting because I was a student. Since then, thanks to HelioHost, I managed to earn enough money to start my own business. After that I bought my own servers. This was all thanks to the amazing team of Heliohost. Thank you guys so much!
