Re: Free vs Paid Web Hosting

Unless your website requires the specific features offered by the paid hosting plans, free web hosting services might be all you need and especially if you are aiming to save on money without compromising on the performance.

Re: Free vs Paid Web Hosting

I always prefer paid hosting. The main problems with free hosting are

1.You don’t own your own site, you have no power over its existence or presence. The company can decide to take away your free-dom any time. Your site can be removed for many reasons.

2.When you use free webhosting, you are paying for it by allowing the host to place advertisements on your website. You will have banners and/or pop-up ads on your homepage and/or all of your pages. You will have no control over the kind of ads that show up on your site or how they show up on your website.

3.It’s not just the visitors to your website, but the search engines will also not take you quite as seriously.

It is always better to choose paid hosting. There are different hosting providers are offering different packages. You may take a look here

Re: Free vs Paid Web Hosting

At some point your website/blog will outgrow the features offered by free web hosting providers.

Free web hosting companies need to make money somehow. They do this by inserting advertising into your page. You have no control over what advertising is shown. What if a competitor’s ad is shown or an ad inappropriate for your target audience is shown

When using a free web hosting service there is no guarantee that they will stick around. A some point, even large providers of free hosting decide to pack it in

Re: Free vs Paid Web Hosting

Free Blog Hosting is not good enough:

Free blog are not good enough for making money. Those who want to make money self-hosted blog is perfect for them Free blog are just so limited that’s why it’s not a good decision for move toward Free blog host.

Limited control:

One main reason that move toward the free host is that it’s limited your control Most free blogs don’t allow you to tweak the coding. This might be not valuable for newbie bloggers but one day they will in need it. Blog that run into your own frame work might be difficult to build in free blogging.

Not Good for Google ranking:

Most of blogger well known that Google does not give weight to free blogs if search rank is concern. Question is this that why Google not rank free blogs? This is because that Google don’t rank them as being as authoritative.

You can’t own it:

In my opinion one of the major drawback of free blog are that you don’t really own your blog but provider does it all. So why you work hard for years to build up that don’t you fully own.

Design options are Limited:

When you host your site in a reliable server with your own domain you will have full freedom to design your site or blog according to your desires. Full freedom to hire a designer or upload a free theme for your blog. On the other hand you can’t do this operation with free web hosted site.

Not good for branding:

Most of the people don’t familiar with that how important is domain name for branding or services. Some of free web hosting services provide offer better services but it’s mostly the area of paid web hosting services provider companies. To be successful it’s more important that work with your own website to building up your brand.

In simple word the most reliable and professional way to have a good internet appearance your own domain name and host is perfect.
