  Free Web Hosting

Free web hosting is available in many forms. On some free web hosting providers, websites are allowed only a sub-domain name such as “mywebsite.provider.com.” In other situations websites may be simply a directory such as “provider.com/mywebsite.” In rare situations a free web hosting provider may allow a domain based website such as “mywebsite.com.” For all formats, providers make their money from extensive advertising on the hosted website. This advertisement or banner will automatically be placed on the website, These advertisements are ubiquitous and intrusive.

Free web hosting typically does not have high service levels. There may be a slow connection speed and website uptime is unreliable resulting in frequent outages. The control panel, used to update and maintain the website, may be difficult to use or non-existent. Additional restrictions include small file size, restricted file type and minimal traffic bandwidth.

There is also forum based free web hosting. Forum based free web hosting requires the user to contribute a specific amount of posts to maintain the free account. The posts to the forum add up as points which are used as credits. A specific number of credits must be accumulated. The forum also has advertisement placements. Both forum posting advertisements and website advertisements provide revenue to the provider.

Free web hosting plans are a good choice for non-critical websites which are for fun. A fun site may contain opinions on a topic, images or may be just a way for extended or geographically distant families to have a central location to stay in touch.

For mission critical websites, free web hosting may be a viable alternative as a test platform which will need to be viewed by many people for a short period of time. In this case, be sure to register the domain external to the free web hosting provider. When the decision is made to move to a paid plan, the same URL will still be viable.
