What you should know about free-of-charge web space hosting

Many hosting companies there days are offering free-of-cost website hosting services, enticing more and more clients. The free-of-charge solution is apt if you have a personal web page or if you don't want to spend money for a paid professional web site hosting account. Let's examine some of the strong and weak points of the cost-free web hosting service as a whole.

Perk Number 1: Free Site Hosting is... Free-of-Charge

The greatest advantage is that you receive a top free hosting service - this would exclude any expenses connected with keeping a personal site, an online blog, a forum, or even a small-size company web page. Since the free website hosting service providers are also providing regular shared hosting packages, they will try to offer you a rock solid service and to assure you that their web servers are reliable. If you obtain a satisfactory charge-free service, it signifies that you'd get an even greater paid service, so it is in their best interest to provide you with a decent free-of-charge website hosting solution. This will render you more likely to contemplate ordering a cloud web hosting account from them in the not too distant future.

Strong Side No.2: Spares You Money

The free hosting service is an acceptable option if you do not want to spend cash for your web site or you are making your first moves in web site design and want to discover how well you can do, but you are not willing to pay for that. What's more, if you would like a web site for a specific event such as a class assembly, a fundraising mission, or local elections, you may think about a free webspace hosting solution as you will not be bound by any service-level agreements and you will not need to pay on a monthly or yearly basis for the website hosting service, which you may not even make use of once the event has gone by.

Weak Point Number 1: Forced Ads

Regardless of how fine the free web hosting service might appear, it also has minuses ? precisely because it is free. Since the customers do not pay for their web hosting packages, the only way for the web hosting firm to offer this solution is to insert commercials on each page of your site. Some web hosting suppliers even make use of pop-up windows and this may hinder the visitors to your website from examining it or from returning again in the future. The advertisements will also make any corporate online portal seem amateurish ? few people would buy anything from a web hosting provider that cannot afford to pay money for its own web page.

Shortcoming Number Two: Restricted Technical Support

There are some technical restrictions too. Since the hosting service is free-of-charge, the server storage, traffic and file size quotas are normally very restricted, while electronic mail or database support is not always present. You can upgrade either the entire plan to a reliable hosting plan, or you can upgrade only one single functionality, such as data space, based on the upgrade possibilities offered by the free web hosting provider that you are availing of. Another minus is that you may obtain inadequate or no customer and tech support and that there is no guarantee for the dependability of the web servers. Every web hosting vendor would like to offer dependable services, but since you do not pay a single coin, as is the case with the charge-free web space hosting solution, you cannot hope to obtain such solutions.

Inexpensive Hosting - The Finer Option?

Judging the strengths and weaknesses of the cost-free website hosting solution, you can select whether you need such an account or a paid professional one. Certain web hosting hosting corporations such as 'Ford Web Consulting ', for example, provide a bouquet of regular web hosting plans that are very cheap and enormously surpass the resources furnished by any charge-free web hosting package.
