Create a Hosting Service

Learn how to start utilizing Gilect Cloud to create free websites.

What is Gilect's free Hosting?

Our free hosting offers you free hosting services. Our free hosting has unlimited disk space, bandwidth, and supports PHP and MySQL (meaning you can run WordPress on it!) Additionally, you can also choose whether you want a free subdomain name from us ( ) or if you already have a domain and want to use it with your free website.

You can create your hosting through your Gilect Central account.

How many websites can I create?

You can have a maximum of three hosting services in a Gilect Central account. Creating multiple Gilect Central accounts to get past this limit is not allowed. However, each service allows you to create unlimited websites, but they all share the same limits.

If you need more services, you can upgrade to premium.

What’s included in a hosting service

When you add a hosting service, a new VistaPanel (abbreviated to CPanel) is created. CPanel is the control panel that Gilect uses to manage your websites. It is with this CPanel account that you can manage your websites, domains, FTP, databases, etc.

You will also get access to the online file manager, as well as PHPMyAdmin for managing databases.

What are the limits?

Your CPanel account comes with 1 FTP, unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited MySQL databases, and unlimited addon/sub/alias domains.

Creating the hosting service.

Creating a hosting service is easy! First, make sure you are on the Gilect Central dashboard ( If you scroll down, you’ll notice the page is divided into two sections: hosting services and SSL certificates. For now, we only want to create a new hosting service, so ignore the SSL certificates and press “Create”

Next, you’ll be prompted to either select a free subdomain or custom domain.

Free subdomain

If you don’t have a domain, don’t worry! Gilect provides you free subdomains, which you can use to create your website. Later on, you can change your free subdomain, or add a custom domain.

Type in your free subdomain of choice and press “Select.”

If your selected subdomain is available, congratulations! Press the “Create” button to continue.

Custom domain?

Already have your own domain? No problem Select the “custom domain” tab, check if you’re domain is allowed, and press the “Create” button.

Please note that .tk domains are banned, due to abuse in the past. However, other free domains (such as .ml) are still allowed.


If you use a custom domain, you need to set up your nameservers to link your domain to Gilect. This is done through your domain provider’s panel.

Please set your nameservers to:



If you are using a free subdomain you can skip this step


Congratulations! You have created your first hosting service! You should be redirected back to the homepage, where you can see and edit your hosting service.
