  1. Is this still possible today? I'm being offered a $300 credit for the next 90 days and from what I saw, their cheapest plan is around $35 to $50. I'm an aspiring Freelancer and just wanted a simple WordPress website for myself as a Virtual Assistant/Freelancer.

  2. Is anyone else having file permissions warnings? I am trying to upload a theme zip file via the normal tools, and I am getting this: "Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2021/02. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

    I have checked that my folder permissions are at 755 and files att 644.

  3. 1 dollar is not free !!!! im looking for free webhost becoz i cant pay a penny !!! my shitty country doesnt allow us to transfer money outside the country !!!!
