Most of us know free web hosting is cheap and you don’t need to spend much on hosting your website, yet all such free web hosting organizations uses this freemium model to advance their premium services.
You might not know the free web hosting providers can close their free services at any time which may put your business into risk. Yet, they will inform you before closing down their services according to the terms and conditions. But, what is the use of it? You need to move all the content to the new server which is very difficult and time taking process. Likewise if they close new registrations and keep safe their hosted domains then you can divert your links to your new domain, else if that they totally close off their services, and then you can’t divert your old links. Therefore, all your old links will turn out to be dead.
Such a large number of things on the web work on the freemium model, so we are all acclimated to expect freebies. In any case, in the event that you are a business, the one thing that you certainly need to put resources into is your web presence. Given the minimal effort of web hosting and the domain registrations nowadays, it is basically not justified, despite any potential benefits to utilize free web hosting.
Here are few common issues and burdens with your hosting account, when you grab it for free,
- Poor/No Customer Support
Your site crashes. Database gets lost. Somebody hacked your site. It’s your problem, and you can’t anticipate that your free host will solve it. They won’t give 24×7 Live Chat or Ticket system.
Regardless of the fact that you mail to the default Support email address (say email@example.com), it will take years to get an answer, I bet that will likewise be a default one like, “Your question has been gotten and an individual from our staff will survey it and answer in like manner.” The End.
If suppose you ask, “Why might somebody give something for nothing?”, the expression “Ad” becomes an integral factor. They adapt your account or your website and gain through it.
In return for your free hosting space, they will keep promotions on your site. These advertisements support your free host and give them the money back they contributed. The notices will be regularly appear and pop-under.
In Websites : They used to show a leaderboard advertisement at the highest point of each site hosted on their free hosting servers.
In cPanel and Plesk : That’s not the end, they’ll additionally put a few promotions in your cPanel or Plesk, and you have to reconsider before clicking a link, that may be a commercial.
- Poor Downtime
You won’t have stable uptime. Since it is free you can expect more number of clients there. Free has won’t have much asset to control every one of those clients, so you can expect a decent downtime from time to time. You would prefer not to baffle your audience with a “Server Not Found” or any such mistakes right?
You compose some amazing posts and it gets viral, following day in the event that you check the Analytics it will be underneath the typical extent. Why? Site gets down in view of that viral activity.

- Loss of Credibility

It won’t be useful for marking your online journals or sites. When somebody discovers that you are utilizing such has, they rarely approach you for any service or analysis about hosting.
- Absence of Security

- Moderate Loading Pages
Keep in mind Google abhors that. All the more vitally, your audience detests that. You don’t need your audience to bookmark your post (say some instructional exercise) and overlook that totally right?

Trimmed down apache servers will have constrained modules or a few modules would be impaired. What’s the major ordeal? You won’t have the capacity to introduce some top modules like W3 Total Cache where such modules are required.

I hate Hidden expenses. They need to be authentic about their service. Free has, similar to the name says, are not allowed to the center. They may have concealed expenses, particularly when you cross the permitted free portion. They’ll additionally charge additional for other fundamental elements. Ordinarily you won’t be permitted to utilize fantisto, which is regularly used to introduce programming like WordPress. They’ll either restrict the use or expenses to utilize them.

- You possess your own Blog, reconsider?

Assume if your free host is sold to some other organization, then that could be the end of your online journal. Be the proprietor of your blog, as well as the domain.
- Google Apps Integration
I got notification from numerous that free has won’t bolster Google Apps. You would prefer not to miss your magnificent firstname.lastname@example.org email address right? The default email records will likewise suck.
- The last one: You can purchase one!
It couldn’t be any more obvious, hosting space is not excessive. You simply need to pick the privilege monetary one for your site. You can make utilization of “The shopping extravaganza following Thanksgiving” and “The Monday following Thanksgiving” offers for getting energizing offers. In the event that you don’t have the cash to purchase web hosting for a year, you can select month to month package.
