was founded in 2004 and is now 13 years in business.
x10hosting.com contains very nice layout, and whole website is easy to navigate... except signup form. After clicking registration link we were asked to choose between available packages - without ads, and with forced ads (ads-sponsored package includes more space and bandwidth). Trying to register for ads-free package didn't work - we were redirected to same page again and again. But after choosing package with ads, registration form was working just perfect.
As soon as required fields were filled out, we got confirmation email and cPanel account was created within next few minutes. After doing some more tests we found x10hosting.com user area is hard to understand (while main website should be easy to navigate even for newbies), but their service is good enough - no major slowdowns or timeouts. Another thing we like about x10hosting.com - if standard PHP configuration on server is not suitable for you, you may ask their team to upgrade PHP (good reason to do so will be required, of course).
Basically, we have no more complaints about x10hosting.com, and it's really worth to consider.
And this is a copy of their activation email:

Review of x10hosting.com by Candice on 2009/08/01 at 15:34Although this host may seem good on the surface, do not be fooled. The staff are rude and unhelpful in email correspondance. They suspend your site if you do not sign in to it within every 2 weeks, and delete it 10 days after this without any kind of notice or email to say this is the situation. When this happened to me and I tried to get the html or the site back, I was told it was my own fault & the member of staff who dealt with me was incredibly rude and not bothered at all that I had spent hours and hours building the site. DO NOT USE! Try another free host, as I will be doing.
Review of x10hosting.com by Chungyen Chang on 2009/07/29 at 15:20Those two negative reviews for June and July came in at the same time I did...right in the middle of a massive server maintence/move. If these people had gone to the forums and actually read the service notices they would know that. Unfortunately, a lot of people these days refuse to find information on their own, and want it handed to them instead.
During this server maintenence, despite handling hundreds of thousands of accounts, and despite having to work overtime, my support tickets were answered extremely quickly, in under 24 hours. Now that the maintenence is over, my uptime is 99%. Definitely worth the wait to save me the 100 bucks I was giving up for paid hosting.

Review of x10hosting.com by Dan on 2009/07/20 at 17:26x10Hosting is an excellent free hosting. The uptime is stable now, they already upgrade their server for better uptime. I recommended it over all free hosting because they allow me to host my own files(software products), cPanel 11+, and their daily backups. They have a large forum community with over 230,000 members! You are not alone.. Kudos!
Review of x10hosting.com by Dave on 2009/07/13 at 19:58Crap site. My site is down half the time. Site is unnavigable because of their slow servers. 000webhost.com has much faster servers, but no longer has Cpanel or the features I need. What a shame :(

Review of x10hosting.com by JCJC on 2009/04/08 at 13:15Wow, You guys really talk-out my
I am glad I am not only one who felt x10hosting (ad-free) are HORRIBLE.... Every time I am trying to access my web site (and I am only access one time per week)... I already experiencing 60% of downtime. Apache is always down. Horrible experience... It is so SHAMEFULL when I have to show my friend my work (different time to different friend) ..x10hosting status tell me my site is down... Please stop going there for free-ad version...
Review of x10hosting.com by x10 User on 2009/03/22 at 06:50I'll be leaving x10hosting as soon as I can. I appreciate it's free, and that you can't expect a 100% reliable service, but my site has only been up about 10% of the time since January 2009. Even for a free service, that's very poor. 9/10 times I visit my site it's down.
Review of x10hosting.com by Kid_Chino on 2009/03/10 at 11:02I was on X10hosting's free package (Ad-Free) hosting an IPB Board for my gaming clan. Found that the servers were slow at times and down every couple of weeks. I decided to move to their paid hosting and I couldn't be happier. My account was transferred 2 hours after i paid. Servers are fast and haven't experienced any of the problems with free hosting. I didn't have many complains with the free service because, well, IT WAS FREE. If you want 99.9% reliability and up-time then get one of there paid plans and stop complaining.
