The Host-Ed.net services are something the company takes pride in: first, they have a range of servers located in the US, the Netherlands, and Germany; second, one can use their free server option to make up their mind whether they want a paid plan; and, third, the extended 90-day money back guarantee is there to help cement the experience. Their services range from free hosting to dedicated servers to domains and even free domains.
They have been around for quite a long time – since 2006, according to the website footer – and their page could benefit from revamping: the design is kind of outdated, but it’s not the main culprit, as it is quite difficult to navigate. There are reviews, and most of them are suspiciously positive, and old; nevertheless, having positive feedback does not mean it is faked, and several negative reviews are there to balance them. You can try their free hosting first and decide whether you want to invest in it later.
