    Web Site Hosting For Your Business: Free or Paid? - Free web hosting


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Dozens, even hundreds of free web hosting providers offer their services on the Internet. Could there be one that meets the needs for your business? Hardly, if any.

    Please let me state clearly that this article is not intended to attack or discredit hosts or advertisers. Its only purpose is to assess and understand how can be best met the hosting needs of a business. Any business. And yes, in spite of everything stated here, even the author of this article has resorted at some point in time to the services of free web hosts!

    You probably learned too, and at a very small age, that in life everything comes with a price. However, there it is ... all over the Internet: Free Web Hosting.

    Nothing in this world is free. So why is there free web hosting?

    The definition of the term "free" according to The New Lexicon Webster's Dictionary is: 

    adj. not subject to external restraints or domination; not captive, at liberty; not having to be paid for; unhampered; open to all without restrictions; etc.

    adv. without expense; without penalty
    v.t. to release from constraint, set free

    Therefore a literally free hosting service would mean no restraints, no expenses and no restrictions for the user. Webmasters would design only limited by their imagination and skills. All the space and the bandwidth you would possibly ask for at no cost whatsoever. Real-life scenario? Could anyone really think so?

    Indeed nothing in this world comes without a price, even if it is not apparent. And the price you must pay for free web hosting comes in many forms, as free web hosting providers must pay too for bandwidth, not to mention other costs.

    While some free web hosts require you to have one of their banners on your web site, others place pop up adds, or flashing advertising messages. So it's free for you as long as you fulfill their set of requirements and meet their conditions. In addition to this, you should consider that host's service is free with let's say 25 MB of space; more space means different conditions and you could have to pay for it.
