Free hosting services
It is still possible
today to find free hosting offers.
However, hosting a
web site for free implies several constraints:
- A banner ad, at
the top of each page:
The hosting provider earns 100% of the revenue coming from the ads and
the webmaster get nothing.
- Limited performance:
A server hosts many web sites, actually more than a paid server. It
means less bandwidth. At the end, the web pages take longer to load.
- No domain name:
Some free providers do not allow to use a specific domain name but an
extension of their URL such as:
- No option and
It is not always possible to put a script or a software such as board,
audio and video.
- No technical support:
Technical support is one of the reasons why a provider is free or not.
The support is included in the price with the paid services. It is important
to rely on a fast and efficient technical support to resolve problems
and issues. Free hosting services do not include such technical support.
The webmaster is alone to face issues.
