  1. Another Freehost:

    Zymic
    http://www.zymic.com
    WordPress runs but with limitations, especially PHP mail() is disabled (can be purchased, but then it’s no more free)
    some plugins do not work caused by restrictions
    also a plugin using smtp of gmail (to solve the mail problem) does not work cause smtp and fopen() are also disabled

  2. Another good Freehost:

    Frihost
    http://www.frihost.com
    very good performance
    No major problems with WordPress and Plugins

    Frihost can be highly recommended

  3. Frihost can’t longer recommended!
    I was using Frihost – and it deleted the blog without prior notice. The host requires activities within their forums – inactivity leads to deletion of the hosted websites!
