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 domains.
  • We’re supported by an active community of volunteers who you can find on our support forums, in our discord chat room, and even via telephone.
  • We’ve been offering free web hosting services to the community for over 17 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.

Plesk Login Through HelioHost.org
We've updated https://heliohost.org to allow logins to Plesk. There have also been countless improvements under the hood to make the homepage faster and more secure. The main difference though is our main website is now running on PHP 8.0, but up until a few minutes ago was running on PHP 5.4 which lost active support almost 8 years ago. We have a lot more changes coming soon such as password resets, changing your main domain, upgrading your stor... Read more
New Account Signups
We're happy to announce that new account signups are beginning today. One year ago today without any warning we lost our cPanel licenses that we had been using for over 16 years. HelioHost has been through good times and bad, and the last year is definitely the worst we've experienced. We're coming back bigger and better than ever though. Starting today we will be sending out invites to create a new account on Plesk starting with our bi... Read more

Yes, there was high downtime...but that was an exceptional situation for maintenance. It was not intentional (because the main heliohost.org site was also down for some time). Let's be frank that you should not expect 99.99% uptime from a free server while the paid servers are even not able to provide such high uptime.
Great! It takes time, but everything good takes time. The admins and mods are nice as well. You can even get a domain name for free. I rate this hosting 9/10 because nothing is ever perfect.
