I’m currently blogging in a WordPress site that has been created from a cpanel hosting account provided by Binil. Binil has been an actively contributing member of Gigarocket for several years, and when Gigarocket closed its door for further hosting, Binil stepped into the breach. Binil is confident that with advertising in the Forum one would be able to cover the costs of running a free hosting business.
So far this has been a very positive experience for me. Application for the hosting account went very fast and I was blown away with the quality of apps in cPanel. There are a number of tools that have been added, particularly in the SEO section that I have never seen before. So from a position of thinking I’ll never see cpanel again, I went to an improved cpanel with added bells and whistles.
It took about 24 hours for my account to be ready for publishing a site. Once ready it took approx 10 minutes to have a WordPress installation up and running. I’d say that was record fast by any standard. I chose to install my site manually through the File Manager just to get a taste of uploads and control over the mysql database. I downloaded WordPress 5.6 from WordPress.org site, unpacked it, and then zipped up the section that I uploaded to the root of my domain. Immediately after I was able to install my WordPress site. I have quite a variety of WordPress backups, so with the All in One WP Migration Tool, I was able to import one and edited it in its current form.
Well done Binil and wishing you the very best with your new venture!
