gigacities.net offers free hosting plan with lots of space, bandwidth, PHP/MySQL support, etc. However, free plan lacks some features like POP3 or SMTP mail server support, and PHP/MySQL functionality is limited too. While simple scripts should work well with PHP configuration on gigacities.net servers, some advanced websites may need to upgrade package to paid plan to get advanced PHP functions enabled.
While registration was fast, account activation form and control panel was slow. We didn't get any timeouts, but access was much slower than gigacities.net main page. In other case, you may always upgrade current package to paid one.
Another good thing is that even simple plan is advertisements-free and visitors will not see any pop-ups or banner ads while browsing your website hosted with gigacities.net, so it's worth to consider.
And this is a copy of their activation email:

Review of gigacities.net by Dennis on 2008/01/20 at 01:22Everything was just great with my site on Gigacities.net until a couple of days ago. In order to view the site I created above (pointsettweddings.com) I have to type in another URL I orinally signed on with. I have no way of redirecting the URL and I can't even create a new account the go that route. Unfortunately Gigacities has no support contact information.
