No more free hosting through webhostingforstudents.com?

It looks like there is only an 8% discount thought webhostingforstudents.com. Are there any other free web hosting sites, or will I have to pay for one (test site)?

Depends on what you need, but for testing purposes, you could have a wordpress site on https://c9.io with a free account. The free account will be big enough to play around with wordpress, and you'll have a real URL that you can go to on any device to see what your site looks like on multiple devices, or if you are sending or receiving api calls, it works fine for that as well.

It is in no means to be a production server at all, but I use C9 all the time for similar reasons.

Hi Shawn,

I ran into the same issue and did some searching on my own and ran across one.com

Here is my referral link - http://one.me/enaktwvl

You get $2 towards it which I think puts it at around $1 for a year and it includes the domain.

They have a one button wordpress install, email, etc. I have setup WooCommerce for testing and playing around without issue. While it is not free, it is really cheap for 1 year.
