Error 500 which appears on the top left on those web pages hosted on Free Hostinger web-host is a common one which many web-masters do experiencing from time to time and in many cases, its only after sending a support ticket to customer service which solves the problem after the issue being looked at and handled at their end. And while many of us love such free offers, we should note that they tend not to work just like the paid side and which is why such errors occur.
When I read a certain thread in one Forum about the same issue and which seemed not to be solved, I decided to do some research and which I begun by temporarily changing one of my clients domain name by pointing it to Hostinger after I created an account and I was ready to host my site.
After a few minutes, my domain had already propagated and I even managed to install WordPress using their auto script installation. And after, the site was live and I even published an article which I had already drafted but guess what, immediately I published it, I encountered the above error 500 and which I never recognized at first.
Instead of something like CPU usage, bandwidth exceed and or any other, what happens is that a small 500 number appears on the top left side of the site and which means that you can’t access the site not until it disappears.
And when you contact support through an email as many in their Forums recommend, you are most likely to get the below message.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience but we sometimes have overload issues on our free servers. Please understand that we’re trying our best to offer free service.
But, a newly created website might not have suffered such error not so. Okay, here are some of the solutions I found which helped me where by one had my problem solved.
1. Upgrading to a paid plan.
2. Waiting until the server load reduces.
3. Sending a support ticket.
4. Changing the server IP address
5. Try other free-hosting providers who suffer no such problems.
