What you should know about free web page hosting

Many hosting providers now are delivering free-of-cost web hosting accounts, winning more and more clients. The cost-free solution is all right if you own a personal website or if you do not want to invest cash for a paid professional web site hosting service. Let's have a look at some of the positive and negative aspects of the free-of-cost web space hosting solution as a whole.

Strong Point Number 1: Free-of-Charge Web Site Hosting is... Free-of-Charge

The biggest asset is that you obtain a top free hosting solution - this would exclude any costs connected with running a personal portal, a weblog, a forum, or even a small-sized business web site. Since the free web site hosting firms are also furnishing standard shared hosting plans, they will do their best to offer you a steady service and to assure you that their hosting servers are dependable. If you receive a good free-of-cost service, it means that you'd receive an even finer paid service, so it is in their own best self-interest to offer you a good cost-free site hosting solution. This will render you more inclined to consider buying a cloud web hosting plan from them in the future.

Positive Point Number Two: Spares You Money

The free hosting service is a decent choice if you do not want to spend money for your site or you are performing your initial steps in web page design and wish to see how well you can do, but you are unwilling to spend money for that. In addition, if you demand a site for a special occasion like a class meeting, a fund raising mission, or regional elections, you may think about a free-of-cost webspace hosting service as you will not be confined by any service agreements and you will not need to pay on a monthly or yearly basis for the website hosting solution, which you may not even avail of once the event has elapsed.

Inconvenience Number 1: Forced Ads

Irrespective of how solid the free-of-charge website hosting service might appear, it also has shortcomings ? exactly because it is cost-free. Since the customers do not pay for their web space hosting packages, the only way for the web hosting service provider to provide this service is to put advertisements on each and every page of your web site. Some service providers even avail of pop-up windows and this may deter your web site visitors from exploring it or from returning again in the near future. The commercials will also make any corporate web page look inadequate ? very few people would purchase anything from a company that cannot afford to pay money for its own personal online portal.

Weak Point Number 2: Restricted Tech Support

There are some technical restrictions too. Since the hosting service is free, the web space, bandwidth and file size quotas are normally quite limited, whereas e-mail or database support is not always present. You can upgrade either the entire plan to a reliable hosting plan, or you can upgrade just one functionality, such as web space, on the basis of the upgrade options offered by the free web hosting distributor that you are availing of. Another inconvenience is that you may be offered limited or no client and tech support and that there is no warranty for the dependability of the hosting servers. Every web hosting vendor wants to provide stable services, but as long as you do not pay a single cent, as is the case with the free-of-cost web page hosting service, you cannot insist on receiving such solutions.

Affordable Hosting - The Worthier Alternative?

Taking into account the strong and weak points of the free webspace hosting solution, you can elect whether you want such a plan or a paid professional one. Certain web hosting web hosting companies such as 'AIDA Host ', for instance, provide a number of regular web hosting plans that are very cheap and immensely exceed the resources delivered by any free webspace hosting plan.
