There is a lot of free web hosting available out there but it comes with a lot of problems which are beyond your control. Reliability is one of the most important issues brought about by free web hosting.
Imagine if you have more than a year’s file in a free web hosting server and then they suddenly decided to close down their services without informing you? Did you back up your files? Last year there were few high profile incidents that happened. What if those files are important for your online business?
What if your site has been slowly picking up and having loyal customers and suddenly gets closed down. Probably you will say that if I only started with a reliable web hosting company, nothing would have happened to me like this.
Do you have the power to demand if something goes wrong with your website? You will be lucky if there is a technical support that is willing to help you every time there is a problem, usually there is none. It will be very difficult to demand something that is offered to you free of charge.
If something goes wrong to the server, your website will always be on the chopping block and they will not hesitate to close it down. If they cannot find the source of the problem, and which surely will take awhile, they will just have to close all the free accounts connected on the server. If they indeed wanted to fix the problem, you will have to wait before other paid customers are done before they can help you.
But there are also advantages for having a free web hosting plan. It is good for personal blogs, organizations, and projects or you just wanted to play around with your web design. It will be a bad choice for those looking for reliable online business website. If you have a limited budget there are a lot of cheap web hosting plans which can give you peace of mind rather than a free web host.
