What you should comprehend about free-of-cost hosting
Many web hosting suppliers now are providing free-of-cost hosting packages, drawing more and more customers. The free-of-charge solution is adequate if you have a personal online portal or if you are reluctant to invest money for a paid professional website hosting solution. Let's review some of the positive and negative aspects of the free-of-charge web page hosting service in general.
Positive Point No.1: Charge-Free Web Hosting is... Free-of-Charge
The most positive aspect is that you get a top free hosting solution - this would exclude any costs associated with keeping a personal web site, an online blog, a forum, or even a small-sized company page. Since the free site hosting suppliers are also furnishing standard shared hosting plans, they will endeavor to provide you with a reliable service and to persuade you that their web servers are reliable. If you get a satisfactory charge-free service, it signifies that you'd receive an even finer paid service, so it is in their best self-interest to offer you a dependable cost-free web space hosting service. This will make you more likely to contemplate getting a cloud web hosting solution from them in the future.
Positive 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 portal or you are performing your first moves in website design and would like to see how well you can manage, but you are reluctant to pay money for that. Furthermore, if you need a web portal for a specific event such as a class reunion, a fund raising operation, or local elections, you may consider a free website hosting plan as you will not be restrained by any service contracts and you will not have to pay on a monthly or yearly basis for the webspace hosting service, which you may not even use after the event has passed.
Negative Point No.1: Forced Ads
Regardless of how apt the free-of-charge website hosting solution might appear, it also has negative points ? exactly because it is free. Since the clients do not pay for their web site hosting plans, the only way for the web hosting corporation to provide this solution is to put commercials on each page of your web portal. Certain web hosting distributors even avail of pop-up windows and this may prevent your website guests from examining it or from coming back again in the future. The commercials will also render any company page seem unprofessional ? few people would buy anything from a web hosting company that cannot afford to pay money for its own online portal.
Drawback No.2: Minimal Technical Support
There are some technical restrictions too. Because the hosting service is charge-free, the storage space, monthly traffic and file size quotas are traditionally very insufficient, whereas electronic mail or database support is not invariably available. You can upgrade either the entire package to a reliable hosting plan, or you can upgrade just one single functionality, such as web storage, based on the upgrade options given by the free web host that you are using. Another shortcoming is that you may get minimal or no customer and technical support and that there is no guarantee for the stability of the hosting servers. Every web hosting provider would like to provide reliable solutions, but since you do not pay a single penny, as is the case with the cost-free hosting service, you cannot demand to obtain such solutions.
Half-Priced Site Hosting - The Finer Alternative?
Weighing the positive and negative aspects of the charge-free web page hosting solution, you can opt whether you require such an account or a paid professional one. Some web hosting hosting providers like '9 Cube Hosting ', for example, offer a bouquet of traditional web hosting packages that are very cheap and vastly surpass the resources furnished by any free web page hosting package.
