When we think of starting a blog or website, then first of all two things are needed. The first domain name and the second hosting, but in today’s time both of these things are getting free, even though the paid service is advised by big bloggers, why ?
free web hosting is provided by a company for a website hosting space and a subdomain. A user can host his blog or website on this. That’s absolutely free. In today’s time, you will find many companies on the internet that provide free web hosting. But have you ever thought that what is the reason behind doing this? Why a company will give you free web hosting.
What is free web hosting and what are its disadvantages ?
Advantages of free Web Hosting ?
The first advantage of this is that you get paid without spending a single penny.
Disadvantages of Free Web Hosting ?
- Top Level Domain
Whichever free hosting companies you have, you do not want to provide top level domain for your website’s web address. They give you a subdomain for your website. Which is an unprofessional web address. The visitors do not take your blog seriously. And if you ask for a custom domain, then they show that the custom domain’s service is paid, not free.
- You do not completely control the Blog
A blog or website that becomes free web hosting does not completely control its website. That’s the whole control of the web hosting company. In its term and condition, the company has written that it has the full right to shut down your website or blog without any notice. And there is no obligation to back up the blog’s data. Even you will not be able to redirect your website. This means that you will not be able to access your website yourself.
- Unwanted Ads
- Your information can be sold
- No or Less Security
There is hardly anything in the name of security on free web hosting, which keeps fear of hackers. The fear of data being stolen always remains. These companies are not responsible for the data being stolen.
- Limited Bandwidth
In such a free web hosting, you get very low bandwidth for your website, which makes it difficult for its operation. Which is not the right thing for a website.
- Low Disk Space
- Loading Time
