If you are still learning the ropes of web hosting and you want to set up web pages for yourself, your family, and friends to have a venue for connecting, keeping in touch with one another as well as to learn web designing, free web hosting can be the best alternative for you since it does not have any cost. Here, we will look at the advantages as well as drawbacks of free web hosting.

One benefit that you can get out of free web hosting is that it allows you to have a free web space. In most cases, it contains other things such as helpful templates for building and uploading wizards that would assist you in designing your website. These features will greatly contribute to your efforts as you build a web page. Aside from that, it likewise includes other perks such as free accounts, file transfer using File Transfer Protocol (FTP), and other web based tools for your usage.

In addition, another advantage of free hosting is that you can try out new firms or goods to help you decide whether putting up a business or selling a new item can be lucrative. It can likewise be an avenue for generating traffic to your paid website should you decide to purchase one.

However, there are disadvantages of a free hosting. This kind of hosting offers limited bandwidth. Aside from that, you may encounter a problem with disk space once the volume of traffic and information increases, this may lead to more visitors going to another website. In addition, the advertisements that crop up in your site once in a while would make it look less credible and cheap, thus reducing traffic of visitors in your website. Likewise, free hosting is not required to give you quality uptime and frequent downtimes are beyond your control since you do not pay any charges. So, you would have to learn to live with that fact.

Another problem you may encounter with free hosting is customer support. Since you are not paying anything, chances are these providers would care less about your concerns and inquiries. In this case, you would have to rely on the Frequently Asked Questions page of the site.

Moreover, free hosting does not allow selling of advertisements on your page. Thus, it would be impossible for you to earn an income if you will use this kind of hosting.

Lastly, there is no such thing as free. Companies that claim they can give you free hosting are too good to be true. So don't believe much on the hype.
