Sure, our free address, being a true subdomain webspace, may seem somewhat long-winded than a true website, but has actually presented no issues when posted as a link, or as a QR code for quick and easy smartphone access.
And... More what we really appreciated was that, in return for this amazing free service, 000webhost posts only a tiny 2" x 1/4" (48mm x 7mm) "Powered by 000webhost" logo in the bottom-right of the webpage, when viewed on desktops and laptops. As our site has no commercial ads whatsoever, this was especially important.
For the beginner, 000webhost offers free, simple and intuitive website/webspace builders: Zyro, WordPress, or Wix.
And here's another option: Being novices at this, but still wanting full control of the webspace layout, we quickly and easily composed our webspace on Microsoft Word, landscape format, saved it as a HTML file, and uploaded it: index.html + loose images to our public_html folder in the 000webhost FTP site.
As for our audio tracks and video clips, we simply linked images in our files to unique DropBox addresses that we uploaded to DropBox. This greatly reduced the burden on our free 000webhost "Monthly Bandwidth Quota" (10 GB max), especially since we opted for much larger, but more universally accepted MP3 and AVI files.
As for motion gif files, we opted to upload them (along with our Image#.jpg files) to our public_html folder in the 000webhost FTP site (instead of DropBox). But our version of Microsoft Word only saves motion gif images as a single frame gif image in our index.html folder. So we correct for this by carefully renaming each motion gif file to exactly the same as the single frame gif in the index.html, and copy the much larger motion gif (Image#.gif), replacing the useless single frame gif (Image#.gif).
Out of necessity, our webpage is structured as simply a very LONG but quite functional one index page, as 000webhost seems to only allow one single webpage for free users, instead of the usual multiple webpages allowed in most pay sites. But our webspace is still quite functional and professional in appearance, and provides the illusion of a simple, compelling, and organized multi-page website with convenient navigation bars throughout.
000webhost also provides basic webspace reporting statistics, such as "Requests Per Minute,"Monthly Bandwidth Quota" (10 GB max), "Disk Space Quota" (1 GB max), "Inode Usage Quota" (20 GB max), and "Sendmail Daily Quota" (50 per day max). These are useful tools for trimming out bandwidth waste, as well as basic feedback on marketing / promotion efforts.
Due to high amounts of users on the 000webhost free platform, some may face issues logging into the 000webhost FTP site: timeouts, etc., or when they access FTP / File Manager it may sometimes load slowly, performing under what it should be.
But when the free 000webhost FTP site is down, one is simply denied entry, stating "Log in details are not correct."
But our always trusty 000webhost subdomain webspace has never, ever experienced any downtime.
A final cautionary note:
While 000webhost provides free subdomain webspace hosting, only a maximum of 150 unique daily visits (150 different people) is allowed. And 000webhost will abruptly and permanently suspend anyone's free webspace the very day that might happen.
At that point, a visit to your free 000webhostapp.com webspace will display a 000webhost generated webpage that simply states that your webspace is "Sleeping" and an email from 000webhost will inform you that your free 000webhost webspace has been suspended for "abusive behavior" (that your allocated website resources are being overused).
Harsh words for simply having more than 150 visitors on one day.
And while the 000webhost staff promises to "gladly help you get back online" if you want to continue using your webspace, their options are limited to upgrading your webspace, from a free webspace to modest paid website options.
But we can't complain, as we enjoyed several years with our free 000webhost webspace before it was suspended.
And unwilling to pay for our fun unique webspace, we simply walked away from our free 000webhost webspace... and started up another free 000webhost webspace and uploaded our index.html + loose images to the public_html folder in our new 000webhost FTP site... and informed our friends of the change.
As such, we highly recommend 000webhost, as we can gladly vouch for their free service. Less

Not reliable with hosting anymore. Contact only works through chat, which spits out vague comments. Used to be good but have dropped the ball.
When you create an account it will ask for project name and you cannot skip it. If you enter project name it will ask that name is already exist. When you try to enter another name it says'too many requests' and then we have ... More to wait for hours. After you create a website it will archive your account and click restore. It will be pending to review and your site will not be available live for hours or days.
Don't waste your time. I recommend hostbreak fast and affordable. Less
