Fastest Free Web Hosting site?

The graph chart below shows a list of free PHP web hosts that a custom PHP benchmarking script has been run on, which calculates the average execution / processing times in milliseconds (ms) the server takes to process complex mathematical formula.  The test is repeated 12 times at 5-second intervals.  The test results from the webhost speed / performance benchmark script are then sorted from best (fastest; lowest PHP execution times) to the worst (slowest; highest numbers). There are currently about 100 Free PHP Web Hosting sites listed with reviews on, Free-webhosts has tested most of the popular free hosting companies with the largest infrasturcture which are most likely to be the fastest in the world.

The Free PHP benchmark performance script (download free) that was used for benchmarking the free PHP web hosting services performs some simple math and string functions 20,000 times each, and measures how long it takes to complete the PHP execution (this speed calculation does not include MySQL database queries or page loading times). This was repeated 12 times via a Javascript redirect to the script again, with 5 second delays. Then the average completion time was computed after removing the highest and lowest script execution times (in other words, the benchmark score is the average of the middle 10 scores).

"I was very surprised at the fastest free hosts listed. In fact, several of the fastest free web servers below were faster than a very expensive managed dedicated server I rent, and much faster than the dedicated web hosting server this website is hosted on." By the owner of
