Free Webhosting – Another Option to Paid WebHosting.
Another option you can go with is free hosting, there are multiple ways this can be a choice. One way is to go with a hosting with site builder like webs and Wix. I really like these sites for starting out, they are great for learning the ins and outs of website making but really they are not professional enough for a site you want to be popular. The other type of free hosting is just that, free hosting, the same as paid hosting. These a good for trialling but they is no free hosting I know of that provides a Good service.
Pros of Free Hosting
- The main pro of course is its free, meaning if there are issues you not going to lose money but if it does turn out bad, you’re going to have wasted some amount of time.
- Good For Testing out things
- free hosting will have very slow servers
- No or very poor Customer Service
- No Emails
- Limited bandwidth and data
- Many Problems can occur
Free Online Site Builders & Hosting
This is what I call sites like Webs and Wix, these sites are great for learning stuff and testing things out. If you just looking for a small blog or website for people you know, it a good idea, mainly because its free. These sites will also offer and upgraded account but in my mind these are very expensive. It much cheaper and professional to go with normal paid hosting from providers like HostGator but of course you have to use scripts of design your own website.
In summery I would like to say, free hosting is an ok decision but in the long term you may want to go with a paid host. If the company also offer paid hosting maybe it would be a good idea to trial it as free but normal this is slower so does not give you are real eyesight into what the hosting is really like. Likewise I will be doing free hosting provider reviews in the near future so stay posted and bookmark us at HostRator!
