What you should find out about free-of-charge hosting

Many web hosting companies at present are delivering charge-free web hosting services, attracting more and more customers. The cost-free service is relevant if you own a personal website or if you do not wish to spend cash for a paid professional web page hosting account. Let's take a peek at some of the strengths and weaknesses of the charge-free web hosting solution in general.

Positive Side Number One: Free Web Hosting is... Free-of-Cost

The greatest upside is that you get a top free hosting solution - this would eliminate any costs associated with keeping a personal site, an online blog, a forum, or even a small-scale corporate website. Since the free website hosting service providers are also providing standard shared hosting plans, they will give their best to provide you with a decent service and to persuade you that their web servers are dependable. If you get a good free-of-cost service, it indicates that you'd receive an even greater paid service, so it is in their own interest to supply you with a steady charge-free site hosting solution. This will render you more prone to think about getting a cloud web hosting account from them in the future.

Strength Number Two: Spares You Cash

The free hosting solution is a suitable option if you do not want to invest cash in your web page or you are making your first moves in web page design and want to examine how well you can manage, but you are reluctant to pay for that. Plus, if you need a web site for a special event like a class gathering, a fund raising mission, or regional elections, you may think about a cost-free hosting account as you will not be constrained by any contracts and you will not need to pay on a monthly or yearly basis for the web space hosting package, which you may not even use after the occasion has gone by.

Drawback Number 1: Forced Advertisements

Irrespective of how decent the free website hosting service might seem, it also has shortcomings ? exactly because it is charge-free. Since the clients do not pay for their web hosting packages, the only way for the hosting vendor to offer this service is to incorporate advertisements on each page of your web site. Certain hosts even make use of pop-up windows and this may deter the guests to your website from exploring it or from returning again in the future. The ads will also make any corporate site appear unprofessional ? few people would purchase anything from a company that cannot afford to pay for its own personal web site.

Drawback No.2: Restricted Tech Support

There are some tech restrictions too. Since the hosting service is free-of-charge, the storage space, traffic and file size quotas are typically very inadequate, whereas electronic mail or database support is not always present. You can upgrade either the whole package to a reliable hosting package, or you can upgrade only a single feature, such as disk space, based on the upgrade options provided by the free web hosting service provider that you are utilizing. Another limitation is that you may obtain inadequate or no customer and tech support and that there is no warranty for the dependability of the web hosting servers. Every hosting service provider wants to offer stable services, but as long as you do not pay a single cent, as is the case with the free-of-charge site hosting solution, you cannot anticipate to receive such solutions.

Half-Priced Hosting - The Finer Option?

Judging the strengths and weaknesses of the free web site hosting service, you can determine whether you demand such a package or a paid professional one. Some web hosting web hosting suppliers such as 'DuoServers - Mega Hosting ', for instance, offer a bunch of standard web hosting plans that are very cheap and hugely exceed the resources provided by any cost-free site hosting package.
