15 years ago on March 2nd 2005 HelioHost was born.

 

The last 15 years have had their ups and downs, but we managed to weather everything that was thrown our way and even thrive. We adamantly stuck to our ideals to continue providing free web hosting to thousands of users worldwide, and have grown considerably along the way. We started as a simple forum and cPanel reseller plan, then we moved to a VPS, followed by renting a dedicated server. After that in 2008 we bought our first server, Stevie, and two years later in 2010 we bought our second server, Charlie. Then in 2016 we bought our third server, Eddie. In 2018 we ran dangerously low on storage space so we reached out to the community by starting a fundraiser to buy more hard drive space. The fundraiser was a success and we used the extra space to create a Windows server named Lily. The extra storage space that the community funded has also allowed us to start offering affordable VPS subscriptions in addition to our free shared hosting plans. Finally, in 2019 we ran another successful fundraiser to buy our fourth server, Sparkie.

 

We're not done either. We will continue to do what we're doing for as long as there is a need for free hosting. Who knows what the future will bring?

Happy birthday Heliohost. We don't deserve you. Yet here you are, being the best free host 15 years later. Do not ever stop doing what you do. The literal internet will not be the same without you.

¬°Happy Birthday Heliohost!  Thank you very much and I wish you to have more years of fun while living up to your ideals.

 

Imagine that in another 10 or so years, many of those future Heliohost users will not even have been born when Heliohost started!

We have at least one user that is 14. HelioHost existed before he was even born.
